Breakfast Burritos (freezer cooking)

Breakfast. The most important meal of the day, right? Also, the hardest one to squeeze in. I am just not a morning person. Mornings should be spent curled up in bed, not running around trying to look presentable and pack a lunch and brew coffee AND make breakfast. Like, how many things am I expected to do before I’ve ingested a proper level of caffeine?

So I’ve been buying these frozen breakfast burritos from Target. They’re great. And they’re not crazy expensive, but I decided I wanted to see if I could make my own. So I turned to Pinterest and found this frozen breakfast burrito recipe. I made a few tweaks though.bfast1

Breakfast Burrito Ingredients

  • 12 Medium Flour Tortillas
  • 1 Dozen Eggs or 20oz. Egg Whites
  • 1 Pound Turkey Sausage
  • 1 ½ Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
    (or whatever flavor floats your boat)
  • 1 Small Bell Pepper Chopped
  • 1 Small Yellow Onion Chopped
  • 1 Russet Potato Diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
    (or less if you don’t really like Cumin…)
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

 

Breakfast Burrito Instructions

  1. Dice potato. In large skillet, heat olive oil, and saute potato chunks until soft and nicely roasted on the outside. This is a great time to be chopping your veggies while the potato cooks.
  2. Add onions and bell peppers, stirring occasionally and cooking until they begin to get tender (4-5 minutes).Q7SfaKJqL-mWca_Dfr-0RInYV4M3kli7gRzYjWZKxGR3X8LgYY-W8Ou1VKoVGUXhVA=w1266-h629
  3. Mix in sausage cooking for an additional 6-7 minutes or until cooked through and no longer pink. (Because I’m lazy and picking out raw sausage overwhelms me, I used pre-cooked sausage. So for this step, I just stirred it around so everything mixed and the flavors got a chance to meld.)
  4. If using whole eggs, in a large bowl beat lightly with a fork until all yolks are broken mixing in cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and salt. (I used one carton of Southwestern style Egg Beaters and 3 real eggs because I like to get a bit of that yolk taste in there, too.)
  5. Pour eggs over sausage and veggie mixture and cook for 5-7 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.
  6. Mix in cheese and stir together until cheese is mixed well and melting.
  7. Remove from heat.
  8. Place tortillas on cutting board or clean surface and spoon  mixture on each tortilla.
  9. Roll tortilla in burrito fashion
  10. Wrap each burrito in plastic wrap then aluminum foil and place in large plastic freezer bags or airtight container.

To heat, I unwrap them totally, then wrap loosely in a paper towel, and microwave for one minute on each side on a microwave-safe plate. Let sit a minute or so and then devour! NOM NOM NOM.
