Do you have time each day to cook a four course meal? Creating egg benedict each morning?
Um, yea, here in reality – me neither!
I don’t have much extra time with 3 kids, a full time job, my blog business, doing laundry and dishes, and more! With school starting just around the corner, I’m gearing up for morning routines. I barely have time to get myself ready for work each day. When school begins, I need ways to save time getting the kids ready including preparing a filling breakfast. That’s why I’m so happy that Jimmy Dean has several breakfast options that are fast and easy to make!
The sausage biscuits are the perfect size for my kids. The sausage, egg, and cheese croissant is perfect for my husband. And for me? I HEART HASH BROWNS! Raise your hand if you knew that meat lovers hash browns existed. Well, I had no idea! So tonight for dinner (I couldn’t wait for breakfast) I tried one out. The directions are so simple! Take the hash brown out of the packaging and put into the crisping sleeve. Microwave for only 2 minutes and let it cool for 2-3 minutes. Viola! That easy!
Did I like the meat lovers hash browns? Oh yes!
Sometimes using a microwave for cooking can make things like hash browns squishy but this one was crispy. It also was delicious, has 9 grams of protein, and only took 2 minutes to cook. Perfect for rushing in the morning to get out the door. When I’m in a giant hurry – like always, the croissant packaging is super handy to be able to pull out a sandwich quickly as I’m running around like a crazy person trying to get everyone out of the house in the morning.
Breakfast isn’t the only meal I need to be able to save time with. Also, let’s face it kids can be super picky eaters. Thankfully my kids like chicken nuggets. And when the chicken nuggets are in the shapes of dinosaurs, my kids think dinner is more fun and will eat well.
Tyson has dinosaur shaped 100% All Natural chicken nuggets in these super fun shapes. It was easy to find these in the freezer section in Kroger along with all the Jimmy Dean breakfast goodies. My kids’ favorite dinosaurs are the T-Rex’s!
Chicken nuggets paired with some veggies make a very nutritious dinner for my family. It’s super simple – just cook 5 nuggets for 1.5 minutes in the microwave and tah dah! Dinner is done! Kids are happy with eating dino-shaped chicken nuggets; momma’s happy with having a meal that is easy to make and doesn’t take much time at all.
These are the types of foods that are so important to me with the hectic pace of school beginning soon. I’m so glad to be able to make a delicious dinner at home that doesn’t take up so much of my nights when I get home from work. This gives me more time with my kids. I’m also so glad to have a selection of breakfast items that my kids and I can eat before school or work that won’t take up too much time to cook.
Saving time when creating healthy meals is always a win-win. How do you save time preparing meals?
