Mum leaves people divided after showing how she preps breakfast for a month
A mum has gone viral after sharing her cooking hack to save time when cooking breakfast for her family.
Amanda Ranit, from Oregon, in the United States, showed how she makes 100 McMuffin style sandwiches at a time before freezing them so she can take a few out for breakfast.
She shared her method on Tiktok in a video which has racked up 755,000 hits, leaving people divided.
In the video, she explained: “I get a lot of questions about how I make these breakfast sandwiches for my family.
“I make about 100 sandwiches at a time.”
Showing off a counter filled with English muffins topped with slices of cheese, she adds: “Add your favourite sliced cheese.
“I prefer Tillamook habanero jack cheese but today my husband requested boring cheddar.
“These ones are sausage. But they’re great with Canadian bacon too.”
Once the frozen patties have been added, the muffins are bagged and stored in the freezer.
In the video, Amanda says she stores the sandwiches in the freezer for up to three months.
And she says the best way to cook them is in an air fryer but they can be heated in the microwave if needed.
Because the sausage patties are pre-cooked before being frozen, it doesn’t take too long to get them hot for breakfast.
And while they are heating up, you can cook an egg to add on top for some extra protein.
But some people weren’t so impressed, as one person commented: “People really eat this everyday,” alongside a vomit emoji.
Another replied: “‘Meal prep’ what a joke.”
But lots of parents praised her for the video and vowed to try out the technique at home.
One person wrote: “A lot more cost effective than the four pack of pre made ones at the store! Love it.”
Another wrote: “Brilliant! Having a plan also saves money. Thanks for the ideas!
A third replied: “I bet that saves you a lot!”
