These make-ahead, freezer friendly breakfast burritos are the perfect meal prep for busy weeks! They’re filled with protein, fat and fiber to help keep you fueled throughout the morning.
I know many people are still working from home and may have more time to cook. But let’s be real, I don’t think anyone wants to prep themselves breakfast, lunch, and dinner all day every day. I love having an easy breakfast option on hand to warm up while I get ready for the day.
I always have tortillas stocked, both small and large, to incorporate into quick meal. They’re so versatile, and can be used for any meal of the day. Tacos, wraps, quesadillas, and even tortilla pizzas are all on a weekly rotation in our house. Mainly because they’re delicious, but also because they’re easy to whip up!
I’m always looking for more grab-n-go breakfast ideas so that Tomer has something to take in to work. He loves my breakfast egg muffins, but I knew he would love these breakfast burritos even more.
What goes into these freezer-friendly breakfast burritos
- large tortillas, about 10″ wide. Whole wheat, white or grain-free work well!
- scrambled eggs
- fajita veggies
- shredded cheese
If you want to keep these dairy-free, you can substitute your favorite vegan cheese. If you want to make these vegan, mashed black beans would be a great substitute for eggs!
I love to serve these with Greek yogurt in place of sour cream, salsa, and a little bit of hot sauce.
Storing your breakfast burritos
I like to wrap each burrito individually in parchment paper or tin foil, and place in a reusable storage bag. You want to be sure to place them at the top of the freezer or in the door, so that they don’t get smashed inside in the freezer. You can also store these in a freezer-safe container!
Reheating your burritos
There are two options to reheating your burritos. One is much quicker in the microwave, but I know some people may not have one at home so there are oven instructions as well.
- MICROWAVE INSTRUCTIONS: remove your burrito from the freezer and unwrap it. Place it on a microwave safe plate, and warm for 1 minute. Flip over and warm for additional minute. You can also choose the “defrost” setting for 2 minutes. If you plan on microwaving, I recommend grilling each burrito on a pan prior to freezing, as you’ll see in step 5 of the recipe below!
- OVEN INSTRUCTIONS: remove your burrito from the freezer and place on a sheet pan over the parchment or tinfoil it was wrapped in. Bake on 350 F for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way through. I like to use my mini oven for this step since it heats up quickly.
Since the oven instructions are longer, I would pop it in to warm while you get ready for your work day so that it’s ready by the time you sit down!
Easy, delicious, breakfast burritos are going to be your new favorite meal prep!
I’m always looking for something yummy and healthy to make.
I hope you try them!
