I am not much of an egg fan but the men in the house love eggs and are both big breakfast people when I am willing to make breakfast. I am much more a fan of fruit, toast and yogurt or cereal. But, since I like to oblige the man with a healthy and tasty breakfast since he works so hard, this easy Freezer Breakfast 150 Calorie Sausage Egg Scramble has become one of my go-to meals to make him. Not only is it fairly quick and easy to make, but it is great for large batches as well as separating and freezing for him to reheat quickly on his way out the door in the mornings. This is especially helpful for me since he often leaves for work between 5am-6am and I don't always feel like waking up and cooking a meal that early in the morning.
