    Default Breakfast Burritos

    I found this recipe and thought that these would be great to have on hand for DH's breakfasts. I'm positive that he would like these.

    Breakfast Burritos

    For a quick grab-and-go breakfast, make up your own breakfast burritos and freeze them. We like ours with just fried potatoes, scrambled eggs, and cheese, but you could easily add cooked bacon or sausage.

    12 flour tortillas
    6 eggs, scrambled
    6 potatoes, diced and fried
    grated cheese
    cooked and diced bacon or sausage (optional)
    salsa (optional)
    Scramble the eggs the way you normally would and cook up the potatoes. Bake the bacon or fry up the sausage.

    Soften the tortillas so they'll be more pliable. I have a 99 cent tortilla warmer that goes in the microwave and works great.

    Lay out the tortillas and add the filling ingredients. Roll up, tucking the ends in first. Wrap in plastic wrap, then place all the burritos in a gallon freezer bag so you can find them easily.

    To eat, heat in the microwave a few minutes until warmed through.

    Thanks for the great recipe. We love breakfast burritos at our house, but normally only have them on the weekend. I wasn't sure about freezing them, so I haven't tried. I will now.

    Thanks, i think i will fix some and add copped onions,and sweet peppers to the potatoes sounds good.How long do you think they would have to be microwaved after frozen?

    From frozen state maybe 2 minutes? I think I'll most likely pull these out the night before and stick in the fridge to thaw by morning.

    I've made these for several years, and not just the breakfast style either. Generally, I'll put some thick chili in with the rest of the stuffings, as well.

    I wrap them in waxed paper before putting in a big bag in the freezer. When I'm ready to eat, I just put them on a plate in the microwave, with the paper over the top, and nuke for 2 minutes.

    Talk about timing...I was just coming on to ask if anybody makes these, and how well do they freeze and heat. So thanks Polly!

    I make mine a tad different, but I don't freeze them. I'll try this recipe and see how it'll be for us now that DH will be commuting from here to work every weekend.

    I am planning on making breakfast burritos for the first time tomorrow morning!

    We are going to cook up a bunch of chopped potatoes, chopped onions and chopped green pepper ahead of time (tonight maybe). In the morning I'll put the cooked onion and peppers in the scrambled eggs. And I have a can of black beans.

    Maybe I'll have enough left over for taking to work on Monday!

    I used to make these once a month~ I also used wax paper or something to keep them apart.

    I also make sausage biscuits, i would buy the biscuits at sams club and make sausage patties and then i had a form and would put it in the skillet and fry an egg for it. i would assemble all of these and freeze~

    If you think of something you want to freeze and they sell it at the grocery store frozen of course you can freeze it!

    Last weekend I made my first breakfast burritos and they were great!! I had leftovers and froze a couple of them and took them to work during the week. They were great reheated!

    Then during the week I also made up some regular bean and chicken burritos and put them in the freezer. I have been using them this weekend as we have a busy weekend planned of day trips away from home all day.

    We took a cooler and had chicken burritos for lunch today. It kept us from stopping at Subway for lunch. We were near our parked truck all morning. I set a couple burritos on the dashboard to heat up in the sun and they were nicely warm at lunchtime!

    I have some more burritos set out to take with us on our long day trip out of town tomorrow.

    Making and freezing burritos will be a regular thing for us now. This really solves a field trip lunch issue for us. We get tired of PBJ sandwiches on field trips all the time.

    I made these all the time when my kids were younger. I would make 3 different kinds and make around 60 of them a month and freeze them. They were a great item to pop in the microwave and go.
