Breakfast Burritos

breakfast burritosA yummy breakfast burrito was served from my freezer this morning. I’ve been making these burritos in different ways for many years. I love to have them on hand when we camp. I often make my breakfast freezer wraps with potatoes or breakfast bagels, but this time I chose a pepper and onion mixture. I love having healthy, hearty meals for my family in no time. My husband and I often take a burrito for lunch when there’s no dinner leftovers. I can pull one out of my freezer in the morning and it can thaw by lunch in my bag. Feel free to leave out the vegetables and label the healthier ones with a “V” on the wax paper with a sharpie. I typically make a few without veggies for my picky eaters :)

It’s burrito on the go for breakfast, lunch or dinner at my house.
