School started back in our area this morning and Sam headed out to our local public high school. I can’t believe I have a high schooler now. It just seems like yesterday we were picking out pencils and crayon boxes for preschool! Time sure does fly, doesn’t it.

But, as he and my husband pulled out of the driveway this morning (I think to save me from having an embarrassing crying jag in the drop-off line in front of his friends!), I headed back into the kitchen to prep these make-ahead breakfast burritos that are a family favorite. I thought I’d reshare them with you, too. You know, just in case your weekday mornings could use a little breakfast assistance, too!

Our mornings can be chaotic! Getting everyone up, dressed, fed, and off into the morning routines had me begging for a better plan recently. It seemed most of my time in the mornings was spent in the kitchen preparing breakfast for my family and feeling rushed in the process. I just didn’t have the warm and fuzzy feeling about our morning routine. We were all over the place.

Ever have one of those mornings?

Yeah, me too. More than I care to mention.

Finally, I decided to plan a little bit ahead.

I decided to go ahead and prepare my Breakfast Burritos that everyone in my family loves. After I cooked them, I let them cool and then wrapped them well and placed them into the freezer. Now, I’m all set for quick morning meals I just take out of the freezer, reheat and serve to my family on weekday mornings.

  1. The only time I tried a breakfast burrito is at McDonald’s! I’ll have to try and make yours next time!

  2. WHAT IS A BURRITO IS MADE OF PASTRY OR IS IT LIKE A PANCAKE ???

  3. I make a breakfast burrito similar to yours. Mine has onions, Ore-Ida Diced Potatoes, and green & hot salsa.
    The guys love these when they go to Northern Wisconsin deer hunting.

  4. What a great idea. You could also do a beef and bean version for the after-school snack. Frozen burritos were my go-to food when I got home from school. Although I’m sure the store bought version is not nearly as good as what we could put together.

  5. These are very good and very easy to make throw in the microwave warm em up and go. Thanks very much Robyn these are just what I needed for the morning rush
