Meal Prep Breakfast Burritos
You all know that I’m a huge advocate of easy meal prep recipes like these breakfast burritos. Thanks to the freezer, we can make them ahead, from start to finish, and keep them on hand for a meal that’s ready to reheat and eat.
Since they last up to 1 month in the freezer, I recommend doubling the recipe so there’s plenty on hand. Here’s how to make and freeze breakfast burritos for later:
- Prepare the burritos.
- Wrap each burrito with parchment paper.
- Transfer the wrapped burritos to a gallon-size zip bag.
- Refrigerate for 1 week and freeze for up to 1 month.
When you’re ready to eat, reheat them in the microwave until heated through and serve for breakfast or pack in a lunch box.
