Freezable breakfast burritos

Try this freezer-friendly burrito recipe for an easy meal on busy mornings that everyone will enjoy. Loaded with eggs, cheese and more for the perfect breakfast on the go or at home.



  • 10 large high quality eggs
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup basil
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 sweet potato, diced and microwaved until soft
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 6 whole wheat tortillas


  1. In a large bowl crack in the 10 eggs and scramble. At the same time heat a lightly oiled large pan over medium-high heat and toss in the spinach, basil, and green onion. Sauté for 30 seconds and then add in the eggs. Be sure to constantly move the eggs with a spatula until they are scrambled and cooked. Once cooked, remove from pan and allow to cool on side plate.
  2. Using the same pan, add a bit of oil and then sauté the red peppers, red onions, and sweet potatoes. Add garlic powder and salt. Sauté until sweet potatoes are soft and then remove from the heat.
  3. Layer the ingredients on your whole wheat tortillas. Fold the burrito tightly and allow it to fully cool. Check out the link above to a video on how to properly roll a burrito.
  4. Once you have all the burritos folded, lay the burritos seam side down on a ripping hot pan until the tortilla is browned, about 30 seconds per side.
  5. Here is a key part, allow the burritos to fully cool on a cooling rack before wrapping them in parchment paper. Then place all six burritos gently into a large freeze bag and pop them in the freezer.
  6. Now when you want to eat the burritos there are two ways you can do this. One is to pop the frozen burrito into the microwave for around three minutes. Alternatively, you can remove the burrito from the freezer the night before and place it in the fridge. The next morning you can pop the burrito onto a hot pan and cook until warmed through. Enjoy!
