This month my focus is on building my 90 day supply of food, with freezer meals!

Freezer Cooking - Morning Hot Pockets -

With so many small kids up during all hours of the night, and then begging Daddy for attention in the morning, there usually isn't a lot of time for my husband to have breakfast.

Then while researching I found this post about making breakfast hot pockets.

So I made a double batch of the honey oatmeal bread dough for the outer part of the hot pockets and got enough supplies to make 45 hot pockets.

Eggs were on sale for $0.88 a dozen & I had bought 10 of them (we can eat a dozen for breakfast ... I wasn't worried). So it used 4 dozen eggs ($3.52), 3 packages of bacon ($4.47) & 1 pound of cheese ($2.50). I am not even going to attempt to figure out what the dough costs, but I'd be surprised if it was more than $2. So, for about $12.49 I was able to make 45 morning hot pockets for my husband to grab when he's in a hurry. That comes out to be a little less than $0.28 each ... not bad for the piece of mind it gives! :)

  1. So excited to see this post! My teenagers were fighting over the last 2 hot pockets & I hate buying them because they're so expensive! Thank you!
