Breakfast Burritos: Make Ahead & Freeze!!

Breakfast Burritos are delicious, and if you aren’t a morning person, you’ll love having these on hand!  We sure do!
Breakfast Burritos: Make Ahead & Freeze!!

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!

Breakfast Burritos are a staple in my family, I remember having them as a kid and we would devour them all!  Of course, we never had any left over for freezing then.  They also weren’t a treat we had often.

Another treat that we didn’t get often was Chocolate Gravy and sourdough biscuits.  I haven’t mastered the biscuits yet, but my Granny’s gravy is always special to me!

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!!!

Breakfast Burritos
Breakfast Burritos Make them your Own!

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 tater 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.
Breakfast Burritos Assembly process
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!

Breakfast Burritos Baking 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!

To Freeze Your Breakfast Burritos

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.

From Freezer to The Plate

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!

    I love breakfast burritos! I never thought about making them ahead and freezing them. I didn’t think it was a thing that would hold well.

    This sounds like a great idea I really like burritos and I can’t eat when I first get up in the morning. I would be able to take these to work with me and heat them up. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe and idea

    Breakfast burritos are a staple at home. We usually fill them with scrambled eggs and lots of cheese. These look like a yummy alternate version. I might try them sometime.

    I found your blog through Sugar Bee’s Take-a-Look Tuesday.
