Homemade Frozen Breakfast Burritos

Snapshot 2 (2-10-2014 10-20 PM)It’s no secret that I love freezer meals. I love the convenience and simplicity of them. I think sometimes we forget that freezer meals do not have to be only for dinner. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But sometimes, the mornings are just so hectic and we don’t have time to prepare a good wholesome breakfast. There is always cereal, but having a nice warm meal in the morning is so much nicer, especially during these cold winter mornings. These Frozen Breakfast Burritos are so simply to make. Enjoy them as is, or spice them up with a little salsa and sour cream! Here’s what you do…

Ingredients:

16 whole wheat burrito size tortillas

10 eggs, beaten (I use large eggs) *Do not add any liquid to the eggs

10-12 oz. of shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese (10-12 oz. depending on how much cheese you like)

1 lb. of breakfast sausage, bacon or ham (optional)

Brown your breakfast meat in a pan. If you are using bacon or ham, cook it up and then dice it. If your using sausage, break it up with a wooden spoon while its browning. Once the meat is browned, add the beaten eggs to the pan and scramble until the eggs are cooked well and are no longer runny. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes.

Place the tortillas on a microwave safe dish and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 1 minute, or until the tortillas are warmed and pliable. Place 1/4 cupDSC00009 of the egg and meat mixture on the tortilla, add some cheese, and roll the tortilla. Tuck in the ends of the tortilla and roll again. Once all of the burritos are made, wrap each one individually in plastic wrap and place tortillas in a couple gallon size zip lock bags. Store in the freezer.

When ready to eat, unwrap a burrito from the plastic wrap, place on a microwave safe dish and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave on high for 50 seconds. Turn the burrito over and microwave for another 50 seconds, or until the burrito is warmed through.

Enjoy!
