Egg 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
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
  • Makes
    10 burritos


  • 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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Spoon about 1/4 cup egg mixture onto center of each tortilla; sprinkle with cheese, bacon and green onions. Roll into burritos.
  • Freeze option: 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.

    We go camping as much as we can and this recipe allowed me to make these at home and freeze them, eating only what quantity we needed for breakfast. I did follow other suggestions and after cooled wrapped them in paper towel and into foil then freezing them. Worked great for a speedy hearty breakfast before we start the day adventure. Love this recipe...

    Great recipe! But all recipes are only guide lines, the possibilities are endless to make it your own! I’ve made this several times & each time I did something different. But the best my family enjoyed was simple. Fry or saut?e to your preference, fresh mushrooms, onion, sweet peppers in the bacon drippings along with a little s&p, added the eggs to scramble with that mixture. I freeze them wrapped in parchment paper instead of paper towel as we found them soggy after reheating even when all was cooled before putting them together.

    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.

    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.
