Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels and crumble into bits. Keep skillet warm.

  • Whisk eggs, milk, and salt together in a bowl. Pour into the hot skillet. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until eggs are set, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Heat oil in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add frozen potatoes, garlic salt, and pepper. Fry until browned on the bottom, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until other side is browned, 4 to 5 minutes more. Let cool.

  • Cut 10 squares of aluminum foil slightly larger than the tortillas. Lay 1 tortilla on each square; evenly distribute Cheddar cheese on top. Add eggs, bacon, salsa, and potatoes to each tortilla, in that order. Tightly roll the burritos, tucking tops and bottoms in first.

  • Wrap aluminum foil tightly around each burrito, covering it completely. Place in resealable plastic bags in a single layer. Remove as much air as possible from the bags before sealing. Store in the freezer until ready to reheat.

  • Reheat by removing the aluminum foil, placing the burrito on a microwave-safe plate, and topping it with a paper towel. Heat in the microwave until evenly warmed through, 1 to 2 minutes.

I made 5 of these for my husband and he really enjoyed the breakfast burritos. I used La Victoria Roasted Pepper Salsa and instead of measuring, I just spooned the amount of salsa I felt was appropriate for him. Otherwise, I felt the amount of ingredients were spot on to yield the burritos. I don't think it's possible to write how to wrap a burrito any better than the recipe author did. It does get easier after wrapping the first one, following the written directions. Overall, my husband says this is a perfect and delicious recipe as written, but also easy to adjust if you'd like to use a different meat in the burritos (e.g. sausage, ham, etc.). Excellent and I'll be making these or another variant of them in the future for him. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Update 2/7/2019: Okay DO NOT try to reheat these from frozen. I managed to make it work by heating it for 3 minutes 1 minute at a time and turning it after each minute was up. This got the insides fully warmed but made the tortilla overcooked and chewy. Much better to remove individual burrito from freezer put in fridge then reheat for a minute or two. The texture also isn't what I wanted too heavy on the potatoes (using my 1.75 oz egg and potato) I would bump the egg to 2 or 3 oz and just make a lot more eggs than the recipe calls for then 1 or.50 oz of potato. Needs some tweaking basically. Might be a personal preference I like lots of eggs in my burritos however my husband prefers the potato so I'll be keeping the ratio as is for him. ORIGINAL: Overall a really great recipe! Only thing I would change is to season the eggs after they are cooked instead of before seasoning them prior to being cooked makes the end result watery. I also whisked them for a long time to make them airy and did the chef method of constantly and briskly stirring with a spatula until they start forming keeping them as smooth as possible but this takes a lot of effort which I only do because my husband is picky about eggs. I also used heavy cream instead of milk it is high in fat but I had some sitting around that needed to be used up and it is delicious in eggs. Sour cream is actually a better alternative to milk but milk is still more commonly used and in more fridges than sour cream Read More

Easy peasy to make. I watched a YouTube video on how to fold a tortilla and added the ingredients less the salsa. Mrs. does not like spicy:(0 I used mayo instead. Happy wife = happy life!;0) Read More

Hubby says Do it again?. We are on a temporary work assignment so we are living in our 5th wheel during the week. You know the limited space in a 5th wheel. So on the weekend I made these to freeze so he could have a warm breakfast every day without cooking. Great recipe. Thank you. Read More

The recipe is easy to follow but takes longer time then posted. They forgot about the assembly and wrapping time. And the time to let it all cool (unless serving it hot) before assembling burritos. But they turned out great and everyone was full and satisfied. I would definitely make it again. Read More
