Who would like an easy pull-out-of-the-freezer breakfast idea? And what if I told you this meal is loaded with classic favorites… scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, sautéed onions and peppers, and even diced potatoes?

Thankfully breakfast burritos not only contain all our breakfast favorites, but they are also ready in minutes!

Thankfully a friend brought the idea of breakfast burritos to my attention years ago.

Can you believe I had never heard of these, let alone tried one? And in the last few years I’ve finally found tortillas these taste dreamy in!

So many tortillas fall apart just trying to wrap up the breakfast burritos. That’s not the case with the gluten free Mission brand tortillas I prefer using. I find these in many big chain grocery stores and on Amazon.

Breakfast Burrito Flavor

Undoubtedly the flavors in these burritos are amazing!

The breakfast sausage brings the perfect amount of spice and heat to the dish. Add in fresh diced peppers, onion, and scrambled eggs. And don’t get me started on the delicious diced potatoes.

Place all that in a warm tortilla and your breakfast goals just went off the charts.

  • In large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and stir.
  • Once onion becomes translucent add in diced peppers. Stir occasionally until tender. Then add in scrambled eggs, hash browns, and ground sausage. Mix well.
  • If eating immediately, warm tortillas in the microwave and serve with the burrito mixture and top with garnishes.
  • If freezing to enjoy later allow the egg mixture to completely cool. Then heat tortillas and add the egg mixture. Roll them into a burrito, and wrap in aluminum foil. Place in a gallon size Ziploc bag and transfer to the freezer.
  • When ready to eat frozen breakfast burritos place in the microwave and heat for 2 minutes or until heated through.
  • Optional: garnish with salsa and dairy free sour cream.
  • Heating gluten free tortillas helps them to be more pliable and break or crumble which is common with some gluten free tortilla brands.

    I made these yesterday. I made a few different varieties. I made your recipe for me. My son only wanted eggs, bacon and cheese. My son has already eaten three of his!! And he is super picky! We both agree that next time we will put some hot sauce in there.

      Tracy– your burritos sound absolutely delicious. Hot sauce is such a great idea too. I’m so happy your son approved of these. Jill

    Do you cook the tortillas before using them?

    • Jill November 16, 2020 at 8:38 am

      Thanks for reaching out. I do heat the tortillas in the microwave. I’ll be sure to update the recipe to reflect that. Thanks again, Jill

    What is the best way to reheat these on a camping trip?

    • Jill July 21, 2020 at 5:50 pm

      Thanks for reaching out! The best way is to wrap each burrito in tin foil after you assemble it. Then transfer to the freezer or refrigerator. Once you’re ready to reheat these make sure they’re thawed and still in the tin foil. Place each burrito in a skillet or griddle over the campfire. Flip burritos over to heat evenly throughout while heating. I hope this helps. Enjoy your trip. Jill

    Do you have a gf/df tortilla brand that you can recommend?

    • Jill October 2, 2019 at 5:33 pm

      I’m so glad you asked. For this recipe we currently prefer the gluten and dairy free Mission tortillas found in Walmart and other large grocery store chains. They definitely hold up the best. If you have any suggestions please feel free to share. Happy eating, Jill
