I have a strong addiction to breakfast burritos. I eat one almost every day, especially when I am at work. When you are buying them off of the shelf, the expense can really add up. The ones that I have been eating range in price from $1.99 to $2.49. Before I know it, I have spent a lot of money on burritos. Now I can happily say that those days are behind me. How did I kick the habit, you ask? I didn’t. I did start making my own frozen breakfast burritos, however. Most of us don’t have time to make a burrito every morning, so I started making batches of burritos and throwing them in the freezer. This way, I can grab one of my way out the door and I am set. It is such a money saver! You will need the following ingredients:
Peppers, onions, scrambled eggs, meat, tortillas, cheese and frozen tater tots.
Start by scrambling eggs. Set them aside once they are cooked and then sauté the vegetables and sausage together. It is very important that you let the cook food completely cool before assembling your burritos. If you don’t, the food will sweat once it starts to freeze. That ice it ends up making you leave you with super soggy burritos. Nobody wants that. Yuck! Once everything has cooled, assemble like you would any other burrito.
After it is all put together, roll it up!
Bam! After that, I wrap mine in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of foil.
Now it just needs to be popped into the freezer. It is also a good idea to write what type of burrito you have on the top if you are making multiple kinds. These I made have smoked sausage. I made a batch last week with chorizo. They were amazingly tasty! There are so many options with these. You can truly customize them to fit your tastes. It is also nice to know exactly what is going into your food.
After all was said and done, this cost less than $1.00 per burrito. Those are some significant savings! Breakfast on the go doesn’t have to break the bank when you just put in a little work.
