Jess from Vanderbilt Wife said that she makes breakfast burritos and freezes them for a quick breakfast.
So here's what I tried!
To make these yourself, you'll need your favorite scrambled eggs ingredients and some tortillas. I used:
1 dozen eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 lb sausage, cooked and diced
1 tomato, diced
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Scramble the eggs to your liking (pictures of scrambled eggs always do them injustice):
Prior to assembling your burritos, warm your tortillas slightly so that they are easier to shape into burritos. Then add a dollop of eggs on top of your shell:
Then fold the ends over about an inch.
And then the next side.
And the next:
A dozen scrambled eggs gave me 9 breakfast burritos.
To freeze, wrap them individually in clear wrap or aluminum foil and then put in a freezer bag. Reheat by removing wrapping, wrapping in a paper towel, and heating it in the microwave for approximately 2 minutes (depending on your microwave). This is what you'll get:
Yum! My husband enjoyed one this morning for breakfast on his way out the door.
