Freezer Breakfast Burritos
I take breakfast seriously. It’s the first thing i think about when I wake up. On days that I work in the office I usually buy a breakfast sandwich somewhere and then eat it at my desk. But honestly, I have been getting kind of let down from the places I would normally order from so I decided to prep some weekly freezer breakfast burritos this week, and then have them all wrapped up and ready to go for Allison and I to take to work.
I’ve done this before, and it does take a bit of organization but now that it is done, I am happy and I don’t have to think about it again for the rest of the week. These are one of the most customizable meals because you can use any breakfast meat, and cheese, and any spices! I love those types of meals!
What are Freezer Breakfast Burritos made from?
They are highly customizable, but I made mine with tortillas, eggs, cheese, maple chicken breakfast sausage, potatoes, greens, and spices.
Are Burritos healthy?
Burritos are packed full of protein and carbs and since they are customizable you can put anything you want in them. You can make it really healthy or really unhealthy depending on what you choose to add. One thing is for sure, they are super filling so they will keep you feeling full until lunchtime.

Freezer Breakfast Burritos
- Parchment Papper
- Aluminum Foil
- 7 Tortillas
- 8 Eggs Scrambled
- 1 cup Cheddar Cheese Mixed into the scrambled eggs
- 1 bag Baby Spinach or other tender greens
- 1 Shallot
- 1 large Sweet Potato or Regular Potato
- 8 Breakfast Sausage Links I used a maple chicken breakfast sausage
- olive oil
- salt, garlic powder, and other spices
- Finely dice the potato and shallot and add them to a pan with a little olive oil. Add some salt, garlic powder and other spices you might like. I used some cumin because I love it! Cook until soft. Set Aside in a bowl
- While the potatoes are cooking, slice the breakfast sausage into coins and then heat in a pan. My sausage was already fully cooked so I just browned them in a little olive oil. Once they were brown, I set them aside in a bowl.
- Beat the eggs and cook on medium low heat. Don't move them too much, but as they start to set, carefully fold them in the middle of the pan. When they are almost completely set, add the cheese to the eggs and gently fold it into the eggs. Once the eggs are set, add the mixture to a bowl.
- Cook the greens with a little olive oil, salt, and garlic powder. Once wilted, add to a bowl.
- Cut 7 pieces of parchment paper and 7 pieces of aluminum foil
- Lay down a piece of parchment paper, put a tortilla on top, add your ingredients, but not too much that it will be hard to roll. Roll your burrito by folding over the sides first and then rolling the burrito up. Then hold it firm while rolling it in the parchment paper, and then finally the aluminum foil to hold it together until you eat it. I made a video and added it above for a visual.
- Repeat with the rest of the ingredients and add to a freezer bag for storage.
