It's time to get cooking again.
Batch cooking, that is.
Does your family like Breakfast Burrito's?
Well, I'm gonna show you how to make them.
A LOT of them.
They taste better than fast food breakfasts.
Faster than a drive-thru.
And for less then $.45 each!
Yes.. that's less than 45 CENTS each!
With 4 boys who wake up hungry and leave for the bus early, these breakfast burrito's sure come in handy!
They grab one out of the freezer, pop it in the microwave, and in about one minute they have a hot, homemade breakfast.
Today I made 84 of these suckers!
This isn't so much a recipe as it is a technique.
I started out by browning & crumbling.
3 pounds of breakfast sausage. (I used our home-grown pork)
and some diced bell peppers and diced onions.
Then I added 6 dozen eggs.
Seasoned with salt and pepper, and scrambled it all together.
After the eggs were done cooking, I set up the rest of my ingredients for assembly.
This included, flour tortillas, cheese, and squares of aluminum foil.
I put one large scoop of the egg/sausage mixture in the center of a tortilla.
Topped it with cheese,
Rolled it up to form a burrito.
Then rolled the burrito up in foil, twisting the ends to seal.
Next, I tossed em in the freezer. And they were ready to feed my hungry morning crew.
All they need to do is pull one out of the freezer, unwrap the foil.
pop it in the microwave, and heat it for approx 1-2 min. that's it.
it couldn't be easier!
They freeze beautifully and will last in the freezer for more than two months!
I don't know how much longer because Mine have never lasted that long! ;)
You can add any ingredients your family likes.
I've often added hash brown potatoes as well and they turn out wonderful!
You could add Ham.
Play with different cheeses.
Or bacon. You name it! Add what you like.
Tomorrow I'll show you how I make 20 individual sized Pizza Meatloaves.
Including the recipe.
Go forth and Fill Those Freezers! :)
