Breakfast Burritos How To Make Delicious Frozen Breakfasts

Spread the love
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 amazing breakfast burritos. 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! They were one of my favorite things when I’d stay the night at my Aunt’s house. Of course, we never had any left over for freezing then, but there were at least 4 kids and usually more every time.  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! It brings back so many wonderful feelings.

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!!!

How to Make Breakfast Burritos

Ingredients:

Eggs, Milk and Your Choice of Optional Ingredients Below

Optional Burrito Ingredients:

Pick and choose based on your taste preferences. You absolutely do not have to make them all the same! Mix things up by cooking the ingredients separately then adding them in the tortilla shell and rolling them up!

  • Onions
  • Bell Peppers
  • Sausage
  • Bacon
  • Potatoes (you can use any type you’d like, we’ve used fried potatoes, tater tots, hash-browns and even mashed! Leftovers work great for these!)
  • Mushrooms
  • Cheese (any you like)

Recipe Instructions

  1. 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.Breakfast Burrito 'Hash'

2. 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. 😀

3. 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.

4. Place a small amount of the ingredients in tortilla shell, fold both ends inside then roll up the open ends.

Ingredients For Southwest Breakfast Burritos

  • Black Beans
  • Bell Peppers
  • Red Onion
  • Diced Tomatoes (for frozen burritos, drain can)
  • Add fajita seasoning to eggs before cooking
  • Pepper Jack Cheese and Sharp Cheddar

To Freeze Your Breakfast Burritos

If freezing them, let them cool to room temperature then freeze on a cookie sheet, spaced apart so that they aren’t touching. Once they are frozen, put them into a freezer safe container. I highly recommend reusable freezer bags! Due to their thicker plastic, they don’t freezer burn like plastic baggies often do, they are also way better for the environment!

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. If you are worried about the tortilla getting tough, you can loosely wrap it in a moist paper towel or cloth napkin.
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!

      Me too! They are definitely one of the best types of breakfasts! Oddly, it’s hard to find a good one with fast food, I say odd because they are so simple!

    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

    Hi!

    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.
