Breakfast Burritos

I would have to say this is the most asked for recipe that is not on my blog. Well now that problem is fixed! Here it is, the Breakfast Burrito recipe.

Breakfast Burritos - easy to make ahead and freeze!I make breakfast burritos about once a month and freeze them.  My kids love them, and they work for every meal,  it’s nice to know there is something homemade in the freezer, that can be reheated in the microwave in a matter of minutes, for the many times we need a quick meal.

Breakfast Burritos, cinnamon rolls, and fruit make the best team dinner ever!  Kids love it!  I have taken them to my boy’s team in the morning while they watch game film, and just recently I made them for my sons basketball team for team dinner in the evening.  It was a hit!

Breakfast Burritos - easy to make ahead and freeze!The recipe below is a guideline.  You could add black beans to yours, add more peppers or leave them out, add hot peppers, just make them with sausage or leave meat out all together.  Get the idea?!  These babies are versatile!  After skimming through this post you may think YIKES, but have to no fear, Breakfast Burritos are honestly easy to make.  I realize the recipe has a few steps, but nothing complicated.  I’ve been known to enlisted my kiddos to help me roll them up at the end, making the job go much faster.

Lets get started: First you want to clean and dice potatoes, toss them in olive oil and salt and pepper bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees or until browning and crispy.  Remove from oven and allow to cool, while you get started on the rest of the burrito filling.

Breakfast Burritos - easy to make ahead and freeze!A large non stick skillet works the best for this task.  If you do not have a pan big enough you may want to use two pans.  Brown the sausage, drain off excess grease and add in peppers and onions, sauté  for about 5 minutes until vegetables are soft and starting to brown.  Add potatoes to the pan and using your spatula or spoon break them up a bit.  Keep pan heat at medium high and add egg mixture….

Breakfast Burritos - easy to make ahead and freeze!After adding egg mixture to vegetables and meat continue to move filling around, when it looks like most of the egg has been cooked, place cover on pan and turn temperature down low and let cook for 5 minutes.

Breakfast Burritos - easy to make ahead and freeze!Now it’s time to get the assembly line going.  Cheese on the bottom?  Cheese on the top?  It doesn’t really matter. Just don’t forget the cheese ;) unless you can’t eat it for some reason, well then by all means forget the cheese.

 

 

Breakfast Burritos - easy to make ahead and freeze!I use the large burrito sized flour tortillas, you could use any flavor wrap you like.  Place a large spoonful of filling in the center of the tortilla, about 3/4 cup.  Add cheese, and start the wrap.

(The the burrito at in the picture below.  It cracked.  I kept rolling, and wrapped it up.  It is fine.  Just fine ;) )

 

Breakfast Burritos - easy to make ahead and freeze!If you want to freeze the burritos wrap them in plastic wrap, and place them in a freezer safe zip-loc bag (see the picture above).

Or if you are planning on eating them soon after you make them and just want to keep them warm, wrap them in aluminum foil and place them on a baking sheet and place them in the oven on a low temperature 250ish.
