While granola bars and fruit are easy, this Freezer Breakfast Sausage Breakfast Burrito recipe is one of our favorites to make large batches of and keep on hand.
Nothing is as yummy as eggs, cheese, sausage wrapped in a warm tortilla. These freezer breakfast burritos really are a great staple in your home for quick breakfasts. You can make a large batch like this to wrap and freeze for later, or you can make them to feed your family a big brunch when the extended family is over. This is a large recipe, but it is so yummy everyone will come back for seconds!
You start with some of your favorite sausage. We prefer turkey or chicken sausage, but you can use pork. Just find what your family loves the best. Chorizo is even an option for some.
Brown your sausage, pepper, onion and garlic together until its' cooked through, then add in your eggs and seasoning. It's that simple. A quick skillet egg dish that then quickly transfers into your warmed flour tortillas.
We put a spoon in a tortilla, sprinkle on some cheese and roll burrito style. You can serve with salsa or pico if you wish.
