Freezer Breakfast Burritos

Hi everyone! I hope you and your families had a wonderful Sunday! I will not be posting on Sundays as that day is specially reserved for my husband, my children, and my Heavenly Father. We had a wonderful day. It was open house weekend at my church so we got to meet our mayor and chief of  police. Then we had a family lunch and played outside until my husband had to leave for work. As an air traffic controller, my husband has a different schedule every week, so this was the first Sunday morning he was able to come to church with us. It was a fantastic day! Now, on to the post..

My husband loves breakfast burritos, but for 2 at a dollar apiece on 2-3 different occaisions per week, it gets a bit expensive. So I decided I'd try to make and freeze them at home. It really is incredibly easy.

Just take a roll of sausage (I use the hot variety of Tennessee Pride sausage) and push the whole tube into a large pan. Brown it and put it in a big bowl.

Next, crack a dozen eggs into a bowl and mix them. It's much easier if you do this two at a time so they get thoroughly combined. Add a splash of milk, some pepper, and a little bit of Italian seasoning (I'm talking a small pinch, not.much.).

Scramble them in the pan you browned the sausage in so they absorb the yummy flavor. Do about a quarter of the eggs at a time so you can be sure they're all completely cooked.

Mix the done eggs with the sausage.

Put about 1/4 cup of the mixture onto a medium tortilla and fold the top and bottom inwards. Then you roll it up. Repeat until all of your sausage/egg mixture is gone (or you run out of tortillas like I did my first time). As you finish, lay them on baking sheets.

After they've all been made, put them in the freezer for 30 minutes. Take them out and wrap them in foil before putting them back in the freezer.

My husband puts 2 in the fridge each night to eat in the morning before work. This is a huge money save for us. It costs about $6 to make an entire batch (about 20 burritos). That would cost about $23 to order from McDonald's and that doesn't include the gas it takes to get there and back multiple times. My husband loves them and I love saving money, so it's definitely a win-win situation!

Right now, I am praying for all the people who are being affected by Hurricane Sandy. While i'm living in California now, I still have lots of family and friends on the east coast. I truly hope everyone comes out of this okay.



  1. My hubby would love these. Thanks!

  2. I make these all the time, but I never froze them! I can't wait to try it...thanks for sharing at Mix it up Monday and making my life a little easier ;)
