Hack #1:  Slice English muffins in half horizontally and return to original packing.  Place in sealable bag and place in freezer for up to 3 months.

Hack #2:  Make more than one egg and store them for later use.  For the best quality, I suggest cooking scrambled eggs in an egg ring as this provides for uniform cooking and reheating.  Cook just until set. These eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months. To freeze eggs, place on cookie sheet and place in freezer until firm.  Seal in freezer bag or container and store in freezer. To reheat, thaw or remove from refrigerator and microwave at 20 second intervals just until heated through.
