Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos ingredients

Here is what you need:

18 eggs
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package Morning Star sausage, cut into bite size pieces (optional)
1 16oz container cheddar cheese, shredded
1 container chunky salsa (optional)
10-12  flour tortilla shells
 
 

Season and whisk eggs in a bowl

Step 1: In large bowl mix together eggs, heavy cream, and salt & pepper to taste.

Pour eggs into a pan with melted butter

Step 2: Melt butter in pan over medium-low to low heat. Pour in egg mixture. Let set for a minute or two.

Scramble the eggs over medium heat

Step 3: After eggs have set; stir ONE time. Just once. This is very important! Over-stirring scrambled eggs is the mistake most people make. The LESS you stir them, the fluffier and better they will turn out.

Add shredded cheddar cheese to the scrambled eggs

Step 4: After another minute, stir ONE time, then add one cup shredded cheese. Wait another minute then stir once more. Lower heat if necessary. Wait another minute then flip eggs upside down to make sure they are evenly cooked. Cook for about one minute longer and they are done! Remove from heat and let cool.

Prepare the sausage by cutting into bite size pieces

Step 5: Cut sausage in bit size pieces and set aside.

Add eggs and sausage, plus any other ingredients, into the tortilla and roll into a burrito

Step 6: Line tortilla shell with 1/2 cup egg and sausage then top with some more shredded cheese. Roll up each tortilla to make burritos, folding in the ends and rolling up. Once cool, wrap each burrito individually with parchment paper or saran wrap. Divide burritos into two gallon size freezer bags (be sure to label bags first!)  Freeze until needed.

These make-ahead burritos can be frozen for a quick and easy on-the-go breakfast

Step 7: When you’re ready to eat, unwrap the burritos, wrap loosely in paper towel and heat in the microwave on high power for 2-3 minutes until hot and cheese is melted. Serve with salsa and fresh fruit.
