Breakfast Burritos- A Quick Freezer Breakfast

This weekend I made a batch of breakfast burritos to put in the freezer to add some variety to our breakfasts over the next few weeks.  I have seen several bloggers post about freezing and reheating breakfast burritos, so we decided to give it a shot.  We ate some this morning, and I took a poll- success!

1 lb sausage
1 dozen eggs
2 medium potatoes grated & cooked as hash browns
Onions (I used to season hash browns)
1 cup Grated Cheese
12-15 Burrito Style Tortillas
(we used taco size tortillas & it was hard to wrap them very well)
Cook sausage, scramble eggs, and cook & season hash browns.
Place eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, and cheese on each tortilla & fold burrito style.  Then wrap with plastic wrap.  We were able to fit ours in small snack size ziploc bags.  Then we placed them all in a big freezer bag to freeze. 

Reheating Instructions:
Remove from wrapping & microwave for .75 min.  Turn over & heat another .75 min or until thawed and warm.  As they thaw, water/liquids can pool at the bottom of the burrito.  Turning the burrito cures that.

  1. Another trick to heating any kind of tortilla is to wrap it in a paper towel when heating. Same goes with breaded chicken.
