Freezer Breakfast Burritos

It’s always a good thing when you can stock your freezer.  Maybe you’re expecting a baby or having a surgery and want to stock up before the big day, or just want to give some freezer-friendly food as a thoughtful gift.  Or maybe you’re going on vacation or you’re a student and need some quick-fix breakfasts that will keep up your energy levels for a while.  Whatever the reasoning, this is definitely something you’ll want to make!  People always think of freezer meals as something for dinner, but what about breakfast?  It IS the most important meal of the day, you know!

This was a little involved to make, but it will be sooo nice when all you have to do is pop it in the microwave for a quick and delicious breakfast on the go!  Be creative, also.  The sky is the limit – you can add anything you want!

Freezer Breakfast Burritos
Inspired by:  Joelen’s Culinary Adventures
Yields 10 breakfast burritos


1 lb. bulk pork sausage (I used Jimmy Dean maple flavor)
5 eggs
seasonings for eggs (I like thyme, cajun seasoning and onion and garlic powders)
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
flour tortillas (I used the medium/fajita size)
shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Season and scramble eggs as you normally like to – I mix in a few shots of milk and make them fluffier; set aside.  Brown sausage and make sure it’s crumbled in small bits.  Add the onion, garlic and bell pepper and cook until softened.    Microwave the tortillas a few seconds each to make sure they’re pliable.  Put a couple of spoons of eggs, sausage mixture and a sprinkling of cheese on each tortilla and roll up like a burrito.  Wrap in foil and place in a ziploc bag in the freezer. 

To heat, pop into the oven or unwrap and microwave until warm.
