A breakfast burrito that has been cut on a diagonal is arranged with one piece stacked on top of the other for a pleasing presentation on a white, square, ceramic plate, with another identical plate in soft focus in the background beside two glasses of orange juice, and a small pyramid of six more filled tortillas wrapped in plastic, on a gray striped cloth surface with a dark brown background.

Grabbing a quick breakfast when you’re on the go is simple when you have easy make-ahead breakfast burritos in your freezer!


  • 1 lb breakfast sausage links
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 russet potato, peeled and diced
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 oz grated sharp cheddar cheese (about 1 cup packed)
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite salsa
  • 2 Tbsp of your favorite hot sauce
  • 12 8-inch flour tortillas


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until browned, about 1 minute on each side. Drain any fat and place sausage on a cutting board. Roughly chop the links. Set aside.
  2. Place skillet back over medium heat. Add peppers, onion, and potato to the pan. Cook until potatoes are soft, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove vegetables from the pan, and return skillet to the heat once again.
  3. Add eggs to skillet and season with salt and pepper. Whisk eggs together as they begin to cook so they are beaten. Cook, stirring often and scraping the bottom of the pan until scrambled and cooked through. Remove from heat. All all ingredients to cool completely before assembling.
  4. Place 12 flour tortillas flat on a clean work surface. Distribute eggs evenly onto the center of each. Repeat with sausage, and spoon the vegetable mixture on top. Sprinkle a tablespoon or two of cheese over each. Spoon hot sauce and salsa over the egg mixture on each.
  5. Fold the left and right sides of each tortilla toward the center. Starting at the side closest to you, begin to fold up the side, rolling as you go.
  6. Wrap each burrito tightly in plastic wrap. Please in a resealable zip-top freezer bag and lie flat in the freezer.
  7. When ready to eat, remove plastic wrap and place on a microwave-safe plate. Cover and heat in microwave for 40 seconds, turn over, and heat for another 40 seconds, or until heated through.
