Healthy On-the-Go Make Ahead Burritos

These freezer breakfast burritos are great for mornings on the go! I often warm them up for my husband as he’s getting ready for work. You could also send them off with your kids before school.

The best part about having these burritos ready in the freezer whenever I need them is that they’re healthy. It’s often really hard to find healthy breakfast freezer meals in the grocery store so this is a great alternative. Plus, they’re really filling as well.

Making the Breakfast Burritos

These freezer burritos are really like any other burrito, and you can pretty much fill them with whatever you like. Don’t be afraid to customize! 

The main ingredients I use are ground pork, cubed potatoes, scrambled eggs, and cheddar cheese (see the full printable recipe below). I also like to add some green chili sauce on top of the filling for some extra flavor. I think some sriracha mayo would taste good in there as well!

Freezing the Breakfast Burritos

Once you have your burritos made and folded up tightly, freezing them is easy. Simply wrap each burrito in plastic wrap, place them in a large Ziploc freezer bag, and freeze. It’s as easy as that!

This recipe makes around 10-16 burritos so these will last you for at least a week. You could double the batch if you want more burritos but after 2 weeks or so in the freezer, they might start to lose some flavor.

Serving Tips

When you’re ready to eat one of your freezer breakfast burritos, simply remove one from the Ziploc bag, wrap it in a paper towel, and put it in the microwave on defrost for 3 minutes. Then heat it on high for 1 minute.

After heating it up, let it cool for a bit so you don’t burn your mouth off, and enjoy it with some sour cream of salsa. Yum!
