Freezer Breakfast Burritos

It's a new year, and of course new resolutions. One, attempting to have healthier breakfast options for my family. When my boys where home, I found it worth the time and effort to get up and scramble some eggs or make something "hearty". Now that it is my two girls at home, they often just want something quick and on the go. We have done the hard boiled eggs, bagels and cream cheese, so I wanted to add something new and tasty to our repertoire.

These didn't take long to assemble and are quick to grab out of the freezer, reheat in the microwave and go. The other thing I like about these breakfast burritos, you can really add whatever your family likes. The ingredient list is just a suggestion, I added some hash brown potatoes to mine. You could make a couple this way, some others another way, depending on the likes of your kids.



Breakfast Burritos

12 eggs
1 lb sausage or bacon
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
12 8" round flour tortillas

Fry bacon or sausage until done. Mix eggs together, drain pan of most of the grease then cook scrambled eggs however you desire. Warm tortillas in microwave for about 30 seconds. Take one tortilla and put about 1/4-1/2 cup of eggs down the middle. Add some sausage/bacon and cheese. Roll up like a burrito folding one end in.
I then wrapped my breakfast burrito in parchment paper. After all the burritos are made and in parchment paper, I put them in a large ziplock bag and put them in the freezer.

Remove breakfast burrito from freezer, microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds on 80 percent (you will have to see what works best for your microwave through trial and error) and enjoy.

*My husband said he thought they would be good with a little salsa added when making the burritos. You could also do some cooked green pepper, different cheeses, cooked onion or green onion.
