Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast Burritos are a hearty breakfast ready to go in less than 3 minutes!

Sometimes–or maybe all the time!–breakfast is a hurried affair. Breakfast Burritos are ready to eat in 3 minutes if frozen, less than 1 and a half minutes if refrigerated.  You can’t go through the drive through in that amount of time!  You can’t beat a homemade meal either.  When I make these, I know exactly what is in them; not the dozens of ingredients in packaged food.  Yes, we eat packaged but we try to keep that to a minimum.  It is better for us and cheaper too.  

It took me 17 minutes to build and wrap 8 Breakfast Burritos; that is not bad!  That is not counting cooking the eggs so add maybe 10 minutes to the front end of that time for cooking.  

My sausage was already cooked and thawed from the freezer so that cut out time too.  When I cook ground beef, I try to plan to have enough to cook extra for the freezer and also some ground sausage too while I am at it.  That way, I can get a lot of meat cooked and only dirty the skillet once; you can NOT beat that! 🙂

We like to serve these with salsa instead of including it in the wrap.  It seems to freeze and heat up better that way.  Some people don’t like eggs after they have been frozen (cough, cough, 2nd son 🙂 ) and some have no problem with them.  If you are one who does not  like the small change in texture, just keep them in the refrigerator for up to a week.

I like to change them up; sometimes ham, sometimes sausage, sometimes mozzarella or pepper jack or cheddar cheese, white wraps, green or red; make any variety you like!

This skillet is so great for cooking large batches of eggs or meat.  If you are cooking both sausage and eggs, cook the sausage first and use some of the grease to cook the eggs in; yummy!

Instructions
  1. Gather your ingredients.
  2. Scramble eggs and cook in sprayed skillet.
  3. Divide egg into 8 equal sections for easy and equal filling.
  4. Layer egg, sausage and cheese, leaving room on each end.
  5. Pull side ends toward middle (the sides without filling).
  6. Now roll it up tightly from the other direction. This keeps the filling from falling out.
  7. Wrap each in plastic wrap. I find it easiest to do it this way.
  8. Put all together in a large ziplock bag and store in refrigerator for up to a week or freezer for up to 3 months.
  9. To reheat; from refrigerator--1 minute, flip and another 30 seconds. If still cold inside, add 15 seconds more until hot. From freezer--1 minute, flip, 1 minute, flip, 30 seconds, flip, cut in half (optional but seems to help the middle heat through) and 30 more seconds. Our microwave needs a total of 3 minutes but flipping helps it heat evenly.
