I made another great “make ahead” recipe today. This time with breakfast in mind! I am not a morning person what-so-ever, waking up and getting dressed in hard enough. Lots of days I don’t have a lot of time to make anything for breakfast or feel like eating, but if I have some yummy things ready to go, I know I’ll have a good start to the day!
Who doesn’t love breakfast!? It’s my most favourite meal. Here’s how you can make your own breakfast burritos to freeze and have on-hand for a quick breakfast!
What you will need:
12 large eggs
1/3 cup of milk
1 package of breakfast sausage
1 green pepper
1 yellow onion
1 can of black beans
1-2 cups shredded cheese (depending on how much you like, I used the pre-shredded kind)
10-12 large tortillas (Whatever kind you like, I used the flour and corn blend this time)
Salt & pepper
First you’ll want to take all the breakfast sausage out of the casings and cook while breaking up into pieces. Set aside, let drain and cool.
Finely chop onion and green pepper. Break 12 eggs into a bowl and whisk together with milk. Start sauteing onions and green pepper with a small amount of butter or olive oil, then add eggs and scramble cook until just done, adding a sprinkle of talian seasoning and S&P to taste. Set aside and let cool.
When everything is cool and ready to assemble, put a few tortillas on a plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for about 10-20 seconds until warm, they’ll be easier to work with and less likely to break this way.
Start by putting some eggs in the middle.
Then add a bit of the sausage, black beans and cheese. I folded the burritos like this: How to fold a burrito.
Lay the burritos seam side down on a tray and put in freezer for about 30-60 mins. Only they’ve froze you can wrap them each in plastic wrap and put in a ziploc bag to store in the freezer.
When you want to eat one simply take out of the package and microwave for 30-90 seconds depending on your microwave. You can even take it out of the freezer and leave in the fridge overnight and cook in the morning.
