These Freezer Breakfast Burritos make mornings a breeze! Filled with cheese, sausage, potatoes and eggs, it’s a delicious, hearty, portable breakfast on the go!
- 20 ounce package of diced potatoes, fresh or frozen (see note)
- 1 pound pork sausage (can also swap out Italian sausage removed from casings)
- 8 ounce block of cheddar cheese, shredded
- 10 eggs, beaten with salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Kosher salt and fresh black pepper to taste
- 6 large, burrito-size flour tortillas
- Cook the potatoes in a large skillet according to the package directions. If the potatoes are unseasoned, season them with salt and pepper to taste. Once brown and crispy, transfer to a bowl and set aside.
- Add the sausage to the same skillet and cook while breaking up into crumbles, until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
- Add the tablespoon of butter to the same skillet (or use non-stick cooking spray if needed) and scramble the eggs to your liking, without leaving them too runny as the liquid will make the burritos soggy. Transfer the eggs to a bowl, then remove the skillet from the heat.
- Place the tortillas on a board or work surface. Add a portion of the eggs, potatoes and sausage to each tortilla, and then top with the shredded cheese. Fold the tortillas up burrito style, ending with the seam down.
- Wipe out the skillet and then heat over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray or add a little oil to the pan. Once hot, add a few of the burritos to the skillet, seam side down and let the burritos crisp until brown on each side, about 1 minute on each side. Repeat with the remaining burritos.
- If you aren’t freezing these burritos, they will last in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
To Freeze And Reheat The Burritos:
- Let the burritos cool completely, then wrap in plastic wrap and store in a resealable freezer bag. Slicing the burritos in half before freezing helps to reheat the burritos faster. When ready to reheat, remove a burrito from the plastic wrap and wrap in a paper towel.
- Place the burrito on a microwave-safe plate and cook on the defrost setting for 2 minutes. Now cook the burrito on full power for 45 seconds to 1 minute, depending on the size of your burrito. Just give it a few more seconds if the filling isn’t warmed through.
You can grab either fresh or frozen diced potatoes; the fresh version is usually found in the butcher department. Cook according to the package directions. This is also a great way to use up leftover baked potatoes!
