These are great for on the go breakfasts. Typically, I make enough to have breakfast, then freeze the rest for busy days. I make them all year long so that when we are in a hurry or just don’t want to cook, all we have to do is heat and eat! This recipe has loads of room for modification! You can add cheese or whatever you want! Just make sure whatever you add will be okay to freeze and re-heat so that you don’t get soggy burritos!!!
Start by browning 1 lb of sausage with onion and bell pepper if you please. Or you can make them with a package of bacon, chopped up into pieces.
****Note: I realize this picture is not all that attractive, I PROMISE they taste better than this one looks! LOL*****
Add cooked potatoes. Originally, we fried the potatoes but I’ve modified it for convenience sake. You can use any leftover potatoes (except mashed). In this version I used tator tots we had left over. Last night I made them and used hash browns. I like to season the potatoes with pepper. We don’t use salt. 😀
In a separate bowl, whisk desired amount of eggs and a little milk. I used 8 in this one I think. You can also sneak in powdered eggs with some of the real eggs to save on groceries! No one can taste the difference as long as real eggs are there, too. If you do use powdered eggs, use milk instead of water. Adding the milk helps make the eggs fluffy.
*******If you want to add cheese, add it with the egg mixture.
When it’s all done, you have options! You can eat the mixture like tacos or bake them. For burritos, roll the mixture up by making a line with the mixture, then fold in the ends and roll them up!
Bake for ten minutes at 350 degrees, then turn them over and bake on the other side another 10 minutes.
Add salsa or sour cream if you like and enjoy!
If freezing them, let them cool to room temperature then freeze on the cookie sheet. Once they are frozen, put them into a freezer safe container. To re-heat there are more options! You can either thaw ahead of time, thaw and heat in the microwave, or simply reheat in the oven. For convenience sake, we typically thaw and heat in the microwave.
Feel free to post your modifications in the comment area!!! I think it would be great to add cilantro if you aren’t freezing it, but my hubby hates cilantro so we don’t ever add it!
