Anyone who struggles to get up early in the morning, as Erika and I are often guilty of, knows just how difficult it can be to find time for a real breakfast in the morning. For most of us who find it difficult just to look presentable in the morning, breakfast usually means a banana or a granola bar, if anything at all, or worse yet, it might mean drive-thru fast food or a day-old gas station sandwich.
Well no more! No more starving during the morning because you skipped breakfast again! No more eating your lunch at 10am because you just can’t wait any longer. And no more feeling terrible all morning because you ate another fast food breakfast!
A few months ago Erika and I started making these breakfast burritos (see recipe below) and storing them in our freezer. It is so easy to just pop these little guys in the microwave and have a hot breakfast ready in under two minutes. Better yet, they are homemade and use fresher ingredients to maintain health-conscious deliciousness!
Follow this recipe, which makes 10 burritos and takes around 1 hour to complete, and you will not be disappointed!
- ½ lb breakfast sausage (usually in bulk)
- 1 lb bacon (crumbled)
- 1 bag of frozen chopped green peppers
- ½ bag of frozen chopped onion
- Salt, pepper, and any additional seasonings to taste
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 10 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 10 burrito or medium sized flour tortillas
- Brown sausage in large skillet. (7-9 minutes)
- Add in peppers, onions, and any seasonings you want! Cook until veggies are tender.
- Stir in spinach and cook down. (2-3 minutes)
- Meanwhile, crack eggs into large bowl. Add milk to eggs and combine until well mixed and all yolks are broken and smooth within mixture.
- Pour egg mixture on top of meat and veggie mixture. Cook until eggs are scrambled. (7-8 minutes)
- Once mixture is scrambled, stir in crumbled bacon and remove from heat.
- Heat up tortillas in the microwave to make them more pliable. Place one tortilla on a sheet of aluminum foil.
- Sprinkle cheese onto the tortilla.
- Scoop a heaping spoonful of the egg/meat/veggie mixture onto the cheese.
- Fold in the edges of the tortilla. (I start with the top and bottom edges, and hold those in as I fold in the sides.)
- Wrap the tortilla in the sheet of foil and place in freezer until ready to heat and eat.
- Repeat for all tortillas, making 10 burritos.
- When heating, one burrito takes roughly 90 seconds to heat through (no need to thaw). If heating two at once, total time is 3 minutes 40 seconds.
