Breakfast is a big hit around our house. Many times we have it for the evening meal. Is that called brupper or brinner? Still trying to figure that out. Anyway…. Last night we had breakfast burritos so I thought I’d share a recipe for making and freezing them.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 pound cooked breakfast meat (sausage, ham, bacon… whatever you like)
1 – 10oz. can Rotel (tomatoes and green chilies) drained
1 cup cooked rice
2 cups shredded cheese (I prefer cheddar jack)
1 dozen eggs
1/2 cup milk
24 medium sized tortillas (I prefer whole wheat)
Crack eggs into bowl and add milk. Whisk until mixed. Add your favorite scrambled egg spices. (I prefer a little Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and a couple dashes of Worcestershire Sauce) Cook the egg mixture in a pan until completely scrambled. Add scrambled eggs, rice , Rotel and breakfast meat in a large bowl and mix.
Warm the tortillas slightly (a couple seconds in the microwave helps make them more pliable).
Place 1 tortilla on a piece of aluminum foil (approximately 12″x12″ )
Next add a scoop of the completed filling to the tortilla and sprinkle with cheese.
Fold into a burrito and roll in the foil. You can see the whole process and how to roll the burritos in this YouTube video I made:
Depending on the size of the tortilla and how full you fill them you should get 20-24 burritos.
Place all the burritos in freezer safe bags and put in the freezer.
When you want a burrito take it from your freezer, remove the aluminum foil, and microwave. In our microwave 2 minutes at 50% power is perfect. Then re-wrap it in the foil and you’re ready to take and eat it wherever you want. A cup of coffee, one of these and a piece of fruit will keep you full until lunchtime!
