Freezerritos!

Everyone has a variation of freezer burritos and after reading many of the recipes I decided that it couldn't be simpler.

I should have prefaced this by, I really dislike the time consuming task of packing up lunch and breakfast for myself and D every day, but it's worth it because we eat better food and feel better.

Enter the Freezerrito.

You can crack out about 12 of these suckers in about 40 minutes. That includes cooking the eggs and whatever breakfast meat you want to add.

Week one I used Jimmy Deans breakfast sausage.
Week two (currently) I had a bunch of bacon that needed to be used so that's what I put in them.

I prefer sausage in my freezerrito I've decided.

Other add ins
Salsa
Green Onion
Cheddar Cheese


Freezerrito Recipe:
You'll need foil for wrapping
Ziploc freezer bag so they aren't rolling all around the freezer.
a couple sprays of non-stick cook spray
12 Whole Wheat 8 inch tortllas
12 eggs well beaten
1lb of breakfast sausage or meat of your choice
1 cup of obrien breakfast potatoes
2 cups shredded cheddar
4 diced green onions
1 container of fresh salsa

Cook the sausage, drain and set aside in a bowl.
Wipe the skillet, give it a couple toots of the non-stick spray and fry up your obriends till they are brown.
A couple more toots of non-stick spray and you can scramble your eggs... you want them slightly underdone because they will cook more when you reheat your freezerrito.

In a large bowl mix up the eggs, sausage and potatoes till they are all pretty evenly distributed amongst each other...

lay out 12 sheets of foil
stack up 12 tortillas

using a 1/3 measure cup or a large spoon put a scoop of egg mixture in the tortilla, sprinkle with about a tablespoon of cheese, a pinch of green onion, and a little salsa like a half a tablespoon. fold up the sides of your tortilla and roll from the bottom. Keeping the seam down, place on the foil and roll er' up tight and set aside.
repeat till done.

put them in the freezer and all week you'll have breakfast for you and yours... I have mine with yogurt and fruit on the side and it gets me to lunch. :)

When you go to reheat it really depends on the microwave you are using but anywhere from 2-3 minutes is good.

play around with them, change what breakfast meat you use, the cheese, the veggies, you don't have to use potatoes, I threw them in the first time because they were in the freezer, I didn't use them this week because, well there weren't any in the freezer...

once again I've failed to take a picture of the actual burrito and when I thought about it it was half gone and since it was on a cheap paper plate and not a pretty plate like I have at home I chose not to share my half eaten breakfast with you...

Happy Wednesday!!
