Breakfast Burritos


I let you in on a little secret yesterday on my Monday Menu post - I don't usually cook breakfast - Mountain Man does.  However, there are some things that I do cook - and one of those things are Breakfast Burritos.  Now, I have to say, right up front, this is my interpretation of a recipe I found on The Pioneer Woman's blog.  (If you would like to see her recipe - 
here is the link -


Dee's recipe is great, but I think it takes a lot of time - Mountain Man and I love my version just as much - and it is quick and easy!
(Correction - 9/15/2012 - Pioneer Woman's name it Ree, not Dee - don't know where my head was when I typed that, or should I say fingers.  Sorry, for my error and it was not intentional)

Ingredients:

1 lb. Pork Sausage (I use Jimmy Dean)
1 Pkg. Hash browns (I use Simply Potatoes)
8 to 12 Large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 pkg. shredded cheese (I use cheddar today, but I have used a Mexican blend)
salt and pepper to taste
1 to 2 pkg. flour tortillas (I used the soft taco size tortillas)

That's it.

All the ingredients (except the milk.)

Let's go through the steps.



1. Brown sausage - drain on a paper towel.


Cook hash browns in the same pan.

(I use a non-stick electric frying pan)



While the hash browns are cooking - 
In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper.






Add browned sausage back to the pan with the cooked hash browns.


 Silly me, I forgot to take pictures of the next step - but it isn't hard. 

 Add the eggs to the sausage mixture and cook until the eggs are done, stirring gently.

After eggs are done - lay a tortilla on counter.  Place egg mixture on tortilla.  Top with cheese.  Roll into a burrito.




Depending on how many eggs you use and how large you make each burrito,  will determine how many burritos you will end up with.  On the day I fixed these I used ten eggs and made twenty-two burritos.



Wrap the burritos in plastic wrap.




Then place the wrapped burritos in freezer zip-lock bags.



I put four burritos in a small zip-lock bag and then place several of the smaller bags into a larger zip-lock bag.


Place in freezer.

When you are ready to eat - take the number of burritos you want out of the freezer (we usually only do two at a time) - unwrap  (yes, I am making a big deal about this - if you have wrapped the burritos in plastic wrap you MUST unwrap them!) - place in a paper towel and warm ONE of the burritos for 45 seconds - take out - warm the second ONE for 45 seconds.  Then put the first one back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat for second burrito. 

I know this method of warming sounds strange, but we have found to be able to heat the burrito all the way through, this is the best way.

Serve with salsa, sour cream, or plain.  Your choice.

 We think that these are a good, quick breakfast for someone that is on the go (or for someone who doesn't want to cook one morning)!


Try these then let me know what you think!



Hugs -

Carol

    3. Linda, I made a batch of these. They are fantastic. Strangely enough, my frozen burritos were disappearing. Seems the baby girl (32yo) was coming into the house after her dad and I left for work and was enjoying the burritos too. The only problem I've had is trying to get the plastic wrap off while I was driving. I had to pull over to get the blessed thing off. They are wonderful!!

    1. Heh CAS! I knew that if I fixed this many of anything I had to be able to freeze them - it just took us a little while to figure out how to warm them up and get them warm all the way through - Can't tell you how many times we ate them with cold centers - LOL! (However, this way really does get them warm all the through.)

I also made them for a friend who unexpectedly had her 9 and 12 year old grandchildren come stay with her. Toddlers, pre-teens, teens and adults all love them.

    1. One of the things that I did not go into on the post is you can customize the burritos according to your needs. If you don't want to freeze them you can always use less eggs and even cut down on the sausage and potatoes (maybe 1/2 a pkg. instead of the whole thing). I'm just a little lazy and would rather make the big batch and freeze, but you certainly wouldn't have to.

    1. Sure - I don't see why not, if you prefer bacon over sausage. If you fry up a batch of bacon and then crumble it into the egg and hashbrown mixture it should be fine. Let me know how they turn out.

  35. I have been trying to find a good breakfast burrito recipe - and more importantly, the instructions on freezing/reheating! This is perfect! Do you know how long they might last frozen in the freezer? I'm a single girl so I probably can't eat through 20 burritos quickly (or rather, I probably shouldn't)!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Heather - thanks for trying my burritos and I hope you like them! I really don't know how long they will last in the freezer (my hubby never lets them last more than a couple of months - LOL!) but I would think that they would last as long as any other meat in the freezer (6 months, maybe?). You can also adjust how much you make - just use 1/2 the pkg of sausage and hash browns and use fewer eggs (like 6 to 10) and it will be fine!

  36. My family LOVES these burritos. I usually make them with the burrito size tortillas so they're quite a bit larger. I usually end up with 8 burritos, so just leaving them in the refrigerator works well. I've never tried freezing them, but I'm sure going to try it! Cook once, eat lots- love that!

  37. This recipe sounds great! We're making them for a family reunion this week. One question? It won't be practical to heat them in the microwave, since we'll have more than 40 people to feed. Is there a method for heating them in the oven? We aren't planning to freeze them, just refrigerate them.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't see why you couldn't put them in the oven (low heat) and warm them - the tortillas might get a little crusty (You might be able to put a damp paper towel on them to keep that from happening - or wrap them in aluminum foil to keep them from getting 'crusty'). Let me know how it turns out!

  41. My husband is a welder & works crazy hours so it's not always easy to whip up a good breakfast at 4 a.m.... and to be honest he's not always hungry at that time of the morning either (thank goodness sometimes :)) these would be an awesome way to stay home made but be able to take them with him to warm up when he's at work. It's also great for those Sunday mornings we're running late for church... which is just about every Sunday lol... thank you for the post, it's been pinned & I am definitely going to make them this weekend!! :)

  42. I am making these to take with us on vacation to the beach next week. I think they will also be great during the school year when we are all trying to get out the door -- something healthier than a pop tart! Yeah!

  48. Just whipped up a batch of these - I saw the pin this morning and couldn't wait to get started! I must have filled them a little more than I should have.. I used a full dozen eggs and only made 15 burritos!

    Very excited to send these with the hubs - he works out of town five days a week and I know he never gets a good breakfast.

    Thanks for the post! Can't wait to see more :)

  51. TIP.... IF YOU DO NOT HAVE HASH BROWNS, BUT HAVE REGULAR POTATOES USE A GRATER AND YOU WILL HAVE INSTANT HASBROWNS WITHOUTH HAVING TO GO TO THE STORE.. (OF COURSE PEEL THEM FIRST) :0)

  53. They sound great and I can't wait to try them!!! Two questions, do you have any idea how many calories one of them has? And, any idea how long they last in the freezer? It's just my husband and I, and I'm not sure how quickly we would go through all of them, and obviously want to avoid them going bad! Thanks so much!!! -Melissa

  54. Hi Melissa and Stephanie - Thanks for the comments and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond (I've been a little preoccupied -if you would like to see why look at the home page of my blog). Anyway, Stephanie and Melissa - I don't know how long they could be frozen for since mine never last longer than about 3 months (at best), but I would think about 6 months. I can say that at 3 months they are as good as the first day. Also, Melissa, I don't know how many calories they have - I've never tried to calculate them - but I guess you could take the nutritional information on the packages and "guesstimate" the calories. (Sorry, I just haven't been that concerned about it, but maybe I should try and figure that out with the next batch I make.) Sorry, I don't have definitive answers for you, but I hope you'll enjoy. BTW Melissa - it's just me and my husband too and they have never gone bad on us. Let me know how you like them!
    Hugs-

  55. I came across these on Pinterest and asked my husband if he'd like to try them... he leaves early and eats breakfast at work. The premade/prepackaged ones can be so expensive! We just made a batch and I had the hub try one to be sure they were something he would take... he ate one and our son and daughter each ate one, so I quickly wrapped the rest and my husband is looking forward to his work breakfast tomorrow! Thanks for the great recipe and tips!

  59. I have used this recipe many times as a breakfast casserole. Never in a million years would I have thought to put them in a soft tortilla shell and freeze for a quick breakfast. I am definitely going to do this, and I know my husband is going to love it...especially since he is usually running out the door to make it to work on time. :-)

  64. I make pretty much this same recipe except I use the Southwestern flavored Simply Potato Hash Browns for even a little more flavor.

    1. Hi Kelly - I have not fixed them while camping, but I have taken them with us already ready. All I had to do is warm them up. I think it would take quite a while to fix over a campfire or camp stove, but it would be doable. Good luck ..... but I just find it much easier to fix them at home and warm them up when needed - ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  75. Haven't gone through all the comments to see if someone else said this, but if you use wax paper instead of plastic wrap, you can microwave it with the wrap on. Actually, the wax paper kind of steams the burrito and makes it taste as fresh as it would have tasted right after you made them. I use Ree's recipe all the time and I use wax paper so it's easy to microwave.

  76. Thank you for this. It was one of those..well...duh...moments for me. I have one starting kindergarten in two weeks and these will be great for munching on those cold mornings while we walk. They'll keep little fingers warm! And big ones too. lol

      Well, I hope that those little fingers are staying warm, as I imagine it is starting to be a little chilly up your way. What part of Canada do you live? Mountain Man and I traveled up to Alaska a couple of years ago and came through Canada - it was still snowing during the middle of May! LOL!

  77. This is genius expressed in food!

    My son is a student and works 1/2 day prior to classes - he reports to work at 6:00 AM and is typically running late trying to get himself out of the door and on his way - and as a result he skips breakfast. I made these and arranged them in the freezer for him to microwave as he dresses in front of the microwave (Oh brother!) and he isn't just consuming one per morning - he is consuming 3 per morning and loving them!!!

    Many thanks for such a great recipe!

    1. Hi - hope I can help you here. I have found that if the tortilla's are a little old (or too cold) they will crack - I've actually had more of problem when they are old. I have a little trick that sometimes works - put them in a paper towel and moisten the towel - then warm them in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds. Hope this little tip will help you if you ever find you are having that problem again.

    1. Hi Jammie - Let me see is I can explain how to do it (instead of having pictures). Okay - after you put your ingredients onto the burrito fold in the sides - maybe about 1/2 inch. Then fold up one side while holding the sides and roll. I hope this explanation helps - maybe I'll post pictures on the blog to help - so come back and check it out.
      Have a great day!

    1. Hi Annette - I think the amount of burritos you get depends greatly on the amount of ingredients you put in the burrito (well, duh? right?) No, really, what I mean is - I don't make the burritos real big - I try and use the smaller size tortillas and I think that makes a difference too. I hope that you and your hubs enjoy them.

    Replies
    1. Nichole - you can make hash browns if you have a cheese grater. Just peel the potatoes and then grate the raw potatoes. After you grate them you can cook them as stated in the recipe. (You can even add chopped green peppers and onions if you would like while cooking the potatoes - it just adds a little extra flavor!)
      Hope this helps and if you have any other questions, please just let me know.
