10 burritos

Zap one of these frozen burritos in the microwave and you'll stave off hunger all morning. This recipe is my family’s favorite combo, but I sometimes use breakfast sausage instead of bacon. —Audra Niederman, Aberdeen, South Dakota

Ingredients

  • 12 bacon strips, chopped
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 10 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels. Remove all but 1-2 tablespoons drippings from pan.
  2. Whisk together eggs, salt and pepper. Heat skillet over medium heat; pour in egg mixture. Cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains; remove from heat.
  3. Spoon about 1/4 cup egg mixture onto center of each tortilla; sprinkle with cheese, bacon and green onions. Roll into burritos.

Can you freeze Egg Burritos?

Cool eggs before making burritos. Individually wrap burritos in paper towels and foil; freeze in an airtight container. To use, remove foil; place paper towel-wrapped burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until heated through, turning once. Let stand 15 seconds.

Health Tip: Breakfast burritos can be a smart choice to start the day because they include a good amount of protein. Make these healthier: Use whole wheat tortillas, skip the bacon, reduce the cheese and add veggies.
