This is a super easy and delicious breakfast you can throw together in no time.
Use your imagination for ingredients and the sky is the limit for use of any possible leftovers. It's especially fun when preparing for company because everyone can choose their own fillings. Of course, they're fun and yummy for lunch or dinner, too.
Here is a list of my favorite ingredients which changes depending on the mood of the day and/or what's in the fridge or pantry.
Evenly spread/place ingredients of choice along the center of each tortilla.
Slightly fold over opposite ends of tortilla and then wrap the other two sides over one another. If the final fold pops up, a bit of water spread between the final folds usually helps or use a toothpick.
Now is where you choose to eat "as is" or if you want to heat for a short time in the microwave, heat in a slightly oiled skillet or heat on a grill. Each choice gives a subtle flavor change and is fun to experiment with. :-)

Here is a great recipe to make in bulk and keep in your freezer. This recipe makes 24 breakfast burritos that you can freeze and use as a quick and easy breakfast.
These ingredients are optional.
Scramble eggs in large skillet until cooked. Stir in cooked sausage. Add any of the extras you choose. Save the salsa and shredded cheese.
Wrap the Tortillas in a damp paper towel and warm in the microwave until they are warm (about 1 minute).
Place 1/2 cup of scrambled egg mixture into a tortilla. Then add a little of the shredded cheese and a spoonful of the salsa. Then roll burrito-style.
Wrap each burrito in foil and freeze in single layer on a cookie sheet. When fully frozen transfer wrapped burritos to large zip-top freezer bags and freeze.
Remove foil and wrap in a paper towel. Cook for about 2 minutes in the microwave. Cook times may vary depending on how much power your microwave has.

I make breakfast burritos and freeze them. Then if we are running late all I have to do is microwave them and walk out the door!
Brown the sausage and chilies together and drain. Place a small amount of cheese and about 1/8 of the ground sausage down the center of a tortilla.
Recipe for Breakfast Burritos. Take taco shells out of fridge and bring to room temperature. Fry potatoes according to directions. Turn heat down to medium. Pour in eggs and scramble with the potatoes. Add some salsa and shredded cheese to taste.
Place on warm flour tortillas roll up tight burrito style; fold short ends first then fold long ends. I place them in large freezer baggie and heat as needed in microwave...
Better and thriftier than fast food chains!
Mix ham with 2 cups of cheese, the onion and green pepper. Put 1/3 cup mixture on each shell, roll and place seam side down in 11x17 baking dish.

I am looking for a recipe for a freezer friendly breakfast burrito. I need one "without" eggs. I am trying to find different recipes for my husband for breakfast. Thanks!

Ground beef fry it in pan along with potatoes, cut up into tiny squares you can add cheese if you like or salsa. This is very good anytime.
