This is exactly the type of recipe I need right now … so I’m excited to share these Make-Ahead Egg Biscuit Bites with you in today’s new post!
Why Make-Ahead Recipes Are Key
Lately, it seems like all my girls do is come and go with very little time at home in between. They’re back in the school building five days a week (!!) plus juggling clinics and tryouts this month for both their school and travel sport (cheer), upcoming end-of-grade tests, tutoring, and more. It definitely feels like our normal, busy life is officially back and here to stay!
And, rather than cringing when they grab a packaged bar for breakfast on the go or a snack between school and sports, I’ve decided I need to step up my homemade food game with some appealing items that they’ll want to take instead!
So today, I’m sharing the Make-Ahead Egg Biscuit Bites they’ve been loving (and I do serve with a little fresh fruit on the side … always pushing the produce around here!). You can store them either in the fridge for a few days or in the freezer for later, and they are not hard to prepare! These Scrambled Eggs are another great breakfast!
Assembling the Make-Ahead Egg Biscuit Bites
How to Freeze, Defrost, and Reheat Egg Biscuit Bites
Putting them away in the freezer is the easy part, but there are a couple of ways to do it.
How to Freeze
Wrap each individual Egg Biscuit in a strip of parchment paper, carefully place them in one big freezer-safe bag together (don’t forget to mark the contents and date), and freeze.
How to Defrost and Reheat
I personally pull out any frozen breakfast items the night before (whether it’s a biscuit, burrito, muffins, waffles, or pancakes) and let it defrost slowly in the fridge overnight. Then heat it up in the microwave for about 20 to 30 seconds.
If you weren’t able to defrost overnight, then reheat it in the microwave on 50% power for a little longer.
You can also heat it in the toaster oven at 350 for 3 to 5 minutes. You can take the top of the biscuit off for more even reheating.
