Freezer Meal: Breakfast Burritos

I work long shifts four days a week so that I can be home with baby PJ an extra day. It’s been working out great, but making it work does require some extra planning and adjusting. I’ve shared the menu planner that I use, and my basic technique for making and freezing casseroles. And as promised, I’ll share some of the recipes that work well for us.

For this one, you’ll need:
– 6 whole eggs
– 8-10 egg whites
– An 8 oz block of cheese
– Ham, sausage, bacon, or turkey
– Spinach or peppers
– Salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you like
– Package of flour tortillas

To make:

Brown any meat you are using and set aside. Scramble eggs, egg whites, and seasoning until soft set. Add the browned meat and any veggies and continue scrambling.

Place one of the flour tortillas on a griddle pan over the lowest possible heat. Add slices of cheese:

Then add the egg and meat mixture (or top with sliced meat):

Then you roll it up like a burrito – which I did not take a picture of because mine are always functional but ugly haha.

Once the wrapped burritos are cooled down, wrap them in a layer of saran wrap, then a layer of freezer foil.

Paul and I take them straight from the freezer (unwrapped) to the microwave for two minutes. And I vary the meat and vegetables every time I make a batch.

Enjoy, and let me know what combos you come up with!
