I typically am a sweet breakfast eater. I usually have stuff like blueberry muffins, chocolate chip baked oatmeal, granola as cold cereal, or donuts (LOL) but this weekend I tried something different (for me).
I've been reading about breakfast burritos in many of my favorite blogs. There are lots of variations to pick. Some use potatoes, some use sausage, all use eggs and sometimes cheese. One of the blogs I was reading suggested just using whatever you want in there with the eggs, including black beans and vegetables. Another "duh" moment for me. Sounded like a great idea!
I really wanted to spend the extra long weekend getting some food prepped for our lunches and breakfasts. Breakfast burritos sounded like a great option for any meal and especially good for keeping in the freezer as my own "fast food".
I was thrilled with my breakfast burritos! I don't often eat scrambled eggs, although I don't dislike them as long as they are cooked well done. But I did LOVE these breakfast burritos! Holy burrito, batman! These things are KILLER!
Breakfast burritos are a great way to use up leftovers. I made mine using very simple ingredients that I had on hand, cooked cubed potatoes, scrambled eggs, salsa & cheese. I ate one for breakfast and placed the others in a resealable bag for storing in my freezer. With four scrambled eggs and a hand full of other ingredients, I made five breakfast burritos. I HIGHLY recommend making some for your family. Definitely they would be cheaper from home than even any dollar menu. Plus you will know they are made from the best ingredients - especially made by you!
Here's how I made Homemade Breakfast Burritos AT HOME MY WAY:
Homemade Breakfast Burritos
- Flour tortillas
- Scrambled eggs (I scrambled 4 eggs with a drizzle of milk, salt & pepper in my buttered iron skillet)
- Cheese (I only used one slice of american cheese and melted it right cooking the scrambled eggs-stirring all together)
- Cooked cubed potatoes, hashbrowns, leftover cubed baked potato, etc. (I just cubed a real potato and cooked in a little oil in my skillet until done but next time will be making these using leftover baked potatoes.)
- Optional-cooked, drained breakfast sausage, ham, etc.
Warm the tortillas.
Scramble eggs however you normally do that. Melt cheese over the scrambled eggs.
To the warm tortilla, add a little eggs, cheese, salsa, potatoes, any meat if you are using. Wrap & place in a resealable bag/container and store in your freezer.
Reheat in the microwave or warm in the oven.
