You can’t pick a favorite kid, but you can definitely pick a favorite meal – and ours is breakfast! My kids all have different food preferences and allergies, so it can be tough finding a meal that everyone will eat without problems. But breakfast food always seems to do the trick! Who can say no to eggs, bacon, and our favorite pancake recipe?

Mornings are easy when you can grab some of these Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burritos! Easy to make ahead and way taster than the store-bought ones.

You all know that I’m a huge advocate for meal prepping. I love to prep lots of food at the beginning of the week so the rest of the week is (a little!) less hectic. I also use my freezer like it’s going out of style. It’s always stuffed to the brim with frozen muffins, veggies, soup, and these breakfast burritos!

Lately, I’ve been making fewer trips to the grocery store and trying to cook with what I already have on hand. I even made a Pantry Staples Meal Plan to help you make amazing recipes with what you already have in your freezer and pantry. Check it out here.

But back to today’s recipe. My family loves Mexican food, so I combined our two favorite things and made Mexican-inspired breakfast burritos. This recipe is like a fiesta breakfast, and I just can’t get enough!

You can make as many as you want at once and freeze the leftovers – they make the perfect grab-and-go meals for super busy days. I also like to pack them for lunch and sometimes even enjoy them for our breakfast-for-dinner nights! With a little extra taco seasoning, of course.

    I love breakfast burritos but they’re a hassle to make until now. Wow I can make them ahead keep some in the fridge for lunch and some in the freezer for a different meal I love that idea.

    When I make my breakfast burritos I had about a teaspoon or so of sour cream in the raw eggs and then beat the eggs and sour cream together if I don’t have sour cream around water does it same thing. It seems to make the eggs alot fluffier.

    Another thing I like is I’ll cook up breakfast sausage and put it in my burritos. With the cheese and the veggies it’s a complete meal.

    My burrito was soggy when it came out of the microwave, anyway to prevent this?

      was there salsa or other wet ingredients in it?

    Can you reheat the frozen ones in the oven? If so, how? Thank you very much!

      usually at 350F for 10-15 minutes once thawed.
