    Frozen Breakfast Burritos


    Servings: 7

    8 strips bacon

    6 baby red potatoes, quartered

    16 ounces sausage

    1 red pepper, chopped

    1 yellow onion, chopped

    Salt, to taste

    Pepper, to taste

    10 eggs, beaten

    2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

    ½ cup scallions, sliced

    Flour tortillas


    1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon (in batches if necessary) until crispy. Remove the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and leave to cool.

    2. In the same skillet, using leftover bacon grease (drain some if necessary), add the potatoes and season with salt and pepper.

    3. Once lightly browned, add in peppers and onion. Cook until potatoes have browned and the peppers and onions have softened. Remove from pan and place in bowl to cool.

    4. In the same saucepan, cook sausage until browned and cooked through. Remove to a paper towel-lined bowl. Finally, reduce heat to medium-low and pour beaten eggs into the skillet. Fold and stir eggs occasionally until cooked but still soft and moist. Remove from pan.

    5. Gather cooked ingredients, having let them all cool slightly. Gather flour tortillas, shredded cheese, and sliced green onions (optional), and set them out on your table or workspace.

    6. To assemble the burritos, lay out a tortilla and start with a base of eggs, followed by desired toppings, and finish with cheese.

    7. To wrap the burrito, fold in both sides, then fold the bottom up and over all the ingredients. Roll up tightly. (If you find the tortillas are tearing, heat them up a few at a time for 20 seconds in the microwave before assembling).

    8. Wrap up in parchment paper and repeat with remaining tortillas and ingredients, customizing the burritos to your liking. Place the parchment-wrapped burritos in a 1-gallon freezer bag and place in the freezer to store for up to one month.

    To reheat:

    1. Remove the frozen burrito from the freezer. Unwrap from parchment paper and wrap the frozen burrito up in a damp paper towel.

    2. Place on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and rest for one minute before unwrapping.

    4. Remove the paper towel, serve with hot sauce, salsa, or sour cream! Enjoy!
