Breakfast Burritos School Week Prep

For the last couple of months we’ve been making breakfast burritos on Sunday afternoon for the school week. My boys love them, they reheat in 1.5 minutes and they keep them full until lunch period. We double the recipe and put 10 in the fridge. I freeze the remaining 6. Then, after a couple of weeks we can take a week of and just use the ones in the fridge. The boys (and honey too!) have been taking turns helping each week.

Breakfast Burriots

I double this recipe:


  • 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups frozen cubed hash browns
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • ¼ cup yellow onion finely diced
  • 8 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup Mexican or monterey jack cheese shredded
  • 8 flour tortillas

Serving options

They will use salsa when eating at home. John usually takes his to go since he works out and has clubs almost every morning before school.

  • salsa
  • hot sauce
  • Sour cream
  • cilantro
  • green onions


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet.
  • Cook the hash browns until golden brown, remove from the pan onto paper towel-lined plate.
  • Add the sausage and onion to the skillet and cook until no pink remains, drain if necessary.
  • Add the cooked hash browns back to the pan.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs until lightly beaten.
  • Pour the wicked eggs into the skillet with the sausage and hashbrowns and cook until set, stirring frequently.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Spoon the cooked filling onto the bottom ⅓ of each tortilla.
  • Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Fold in the sides and then the ends over and rolling up as tightly as possible.
  • Serve immediately or freeze.

To freeze and reheat:

  • Wrap the burritos in foil or parchment paper.
  • Add to a freezer-safe resealable bag or container.
  • Freeze for up to 1 month.

To reheat:

  • Place 1 burrito on a microwave safe plate or dish and cook for 1.5 – 2 minutes or until heated through.
  • Let rest for 30 seconds before eating.

These are the tortillas we use.

Have a great week!!

  1. Would you ever consider compiling all of your families favorite dishes into a pdf/cookbook? I would be so excited to purchase something like that… the recipes you share are always delicious!

  2. Oooh – want to share pack lunch ideas, please?
    I have 9th & 11th grade boys. They end up eating off campus (waste of money!)

    When I google lunch ideas inevitably the ideas are for the elementary crowd (a box with sliced turkey, grapes, carrots, and crackers are not going to fill my guys up)

    When we meal prep Indian or ham & cheese they get tired of it.

    What to do? Whit have any good ideas? Help a mama out :)

    1. John either buys lunch at school or is home for lunch (he gets out every day before lunch this year). Whit takes a pretty standard lunch that isn’t too exciting. Water, meat and cheese sandwich, beef stick or protein bar, bag of grapes and some chips. If we have leftovers that are easy to package and taste good at room temp he sometimes opts for that.
