Freezer Breakfast Burritos

There are some mornings when you just don’t have time to sit down to eat breakfast. These burritos are perfect for those busy mornings when you need a quick (and delicious) breakfast on-the-go. You will need:

  • Bacon (or breakfast sausage)
  • Eggs
  • Tortillas
  • Cheese

I use 2 pieces of bacon and 1 egg per taco, so buy your ingredients according to how many burritos you would like. I cook my bacon in the skillet. It’s a little more hands on than cooking it in the oven, but it takes way less time! The key is to keep flipping it to ensure it doesn’t burn.

1. Heat a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat until a drop of water sizzles when you drop it in. Cook however many slices will fit in your skillet at a time. Make sure the bacon gets good and crispy! As the bacon finishes cooking I put it on a plate with a paper towel to help absorb some of the grease. Once you have cooked all of your bacon drain most of your bacon grease off (I usually keep glass jars for this purpose. It doesn’t stink anything up I promise!) You want to reserve some grease to cook your eggs in. I know, it sounds horribly unhealthy but that’s what gives your eggs some rockin’ flavor.

2. Cook however many eggs you will need over medium high heat. Make sure your skillet is good and hot! This ensures that your eggs will cook through evenly and quickly. I just crack the eggs straight into the skillet and scramble them up. I also add salt and pepper at this point. Once you’ve cooked your eggs you can put them on the same plate as your bacon or a different plate (I like to do the same plate. Fewer dishes that way)

3. Next you’ll begin assembling your burritos. Like I said earlier, I do 2 slices of bacon and 1 egg per burrito. Layer on your bacon, egg, then cheese into the flour tortilla. (I like to add a sprinkle of Julio’s seasoning to the burritos, just a preference) Roll up your burritos and wrap each one in a paper towel. Freeze them individually on a tray and then put them in Ziplock freezer baggies. When you’re ready to eat one, just pop it in the microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds and you’ve got an easy-peazy (and totally awesome) on-the-go breakfast! Enjoy y’all!
