As most of you know, breakfast is a big deal around here. We have our own chickens who give us a ton of eggs. I’ve had the job of coming up with new recipes to use them up! We’ve been making breakfast burritos for years, but I’ve grown tired of the old recipe I was using.
Out with the old and in with the new. To jazz these burritos up, I found some ingredients that make your taste buds dance! First of all, I knew I needed to make a sauce for these special burritos. A sauce that says, BRING THE FLAVOR! I did just that. I can’t wait for you to try it!

I’m not really big on whole writing an essay on a recipe post thing. You came here for a recipe not a novel! However, there are some search engines that think it’s funny to put me so low on the totem pole so that I don’t even register. Because of stupid things like word count. Yes, even on recipe posts!
I feel like it’s ridiculous to write a novel every time I want to post a recipe. I also feel so irritated to have to filter through a whole bunch of nonsense when all I want is the recipe on a site! So I’m putting my novel after the recipe to hopefully help you be a little less irritated with me!
So here goes! I’m going to try to talk a little bit about burritos! Yay!
Did you know, you can eat burritos anytime of the day, they’re not just for breakfast! Another fun fact, you can basically fill them with any of your favorite food items.

Don’t forget your condiments, like mayo, mustard, ketchup, hot sauce, taco sauce or other dressings! One of my boy’s favorite things to add to their breakfast burritos is salsa! I showed them this trick, and well it kinda stuck!
Did you know that you can freeze burritos? We freeze our Breakfast burritos (without the sauce recipe here) and the kids can heat them up all by themselves! If they’re old enough to use the oven of course, since you really need to reheat them in the oven.
One of the downsides of freezing them is how long it takes to reheat them! It takes about 40 minutes! Sometimes I wish I had a toaster oven because I hate heating up a giant oven for a couple of small burritos!
To freeze breakfast burritos leave off the condiments or other wet ingredients, and wrap them in tin foil, then freeze them. When you’re ready to Reheat them turn the oven on to 425ºF and cook them for about 40 minutes turning them after the first 20 minutes.
I don’t suggest refrigerating entire burritos, especially if they have condiments or other wet ingredients on them.
Instead, package each food item separately and refrigerate those items. Except for the tortilla of course! When you’re ready, microwave the ingredients such as the meat and eggs until they’re brought up to proper temperature and then prepare each burrito accordingly.
It’s also a good idea to wrap up flour tortillas in a flour sack or similar material and microwave for about one minute. Warming them up helps them to be a little more flexible, and are therefore more easy to roll up!
I might be weird for this but I like cold cheese against hot foods. So I wouldn’t warm up my cheese or melt it on top of the meat. However, you totally can do that if that’s the way you like it.
More Breakfast Recipes That Might Suit Your Fancy!
I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m a crazy chicken lady! Right now it’s April and we’re currently getting almost 20 eggs a day. Needless to say, we eat a lot of eggs! We eat eggs scrambled, in burritos, fried, in frittatas (egg casserole usually with vegetable and sometimes meat). The boys like omelets, but I’m not a huge fan. In the spring and summer, I usually cook close to a hundred eggs a week. I hard-boil the eggs, then I give half to the chickens and half get eaten by the human garbage disposals, I mean teenage boys.
Giving my chickens provides them some extra nutrition that they need to make more eggs. The most important being protein and calcium.
Feeding 3 teenage mutant ninja, er…uh..boys can be a giant feat! If you’re curious how we feed children who can eat an entire pizza each check out how to feed hungry kids on a budget!
Another big breakfast item in our house is yogurt. I’ve been making yogurt in the Instant Pot for a while now. It not only saves me money, but it tastes so amazing! Especially, when I add my homemade in the Instant Pot Vanilla Extract!
Oatmeal and grits are a couple more favorites in this house. Do you like them? We use real maple syrup on our oatmeal, and not that high-fructose syrup crap. Oh and we use real butter on our grits! Yum!
