I can't live in the kitchen so I have found that if I cook in bulk and freeze or refrigerate leftovers I don't have to cook as often. Everyone in our family loves these burritos, I customize them in three different types and even set aside some to go in my husband's lunchbox for a warm breakfast as he sits at his desk after a morning commute. I only have to prepare them once every week to week and a half, so guess what? On those other 6 days I don't have to make breakfast.....ahhhhhhh, sit back and enjoy your coffee!
INGREDIENTS FOR HOMEMADE BURRITOS:
1 lb. breakfast sausage
1 dozen eggs
1 package med. size tortillas (24 ct.)
sliced sweet peppers, grated cheese, ect.
(This makes 24 servings and costs approximately $4.25 for the ingredients = $.17 per burrito)
Which coincidentally is 24 burritos for the price of ONE run through for breakfast at McDonalds!
STEP #1: Brown your sausage (or bacon or skip this if you don't eat meat :)
STEP #2: Crack your eggs into a large bowl. Scramble them in a frying pan.
STEP #3: slice your veggies and get out your cheese or other garnishes you prefer creating an assembly line of ingredients.
STEP #4: Microwave 2-3 tortillas at a time for 30 sec. to making them softer and more elastic for rolling without cracking or breaking.
STEP #5: scoop a spoonful of meat, then eggs into the center of your tortilla, garnish, then roll them.
STEP #6: I place 2 per ziplock bag for my husband's breakfast/lunchbox. For the kids I use one gallon size ziplock bag for storage in the fridge.
STEP #7: repeat the process until you run out of ingredients. Store burritos in the fridge or freezer.
STEP #8: Just microwave for 30 sec. to reheat when ever you need a quick hot meal.
