Freezer Breakfast Burritos

So here’s my other freezer breakfast, breakfast burritos. I kept them really simple with egg, sausage, and cheese. I was able to get a package of tortillas for 69 cents. It said there was 10 in a package, but when I opened mine, I lucked out, there were 1!. I was able to get my dozen eggs for 99 cent, a bag of shredded cheddar cheese for $1.50, and then I purchase 1 pound of Jimmy Dean sausage for $3.

I must say I am a Jimmy Dean fan. For me, it’s worth the extra money to get Jimmy Dean (You can get big rolls of Jimmy Dean at Sam’s and Costco for a great price too). I have purchased other ground sausage before and nothing compares to the quality of Jimmy Dean. It was their reduced fat version that I used in these. So because I went for the pricier sausage I was able to make these for 54 cents each.

The other thing about the burritos is you can add so many other ingredients like green pepper, hash browns, onion, green chilies, salsa, garlic, tomatoes, or green onion. You can also use different meats. I didn’t mix salsa into the eggs because not everyone like the burrito that way. Those you like salsa can just dip their burrito in it instead.

  • Freezer Burritos… When you take them out, do you have problems with the tortilla being soggy? After thawing them, how long to you keep them in the refrigerator?

    Looking for make ahead meals. This sounds simple enough.

  • Found these on pinterest. Just finished making them for quick breakfasts. I omitted the cheese as I cannot have dairy and added canned green chilis.

  • I made these today and they were tasty fresh. I'm sure they will be delish out of the freezer too.

  • Thank you so much for this recipe. It is so yummy and fast to make to keep on hand. I love that you can personalize this to your tastes. Thank you!!!!!

  • great idea for my son who is always in a hurry in the morning…he can eat in the car!

  • Made a bunch, I mixed in square hashbrowns so it made more burritos I think.. I also added tomato and green pepper. I think I made 23 of them all together :-).

  • I need to make a bunch of these for fast breakfasts! Thanks for the tip.

  • Thank you….mine may never make it to the freezer as you have given me our dinner tonight :-)!

  • Seriously, I love you right now! After yesterday's post and today's I am so happy! These are my husband's 2 favorite breakfast items and he either doesn't have enough time to make breakfast in the morning or he's worried he'll wake up our baby, so he hasn't been eating. He will be so surprised when I have these made and he has his favorite breakfast without cooking (besides popping them in the microwave). Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  • I'm gonna have to do this one and yesterdays. They look so yummy and easy…..and cheap. Oh and I love when you open something and get more than you expected. Opened up a box of taco shells once expecting 12 and got 17.

  • I buy Jimmy Dean sausage at my local Costco–a 3 lb. roll for $5.99. It's not the reduced fat kind, but I think the price is worth it!

  • This is a great idea to have a quick breakfast ready in a minute. Can I ask what size tortillas you used? do you fold the bottom up then roll like a burrito? I want to make these 🙂

  • Great minds think alike~ Thanks for the post!

  • Yummy gonna have to do this one :-).
