Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burritos

I love having items like these in the freezer, within arms reach for busy mornings or when mom just doesn't feel up to cooking so early. The family doesn't mind, in fact these are one of their favorites. Simply reheat in the microwave, toaster oven or your regular sized oven and breakfast is served. Simple, I like that!

Since we had a change of plans in our dinner a few nights ago and I already had this bacon thawed out. It made sense to make up a big batch of these. I don't always use bacon either, a lot of times if will be a mild breakfast sausage or even some diced ham. I love adding bell peppers to mine but I know the hubby and some of the girls don't like them cooked. You can use whatever veggies you prefer, maybe some mushrooms.

Then you'll want to top with cheese and roll them up. Wrap each one individually in foil to prevent freezer burn. Stack them all neatly in a large Ziploc bag, label with contents and date. And voila, you've got yourself some breakfast burritos ready to be enjoyed at a moments notice.

Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burritos

scrambled eggs with or w/out desired veggies cooked in {peppers, onions, mushrooms work well}
choice of meat- crumbled bacon, diced ham or sausage
grated cheddar cheese
flour tortilla shells
freezer bags

Lay tortillas out onto a clean counter top. Spread a small amount of scrambled eggs down middle of tortilla. Top with meat and cheese. Roll up burrito style. Wrap each one individually in foil. Place gently into a large freezer bag. Label with contents, date bag and then store in the freezer until ready to use.

When ready to use; you may remove and store in fridge to thaw overnight if desired. Otherwise simply reheat burritos while frozen, in the microwave it should take about 2 minutes. If you heat in the oven, about 5-6 minutes.
