Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos are perfect for busy mornings! With this freezer breakfast burritos recipe, you can make your own at home. Store them in the freezer, then grab and go! They’re easy to make, filled with delicious ingredients, and great for meal prep.
What’s in Breakfast Burritos?
Inspired by our favorite Mexican flavors, these are packed with eggs, ham, sausage, hashbrowns, and cheese, then seasoned with taco seasoning. Every bite is delicious, and they are plenty filling.
- Olive Oil: Helps the hashbrowns cook without burning. You can use canola, vegetable, or avocado oil instead.
- Hashbrowns: Frozen hashbrowns are an easy hack for quick burritos.
- Diced Ham: Adds salty, rich flavor and protein.
- Crumbled Sausage: Adds fat and flavor. Feel free to swap this out for any ground meat.
- Eggs: Form the base of this burrito.
- Cilantro: Add fresh flavor. You can swap it for parsley if you’re not a fan.
- Taco Seasoning: Cheesy taco seasoning pumps up the cheesy flavor. You can use regular taco seasoning if you prefer.
- Mexican Blend Cheese: Adds classic Mexican flair. You can use Monterey jack, pepper jack, or mozzarella instead.
- Tortillas: I like flour tortillas, but wheat, corn, or cassava also work.
These are the perfect freezer-friendly breakfast. I always have a few on hand!
Variations on Frozen Breakfast Burritos
There are so many ways to change up these burritos. You can swap out the meat option (or leave it out completely), add your favorite seasonings and herbs, or add some veggies (like diced bell pepper). Feel free to swap whole eggs for egg whites or flour tortillas for wheat or cassava tortillas.
It’s easy to change up the ingredients, so they can be as healthy as you want them to be. Use egg whites only, add veggies, leave out the potatoes, use ground turkey… there are plenty of options to make changes for your dietary preferences.
Unfrozen, the make ahead breakfast burritos will keep for a day or two in the fridge. Or you can freeze them for up to 2 weeks. They will last a little bit longer than that, but they’re best within 2 weeks.
Place the bulk of the filling in the center of the tortillas in a long/rectangular shape. Fold in the two “short” ends over the filling. Holding those down, grab one of the remaining sides and roll it over the filling. Finish rolling, and everything should be tucked in and neat.
How to Store Freezer Breakfast Burritos
Store leftover make ahead breakfast burritos in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
How to Freeze and Reheat Meal Prep Breakfast Burritos
Once you have made the breakfast burritos, let them cool slightly and wrap each one tightly in aluminum foil (a double layer is ideal). Then place them in a freezer-safe bag to keep them all together, and freeze for up to 2 weeks That’s it!
When ready to serve, you can heat up the burritos straight from frozen. You can cook them on a grill pan until heated through, or microwave for a super quick meal.
If microwaving, heat on 30% for 1 minute and 30 seconds, and then on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. Microwaves vary so check after minute if you think necessary.
What to Serve with Mexican Breakfast Burritos
These make ahead breakfast burritos are filled with so many amazing ingredients (eggs, potatoes, sausage, cheese), so they are plenty filling on their own. They’re truly a grab-and-go meal! For a little extra, try serving them with pancake mix muffins, banana muffins, granola, or a yogurt parfait.
They’re also delicious with some fresh seasonal fruit or a refreshing breakfast drink, like a pineapple matcha, pink drink, orange ginger shot, or apple crisp macchiato.
I love just about any kind of frozen burritos but have never made my own. I’ll have to try these, Becky!
Thanks so much Andi!
What an awesome idea! These would be perfect for camping or to bring on vacation for quick breakfasts! Love this!
Thanks so much Kelley!
I absolutely need to make these and stock the freezer before school starts. Would make mornings so much easier!
Yes!!! Thanks for stopping by Melanie :)
I love frozen breakfast burritos.. the kind you buy. I’m not sure why but I just LOVE THEM! These look so much better then the freezer kind. DELISH!
I love those too!! Thanks for stopping by Kelley!
Did you grill the tortillas first to get the grill marks?
Looking forward to making these so I can have something a little different than the frittatas I make for weekday mornings.
After I stuffed them I grilled them just a tad to get the grill marks and re-heat them all the way through. It’s optional of course but kind of fun :)
This sounds good I have made them before and put broccoli in them I know it sounds weird but it taste great.
That actually sounds delicious! I used to love this broccoli and chicken wrap at a restaurant when I lived in Fl. I can see that it would be great in breakfast burritos too! Thanks for stopping by!
Our summer schedule has been super hectic so this is perfect for our busy mornings! I didn’t even have time to eat breakfast today, wish I had one of these burritos!
I know how you feel!! Thanks for stopping by Sara!
So funny you mention this. My husband gets creeped out by frozen/leftover egg. I explained there is nothing wrong with it and most restaurants do it. The other day he ate a leftover egg wrap my daughter did not eat that he put in the fridge and said that he actually thought the egg tasted better! Saves us time making them all at once and freezing them for future meals :)
I love winning them over subtly haha!! Thanks for stopping by Kacey :)
I love breakfast burritos!! I was testing out some for the blog this morning. I like them too because you can make them ahead and freeze them and then when you need a quick breakfast just pull one out and reheat!! Love your flavor combo you have in yours!
Thanks so much Malinda!
I tried making breakfast burritos for the freezer once before and they were a little disappointing, kind of soggy when reheated. I need to try again though cause it’s a nice thing to have in the freezer, and my husband loves them for taking on the way to work in the morning. These ones look fantastic! Pinned!
I find when I do the defrost first it really helps with the soggy factor. Hope you love them Stacey!
