  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

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)

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 ins...

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 burr...

Put sausage and bacon in it and doubled the tortillas so they dont tear.

Making these is a bit of work but once you have all the ingredients cooked, the assembly line to make them went smoothly. We went away on a group trip to the mountain cabin. Made and froze these...
