DIY Frozen Breakfast Burritos

I saw the idea for breakfast burritos on Pinterest a very long time ago and I have been making them ever since.  It's turned out to be a good thing for our family.  So here's how we make DIY Frozen Breakfast Burritos for about .40 cents a piece!

My Little Son loves having eggs or a protein for breakfast, but most mornings I just don't have time to cook up some eggs.  So this totally helps with that.  He can get one out of the freezer, microwave it for 1 minute and he's good to go!  I love to have them too.

Cook up a big 'ol batch of scrambled eggs.  We added turkey sausage and bell peppers.  Add whatever you love.  1 1/2 dozen eggs ($2.00) and 1 lb or turkey sausage ($3.50)

Get a bunch of tortillas.  I do whole wheat and white flour tortillas.  The whole wheat are healthier, but it's nice to switch it up sometimes.  I got mine for $2.08 per package of 10.

 Get your kidlets to help make an assembly line.  And fill 'em and wrap 'em in plastic wrap.  The fold-top baggies work well too.

I scoop about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of eggs onto each burrito.  You could add cheese or salsa here too.

Store individually wrapped burritos in large Ziplocs to keep them fresh longer.

So here's how we got our price:

1 1/2 dozen eggs $2.00
1 lb turkey sausage $3.50
1 bell pepper (from the garden, but can cost up to $1.00)
2 1/2 packages of tortillas $2.08 each, so $5.20 total

= 10.70 (without the cost of the bell pepper)

We got 25 burritos out of this batch.  So $10.70 divided by 25 burritos is about .43 cents!  You can make it cheaper or a little more depending on your prices or what you add.  Enjoy a quick, cheap, full of protein breakfast.

  5. How long do you typically microwave these for consumption after they have been frozen?

    1. It depends on your microwave, but ours is typically warm in about 1 min and 30 secs. Often we'll check it halfway through and rotate it. Add another 30 seconds as needed.
