What is it about frozen breakfast foods that make them so delicious? Okay, really, most of them are not all that good. They're just convenient. Have you ever looked at a package of frozen waffles or sausage biscuits? I'm very guilty of serving these up to my family, but then I had the idea of making breakfast ahead of time in individual portions, freezing them, and having them readily available when someone was hungry! Why didn't I think of this before?
My first freezer breakfast meal was individual breakfast burritos. I buy raw tortillas that you cook because they have very few ingredients and taste the best, in my opinion. I cooked them up really quickly, while I made my egg and sausage mixture. Then, roll them up in Glad® Press'n Seal and make sure they are extra protected in the freezer with Glad® FreezerWareTM. This ensures that they will be protected from freezer burn for a long time. Sorry I can't tell you how long they will last, but I'm pretty sure they will be eaten before they go bad, especially if they're protected in Glad. When someone wants a burrito, simply unwrap, wrap in a paper towel, warm for a minute or two in the microwave, and it's breakfast time!
Freezer Breakfast Burritos
Ingredients: (you really can add in anything that you want in these!)
- 8 burrito sized tortillas
- 8-10 eggs
- 3/4 cup cooked sausage
- shredded cheese
- Cook eggs and sausage until done.
- Lay out tortillas and scoop egg and sausage mixture on top. Don't overfill!
- Sprinkle with cheese, if desired.
- Fold up two opposite sides, and then roll one side until your burrito is snug and secure.
- Wrap each burrito in Glad® Press'n Seal.
- Place wrapped burritos in Glad® FreezerWareTM, snap lid on, and store in freezer.
Directions for re-warming burritos:
- Take a burrito out of the freezer.
- Loosely wrap in a paper towel.
- Microwave for 1-2 minutes (you will probably have to experiment with this due to microwaves being so different.)
- Let cool, top with your favorite salsa, and enjoy!
