Burrito is a rather young dish of Mexican cuisine. It comes from the days when Mexican traders transported the meal for tourists using donkeys, which are “burro” in Spanish.
Now the meal rolled in wheat flour tortilla is called burrito or taco, the latter is used by locals, while the former is spread all over the world. The filling can be whatever you like. But if we speak about the original recipe, these are beans and meat.

Freezer Breakfast Burrito Recipe
When being in hurry you think of what should be served for the breakfast this time, consider the simple way – warming the burritos frozen beforehand. This is the best decision when you are restricted with your schedule. You can choose almost any products for filling in accordance with your preferences, but we are offering the following recipe.
- 12 eggs
- 1 lb bulk sausage (cooked)
- 1/2 cup chunky salsa
- 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
- 24 piece flour tortillas
- Various vegetables as an option
Take a large skillet and crack eggs into it, scramble them and cook until done.
Add the chopped sausage and salsa to the eggs and mix the components.
Make tortillas flexible. For achieving that result you should warm it in microwave during 20-30 seconds.
Put 1/2 cup of the egg mixture on a tortilla and roll the filling closing the edges carefully.
Take a baking sheet, grease it slightly and place the all made burritos on it in a single layer and freeze them.
When they are frozen, you should take them away from the freezer and wrap burritos individually with plastic film or foil and return them to the freezer.
Prior to serving take the burritos, unwrap, take a paper towel and wrap it again in it.
Put them into the microwave and cook through carefully. It takes about 2 minutes.
You can also bake the burritos but do it in foil only, in the oven preheated to 350 degrees F. It will take you about ten minutes.
When you choose tortilla for this recipe, consider the various sizes of a sheet. For the conditions when you want to eat meal holding it in one hand and without losing filling, you should prefer the sheet in the 10- to 12-inch range. This is the large size. If you take a smaller one, your burrito will not be rich enough or the ingredients will run away when you eat it. Do not use corn tortillas for this purpose as far as it does not wrap in a proper way. For breakfast traditionally burrito is filled in with scrambled eggs, cheese, and sausage. You can make it wet covering with sauce.
