How to Freeze Breakfast Burritos
While I was pregnant, and shortly after Jack was born, Forrest worked an early morning custodial job. To say it was miserable on many levels is probably the understatement of the year.
How to Make Frozen Breakfast Burritos
Breakfast Burrito Ingredients
The sky is the limit when it comes to making frozen breakfast burritos – you can do so many different types of fillings.
I always recommend having scrambled eggs, some kind of other protein, and some kind of vegetable. Here are some different variations on what you can use:
- Hash browns (square or shredded)
- Sweet Potatoes
- Sausage (pork or turkey)
- Bacon (pork or turkey)
- Black Beans
- Shredded cheese
You will need to use flour tortillas for these – you can use white flour tortillas, if you want them to be healthier, you can opt for multigrain or whole wheat. Make sure you get the burrito sized tortillas – if you are making them for smaller children, you can either cut them in half and freeze them that way, or you can get soft taco sized tortillas.
In addition to the ingredients, you will need:
- Cookie sheets
- Plastic Wrap
- Gallon Sized Freezer Bags
- Mix ‘n Chop (optional but very helpful)
Breakfast Burrito Assembly
You can read more details in the recipe at this end of post about how to cook all the ingredients, but here is a basic overview of assembly.
You want to make sure you let the filling cool completely to room temperature before you start assembling the breakfast burritos. This will prevent them from getting soggy.
