Make Easy Breakfast Burritos

I love to make breakfast recipes and they are my favorite foods to eat, however, mornings are not my favorite. So, short of having breakfast for dinner all the time…  creating yummy food for breakfast ahead of time works really well in our house. I like to make up a big batch of these breakfast burritos, freezing them and then we can reheat them and enjoy any time we want. Making all these burritos ahead of time also helps out with those mornings that we just don’t have time to cook a proper meal. I’d rather have homemade food than pre-packaged store bought items when we can make it happen.

Classic Eggs and Sausage Breakfast burritos

Ingredients to make breakfast burritos

  • 5-6 Eggs
  • 1 package Sausage
  • 3 medium Potatoes
  • 1 cup Cheese – this is an estimate, use more or less how you’d like
  • Tortillas – I use the standard/medium sized tortillas

How to make breakfast burritos

  1. Cook potatoes. Poke potatoes with a fork, cook in microwave on high for 4 minutes or so, cook until slightly soft. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the sausage, drain and set aside for later.
  3. Scramble eggs. Add sausage back into the pan. Cut potatoes into cubes and add to skillet mixture. Add any additional seasoning.
  4. Add a few spoonfuls of egg and sausage mixture to a tortilla. Top with shredded cheese. Fold. Wrap with plastic wrap and store.

  1. Hi! I’m assuming bacon will work just the same as sausage? Can’t wait for this. I make homemade salsa and love breakfast burritos with salsa.

    • I think bacon would be amazing! Did you try it out? For bacon, I would cook up the bacon by itself first, and then add the other ingredients to it so that the mixture soaks up that yummy bacon flavor but you get crispy bites of bacon too.

    • I can usually get about 6 burritos made with this, but just add more eggs and sausage for more burritos. (Or use smaller tortillas) Enjoy!

  2. Y’all I just made this yesterday for my husband because he’s always buying gas station food for breakfast ? and MY GOD! ? y’all I did everything the same but added diced onions, diced green pepper, diced red pepper and a can of rotel with the green chiles in it and I got 16 burritos! Monay! ? I snagged some this morning to try and… They are to die for. ? try em! It’s worth the extra effort.

  3. 2keep warm for an outing: Heat up your empty cooler with heating pads or heated dry towels. Fill up cooler with space for your burritos.. … container or stored in a plastic bag.. they will stay safely warm up to 4 hours.

  4. Would parchment paper be a happy medium between the plastic and foil? I’m nervous with the kids microwaving plastic wrap. Does it not melt?
    And thank you for the delish dish idea!!!

    • Hi Chanda, Parchment paper might work, but it’s more difficult to hold in place for a burrito. (Unless you have a trick you’d like to share!). I use the Press And Seal plastic wrap. It doesn’t melt at all, just be careful or steam while unwrapping. Let me know how that works.

  5. Hi great idea can you eat these cold like if taken in a lunch cooler then eaten. I don’t mind cold stuff I wrap everything for lunches

    • Great idea! I don’t mind cold food either… especially if it’s got some great flavor. You could add all your favorite spices to make them extra delicious.
