i found this idea on the internet (i think pinterest) for making breakfast burritos in bulk and then freezing them individually. it would make for quick meals, or on-the-go-meals. great idea! i shared the idea with hoosier man and he loved it. especially since the boys and he make egg and cheese burritos all the time for breakfast.
but this recipe added crumbled sausage and hashbrowns. over the top burritos. sounded awesome.
here's what we did:
1. fried up a couple pounds of hot jimmy dean sausage. we ended up only used 1.5 pounds so we baggied up individual servings of sausage for omelets, or burritos later.
2. fried up 1 bag of shredded hashbrowns and 1 large Vidalia onion, diced. i didn't worry about crustiness because, hey, they're going into a burrito.
3. scrambled up a dozen eggs. and then set up an assembly line at the table. we gently heated the burritos for ease of folding, sprinkled on some 4-cheese mexican shredded cheese, scooped on the hashbrowns, then the sausage, then the eggs.
4. the boys began rolling the burritos and wrapping them in plastic wrap. we ended up with 17 large burrito-size burritos (these are the largest tortillas you can buy). we decided on this size of burrito because that is the size the boys normally eat for breakfast. granted we could have made a lot more but we felt the boys would go for seconds if they were smaller.
5. the last things we did was place our wrapped burritos into a freezer bag. it took 3 freezer bags. now when we want a burrito we can just grab one out of the bag and microwave it. we'll have to figure out how long once we start grubbing on them.
this is a wonderful idea. and i'm sure this will become a normal routine for us.
