Scramble eggs, seasoning lightly with salt and pepper. Start by adding the eggs to the center of the tortilla.

Lightly mash down with the back of a spoon to hold the rest of the ingredients. Add your proteins on top of the eggs, followed by the sautéed potatoes and veggies and top with cheese. 

Roll the burrito tightly. When rolling up your burrito, make sure not to stuff it too full or else they’ll be tricky to roll up. 

Lay on a baking sheet burrito seam side down.

Spray the top of each burrito with cooking spray. 

Bake in a 350 degree f oven for a cooking time of 15-20 minutes until tortillas are crispy around the edges. Allow to cool slightly before serving or freezing for later use.

How to Freeze Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos

To freeze, wrap each individual burrito in plastic wrap tightly to ward off freezer burn. Place wrapped burritos in a freezer safe ziploc bag. Label and date each one before placing in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

What to Serve with Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast burritos can be served with a variety of accompaniments. ​​Some of our favorites include hot sauce, salsa, sour cream, guacamole, applesauce, Hash Browns, fruit salad or yogurt.

How do you reheat frozen breakfast burritos?

When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and either cook in the microwave for 2-3 minutes until heated through or place on a baking sheet in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until warmed throughout. 

For best results, when warming up from frozen, let the burritos defrost in the fridge the night before. But if you forget, remove from plastic wrap, wrap a damp paper towel around the frozen burrito, and microwave for 1 min. This will steam the burrito as it heats up and the tortilla won’t be hard.
Burritos will be good for up to 3 weeks in the freezer.
