Breakfast burritos are the perfect way to start your day. Packed with protein and vegetables, a homemade burrito is sure to power you all the way through until lunchtime.
Baked Breakfast Burritos
Breakfast burritos are a much loved morning treat, but unfortunately, one that most people write off as being too complicated to make at home first thing in the morning.
This recipe not only makes some gooey, gooey, and cheesy breakfast burritos but makes them well in advance of when you want them.
While it is inevitable that you will eat one or two as soon as they come out of the oven, the rest can be wrapped up and frozen, letting you have homemade, high-quality breakfast burritos anytime you want them!

How To Make Baked Breakfast Burritos

• Sauté the mushrooms, onions, green pepper, and garlic in the drippings until tender
• In a bowl beat the eggs and the sour cream
• Stir in ¼ cup of cheese and enchilada sauce
• In a skillet, melt butter and add the egg mixture
• Cook over low heat, occasionally stirring until the eggs are set

• Spoon the mixture into the center of the tortillas and roll up
• Place seam side down in an 11×7 baking dish

How To Store Your Breakfast Burritos
Breakfast burritos can be a little time-consuming to prepare, which is not always ideal first thing in the morning when you are hungry. Preparing your burritos beforehand solves this problem and means that they can be ready in just a few minutes.
Simply follow the instructions above; however, once your burritos have been rolled, rather than baking them, wrap them ready for the next morning.
Whether storing your burritos in the fridge ready for the following morning or planning on freezing them in bulk, it is important to ensure that they are wrapped and stored properly.
Firstly use parchment paper to wrap each burrito individually before further wrapping each one in plastic wrap. Doubling wrapping your burritos will help them to keep their shape while stored. Using two layers also ensures that they do not become freezer burnt when being stored for longer periods of time.
When making large batches of burritos, a good trick is to store several burritos either in a large freezer bag or plastic container. This makes it much easier to find your burritos and stops them from sinking to the bottom of your freezer and becoming lost among larger items of food.
Each night remove a burrito from the freezer and place it in the fridge to defrost overnight. The next morning all you have to do is pop your burrito in the oven and top with enchilada sauce, and you have a super quick and nutritious breakfast.
For an even quicker breakfast in the morning, you can try heating your burrito in the microwave for a few minutes on high until it is hot all of the way through and ready to eat.
What Other Types Of Breakfast Burrito Could You Make?
I load mine up with mushrooms as you can see! Eating the same breakfast every single morning can quickly become boring and one of the nice things about breakfast burritos is that you can really get creative with different fillings to keep your morning feeling fresh.
A great option to swap out the bacon for leftover meats that you have in the fridge, such as steak pieces or shredded chicken. This is an excellent way of using up leftovers that would otherwise be wasted.
You can use beans instead of bacon for a vegetarian burrito. You can also add extra vegetables to bulk out your burrito and make it even more nutritious. Things like sliced bell peppers and spinach work great in breakfast burritos.
