Freezer Breakfast Burritos from The Peaceful Mom 1pinit

Easy Freezer Cooking: I love saving  time and money by making food to put in the freezer for later. Freezer cooking makes life easier and keeps me out of the drive-thru!




These Freezer Breakfast Burritos with sausage and egg are one of our new favorites! Try them and let me know what you think.


Freezer Breakfast Burritos ingredients - The Peaceful Mom

1 pound ground pork sausage

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 small red onion

3 small or 1 large bell pepper (I used red and yellow for color)

1 dozen large eggs

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese

8 flour tortillas (soft taco size)



Freezer Breakfast Burritos - chop peppers - The Peaceful Mom

Dice the peppers and saute them in olive oil for 2 minutes until they begin to soften. Meanwhile chop the onion and add it to the peppers and cook for 1 additional minute.

Add sausage to skillet and stir to break it up into small pieces. Continue to stir and cook until sausage is no longer pink. Set aside.

In a separate pan melt butter and scramble the eggs. Add salt to taste

When eggs are almost done, add shredded cheese and stir until it is incorporated into the eggs.


Assembly Instructions


Freezer Breakfast Burritos - Assembly - The Peaceful MomPlace about 1/4 cup each of the sausage mixture and the scrambled eggs into the center of one flour tortilla.



Freezer Cooking Breakfast Burritos - Fold tortilla over filling - The Peaceful Mom

Fold the two sides of the tortilla toward the center and roll the tortilla up from the bottom.


Freezer Cooking Breakfast Burritos - Wrap in a paper towel - The Peaceful Mom

Wrap the burrito in a paper towel section.



Freezer Cooking Burritos - Place Burritos in Freezer Bag - The Peaceful Mom

Wrap the paper towel covered burrito in foil and place inside a zipper top freezer bag.

Freeze for 3-4 weeks.


To Re-Heat:

Remove foil. Place paper towel wrapped burrito in a microwave oven for 30-45 seconds. Unwrap and eat.

Note: If you are like me and you don’t love using microwaves, simply skip the paper towel and wrap the burritos in foil. The foil wrapped burritos can be placed in the oven and reheated at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or they can be placed in a toaster oven. Be sure to use an oven mitt as the foil will be very hot.
