Frozen Breakfast Burritos - Confessions of a Cooking Diva

These burritos are a lifesaver, a serious lifesaver. I am not a productive morning person. I can get up early, but I’m not very good at getting things done for at least 30 minutes. This does not leave a lot of time to make breakfast before work and school.

These are phenomenal and could have a variety of ingredients in them. We like potatoes, eggs, sausage, cheese and some salsa. You could add bacon, ham, onions, peppers, chives, etc. The possibilities are endless.

They took take a bit of time to put together, but if you enlist the help of your spouse or child it will make the whole thing go faster. My husband is the “roller” and I’m the “filler.”

Below I’m going to list my process for making these burritos, but first I want to discuss the reheating process. You can do it two ways – you can allow them to thaw on their own and then heat them in them in the microwave or you can reheat them in their frozen state in the microwave. My husband does the former and I do the later. When heating them in the microwave be sure to take the plastic off and then wrap in a paper towel. I like to heat mine for 1 minute, turn it over and then heat for another 30 seconds. If it’s already thawed you can heat it for less time. As always, times will vary depending on your microwave.

How I make my frozen breakfast burritos:

  • I cook my sausage and then I set it aside to cool.
  • Next, I cook the potatoes. Set aside.
  • After that I cook the eggs. Set aside.
  • I gather my supplies (freezer bags, saran wrap, spoons, all my ingredients) and set up an assembly line.
  • I like to have all my ingredients in bowls with spoons. Makes the process easier.
  • I warm the tortillas for 20 seconds. Helps them to fold with out tearing.
  • On an open tortilla add your ingredients. When I set up my assembly line I don’t put my ingredients in any particular order.Remember not to over stuff the burrito or they will tear when you are rolling them.
  • After filling, roll the tortilla and then wrap in plastic wrap. Make sure all openings are sealed, you don’t want any freezer burn on the burritos.
  • Place burritos in gallon-sized freezer bags in a single layer. I get around 16-18 burritos so I generally use 3 freezer bags.
  • Place them in the freezer. These burritos will last about a month in the freezer.
  • Heat and eat.
