Recipes online for Frozen breakfast burritos abound, but I never much liked a lot of the ingredients (I'll pass on the beans in my breakfast burritos, thank you) and they were an EVENT. I am also not interested in six sinks stuffed with scrubbing, sir. My version is a one pot promise of delicious breakfast for 20. That's right, 20 meals in less than 2 hours. You can thank yourself every morning for making these. I would say they are cheap, which they can be, but the addition of lots of extras will tack on significant costs very quickly. But I do it occasionally, because, well, delicious breakfasts are what dreams are made of.
First, brown a pound of sausage in a large pot. I am using my large stainless stock pot for this, because I will need the room later.
next, I add one package of Potatoes O'Brien. They are the ones with peppers and onions mixed in, but you could use regular hash brown potatoes, or even tater tots, if you have them around. I like to put about 2 lbs in, sometimes more, sometimes a little less. Just add potatoes. If you want to use real potatoes, I recommend par-boiling and chopping the day before so that it takes less time to cook them.
Next, add them in to your sausage and heat through, or cook.
Next I crack in about 4 dozen eggs. It sounds like a lot, but trust me when I say it's just enough. You are feeding 20, remember? Dr. Mercola, I can't bring myself to eat them raw. Not the whites, but I can not freeze and reheat an over-easy egg, can I?
scramble the eggs in, stirring constantly, on medium-low until the eggs are cooked. Add salt or other seasonings to your liking. Please don't stir in crushed Doritos. Yes, I am talking to you, J.J. At this point, you could add shredded cheese if you like.
Now that you have a steaming pot of sausage and potato scramble, let it rest with the lid off for 20 minutes to cool. If you put the lid on, you will get condensation and watery eggs. You will not enjoy that. Unless you're weird.
now it's time to roll, baby. Use the big burrito size tortillas and fill those babies each with 2/3-1 cup of mixture, add jalapeños, cheese or chile if you want.
Wrap them in paper towels.
Re-use the plastic bags they came in to store the burritos.
Freeze. When you want to eat one, pull it out of the refrigerator and microwave until hot.
