Now we're talkin'.

As y'all have been interested in cooking more this month (yay for shelf-cooking!) I have had an influx of requests asking for some of our quick and easy breakfast ideas. Mama J heard you!

There you have it! Two of our favorite freezer meals PLUS the bonus of Nana's famous buttermilk syrup. Here are the recipes for you:

Here are the products I used:

  • Toaster bags. Great for re-heating things you normally wouldn't stick in the toaster, like cheesy things and sandwiches!
  • Silicone baking mats. These bad boys are inexpensive, and NECESSARY in the kitchen! Any time something touches my oven, they are baked on one of these bad boys. It keeps things from sticking/burning, which is a necessity for me as a dysfunctional cook.
  • Food processor. THIS is the one that I have, but it looks like there are tons of options. I like having a large capacity so I can crush several cups of food at once.

Here are the recipes I made:


I used THIS RECIPE from the Pioneer Woman cookbooks, because I'm obsessed with her and you can NEVER go wrong. She is my spirit animal. I doubled this recipe, next time I will triple it because we eat these bad boys so fast!


(Get printable recipe HERE)


  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • ½ Cup buttermilk (if you don’t have buttermilk, use ½ C whole milk mixed with 1T vinegar that has sat for 5 minutes.)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • ½ tsp Baking soda


Melt butter. Add sugar and buttermilk. Stir well, let come to a boil. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and baking soda, stir. Syrup will become foamy. Let it rest for a few minutes. Serve warm, store leftovers in the fridge.

This is also a Pioneer Woman Recipe (surprise surprise). You can add ham, veggies, whatever you'd like! I kept mine plain for my picky children. *Enter eye roll.* I doubled this recipe, you could easily triple it!

  1. Love it! I am Pioneer Woman obsessed too. Her recipes are always delicious. She is a great inspiration as living way out on the ranch forces her to cook everything and pull from the freezer. No pizza delivery at the last second for her! My favorite freezer breakfasts are egg sandwhiches that are so yummy, healthy, and less expensive than any fast food restaurant!

  2. I love egg muffins!! I’ve actually only made them once, so thank you so much for reminding me about them! I put in tomatoes and chunks of veggie-ham (I’m vegetarian) and it was so good!

    Thank you for the french toast sticks recipe, yummm! Those might end up as dessert 🙂

  3. I have to say something! I just made this recipe and omgosh is this stuff gold!!!!!! I hate french toast, like since I was a kid. Never ate it, in anyway shape or form..ever! But I have a Fun, Cheap or Free problem lol… so I tried it for my kids after we watched the cute video of how to make them. The words haven’t even been invented yet to describe how good these are… and the butter milk syrup just puts it out of this world. It made 30 sticks and I seriously ate 5 of them! I’m a die hard fan now! Thank you so much for all you do and your creative ways Jordan!!!!

  4. These turned out great! My kids loved them and were trying to chow down on them before they were even cool enough to handle!

    I have a hard time following recipes and always add my own twist. For this, I added brown sugar in the egg mix instead of granulated and added the melted butter to the egg mix, used plain corn flakes instead of Cap’n Crunch( also added almonds to the cereal when grinding) and used maple sugar in the cereal mix instead of granulated.
