Steer clear of hunger without hitting the brakes—simply zap one of these frozen morning morsels in the microwave. This is my family's favorite combination, but try replacing the bacon with cooked breakfast sausage. —Audra Niederman, Aberdeen, South Dakota

"This is a nice, quick meal for on the go families. I added a little Tostitos Zesty Bean Dip to our burritos and they were a hit!"

"Well, i wanted to wait for the burrito to freeze so that i could thaw it to be able to fully write a review.

I made these with wheat tortillas and turkey bacon instead and they came out great. I would recommend making these with egg whites for a much healthier dish for those looking for one.
After freezing, i cooked these in my microwave (which is 900w) exactly to instructions but didnt notice the user used a 1100w. Oops. Anyways, it was still frozen. I cut the burrito in half and cooked for 30 seconds longer, full power. Still a bit frozen so I lowered the power and tried just a few seconds longer. Came out great. I love this recipe because i never thought of making breakfast burritos for freezing and using later! Thanks for informing me :)
For other 900w people, i would recommend maybe 70% power? Just experiment. You'll get it."
