So I went to the grocery and bought 2 dozen English Muffins. Came home and O Wise One and I toasted them and then cooked 2 dozen eggs in a skillet. Cooked up some homemade venison breakfast sausage patties and a slice of cheese on each one. It's the Hickery Holler version of the McMuffin. If I had really been energetic I would have made my own English Muffins. And maybe went to the Amish Dairy and got some homemade farmers cheese. Maybe next time.
They were then wrapped individually in cellophane and frozen in large ziploc bags. Ready to take out of the freezer on a cold morning and pop in the microwave to eat while waiting for the school bus. Or maybe sitting in that deer stand wating for the sun to come up.
We were on a roll the 24 sandwiches got rid of 2 dozen eggs. We then scrambled up another 2 dozen eggs. A pound and a half of sausage and some hash brown potatoes. Some shredded cheese, diced onions and jalapenos and we had the fixings for another 24 breakfast burritos. Wrapped individually and frozen then also put in large ziploc bags.
The remainder of the eggs were put into freezer containers and frozen. These will be taken out and defrosted in the refrigerator and used for scrambled eggs in the morning and holiday baking for those upcoming winter holidays.
So when the days get shorter and the chickens slow down on their laying. I will still have plenty of eggs for those pumpkin pies and bread and any other baking I want. Tucked safely away in the freezer.
