I want to share a really easy breakfast tip with you. I have zero desire to start scrambling eggs in the morning before pre-school drop off. It’s hard enough trying to get everyone dressed and out the door there’s just no way I want to start making a mess on the stove. One weekend morning recently I made these simple egg + cheese burritos for the kids to eat for breakfast and they were a total hit. What made them even better was that they are easy for little hands to hold. And unlike breakfast sandwiches, if they are rolled nice and tight, the fillings don’t come spilling out all over the place.
The next weekend Mini requested the burritos again and I decided to make a big batch so that I could freeze them for an easy weekday breakfast.
What you need
Shredded cheese (I used a half cup)
Scramble the eggs. At the very end of the cooking process, toss in the shredded cheese and let it get all melty onto the eggs. In the meantime, lay out the tortillas on your counter top. Once the eggs have cooled for a second, scoop an even amount onto the center of each tortilla. (See photo). In order to roll the tortillas tight you need to tuck in the sides and roll from the bottom to the top. If you can’t figure out how I am sure there is an instructional youtube video to help. If not, let me know and I’ll make one, haha. Once they are rolled, place them seam side down while you of course eat one.
Wrap each burrito first in saran wrap and then in a piece of aluminum foil. Toss them all in the freezer until you are ready to eat them. When you want one, take it out of the aluminum foil. Place the burrito in the saran wrap into the microwave. Microwave the burrito on 50% for 1 minute. Flip it over and do it again, 50% for 1 more minute. Then unwrap it and enjoy!
My favorite part of this is not having to wash a pan just because we wanted breakfast burritos. I also add different things in mine so feel free to get crazy. We have tried diced ham, pepper + onions, sauteed spinach, chopped sausage and different cheeses. Let me know what your favorite combo is!
Here’s to hoping this makes the mornings just a smidge easier!
