If you are looking for a quick, inexpensive breakfast then these freezer breakfast burritos are perfect. They can be made with all different kinds of ingredients to make them work for your family. I make around 10-20 at one time and then put them all in the freezer. They can be warmed up in the microwave in about 2 minutes. They are great for a fast breakfast on the go.
I start by scrambling eggs, I do a dozen eggs for 12 burritos. Then, while they are cooling I lay out aluminum foil on the counter and put the tortillas on top of the foil. Once the eggs have cooled then I add eggs on top the tortillas.
Then you can cook your meat and whatever else you would like to add. My son loves hash browns and cheese, my husband loves bacon and cheese.
Once I have the meat and or hash browns I add those on top the eggs. I fold them by folding the ends in first and then fold sides in tightly. Then I roll them up in the aluminum foil.
I like to put them in a Tupperware in the freezer. I have one color tupperware for meat burritos and one for vegetarian burritos.
They are best if you place them from the freezer to the fridge the night before. Then give them about 1 minute in the microwave. If you are doing directly from the freezer to the microwave give it around 2 minutes. It’s a great quick and easy meal on the go. I can make 12 breakfast burritos for under $6 or less than $.50 each. This is so much cheaper than going through the drive thru.
