I've posted about breakfast burritos for the freezer before, but if you know anything about me... you know I can't just leave things alone! But. I'm glad I redid these! They are SO good! My husband is loving having big, filling berritos each morning for breakfast! And I love knowing that he isn't eating sugared cereal to start off his day!
These are really pretty simple! I just started with our favorite burrito components....
21 eggs+a splash of milk +s&p + 1 cup spinach
18 slices of bacon fully cooked and cooled
about 8 cups of hashbrowns
burrito sized flour tortillas
First I started by prepping all the ingredients;
scrambling the eggs and spinach (the spinach is totally optional, but you cant taste it, and it just adds a litte more nutrition)
cooking the bacon (I did it in the oven)
frying the hashbrowms in a little butter
and shredding the cheese (I used a food prosessor)
Then, after everything had cooled, I set up my assembly line (pictured above) and started rolling!
In each burrito I used about 1/2 cup eggs, 1/4 cup hashbrowns, 2 TBS bacon and a sprinlke of cheese.
After all the burritos were rolled, I wrapped them tightly in plastic wrap, and put them in gallon freezer bags.
I ended up with almost 20 burritos, which will last us probobly over a month.
To reheat, unwrap, and microwave for about 2-3 minutes.
they are wonderful to have on hand, and I think we figured they cost around .80 cents per burrito, but they are HUGE compared to mcdonalds $1 burritos! And, I know exactly what is in them, so to me, they are totally worth the time!
