Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burritos

The Breakfast Burrito Breakthrough

I’m a self-proclaimed breakfast fiend, but let’s be honest – some mornings, even I struggle to find the time (or the energy) to whip up a proper meal before rushing out the door. That’s where my newfound love for freezer-friendly breakfast burritos comes in! These portable powerhouses have been a total game-changer, providing me with a delicious and nutritious start to my day without the usual morning hassle.

Flavor and Flexibility

What I love most about these burritos is their versatility. You can customize the fillings to suit your taste buds – from spicy Italian sausage and fluffy scrambled eggs to hearty black beans and crispy home fries. The possibilities are endless! And the best part? You can batch-cook a bunch, stash them in the freezer, and have a healthy breakfast ready to go whenever the mood (or hunger) strikes.

Foolproof Freezing

Now, I know what you might be thinking – won’t freezing these burritos make them soggy and sad? Fear not, my fellow breakfast enthusiasts! With a few simple tricks, like wrapping them tightly in parchment paper or heavy-duty aluminum foil, you can keep those tortillas crisp and the fillings delightfully fresh, even after weeks in the freezer. Skinnytaste has some great tips on how to store and reheat these babies to perfection.

Now, instead of scrambling (pun intended) to put something together, I can simply grab a burrito from the freezer, pop it in the microwave or oven, and enjoy a hot, satisfying meal in just a few minutes. It’s the ultimate breakfast hack, if you ask me.

Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burrito Perfection

Ingredients:

  • 12 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1 lb cooked ham, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 large tortillas (10-12 inches)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. In a skillet, sauté the onion and bell pepper in 1 tbsp of the butter until soft, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In the same skillet, cook the diced ham in the remaining 1 tbsp of butter until lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. In the now-empty skillet, melt the remaining 1 tbsp of butter over medium heat. Pour in the whisked eggs and gently push the eggs toward the center as they set, creating soft, scrambled eggs. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. To assemble the burritos, lay out the tortillas and divide the scrambled eggs, sautéed veggies, and diced ham evenly among them. Top each with a handful of shredded cheese.
  5. Carefully roll up the burritos, tucking in the sides as you go. Wrap each burrito tightly in parchment paper or heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  6. Place the wrapped burritos in freezer-safe bags or containers, label with the contents and date, and freeze for up to 3 months.

Reheating and Enjoying

When you’re ready to indulge, there are a few options for reheating your frozen breakfast burritos:

  • Microwave: Remove the wrapping, place the burrito on a microwave-safe plate, and heat for 3-5 minutes, or until heated through.
  • Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Keep the burrito wrapped and bake for 30 minutes, or until heated through. For a crisper tortilla, remove the foil halfway through baking.
  • Stovetop: Thaw the burrito in the refrigerator overnight, then warm it in a skillet over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes per side, or until heated through and the tortilla is crispy.

No matter how you choose to reheat your freezer-friendly breakfast burritos, you’re sure to have a delicious and satisfying meal that will power you through your day. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get rolling!
