Variation Ideas

  • Salsa (we used Taco Sauce)
  • Onions
  • Green Bell Peppers 
  • Frozen Hash Browns
  • Mushrooms
  • Potatoes
  • Spinach
  • Squash
  • Zucchini
  • Tater Tots

We have used leftover ground beef and ground turkey and even shredded chicken or pork to make the breakfast burritos. There really is no wrong way to prepare these easy freezer friendly breakfast burritos.

Step by Step Instructions:

  • Step 1 – Cook the Sausage – Brown the breakfast sausage in a large skillet over medium heat and just put it aside.
  • Step 2 – Make the Eggs – Next, scramble the eggs. Season with salt and pepper while you are preparing the eggs. Set aside in a bowl.
  • Step 3 – Prepare the vegetables – If you are adding in peppers and onions. You can add them to the scrambled eggs mixture. Cook until the vegetables until soft.

Step 4 – Make your assembly line and layer your ingredients on each tortilla. Fold the tortillas around the egg mixture and veggies.

Breakfast Burritos prepared and placed on a baking sheet

Step 5 – Once you have all the burritos completed, place the burritos on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for at least 1 hour and then move them to a freezer bag to store.

Expert Tips:

  • Use Fresh Tortillas – When I pick out the tortillas at the store, I try and get the ones that are soft. Then I use those to make these breakfast burritos. It makes it so much easier to roll when the tortillas are soft.
  • Microwave Tortilla – If you have tortilla that are not soft, or at room temperature you can heat them in the microwave. Place the tortilla between two damp paper towels for about 20 seconds. This should help to be able to roll the tortilla without it cracking.
  • Don’t Overstuff– When preparing the burritos, make sure to not overstuff the burritos. This makes it easy to ensure the burritos closes and no cracking of the tortilla.
  • Tortilla Size – We use the soft taco size tortilla when we make breakfast burritos. But if you prefer larger size, you can use the burrito size tortillas.

What to Serve with Breakfast Burritos?

Breakfast Burritos are really a complete meal all rolled up in a flour tortilla. But I do like to have a few sides to go with it. Here are some of my favorite sides:

  • Make a Fruit tray – I love serving a fruit tray to balance out the meal. Strawberries, blueberries and grapes are usually my family favorites.
  • Guacamole and Salsa – Make some homemade salsa and guacamole for dipping the breakfast burrito in. Sour cream is also a great side for dipping.
  • Hash browns on the side – You can add hash browns to the burrito or serve them as a side.

What Other Meat Goes Good in Breakfast Burritos?

We love using sausage for our breakfast burritos. It fries well when we are preparing the burritos. But you can also use these other options:

  • Cooked Ham
  • Cooked Bacon
  • Use Black Beans
  • Chicken
  • Ground Beef or Ground Turkey

How long can a Breakfast Burrito stay in the Freezer?

When we make breakfast burritos they are the perfect breakfast idea to freeze. We usually make enough for 2 weeks. But the burrito will stay good for about 3 months in the freezer.

When you place the burritos in the freezer, it is a good idea to label the freezer bag. This makes sure what is in the freezer bag and you eat the ones that need to be eaten.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How to Store Leftovers:

If you have leftovers for these breakfast burritos, you can easily store in the fridge for up to 5 days. This is a great recipe to meal prep with for the week. Wrap in plastic wrap to easily reheat.

How to Reheat:

Simply take the frozen burrito out of the freezer. Wrap the burrito in a damp paper towel. Then reheat freezer burritos in the microwave for about 2 minutes on a microwave-safe plate.
It is that simple. If you want, you could place them in the fridge the night before, but it isn’t necessary

How to Prevent Breakfast Burritos from Getting Soggy:

When reheating breakfast burritos be careful to not overheat. When eggs are reheated to long it can release moisture making the burritos soggy. Also make sure to add salsa when you are serving the burritos and high content veggies. These items can also release moisture leaving your burritos soggy.

  1. Carrie Barnard says:

    The breakfast burritos stick together in the freezer bag and you won’t be able to heat them up individually.

  2. Carrie Barnard says:

    If you click jump to recipe and then click on the print button no ads will print with the recipe.

  3. Lois Barrett says:

    5 stars
    I love your recipes but I hate the fact that all the ads print when I print out the recipe. It takes more paper and ink.

  4. Isabella says:

    What happens if I skip the step of freezing on the baking sheet for an hour?

  5. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, that would work great.

  6. Rick says:

    Would it be ok to mix all the ingredients together rather than layering?

  7. Elizabeth says:

    5 stars
    This recipe was super easy and it tastes great! So helpful for making breakfast that I can take to work with me.

  8. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, or just make more burritos to freeze.

  9. Kaye says:

    I have left over sausage and egg mixture. Can I freeze this and make more latter? Thanks

  10. Carrie says:

    The paper towel is to save time when reheating the breakfast burritos as it keeps the tortillas soft when reheating them. I do not dampen the paper towels for this recipe and find that it still works great for keeping the tortillas soft.

  11. Ella says:

    What is the purpose of the paper towel…? Do you dampen it before freezing or after…?

  12. Carrie says:

    I wrap it in a damp paper towel when reheating them to prevent the tortillas from becoming hard. I hope that helps!

  13. Brittany says:

    My tortilla became really hard after I heated it up. Any hints on making this not happen? Thanks!

  14. Teresa Lango says:

    Adding ingredients to my grocery list. Also going to add the onion/pepper mix you find in the frozen veggie area of store. I’m not a fan of potatoes in mine, but suggest if you do to look for the Hashbrowns O’brien (has the pepper/onions already in them).

  15. Brandy says:

    These look delicious. Will have to add shredded cheddar cheese.

  16. Sheila says:

    I luv the griddle what kind and did you get it off amazon? Thanks, luv your videos

  17. Carrie says:

    Mary – I like to use the shredded hashbrowns

  18. mary says:

    which kind of hashbrown is the best to use for this recipes

  19. Carrie says:

    Angie – I cook all the ingredients prior to adding them to these breakfast burritos so I would cook the hashbrowns prior to adding as well. Thank you and I hope your family loves them as much as mine does 🙂

  20. Angie Adams says:

    when adding hashbrowns, do you cook them first or lay them frozen on burritos and they cook when reheating the burrito up? Please clarify, the rest of ingredients is precooked already, was wondering about hashbrowns if added?
