I love breakfast burritos. When we go out for breakfast, 9 times out of 10 I will order a Breakfast Burrito. I regularly make them at home so I figured I would share one of my Eggs & Bacon Breakfast Burritos recipes.
What I really like about this recipe is that you can make them ahead of time and store them so when you are in a hurry you can grab one and zap it in the microwave.
I realize this recipe seems pretty basic on the surface but consider it as a starting point. Add peppers, onions or anything else you can think of. I'm just keeping it simple for now so you can build your own favorite breakfast burrito.
I love Bacon so that's what I decided to use in these burritos. Many prefer sausage in theirs so feel free to substitute and make it your own! Plus I think Bacon might be a little healthier for you. Mind you sausage has more protein. Choose wisely!
If you've ever wondered what part of the pig Bacon comes from check out the picture below. Surprised?
🥓 How to Make Bacon
If you need a little help figuring out how to make perfect bacon every time, make sure you check out my little tutorial on 3 Ways To Make Perfect Bacon. My preferred method is baking it in the oven.
And don't throw away that bacon grease! Bacon is expensive and the grease is great for making Scrambled Eggs, Grilled Cheese, Popcorn and even hash browns. It can keep up to 3 months if properly stored in the refrigerator.
If you are making these ahead of time, you have the option of storing them in the fridge or the freezer. I RARELY like to freeze my food but in this situation, it's fine to freeze them.
If you've never rolled a burrito before it might be a little intimidating. There are probably dozens of different ways to roll a good burrito and the internet is full of videos and tutorials so I won't go into details here.
If you are looking for a healthy side dish to go with these awesome burritos, I suggest you try my Keto Friendly Bacon Hash. It doesn't get much better than that!
💭 How do I reheat these pre-made breakfast burritos
If the burritos are frozen, place them in the microwave, still wrapped in plastic wrap, and cook for 1 to 1.5 minutes. Let it cool for a minute before removing plastic wrap.
If the burritos were in the fridge, heat them up in the microwave, still wrapped in plastic wrap, for about 30 to 45 seconds.
