Freezer Breakfast Burritos

You'll need:

Soft tortillas
Bacon or sausage (or both)
salsa (optional)
cheese (optional)

This is a very short and sweet version that can be modified any which way you like! This is how we did it.

Cook 3 pieces of bacon or 2 pieces of sausage per burrito you intend to make.  I like to cook this individually so I can use the grease from the meat to cook the eggs in.  Hey, I never said this was a healthy recipe.   Set the meat aside on a paper towel lined plate to drain a bit.

Scramble 2 eggs per burrito.  I usually put 4 eggs in the pan at a time, which is enough to make two burritos.  I often crumble the bacon or sausage into the eggs as they cook, then add the cheese on top so it can melt in to the "filling"

After the eggs are done, use your spatula to divide up the filling in the pan so you know how much to put in each burrito.  Trust me on this, otherwise one will be over full and one will be pitiful.

Spread the eggs inside of the tortilla.  Now is the time to add your salsa and more cheese if you want.

Roll your burritos and wrap them in plastic wrap.

Place them in freezer bags, squeeze out as much air as you can and toss them in the freezer.  You may want to write on the bag what kind they are (sausage or bacon) so you don't get set for one kind and realize you grabbed the other in the morning.

Voila, individually wrapped breakfast burritos! You can take one out and microwave it for 2 minutes. Tim likes to put a little hot sauce on them in the mornings.

Really- you can do so much with these and they freeze and thaw really well. You could easily do ham, add some peppers- just have fun with them.
