Freezer Breakfast Burritos

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

So here’s my other freezer breakfast – freezer breakfast burritos. I kept them really simple with egg, sausage, and cheese. I was able to get a package of tortillas for 69 cents. It said there was 10 in a package, but when I opened mine, I lucked out, there were 1!. I was able to get my dozen eggs for 99 cent, a bag of shredded cheddar cheese for $1.50, and then I purchase 1 pound of Jimmy Dean sausage for $3.

I must say I am a Jimmy Dean fan. For me, it’s worth the extra money to get Jimmy Dean (You can get big rolls of Jimmy Dean at Sam’s and Costco for a great price too). I have purchased other ground sausage before and nothing compares to the quality of Jimmy Dean. It was their reduced fat version that I used in these. So because I went for the pricier sausage I was able to make these for 54 cents each.

The other thing about the burritos is you can add so many other ingredients like green pepper, hash browns, onion, green chilies, salsa, garlic, tomatoes, or green onion. You can also use different meats. I didn’t mix salsa into the eggs because not everyone like the burrito that way. Those you like salsa can just dip their burrito in it instead.

Here is what you need to make the

  7. Freezer Burritos… When you take them out, do you have problems with the tortilla being soggy? After thawing them, how long to you keep them in the refrigerator?
    Looking for make ahead meals. This sounds simple enough.

    1. Wrapping them in the paper towel is key so they don’t get soggy. Also, you don’t thaw them, you cook them frozen in the microwave.

  9. Found these on pinterest. Just finished making them for quick breakfasts. I omitted the cheese as I cannot have dairy and added canned green chilis.

  17. Seriously, I love you right now! After yesterday's post and today's I am so happy! These are my husband's 2 favorite breakfast items and he either doesn't have enough time to make breakfast in the morning or he's worried he'll wake up our baby, so he hasn't been eating. He will be so surprised when I have these made and he has his favorite breakfast without cooking (besides popping them in the microwave). Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  21. I buy Jimmy Dean sausage at my local Costco–a 3 lb. roll for $5.99. It's not the reduced fat kind, but I think the price is worth it!

  23. This is a great idea to have a quick breakfast ready in a minute. Can I ask what size tortillas you used? do you fold the bottom up then roll like a burrito? I want to make these 🙂
