Sausage and egg bagel bites, anyone? This is an easy freezer recipe from our last camping trip. I wanted something different other than the usual breakfast wraps I make and this was it. It was a big hit and super easy to pull out.
I start by browning our local sausage and draining the excess fat from the pan and set aside. While the meat is browning, I open one dozen mini-whole wheat bagels a part and put them on a cookie sheet ready to go.
Then I scramble a dozen eggs with 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 teaspoon onion salt.
Once the eggs are soft set, I add the crumbled sausage back in and mix thoroughly.
I use a rubber scraper and spoon just enough egg mixture to fit and press with the scraper. I immediately sprinkle the colby jack cheese on top and set each one aside to melt.
Once they are completely cool, I package and freeze for future use. Camping, vacation, grab and go breakfast, snacks or imagine your own event. It’s a whole foods, convenient way to have an easy breakfast on the go without any pots or pans to wash when you eat them. Hey, go ahead and enjoy one now if you’re going to wash a pan or two anyway:)
I package mine in this tupperware container that holds 2 dozen exactly. I have a layer of foil sprayed with cooking spray to keep them from sticking. They go directly into the freezer for my next camping trip.
