Bulk Breakfasts

March.18.2009

This is one of my favorite things to make in bulk – pancakes, waffles and french toast. Keeping them separate is simple – just place a piece of wax paper in between each item and throw them in ziploc baggies!

When you’re ready to eat, just heat them up!

I like to do them in the toaster, to make them a bit crispier, but microwave works just as well! 🙂

Enjoy!!!
