Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burritos

You’re going to love these freezer-friendly breakfast burritos! They’re easy to make, a breeze to customize and great for those rushed, chaotic mornings!

These make for a great breakfast on the go, but if you have the time, I recommend enjoying these burritos with some homemade salsa and a fruit salad on the side.

The Easiest Make Ahead Breakfast

Breakfast burritos are super simple, I get that, but did you know they freeze and reheat well?!

That’s right. All you need to do is make an extra big batch of scrambled eggs, bacon and potatoes. We had breakfast for dinner the other night, so I grabbed all of the BIG skillets and we made a bag full of burritos to stash away in the freezer. It was so easy!

If you’re looking for make-ahead breakfast ideas, I suggest giving these freezer-friendly breakfast burritos a try. They can be prepped days, weeks, even months in advance and reheat perfectly. These are such a great idea for those of us who have crazy, chaotic mornings!

How to Make and Freeze Breakfast Burritos

These are the ingredients we included in our burritos:

  • 12 eggs
  • 10 slices of bacon
  • 1 cup of chopped ham
  • 3 cups of hash browns or home fries
  • 2 cups of shredded cheese.

Those are the basic ingredients. You can swap out the ham for sausage and you can add veggies like peppers, onion, tomato and spinach. The options are endless! If you don’t want 8 of the same kind of burritos, you can easily customize each to your liking.

COOK. Cook the potaoes, meat, eggs, and any vegetables you want to add.

COOL. After everything is fully cooked, let it cool completely. This is crucial so the ingredients don’t “sweat” inside the tortilla and make the burrito soggy.

ROLL. Divide everything between 8 large tortillas (regular, spinach or whole wheat), roll it up and then place them in plastic ziploc bags.

LABEL. I like to label them with a date. I’ve made these a few times now that I’ve memorized the time/temp for reheating, but you should probably add that too 🙂

When You’re Ready…

There are a couple ways to reheat the breakfast burritos. 

Pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes on high, then flip it and repeat.

If you’d rather reheat it in the oven, either wrapped in foil, or unwrapped placed on a baking sheet. Although, you’re looking at a good 20-30 minutes in the oven. Not so ideal when you’re in a hurry, but definitely an option.

  1. I am always pressed for time on hectic mornings, but, this is an idea for getting the kids to do things for themselves without the mess that can accompany their working on things for themselves. Great idea looking forward to having a family get together to manufacture them then they get to savor their work and family unity as they munch the fruits of their labor. Bravo! Looking forward to this, thank you

  2. Do you know or have the nutritional info on this? Im looking to start dieting and am looking for things I can pre-make

    1. I don’t, but you’re welcome to plug the recipe into a counter online. You could always use whole wheat tortillas and cut back on the cheese and bacon 🙂

  3. Have you ever tried wrapping them individually and reheating in a roaster? Curious to know how long it would take to warm them up in a roaster!

  4. Just a note for anyone making these, the reheat directions will leave your buritto scorching hot and hard as a rock, instead defrost for 2 mins, flip and heat on high for 1-1.5 min, it will turn out perfect!

  5. Is there a way to do sausage with this & what are your suggestions? To buy the frozen pre-cooked sausage? I’m new to making food for the freezer. I’d appreciate any suggestions. 🙂

  6. Just made these and put them in the freezer.  I would recommend using 12 inch burritos because I had at least half of the egg mixture and a generous amount the meat left over because I could barely roll them up. I ended up making 12 of the 8inch tortillas and still had leftover eggs.  I ate one before I froze the others and it was delicious, looking forward to popping the in the microwave for those busy mornings.  Thank you!

  7. Do you possibly have an estimated Calorie county for 1 Burrito if it is prepared as your recipe states? Thank you

    1. Hi Natalie, unfortunately I do not. It will vary on what exactly you put in it (and how much), what oils you use, and the tortillas you use.

    Breakfast Burritos are a family favorite. I love that you can freeze them and pull them out in a rush. Which is basically every morning at our house…lol!
