I did another Freezer Cooking session on Wednesday and it was really successful!
I love that cooking and baking ahead cuts down significantly on the time I need to spend cooking and baking and cleaning up the kitchen each week!
Here are the recipes I made this week:
- Pumpkin Spice Waffles
- Crockpot Baked Potatoes
- Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken
- Egg & Sausage Breakfast Bites
And here are lots of pictures, videos, and details on how it all went down:
First off, I made Egg & Sausage Breakfast Bites. I used ground turkey instead of sausage since I got such a good deal on ground turkey when I went grocery shopping and I left out the veggies because we didn’t have them.
These were SOO good. SOO good! And they were incredibly easy to make!
I shot a video here while I made them if you want to watch it. And you can see how crazy simple these are to make!
Also, I used the Silicone Muffin Cups for the first time and was pleasantly surprised with how well they worked and how easy they were to clean and wash! I’m definitely sold on using these — especially because they kept the muffin pan so clean and easy to wash!
Next up, I made the Crockpot Baked Potatoes. This was my first time to make baked potatoes this way and it was so easy, as well.
The only thing I will mention is that they took longer to bake through then the recipe said they would. This would be such a great way to make Baked Potatoes if it’s hot in the summer or you’re having a big group of people over for a Baked Potato Bar!
If you’re interested, I shot a quick video here while I was making them. You can laugh at my exercise shorts and how I got my shirt all wet while washing the potatoes!
I also made the Pumpkin Spice Waffles (and forgot to get a picture of them once they were baked!). These were good, although they were almost too sweet for me. If I make them again, I’d cut back on the amount of sugar in them.
And last but not least, I made Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken. This recipe was the BOMB. So, so, so easy. And it turned out beautifully and incredibly moist and delicious. I’d highly recommend this recipe!
I also threw together a pan of the French Toast Bake using eggs I got for $0.49 at Aldi and Bread I got marked down at Kroger. I didn’t get a picture of this, but I’m going to have to make it again soon and take pictures and share how I’ve tweaked the recipe because it is SOO good!
