Egg Burritos Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + freezing YIELD:10 servings


  • 12 bacon strips, diced
  • 12 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 1-2 tablespoons drippings. Add eggs, salt and pepper to drippings; cook and stir over medium heat until the eggs are completely set.
  • 2. Spoon about 1/4 cup of egg mixture down the center of each tortilla; sprinkle with cheese, onions and reserved bacon. Fold bottom and sides of each tortilla over filling. Wrap each in waxed paper and aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 1 month.
  • 3. To use frozen burritos: Remove foil. Place waxed paper-wrapped burritos on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave at 60% power for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until heated through. Let stand for 20 seconds. Yield: 10 burritos.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

"I make a version of this all the time. They are great just with bacon and hot Louisiana Hot sauce.

I recommend using whole eggs because the yolk is where all the vitamins are. Egg whites are not longer considered a "health" food. White only have 3.6 g of protein and trace minerals. Yolks have omegas, B vitamins, A, C, D and calcium, iron, 2.7 g protein, potassium. selenium, and folate to name a few. Yolks are considered heart healthy."

"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."

"I made freezer food for members of my church for about 2years, when I lived in Calgary,& this is one of the food items most would have me make over & over again. When I asked them why they said that is was because they didn't have to make breakfast for their kids going on the bus, they just popped these in the oven on low to warm them up & they are ready to go. (plus their kids loved them.) I also did them for a big church function & had to make 24 doz. These went over like hot cakes!! I don't put in green onions, because some don't like them. But I do put salsa & sour cream on the side."

"I know it won't be the same, but I will use salsa instead of bacon grease to cut some of the fat and calories."
