Easy breakfast burritos
You can make your breakfast burritos and eat them right away, however I love this recipe because it’s easy to make and easy to freeze for later. Once you make your breakfast burritos, freeze them and they’ll be ready when you want to reheat them.
- If the burritos are frozen, I pop them in the microwave, still wrapped in plastic wrap, and cook for 1-1.5 minutes. Let it cool for a minute to avoid any kind of steam burns.
- If the burritos have just been in the fridge, I would heat them up in the microwave, also covered, for about 45 seconds.
- The center should be thoroughly heated.
Note: Some people have asked about using something other than plastic. I keep the plastic on to the moisture stays inside the burrito and the tortilla stays soft. You could heat up the burritos in some kind of a container with a lid for the same result. A small casserole dish with a lid in the microwave OR aluminum foil in the oven should do the trick. I’m not a fan of freezing aluminum foil, but if you like it better than plastic wrap, it should work fine!
I like to store the burritos in a plastic tub. I make up a batch on the weekend and I put them in the freezer so they are easy to find for the kids the rest of the week. You can do the same thing with your regular burritos for lunches and cook ahead dinners too!
Recommended Supplies for Breakfast Burritos Made Easy
I use basic supplies I already have. I cook everything up in a large skillet, wrap up all the burritos and then place them in a casserole dish when I want to take them to the game or whatever activity. Here are some suggestions you can pick up if you don’t have all the supplies already. The carrying case is on my own wish list… right now I’m just walking around with a casserole dish wrapped in a towel, ha!
