Make Ahead Freezer Breakfast Burritos

Though we are avid protein shake breakfast drinkers, I like to have breakfast burritos on hand for when we are rushing out the door.  I came up with an easy system to making a bunch of burritos ahead of time and freeze so that we always have them on hand when needed.

I most often use them when I get up with my husband in the morning as he gets ready for work.  Since this is at the crazy hour of 5:00am (sometimes 4:51 for heavens sake) there are some mornings that I do not have the energy to make him a shake.  Instead I pop one of these in the microwave straight out of the freezer and then tuck myself back in bed.  Sure he can pour himself a bowl of cereal, but it is important to me to encourage him to start off his morning with a filling meal.  Hence the make ahead freezer breakfast burritos.

I make the burritos assembly line style.  I first cook the hash browns and put them on the tortillas.  I then cook the eggs and top with cheese and meat.  Sometimes this is leftover deli turkey or something like bacon bits.  I usually just use whatever I have on hand at the moment.

Once the burritos are filled I wrap them in plastic wrap.

They then go into a large ziploc bag and into the freezer.  Pretty simple.  Takes maybe 20 minutes and I am set.

To eat, they go into the microwave, still wrapped in plastic wrap, for two minutes.  As easy as that. 

If you have a more adventurous palette, filling these with veggies and other seasonings would make for an even heartier or healthier option.  Since these are mostly for my husband, I go with simple.  I finally got him to drink shakes every morning so a tasty breakfast burrito on tired mornings are the least I could do!
