Freezer Breakfast Burritos

There are many mornings when my husband has to be out the door by 5am and he needs a good breakfast before running out the door. These burritos are perfect because they are full of protien, delicious, and are ready after 2 minutes in the microwave. We love these burritos! The recipe makes 24 good sized burritos and they hang out in the freezer until we need them. It doesn't get easier than that!


Freezer Breakfast Burritos
Recipe from Mom On Timeout

 lb breakfast sausage
1 lb bacon
1 cup chopped ham
2 pound of red potatoes, cubed into bite size pieces
16 oz cheese (any kind you like)
24 flour tortillas
12 eggs, extra large
1/2 c milk
1/3 c olive oil
1 tsp each: Emeril's Seasoning, Seasoning Salt or any seasoning you prefer
salt and pepper


1. Cook bacon and crumble.
2. Brown the sausage.
3. Fry up the ham. 

Roasted Red Potatoes:
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Dry cubed potatoes with a towel to eliminate any extra water.
3. Toss the potatoes with 1/3 c olive oil, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper. Use additional seasoning (such as Emeril's or Seasoning Salt) if desired.
4. Roast for 30 minutes until golden brown. Start checking at 20 minutes.

Scramble eggs and assemble burritos. Roll up tightly and place seam side down on a baking sheet. Freeze.

Once frozen, wrap individually in plastic wrap and store in a ziploc bag.

To cook, remove plastic wrap, wrap in paper towel, and microwave for 2 1/2-3 minutes.

I so need to make these and keep them ready to go in the freezer - so much better than a Jimmy Dean's frozen breakfast sandwich!!

My 15-year-old daughter has to be out the door at 6:30 a.m. to catch her bus, and I have a hunch she doesn't eat breakfast very often. I'm going to makes these and see if she'll grab one as she leaves. Thanks for such a great idea! :)

I do the same exact thing but with beef and bean burritos! My husband isn't much of a breakfast eater, but if I don't send him to work with lunch, he tends to eat junk food and stuff.
