Frozen Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

This year will be the first year that I have 2 children in school. If that is not stressful enough, they will be at two different schools, starting and ending at two different times.

In an effort to make the first few weeks go smoothly, I took a morning to prepare easy hearty breakfasts that the kids can unwrap, microwave, and eat without my help.

They love the prepackaged breakfast sandwiches, but I hate the price. With the help of Grocery Outlet (and their awesome deals) I was able to make 12 of these for a fraction of the cost of the prepared boxed versions.

While they are not hard to make, they are a bit time consuming, but well worth the effort for easy school mornings! Each ingredient needs to be cooked, then frozen in one layer on a cookie sheet. For example, start with the cheese. Slice desired amount of cheese and place on a cookie sheet. Freeze for 1 hour. Follow with the bacon or sausage…cook then freeze, etc etc. This is done to eliminate a soggy breakfast sandwich. When everything is frozen individually, you can layer the sandwich, wrap in wax paper then saran wrap, and stick in the freezer. When you are ready to eat, remove from the freezer, remove plastic wrap, microwave for 2 minutes and you have a sandwich that tastes like it has just been cooked. You can also make these with english muffins!
