Breakfast burritos

PLEASE visit my Caramel Corn Recipe...There is a give away going on and I really want to give it to someone!  No entries yet!

A few weeks ago, during my freezer cooking marathon, I needed sausage for my salisburry steak.  I went to Sam's and purchased 3 of the 2 pound rolls and I knew I would have enough for the salisburry steak and for some to have cooked and ready in the freezer for pizzas.  I didn't anticipate the handiness of having the sausage cooked for other things...but I have loved having it in the freezer!  A couple of weeks ago I got out some sausage for pizza and we never got to it, so I whipped up some breakfast burritos.  I usually just make them with eggs and cheese, but I decided to add the sausage and made up a bunch. 

I filled them, with eggs and sausage, and topped with cheese.  

Then I rolled them up, burrito style.  

I wrapped them in paper towel and threw all of them in a gallon sized freezer bag.  

I ended up just leaving mine in the fridge, but you could put them in the freezer to grab on a busy work morning...I have been sending them with Aaron.  You could add green peppers, onions, and/or salsa if you want, but I haven't yet.  We warm them in the microwave for about 30 seconds (from the fridge) and yum!  I made a rather large batch this weekend, because our house was full--and they were an easy, warm, meal.  Thankfully, they take very little time to make.  I thought they might be more time consuming, but they weren't. I hope you'll try these too!  
Blessings to you,

This is a great idea and one that will come in handy for my family as my husband typically takes his breakfast with him to eat in the car.

Thanks for sharing! ~Lisa

I love breakfast burritos! YUMMY! Sometimes I cook peppers and onions with the sausage for a little extra something. Even my 2 year old eats them! Thanks for making me hungry!

Awesome! I am a MoM too. I have 8 year old twins and a 2 year old daughter. I make these ALL THE TIME for my husband. He loves grabbing one on the way to work in the morning. I wrap mine in foil, after the paper towel. That way, he can remove the foil, heat them up, and rewrap them to keep them warm. Thanks for posting this!
