Make ahead and Freeze Breakfast Burritos

I loved these, they were incredibly easy and delish...... and made morning breakfast a much simpler task.   I made some with just bacon, some with just sausage but they were best with both... for vegetarians you could delete the meat, add more onions and peppers.


1 lb breakfast sausage
6 slices bacon
2 potatoes, cubed into bite size pieces
1/2 onion, chopped
8 oz cheese (any kind you like)
12 soft taco tortillas (I used flour)
6 eggs,  extra large
1/4 c milk
salt and pepper

Fry bacon, and then chop.   Fry pototoes and onions in the bacon grease (oh yes I did say in the bacon grease!!!), salt and pepper to taste. 

Whisk  6 eggs and 1/4 c milk in a bowl until well combined.
Heat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray (or melt 1 Tbls butter) over medium heat  add egg mixture. Cook eggs over medium heat stirring occasionally until eggs are set. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

After everything is cooked, place 5-10 tortillas on a plate and  cover with a wet paper towel. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power.  Heat the tortillas in batches. 

Set up an assembly line with all the ingredients. Place the tortillas on a large baking sheet or cutting board.

 Build your burritos:
 - cheese
 - eggs
 - potatoes
 - meat

 Fold in the sides of the tortilla. Roll burrito up very tightly. Pat firmly on top of the burrito making sure the seam is on the bottom. 
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place burritos on the sheet, seam side down. Press down on the burritos again lightly making sure that the edges are tucked in. Place baking sheet in the freezer for an hour to flash freeze the burritos. Remove from freezer and wrap burritos in plastic wrap individually. Place in a ziploc bag. I ended up with 24 burritos. 
 To Heat the burritos (I wrote this on the ziplock bag with a Sharpie ( have I ever declared my love for Sharpies?)
 Remove plastic wrap. Wrap burrito in wet paper towel.  Heat for 3 minutes on 50% power. 

I served with Salsa.. Yummiliciousness in a Tortilla.. OLE!
