We recently discovered a wonderful breakfast food to stock up in the freezer – egg burritos. I had decided to make up a bunch of meat and bean burritos and then decided to try some egg burritos. I wasn’t sure how well the scrambled eggs in the burrito would freeze. Would they be good or would they be rubbery or watery? I’m pleased to tell you that they were wonderful. Since I didn’t want to store them in aluminum foil, we wrapped them singly in plastic wrap and then froze them. After they were frozen, we grouped the burritos in gallon Ziploc bags and put them back into the freezer.
Frozen Egg Burritos
Sausage, fried (or whatever meat you want)
Assemble the burritos, putting on whatever condiments you desire. Some other goodies would be olives, avocado slices, pickled banana pepper slices, ketchup, etc. Close the burritos with a toothpick and wrap in plastic to freeze. To warm, take the plastic off the burritos, place them in a covered pan and heat in a 350 degree oven till they’re hot. If you’ll be eating them on the run, you can wrap them in foil and heat them. I also like to thaw them overnight so they don’t take as long to bake. Delicious!
If you know of something to wrap the burritos in other than foil to heat them to go, I’d love to hear from you. I like to use as little foil as possible because of aluminum’s implication in Alzheimer’s.
UPDATE: I received several replies suggesting I use parchment paper. Thank you!
