Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos

Makes 6-8 burritos

1 dozen eggs
1/2 c. milk
1 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 lb. breakfast meat of your choice, cooked & chopped
1 package tortillas

Break eggs into a large bowl. Add milk and whisk until scrambled In a large skillet, cook over medium-high heat, mixing in meat towards the end of cooking. For each burrito, place a tortilla on a paper towel then add a scoop of scrambled eggs and top with a handful of cheese. Wrap each burrito in the paper towel and then in a piece of foil. When finished with all burritos, put them in a zip-top bag and place in the freezer.

When ready to eat, remove burrito from foil and place on a microwave-safe plate still wrapped in paper towel. Microwave on high 2 to 2 1/2 minutes (depending on the wattage of your microwave), turning over once. Serve with salsa or taco sauce, if desired.

Tips: It is great to have a healthy, filling breakfast ready to go in your freezer. My husband has used these several times when he had to leave the house early. The number of burritos you make will also depend on the size of tortilla you choose to use. Watch for eggs to go on sale ($1.00/dozen is a great price) then buy an extra carton for making these burritos. I also shared this recipe at We Are THAT Family's Works-For-Me Wednesday.

Great idea to make ahead and freeze them!

THANK YOU for the full tutorial. I've seen posts that say make them and freeze them before, but nobody has talked about how to get them ready to eat! The paper towel idea is great.
