Egg Burritos Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 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


  • 1. In a large 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.
  • 4. Freeze option: Cool eggs before making burritos. Individually wrap burritos in paper towels and foil; freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bag. 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. Yield: 10 burritos.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

Recipe Note

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.

"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."
