Perfect Breakfast Burritos {Freezer-Friendly}

breakfast burrito pinnable


We all know how Monday goes… Just had a great weekend, woke up to a major “to-do” list, and you can’t even get the kids out of bed. Once they’re up, you gotta make sure each one is wearing clean matching clothes and has all of the papers they need signed. Sometimes they can’t find their backpacks, or their other shoe. And sometimes you have a massive migraine and you’ve got about 12 minutes to be out the door.

Oh, but you also have to get food into their bellies before you can think about finding your keys.

Mornings like these, I like to break out the breakfast burritos from the freezer. All I have to do is warm them in the microwave, and serve! Super easy, super quick, and it makes the whole morning seem less stressful.

The burritos themselves are very delicious, and filling. Imagine a bowl of amazing scrambled eggs with peppers, onions, and sausage. Now imagine its wrapped in a tortilla for convenient consuming. Yes. That’s exactly what your Monday needs! Is it not?

They are also loaded with protein to keep everyone fully charged for the day ahead.

Here’s how I make it:


Saute the onions, the green pepper, and the sausage in the butter until the meat is browned. Beat the eggs and the milk together and pour it into the skillet with the onions and peppers. Add the salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until eggs are set.


Scoop 1/2 cup egg mixture onto tortillas.


Sprinkle with cheese, and fold the tortilla up like a burrito.


Freeze or put all burritos in a baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until heated through.

Freezer Instructions:

Wrap burrito in a sheet of foil. Seal tightly and place in freezer bags. When bag is full, remove all air and seal. Freeze.

To serve: Remove foil and put damp paper-towel-wrapped burrito in microwave. Reheat for around one minute. Serve with salsa.

Here’s the recipe:

    How many burritos does this recipe make and how many to a serving?

    • It makes about 20 burritos. A serving is 1-2 burritos. I normally eat 1 1/2 burritos and give the other half to my two-year-old along with some fruit for her breakfast. I hope this helps!

    When you open one of the burrito that was freezed, how do the eggs looked? Mine looks brownish rather than how they were yellow when placed in the burrito. Just want to make sure that’s normal.
