Breakfast Burritos ~ Freezer Friendly Camping Recipe
This recipe is awesome for camping or just for an easy breakfast idea. Did I mention that it is also freezer friendly, you can make up a big batch of them and enjoy them for weeks to come. You can heat them up over a fire, in the oven or in the microwave (take the foil off), or fry them up in a skillet.
What you need:
- 8 eggs scrambled
- 4 -5 cups potatoes (cooked) butter and seasoning salt
- 1-2 cups breakfast sausage or italian sausage (more if you like)
- 2 cups grated cheese ( I use mexican blend)
- medium sized flour tortillas (10-15)
- Foil to wrap them in

You can customize these however you like. But this is how I make them for my family. I start by cooking up the sausage. I like to mix breakfast sausage and mild italian sausage. If you like a LOT of meat you might add more, but I normally cook about 1 1/2- 2 cups of sausage. I chop it into small pieces, once it is cooked thru I put it in bowl and set it aside. In the SAME pan that I just cooked the meat in I add the potatoes (washed and cleaned and chopped into bite sized pieces). The fat or drippings from the sausage helps flavor the potatoes, and it also helps them NOT stick to the pan. I like to season the potatoes with steak seasoning, seasoning salt and garlic powder.
If they look like they are sticking you can add a little butter to the pan. I also like to add about a 1/2 cup of water to the pan and put the lid on. This helps the potatoes cook faster. Once the water is gone, I take the lid off and let them crisp up and brown a bit. Once the potatoes are cooked I put them aside with the meat. I then whisk the eggs and cook the scrambled eggs.
Once you have the eggs, sausage and potatoes cooked it is time to assemble your burritos. You can use any tortilla, I use the medium sized ones. This recipe will normally make about 15 burritos. If your kids are not picky and will eat everything in the burritos you can now combine the eggs, meat and potatoes. If they are picky keep them separate so you can custom make their burritos. Add a scoop of filling to the middle of the tortilla top with cheese, fold the sides in roll up to create a burrito, wrap in foil.
You can now store them in a ziploc bag in the freezer till you are ready to eat them. Once ready to eat thaw, then heat them up over a fire, in the oven or in the microwave (take the foil off), or fry them up in a skillet. If you are heating them over a fire put them in the coals (not an open flame) and turn them every few minutes. They should be ready to eat in about 6-9 minutes depending on the temperature of the coals.
