Breakfast Burritos are always such a hit in my house and I love making them because they are just so easy! They are the perfect “on the go” breakfast and they won't make a mess!
My husband prefers it when I add salsa to the burritos just to give them a little more flavor and spice them up a bit. When I do that, I will usually mix the salsa with the meat (after it has been cooked) and then drain out the excess liquid from the salsa. Otherwise, it can easily turn in to a sloppy mess!
I really like to make a big batch of these for the freezer. This way, we have an easy-to-reheat breakfast already made…and it is perfect for my husband on the mornings that he needs to leave for work at 5:00am! Nobody wants to be up cooking eggs at 4:30am! To get these ready for the freezer, I usually skip the step of melting the cheese and just assemble them as normal. Then you can just wrap each burrito in paper towels and stick them in a freezer bag. To reheat them, just place them in the microwave with the paper towel still wrapped around the burrito and microwave at 50% power for 90 seconds!
Anyway – on to the recipe:
