Variety can be the spice of life – especially when it comes to food, right? Breakfast is an easy one to get in a rut – cereal, cereal, cereal. But if you want to break out of that rut, try one of these past breakfast recipes.

But, for now, here’s another breakfast idea for you – breakfast burritos! This is a little more complicated than my typical meals, but it’s still worth it because this recipe makes a lot at one time. Which means you can eat a couple and freeze the rest. So 30 minutes of effort equates to lots of meals!
This is not a scientific recipe with exact measurements. Like beans? Add the full can. Just tolerate beans? Leave them out or just use ½. Want it spicy? Use the HOT Rotel or add more seasoning. Really like eggs? Add an extra egg or two. Can’t stand spinach? Leave it out all together.
Freezer Friendly Breakfast Burritos
- 12 ounces sausage (or 1 lb of ground turkey or ground beef)
- 1 packet taco seasoning (can skip if you want - add a little chili powder and/or cumin instead, if desired)
- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (can use less if you want)
- 1 can Rotel tomatoes
- 1 1/2 cup spinach (a large handful)
- 5 eggs, beaten
- dash of milk (2 Tablespoons or so)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 c shredded cheddar cheese
- 12-14 tortillas
- Brown meat with taco seasoning until cooked. Drain.
- In empty pan, saute spinach for just a minute or two until it starts to wilt.
- Add in eggs, milk, salt & pepper. Cook until eggs are scrambled, stirring constantly.
- Add meat, black beans and tomatoes back into the pan. Mix.
- Add to a tortilla. Leave enough room to be able to roll it up.
- Add a sprinkling of cheese on top.
- Fold it like a burrito because it is one! You're done!
- To serve: Microwave for 60 seconds until heated through.
- To freeze: Put the rolled burritos next to each other on a cookie sheet. Once filled, place in freezer for a few hours. Take them out and put into freezer safe bag. To eat, microwave for 90 seconds or so. Might take long depending on how frozen they were. I find it works best to flip 1/2 way through.
- Wanna go low(er) carb? Skip the tortilla and just eat the "stuffing" out of a bowl.
