Things we never had in our freezer/refrigerator/pantry growing up:
poptarts, bagel bites, dunakroos, that cool cheese dip with the red spatula thing and hot pockets.
Things all our friends had:
see above list.
Obviously, I’m grateful for my mom’s discretion now, but back in middle and high school it was just another thing to add to the list of how uncool my parents were.
I actually have no need for on-the-go breakfasts most of the time. I work from home and Ulysses doesn’t leave the house until 9:30 in the morning so breakfast is actually the one meal I don’t feel rushed to consume. It just seemed like a fun idea to recreate the breakfast microwave phenomenon that most kids (unfortunately) enjoy and to pack it filled with ingredients that I can actually feel good about eating now that I know better than to trust something that can be ready in 2 minutes in the microwave from the frozen food aisle. Especially foods that come with annoying jingles.
The great thing about these are their versatility. I stuffed them with eggs, chicken sausage, peppers and onions but the possibilities are endless. Cheese is an obvious possible addition but cleaning the cheese grater is among my top 10 most hated kitchen chores and so it’s deliciousness was sacrificed for the greater good.
If you’ve got a busy schedule I can’t imagine how spending 30 minutes on a weekend to prep these for the rest of the week wouldn’t be worth your time.
Hot pockets! *DING*
(don’t tell me you haven’t been singing that since seeing the title)
