Freezer Breakfast Burritos

Make ahead and Freeze Breakfast Burritos.. Heck to the yeah.

Green Chile Beef Breakfast Burritos

Considering I’m having a baby in T minus 3 weeks (or sooner!), I wanted to prep a few items to keep in the freezer for those first few weeks home. People often bring dinners to new parents, but breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, so having something quick to grab is crucial.

I love the idea of having breakfast burritos in the freezer ready to pop in the microwave or oven the next morning. Talk about convenient! And the best part is you can completely tailor them to your personal preferences.. you could use grain free tortillas instead of flour.. leave out the cheese or sub in your favorite dairy free cheese.. etc, etc.

When people ask me what my biggest cravings have been during pregnancy, it’s honestly hard to think of anything, but the two things that come to mind are bacon, egg, and cheese bagels/tacos and bean and cheese burritos. Nothing too crazy, but sooooo good.

These Freezer friendly breakfast burritos are seriously perfect to keep around. I have about 15 of them in my freezer currently, and let me tell ya, I want to indulge every morning. BUT, the whole point is to have them on hand when I have a newborn babe to tend to, so I’m doing my best to refrain.

Hope you all are having a great week so far!
