I made a big batch of breakfast burritos to freeze so I can grab an easy breakfast when I don't feel like cooking.



Ingredients:

12 whole wheat tortillas (I love the Mission Life Balance soft taco size, taste the best of whole wheat tortillas I think)
10 ounces light pork sausage
6 slices American Cheese (2 % if you want to save some cals)
12 eggs or equivalent amount of egg whites (I used 1 1/4 cup egg beaters which is equivalent to 5 eggs plus 7 whole eggs. I would have used all egg beaters but I forgot to defrost more)
2 1/2 cups of country/cream gravy
*If you don't want to use gravy, sub for salsa or hot sauce or just omit

Brown your sausage and drain if necesary. Mine was light and didn't get all greasy. Scramble your eggs up, prepare the gravy if from a mix and get everything out and get ready to go, assembly line style.

I like to put a clean cutting board down to work on.









Heat up about 4 tortillas at a time in the microwave between paper towels just enough so that they are pliable. Place on a cutting board and layer with half a slice cheese, 1/4 cup egg, 2 heaping tablespoons sausage (about .8 of an ounce), and 1/4 cup sausage gravy.



Roll the top and bottom over first and then roll the sides.







Roll the burrito in a half-sized paper towel and then put inside a plastic baggie. Make all the burritos and put into a freezer bag with the name of what it contains and the date you made them. Freeze and enjoy anytime.



To reheat, remove the plastic baggie and place the paper towel wrapped burrito on a plate. Heat for a minute in the microwave and turn over and heat for another minute. Check to make sure the middle is hot enough and enjoy.

12 breakfasts, easy peasy!

The calorie count on mine turned out to be around 300 calories, I like to eat around 400 cals for breakfast, so along with a piece of fruit this is perfect.

I'd never considered burritos for breakfast before, the things I learn online! Thank you.

Hmmm...I wonder if you could sub salsa for the gravy? As much as I love country gravy, my stomach won't let me have it anymore.  Undecided

Any ideas on how long these would last in the freezer? A couple of days...a week?

Thanks for sharing Mare! Smiley

Yep, I suggested salsa instead of gravy in the directions, I like to switch it up and only used the gravy this time because I had it. Grin

I'm sure they'd be fine for a couple months in the freezer if you've wrapped them well.

what a great idea!  I hate trying to think of something for breakfast for my son and I.  These look delish AND something my son would eat..he's a picky breakfast eater.

Thanks for the idea and tute!

You can totally do this with lunch/dinner burritos too! Cook up some ground beef or some chicken and shred it, some veggies if you want. Much healthier than most frozen burritos you could buy. Instead of putting them in individual ziplock bags you could stick them in a casserole dish and when you want an easy meal cover them with enchilada sauce and bake.

I'm not keen on the idea of eggs and country gravy (I love scrambled eggs, I love country gravy, I can't stand the idea of them together!!!) but breakfast burritos seems a good idea!

oh and mission are my favorite brand too. mmmm.

This is a great idea!! I leave for work early so already make things to freeze so I can grab them in the morning. But I always make things like muffins- definitely not as healthy or protein-ful as this is.  I'll have to try it!

lol! Definitely replace the gravy with salsa then, or just leave it out all together! It's totally customizable, and without the gravy it would definitely save some calories Wink
