Saving Money on Breakfast

Today I made 30 sausage biscuits for the freezer in an effort to save money on breakfast costs. 

We've gotten into the habit of stopping at McDonald's two or three times a week to buy either Sausage Biscuits or Sausage McMuffins off the Dollar Menu. That was adding up to around $15 or so every week. 

Today I bought some sale priced Swaggerty's sausage and sale priced Grands biscuits and made my own sausage biscuits. 

I wrapped each one in aluminum foil and put them in the freezer. Now all I have to do for breakfast is take one out and remove the foil, wrap it in a paper towel and stick it in the microwave for less than a minute. 

The savings are significant.

Swaggerty's Sausage - 30 patties - $7.68
Grands Biscuits - 3 tubes - $3.96
Total - $11.64

Price of each biscuit - 39 cents
Price of 30 Sausage Biscuits from McDonald's - $30.00
 Savings: $18.36

Yearly Savings - $220.32

  1. Love it! Great cost cutting solution. : )

  2. Thank you, Carol. They have really come in handy since I made them. Don't know why I didn't do it sooner. Will have to keep them on hand from here on out.
