This recipe goes out to all the hard-working guys and gals, who need a hearty breakfast in the morning but ain't got time for that!
I’ve been getting in a rut lately of skipping my breakfast in the morning and just grabbing a protein bar to tide me over until lunch. Usually by 10 am my stomach is rumbling louder than a helicopter and I’m fadin' fast!
So I whipped up these breakfast burritos on the weekend and popped them in the freezer! Now Austin and I have easy access to a hearty breakfast, and I won’t have to hear the sound of my stomach yelling at me for the rest of the morning!
If you’re a busy bee in the mornings too and don’t have time for breakfast but wish you did, read on! Your stomach will thank me later ; )
10 tortilla shells (burrito size)
1 package of Fairland Farms Breakfast Ground Sausage
2 cups of shredded cheese of choice
Cook your breakfast sausage in a frying pan on medium low heat until all the meat is browned and internal temp is at least 145 degrees. While your sausage is cooking, scramble your eggs in another frying pan, season to taste.
Once your breakfast sausage and eggs are finished, toss each tortilla shells in the microwave one at a time for about 15 seconds right before you create your burrito (this will help prevent your shell from ripping). Add some eggs, sausage, and cheese to each tortilla shell. Take two opposite sides of the shell and fold them in, then grab a remaining side and start to roll up your shell, creating a burrito!
With one of your frying pans you used earlier, toast your burritos on each side on medium/low heat until the sides are golden brown (I usually start with the side that has the exposed edge of the tortilla shell to make sure it stays folded up).
NOTE- I have found if I want to freeze my burritos, I skip browning them. It helps from drying them out.
To reheat, wrap in paper towel & cook in the microwave. Either use defrost setting or 60-80% power
Your burritos are breakfast ready! Now, to freeze them to eat another day, wrap each burrito in parchment paper and tape. Fill up a freezer bag with the wrapped burritos and try to get as much air out as you can.
To warm back up, pop them in the microwave for about 90-120 seconds.
