Breakfast is the best meal of the day! Seriously, when we start our day with a breakfast like this, we feel like we can challenge the world. We realize not everyone has time to prepare breakfast every morning, especially on those days when you just can’t seem to get out of bed. But it gets a lot easier when you know something delicious is waiting for you. This breakfast burrito recipe is made with simple ingredients, and you can definitely make them ahead of time and pop them in the freezer for later. Freezer Breakfast Burritos are a lifesaver on those busy mornings! You will love them!

Meat Choices:

We like to use ground sausage and shredded ham (or shredded ham for that matter) as meat in our breakfast burrito recipe. You can also replace them with:

  • Ground beef
  • ground turkey
  • chicken
  • Tofu
  • Plant-Based Meat Alternatives

Vegetable options:

You can choose to keep it simple like we did and use a little onion and red bell pepper. If you want to add more vegetables to your five daily meals, here are some suggestions:

  • more bell peppers (green, yellow, or orange)
  • mushroom
  • broccoli
  • tomato
  • spinach
  • zucchini

Sauce Variations:

We use mayonnaise for our special sauce, but you can also use:

  • sour cream
  • yogurt
  • greek yogurt

No matter what you decide to use as a base, it’s important to make the sauce first so the flavors have a chance to develop. You can also refrigerate it while you prep other ingredients!

Spice Level Options:

This breakfast burrito recipe is Mexican-inspired, so it has quite a few calories. Between the special sauce, green chiles, and other seasonings, they’re a spicy-lover’s dream. If you don’t like spicy food, you can omit the above ingredients, or use less!

Troubleshooting: Soggy Burrito

One of the things some cooks complain about when making this easy breakfast is that they end up soggy. We’ve found that when you follow the recipe instruction cards below, you shouldn’t have this problem! That said, if you do find that your fillings are starting to get a little mushy, you can try this trick: Let the fillings cool to room temperature before rolling them up. It helps prevent additional moisture from forming due to steam.

Advance and Freeze Instructions

This breakfast burrito recipe is the ultimate make-ahead dish. We recommend setting aside a few hours on the weekend to make them so you have some tasty breakfasts on hand for the week ahead. Just follow the recipe directions below and let your burritos cool completely. Wrap them each tightly in aluminum foil, place them in freezer-safe bags, and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Storage and Reheating Instructions:

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, remove the aluminum foil and wrap the burrito in a damp paper towel. Microwave in 30-second increments, or add a small amount of oil to a skillet and heat over medium-low heat until heated through. Alternatively, you can reheat in the air fryer at 350°F for 4 minutes, flipping halfway through. If you’re using frozen burritos, keep in mind that they take longer to heat up.
