Breakfast Burritos (And The BEST Way To Freeze Them)

Every spring, we go from hoping that our chickens will provide enough eggs that we don’t have to buy any from the store to an egg explosion!  And, I always want to scream, “How do I turn these chickens off?”

Unfortunately, chickens don’t come with on and off switches!  Now, don’t get me wrong.  It’s a good problem to have, but until our normal egg customers get back into the habit of getting eggs from us, it can be overwhelming!  So,  I always try to take an afternoon, and make up a huge batch of breakfast burritos for the freezer.

Without these pre-made breakfast burritos, we would probably end up going through the drive-thru on mornings that we have to get out the door.  And, of course, it’s always nice to have them on hand when I just don’t feel like making breakfast or in the dead of winter when we’re missing our farm-fresh eggs!

By the way, if you would like an alternative to store-bought tortillas, check out the easy 4-ingredient recipe at the bottom of this post, or these recipes for whole wheat or sourdough tortillas!
