Make-ahead breakfast muffin recipes

Muffins can be made on the weekend and stored in the freezer for quick weekday breakfasts. Cool muffins completely before placing in freezer bags. Label each bag with the date before popping in the freezer. (Make sure you use them within three months!) To reheat, microwave unwrapped muffin on high for 30 seconds or wrap in aluminum foil and heat in the oven at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.

Make-ahead pancake recipes

Think pancakes are only for the weekend? Think again! Make a double batch and store the extras in the freezer. Slip a sheet of wax paper in between each layer and seal in an airtight freezer bag labeled with the date. Pancakes will keep in the freezer for up to six weeks. To reheat, microwave for 60 to 90 seconds at full power, warm in a 375 degree F oven for 8-10 minutes, or let them come to room temperature, then heat in the toaster.
