Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos

A hearty, filling make ahead breakfast burritos recipe with bacon, eggs, potatoes, and cheese wrapped in a warm tortilla are the perfect weekend breakfast.

As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, very few people get the chance to start their day off with a warm and hearty meal.

Fortunately, we have a breakfast burritos recipe here that you can make over the weekend and enjoy it all week long.

In less than an hour, you can prepare our recipe on Saturday or Sunday and store it in your fridge for later on in the week.

This breakfast burritos recipe has all the staples including scrambled eggs, seasoned oven fries, and smoky bacon. Best of all, it doesn’t become stale or flavorless when frozen.

To get started, go ahead and cook the bacon. A tip for cooking bacon is to use a little non-stick cooking spray, some aluminum foil, a sheet pan, and a cooling rack.

It allows the bacon to cook while draining the grease at the same time.

Simply, lay a sheet of aluminum foil on a sheet pan, then, spray the cooling rack with non-stick spray.

Afterward, place the rack on the sheet pan and the bacon on the rack. Pop everything in the oven for crispy bacon with hardly any clean-up involved.

While the bacon cooks, you can prepare the oven potatoes for our breakfast burritos recipe. Here’s something I noticed when it comes to cooking diced potatoes.

While cutting the potatoes try to cut every piece of the vegetable the same size.

Because, different sized cuts take different times to cook in the oven, while similar sized pieces will cook evenly in the same amount of time.

The last small tip I will add to our breakfast burrito recipe involves the storage of the dish. Before you freeze them, let the burritos cool for 10 minutes.

After that, wrap them in saran wrap before packing everything in aluminum foil. The plastic wrap will provide an additional layer of protection and helps to retain the freshness of the meal.

In closing, I invite you to give this recipe a try. Thank you for dropping by, and I wish you a long life, love everlasting, and full belly!
