From: A friend of mine mentioned the idea of making breakfast burritos ahead of time to freeze and I thought I'd try it. Here's what I put in mine... It makes 9 burritos.
1 package of about 8 fully cooked turkey sausage
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 lb cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup of salsa
2 tbsp oil
Start by finely chopping the turkey sausage. Set aside for a moment. Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium heat for about a minute. Then add the eggs and scramble on medium high heat, adding salt and pepper to your liking. When the eggs are about halfway cooked, add the sausage and finish scrambling the eggs. Now lay out the tortillas, egg and sausage mix, cheese, and salsa. Assemble the burritos, wrapping each one in a paper towel. Use a paper towel, which can be microwaved, not foil, plastic or wax paper. Make sure to eat one while it's hot! The rest of the wrapped breakfast burritos go into a freezer bag and into the freezer immediately to be warmed when you're ready to eat them. I warm mine in the microwave for about a minute. Now you've got a quick hearty breakfast that only take a minute to prepare! Yummmm...
Side notes: Do you need a lactose or dairy-free option? Use dairy-free cheese (click here for recipe) instead. Do you have little ones in the house? You can leave out the salsa and cut the burritos in half before wrapping in a paper towel.
