Of course, you can put anything you want in your burritos. I like mine packed with lots of protein and veggies. It makes me feel like I’m doing a good job as Mom.

 

 

However, if you wish to minimize expense you could certainly add cooked rice and beans because they make a complete protein. I do the low carb thing but my kids would love that!

 

For an extra couple of dollars, or 25 cents per burrito, you can swap in whole wheat or low carb tortillas for a nutritional boost.

Diva Tip – cooling the ingredients gradually in the fridge and freezing already cold (rather than sticking them right in the freezer) will make the taste and texture of your finished product SO MUCH BETTER! It has to do with ice crystals destroying structure and reheating like mush and science. Just trust me.

 

I find it easiest to “assembly line” the burrito making process.

 

Lay out ten pieces of waxed paper and lay a tortilla on each piece. Place even amounts of the sausage and egg mixture on each tortilla and sprinkle with cheese. Wrap burrito style and then wrap the burrito in the waxed paper. Next wrap each burrito in foil then place in a zip top freezer bag in the freezer for storage.

 

When you’re ready to heat, and eat, simply unwrap one frozen burrito and wrap in a moistened paper towel. Place burrito on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 90 seconds to two and a half minutes depending on the wattage of your microwave.
