Easy Breakfast Burritos - Perfect freezer meal or camping recipe!

If you ever come visit the One Sweet Appetite family you will most likely see a shelf full of these in our freezer.

There is not anything better than having a warm breakfast ready in just minutes on busy mornings.

I have been guilty of hitting the snooze button one or two (or ten) times. It is comforting to know I can fill my little guys belly with something besides cereal before he heads off to school.

We try to mix things up and experiment with different flavor combinations (my picky eater prefers only eggs, bacon, and cheese) which means there are always multiple options to pick from when you are starving and in need of a belly filler but this version is by far our favorite. Packed with eggs, sausage, peppers, cheese, and hash browns you are sure to be satisfied!

How to freeze breakfast burritos:

  1. Follow the recipe all the way through folding your filled burritos.
  2. Place closely on a parchment lined baking tray.
  3. Flash freeze for 20 minutes.
  4. Individually wrap each one in plastic wrap and place in a labeled zip top bag.
  5. When you are ready to eat simply unwrap and discard the plastic wrap, wrap in a moistened paper towel, and heat in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes.

Let’s talk about taking these things CAMPING. Whenever we get together with big groups I always opt to take breakfast. You make these in advance so you have ZERO prep work when you get there and ZERO clean up. They are wrapped in foil so all you need to do is toss them on warm coals, a grill, or in the oven to heat through.

You are a rock star for giving everyone a delicious meal. Bonus? Everyone will be extremely jealous of how little work your meal was compared to theirs!

Notes

* We like sharp cheddar or pepper jack but you can use any type of cheese you prefer. * We've used every type of frozen potato and love them all. Just choose your favorite and make sure it's cooked fully before you add them to the burrito *Freeze the burritos before taking camping. It keeps them cool until you are ready to use. TO FREEZE: Place foil or parchment on a large baking sheet. Build all of your burritos and fold tightly aligning as close as possible without having them touch on your prepared pan. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes. Remove and wrap each burrito individually in plastic wrap. Store in a large Ziploc. When ready to eat remove from the plastic, wrap in a damp paper towel, and microwave 2 minutes. FOR CAMPING: Follow the freezer instructions substituting foil for plastic wrap. When ready to eat place the foil wrapped burritos on hot coals until heated through.

We have a huge camping group (45 people, some of which are teenage boys). I plan to make a ton of these. We will have electrical outlets so I hope to heat them in large roasters. Has anyone done that? Any guesses on roasting times if I have the roasters full of burritos? Thanks!
