Breakfast Burrito Meal Prep

Freezer Breakfast Burritos

Eggs have received a bad rap in the past, but one large egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals, about 6 grams of protein, and only 70 calories. A dozen eggs costs around $2, so at 16 cents a serving, they also make an economical addition to your breakfast.

If you want to avoid the cholesterol found in the egg yolk, you can also use egg whites, available in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pound turkey sausage (or any meat you would like)
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 1 yellow squash, chopped
  • 1 purple onion, chopped
  • 3-4 potatoes, chopped
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • cheese, shredded
  • salsa (make your own if possible)
  • approx. 20 medium sized tortillas

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add the turkey sausage and veggies.
  2. Break the sausage up into tiny pieces and brown the sausage until completely cooked, and veggies are soft.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until combined.
  4. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add a tablespoon of butter and melt all over the pan. Add the eggs and scramble with the sausage and veggies until cooked through.
  5. Warm the tortillas in microwave per the package instructions.
  6. Layer sausage and veggie mixture, 1-2 tbsp shredded cheese, and a little salsa on a warmed medium-sized tortilla. Fold up into a burrito.
  7. Place each burrito on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and flash-freeze in the freezer for at least 60 minutes. Wrap each burrito in foil and store in a freezer bag in the freezer.
  8. When ready to eat, remove foil, wrap in a paper towel and microwave for about 60 seconds or until warm all the way through. Breakfast is served! Such a time saver in the morning!!
