Making Breakfast Burritos to Freeze

I wasn't so sure if these would freeze very well but I am happy to report that they did. I've never tried to freeze eggs before so I wasn't sure if I needed to use something like Egg Beaters in place of real eggs or not.

By the way I'm not a big egg fan but I love this recipe & I've actually posted the Breakfast Burrito recipe on here before so it's really nothing new~ it's just the newly learned fact that they can be made ahead of time, placed in the freezer and then easily microwaved for a quick & easy breakfast.

You can find my Breakfast Burrito recipe ** HERE.**

What I like to do is to make a double batch one evening for  a supper and then use the leftovers to make my freezer burritos. (Just remember to by an extra bag of flour tortillas if you're going to do this! *one for supper and one for freezer*)
Take the leftovers and place a nice big spoonful in the top center of your burrito. Don't forget to top it with lots of cheddar cheese. 

Fold up burrito style ~ fold sides in and then roll.

Wrap each burrito in a piece of aluminum foil. Once you get them all wrapped then place 4-6 of them in a labeled gallon size freezer bag and freeze.
Now when you need a quick bite for breakfast grab one out.
Remove from the foil and place on a microwave safe plate.
Heat in microwave for 3 minutes 30 seconds. (Times will vary depending on the size of your microwave.)

What a great idea! I've been pre-making breakfast sandwiches for my hubby to eat before he leaves for work, but I'm sure he would enjoy a little change in scenery!
