I've been searching for some ideas for breakfast that are quick and easy and found some great ideas on Pinterest and on other recipe blogs. I absolutely love McDonald's breakfast burritos and when I started seeing recipes to make some for the freezer, I knew I had to try one. Also, in the spring of this year, we will welcome a new addition to our family. With a new baby and a very active toddler, recipes like this one will ensure that I have something quick and easy on hand for breakfast!! I adapted this recipe from one I found at Skinny Mom's Kitchen! She has more freezer recipes so please go and check out her site!! You won't be disappointed.
This recipe is fairly easy though it does take a little time. Hopefully, the next time will go a little faster with some prior experience!! LOL! Truly, the most time consuming part was preparing the burritos for the freezer. With that said, I now have 19 breakfast burritos in the freezer!! So I guess some extra time is worth those many mornings that I will now have a quick, easy, and tasty breakfast! I couldn't help thinking that this would be such a great recipe for older kids to help mom prepare for the freezer. I'm envisioning an assembly line which would make quick work of these little bundles!!
my salsa recipe) , 1 cup Mexican blend cheese, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. You will also need 16-20 tortillas. I used Mission brand tortillas and they were so very easy to work with!! If you are using a very chunky salsa, you may want to consider adding a little more. My salsa is more pureed and I knew more than a half a cup would be too much for this recipe. Don't forget to also have plenty of plastic wrap and foil around so that you can put these in the freezer!!
