Breakfast Burrito Bonanza – A Freezer Meal Idea

Breakfast Burritos are the perfect meal to make ahead and freeze saving time during busy mornings!

Breakfast Burrito Bonanza {  A Freezer Meal Idea } | Mom On Timeout.com - Save time in the mornings with make-ahead freezer meal breakfast burritos! #breakfast #freezermeal #recipe

A couple of weeks ago it occurred to me that instead of focusing so much on freezer meals for dinner, I should do some breakfast freezer meals too.  We are so busy in the mornings that having a go-to meal in the freezer for breakfast would take a lot of the stress out of my day.  The first thing I thought of was breakfast burritos.  My husband LOVES breakfast burritos and so do my boys.  They are easy for the boys to hold and eat and my husband is a burrito fanatic.  Here is what I did…

  6. Hi! Wow, those look really good! My mom used to freeze breakfast burritos. She’d wrap them up and tape them inside some freezer paper so my dad could grab them and heat them up quickly before work.

  12. Fabulous idea! My husband loves breakfast burritos, but the potatoes take so long that I never make them in the mornings. I will definitely be making these!

    Oh, I’m your newest follower, too. :)

  23. Sherree Chmitlin says:

    A new follower. Came over from Bacon Time. Love the idea of the Breakfast Burrito’s. This will be one that I will for sure try. Thanks so much for the recipe.

  24. MomOnTimeout says:

    I’m so glad you like the idea – my husband just informed me a few days ago that I need to do another batch of these because we’re out :) Thank you for following and leaving such a nice comment.

    Trish

  25. Great idea! Someone brought breakfast burritos to a pitch-in brunch and they were so good–that would be an interesting thing to try with the freezer method. You could keep some on hand and then just grab the pan and finish it up before heading out the door.

  26. Kristin Vent says:

    YUM! We love breakfast burritos too. I think I will make a batch this week and have them ready for that dreaded first week of school. I’m a new follower via CraftOManiac.

  27. MomOnTimeout says:

    So good right? Definitely what I was thinking about school – so quick and convenient and then you get a great breakfast in at the same time. Thanks so much for following!

  28. MomOnTimeout says:

    What a great idea for a brunch party! Thanks Ann – I am going to have to remember that. Thanks for stopping by!

  29. MomOnTimeout says:

    Thanks for stopping by Sherree. Definitely give it a try – they are worth it :)

  30. These look delicious! I have been doing the homemade waffles and freezing them for my sons, but they would love to have these once in awhile too! Great post for the start of a new school year – thanks!

  31. Wow, thanks for the overview, you have inspired me to get myself more in gear, my family loves breakfast burritos!

    http://www.sweettreatsandgoodeats.com

  36. Love it! I must do this!

  37. Love this!! I’ve done so many freezer dinners and lots of muffins for breakfast but never a main dish for breakfast! This will be fantastic for when school starts!! thank you, thank you!!

  38. MomOnTimeout says:

    Yes they really are wonderful. My husband has been asking me for some Sausage and Egg Muffins so I think I’ll be trying those soon.

  39. I love breakfast burritos. What a great idea to freeze them! Thanks for sharing.

  40. Monzanita says:

    This is an awesome idea! I did my own hot pockets, so the next big cooking day I might try these too!

  41. Sometimes I make these as a breakfast for lunch or dinner but never thought about freezing a batch. GREAT idea!

  42. Janelladaniels says:

    I made some of these for my husband to take to work for the week and somehow he ended up giving most of them away on the way to his office!!! Lol, so I guess I’ll be making more this week. Thanks for the great instructional!

  43. These look good! What a time saver on busy mornings too. I’m putting this idea on my Blog Bucket List!

  44. MomOnTimeout says:

    They really are perfect for those busy mornings. Thanks for stopping by!

  57. These look amazing. I’m going to make a huge batch today with Trader Joe’s low-carb, whole wheat tortillas. Thanks for sharing!!!

  58. They look delicious!

  59. Saw this @ Tasty Tuesday. We love breakfast burritos (although we usually eat them for lunch). Have always wanted to try freezing them. Thanks for the instructions/pics!

  60. Vivienne @ The V Spot says:

    Genius! I love it!

  61. What a great idea! I think that will be a hit with my family.

  62. MomOnTimeout says:

    Definitely give them a try – the burritos are such a great time-saver in the morning and not to mention super yummy!

  63. This is GENIUS. Thanks for sharing!! I have a hard time eating first thing in the morning but if I already had done most of the work it would make getting that “most important meal of the day” down much easier.

  64. LOVE this idea! I think my hubby would love these. I’d love it if you’d link this up to my Weekend Warrior Link Party on Mondays. http://www.askannamoseley.com/search/label/Weekend%20Warrior%20Link%20Party

  65. Kyle and Jessica Winter says:

    Thanks for the great idea. My MIL always made freezer burritos when we were younger, I hadn’t generalized the idea to breakfast burritos though. My Hubby will love these. Thanks! – Jess at OlyMomma

  66. They sound absolutely delicious, and well worth the effort.

  67. Found these on Pinterest and made up a batch yesterday! It took about 2 hours for me from start to finish, but I’m slow in the kitchen. I was wondering if there would be a reason why I couldn’t scramble the meat and potatoes in with the eggs to avoid some of the assembly line steps?

  68. Trish @MomOnTimeout says:

    @Jodi
    Hi Jodi! You absolutely can cook all the ingredients together if you are going to make just a single type of burrito. I often will make a “hash” where I fry the potatoes and meat and then scramble the eggs in the same pan. Throw in some cheese and voila! The reason I showed the assembly line was to illustrate how you can make a variety of breakfast burritos at a time. Hope this helps and thanks for visiting Mom On Timeout!

  69. looks divine. it’ll be featured tonight at our weekend party. thanks for linking up with us (:

  80. Wow! Looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

  81. That’s a good idea – I do a similar thing. I wrap mine in those Reynolds foil sheets and set the whole dish int he oven on ‘delay bake’ for mornings I dash off to work and they all sleep in. When they wake, the breakfast tacos are hot and ready. And my peeps love them! Thanks for the great recipe!

  82. Great recipe! Thanks for linking to Things I’ve Done Thursday.

  84. Yummm! I will definitely be trying these. I almost never leave time in the morning to eat breakfast, but these would be easy to heat, grab and go.

  85. This is the perfect recipe for a picky family!! I can customize it towards each members tastes!! Thanks for the tip!!

    bretzmoments.blogspot.com

  86. Truly an egg*cellent idea! I love the tip in the comments to customize them for individual tastes!

    I’m going to do this!

  87. Great post…a breakfast everyone loves and great for busy mornings or lazy weekends. Thanks for sharing!

  88. As a mom to three boys, this is a LIFESAVER.
    It’s one of those “Why didn’t I ever think of this” !!! type of moments.
    Thank you!

  89. Brilliant! My husband would love this idea.

  90. These are wonderful! I found them on Pinterest and decided I had to make them. I just whipped them up today (it took about 2 hours). Made too many potatoes and not enough sausage, but now I know for next time! Thanks for the wonderful idea. I hope my husband likes them. :)

  91. Amazing. Between walking the dog and wanting to hit the snooze button, this saves me from always having to grab a granola bar. Amazing!

  92. Hi Trish – I think this is my first visit to your blog. LOVE the idea of make ahead breakfast burritos as I’m NOT a morning person and the last thing I want to do is cook breakfast. Will be giving this wonderful recipe a try soon. Thanks for sharing it.

    :)
    ButterYum

  93. This sounds so delicious. What a great breakfast option and so easy too. I think my family would love these. Trying these soon.

  94. Brilliant! Simply Brilliant! I will be making a bunch of these real soon. Please consider posting them on my blog hop. http://www.savannahmcqueen@ymail.com

  95. THESE are a MUST TRY in my book! I wasn’t aware you could freeze eggs well! I saw this on my sister’s link party (Home Stories A to Z).

  96. Anonymous says:

    I am hooked, making these today! Thanks for the great ideas.

  97. Great idea! I will have to try these. I am picky about breakfast, but these sound so easy and good. Thank you!

  98. These sound yummy … my teenage son would love these after school!

  99. Anonymous says:

    I just put some of these in the freezer. I feel so accomplished! Your directions and quantities are perfect. I love your method of cooking the potatoes, and thankfully had a couple spoonfools left for me to much on. Yum! I ended up with 20 burritos. Not to shabby.

    Thanks for this great idea!

  100. @Anonymous Oh wonderful! I actually made some myself today. My husband wanted one batch of spicy sausage, one with Italian sausage (??), and then I made one with regular sausage for the kids. It does feel good getting those in the freezer and knowing I’ve got breakfast in a pinch :) Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!

  101. I”m blog hopping from Just Something I Whipped Up….genius! I love this idea and thank you for sharing!! I’m always looking for something quick on my way out the door to work in the mornings. This is perfect!

  102. @Lil Mys Ninja Thank you! I’d love to know what you think when you give them a try. Thanks for visiting!

  103. Yummy post! I’m having a Linky party too! I would love it if you would link up your favorite posts. Here is the link http://www.thesouthernproductqueen.com/one-stop-shoppe-linky-party

  104. Oh these look so yummy! I love that you can freeze them for later use. There’s only two of us here, so we always have leftovers lol I’m going to give this a go this weekend :)

    Great idea can’t wait to try, but FYI you can’t freeze potatoes

  106. @AnonymousHi there! What do you mean you can’t freeze potatoes? I do all the time – successfully, I might add :)

  107. @Trish – Mom On Timeout

    I definitely will! I’m planning a shopping trip this week and will be picking up the supplies! my boyfriend would love them too…i’m planning on adding some chorizo to his!

  108. I have been doing these with black beans and rice *and thats it* Man do these sound better:)

  109. i need to make some of these
    for my family too

    thanks for the ideas
    and i wanted to let you know
    that i’m featuring this post
    on Fridays Unfolded today!

  110. What a great idea. I rely so much on pre-packaged, frozen crap! Have to try these.

  111. LOVE this idea!! Mornings are so busy for us, too, especially since none of us are morning people. This is much healthier, too.

    Found your blog from Delightful Order. Following now.

  112. AWESOME idea! I pinned this one!

  113. oh, my these look so tasty! xoox,tracie

  114. BRILLIANT! We make breakfast burritos often, I wonder why we haven’t thought to freeze them. Thanks for sharing!!!

  115. I could live on breakfast burritos – what a great idea. I am featuring you on Tickled Pink this weekend.

  116. Instead of fresh potatoes I think I’ll roast a bag of frozen southern-style hash browns. I bet it would be great with the pepper & onion style also. Do you see any reason why these shouldn’t work?

  117. These are absolutely delicious! I subbed out the sausage and bacon and replace with purple onions and red and green bell peppers. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

  118. Anonymous says:

    Wondering … could prob. use diced hashbrowns, too, eh? Do the eggs get runny at all? What about using the oven …. could this work if you wanted to heat them up in the oven. Covered in foil … how long do you think you’d cook them for? And what temperature? Thanks – these look great!

  119. I love this idea. My husband loves burritos so this could be his instant breakfast since he goes to work at 5 am. Thanks for this I really like this idea. I am now following you. I saw your link at the Picket Fence.

    I made some a couple weeks ago, and here I am back at your blog getting the recipe to make more. We LOVE them! We wrap them in a dry paper towel and cook on high for 1 minute. Turning it over at 30 seconds. To go packs of Taco Bell sauce make this easy to grab to take to work.

    The directions for the bacon and potatoes in the oven are spot on and make this easier than heck to knock these out!

    Thanks!

  121. Can I just say that I love you??? I followed a link on pinterest to see this and will be back for more! I’m so excited to make these for next week. (Adios rushed week day morning breakfasts… Hello calm, leisurely breakfasts!)

  122. Yummy.. I love it! delicious food ready to eat in the breakfast.. great idea.. something I would love to do.. :)

  123. I’m loving this recipe. I collect ones that can go in the freezer since we tend to cook once a month for most meals then freeze, making mealtime so much easier. Add a salad or some brown rice and you’re done! Thanks for this!
    Oh, I pinned it and I’m now following you
    Jenn from http://www.justaddwatersilly.com, hopping from every creative endeavor

  124. Made these today! Put them up on my blog… linked back to you! :) YUMMY! Thanks so much for a great idea~ :)

  125. This recipe is wonderful! To be honest I have been making breakfast burritos for years but I hated getting up and making them. Your directions for making ahead and freezing them are genius! Takes away the early morning prep and work. I found it on pinterest and am featuring it on my blog.

    Thanks,

  128. Okay I KNOW my hubby would love these–he loves breakfast burritos!

  129. I can’t wait to try this out! I loved the idea so much that I featured a link to this post on my breakfast freezer meals round up. Thanks!

  130. Question: If I heat it up using the oven instead of the microwave what temperature would you set it at and how long would you allow them to heat? Also I want to add veggies instead; does that make them soggy or mushy?

    • The tortillas that I used I purchased at Costco. I’m not sure what brand they are but if you warm up your tortillas and keep them warm during the process, they should be very pliable and not crack. I’ve used several brands and not had a problem. The only thing I can think of is that maybe they are older or were heated up too much. You can also try heating them up in a damp towel, this keeps them super moist and should eliminate any cracking. I really hope this helps and Happy Easter!

  131. Hey hun. Just wanted to let you know that I featured this on my blog this morning. I would love it if you could check it out and grab my button :)

  132. What are your thoughts on adding avocado right before wrapping up? Would they get gross when you reheat? just sounded yummy :)

    • I would only add avocados after heating. I don’t think the avocados would stand up to be frozen and then heated up very well. But yes, it does sound yummy! If you have the time just slice them up and throw them in the burrito after heating.

  133. One of my favorite freezer meals ever is burritos. They’re great because you can fill them with just about any leftover meat, add a few staple ingredients and have lots of grab-n-go lunches anytime. I made lots of these right before my baby was born just for that reason. Thanks so much for sharing, Trish! Glad I found your blog today. I love learning mommy tips.

  134. I don’t have a microwave, would a toaster oven work?

  135. This is sooo great… I’ll be pinning!

  136. Yum, those look great, and it’s fabulous that you can make them ahead of time! Thanks for sharing at The Fun In Functional!

  137. I’m just now hopping on the freezer meal train, and I can’t get enough. I love the process. This will soon be added to the mix, I just pinned. Thanks for the great idea!

  138. I made these this week. They are very popular in our house :) Thank you.

  139. My husband LOVES these! He is on a heart healthy diet so I made a couple substitutions. I used some low sodium canadian bacon for the ham and bacon. I used eggbeaters for the scrambled egg. I did use sausage. My husband eats these for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Thanks for such a great recipe. Thank you for the great tutorial on folding and freezing. That was a great help. :)

  140. Thank you for this recipe. We have always made them with just scrambled eggs and sausage, but today got the nerve up to add every thing else. And they were wonderful. I ran out of Emeril’s so used greek seasoning and it was good. I used the walmart brand “Taco Size”. And now have some in the freezer for hubby during the week.

  141. trish these look so good and what a timesaver they would be during the week for my busy kids! Thanks!!

  142. I remember this post…one of my favorite breakfast ideas…I need to make some more!

  143. They look great. I need to do something like this for my kids again. They are so picky about what they will eat for breakfast.

    I made these tonight. I also used a baked eggs recipe since we were baking everything else: Melt 1/2 stick butter in a 9×13 glass dish. Whip 18 eggs with 1-1/2 c. milk and 2 t salt. Pour the eggs in the dish. Bake in preheated 375 oven for 10 minutes; stir solids in from the edges. Bake 5-7 minutes more. Wah-La. It is easy like your bacon.

  145. I found your recipe through Pinterest. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with wonderful step-by-step pictures and directions. I see this as a new weekend ritual for my daughter and me.

  146. Followed you from pinterest! Love this idea so much im making them right now! Mom used to make burritos with rice, beans, meat and cheese. One suggestion is just mixing all the ingredients(minus the tortilla and maybe the cheese) in a big bowl. Prep the tortillas, add cheese if not in the mixture and then scoop everything in the tortillas. This is how i make my enchiladas as well and its a lot easier. Stocking up my freezer is so much fun!! Married and mother of 3 boys

  147. Also i added shredded carrots and zucchini to the mix! Yum! Boys are chowing down on some for lunch now!

  148. OMG! These are so good! I made them but left out the ham and bacon and added yellow and green bell peppers as well as some fresh tomatoes and I left out the potatoes. Soooo yummy. I made 12 large burritos. We don’t have a microwave but I just popped these bad boys in the oven at 325 for 25 minutes. The outside gets crunchy but in a good way! It was like a breakfast chimichanga without the frying!

  149. I’m going to make these!

  150. Can you be more specific Mia? I haven’t seen anything on my end but the ads are pulled up based on websites and searches from your computer. If you can tell me specifically what offended you I could be of more help so I can submit a removal request to my ad servers.

  151. Just made these. Ended up with 30 of them. 6 of them never made it to the freezer. ( note to self: don’t make them when the kids are home!) thanks for the great post!

  152. I’m guessing you used the smaller size tortillas since I noticed a comment of someone who came up with 12 from the large ones. I also liked the comment idea of mixing all the items before divvying them up. I have them re-pinned on my Family Reunion | Trees | Roots board with the idea they would be great to serve when I have out-of-state family guests come visit (I hope they come)! http://pinterest.com/freshretrogal/family-reunion-trees-roots/ Thanks for sharing!

    Brilliant!!!!!!

  154. We flash freeze our breakfast burritos, then wrap them diagonally in a paper towel, folding in the ends, and place them vertically in a gallon freezer bag to store them in the freezer.
    No need to unwrap to heat.

  155. made a version of these a few weeks ago and they were sooo handy the past couple weeks! i just did sausage/egg/cheese, since that is all i had. a little tip, if you melt a couple slices of american cheese the last minute of scrambling your eggs, they don’t dry out as much when you reheat! i still put shred ched when i assembled, just put the slices in when scrambling :-)
