Breakfast Burritos/Breakfast Tacos (How to make your own Sonic Jr. Breakfast Burrito’s):

Call them what you want, they are fast, cheap and easy. Simply cook the parts, combine and assemble. Load them up into the freezer voila, a home cooked breakfast a the drop of a hat, just minutes away in the microwave.

It’s really easy, I made a batch of 60 breakfast burritos, but I really had enough mix to make about 100 of them, I just ran out of tortilla’s. Total cost with everything ran me just under 18 dollars, so for the 60 pieces I made, they ran about 30 cents a piece. I bagged them up 2 to a baggie, so in the end, it’s breakfast for 60 cents.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 to 3 pounds of breakfast sausage (I bought 2 tubes of mild)
  • 2.5 dozen eggs
  • 2 pounds of hashbrowns
  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes
  • 60-100 tortilla’s
  • salsa to top it if desired
 

Here’s how:

Step 1: Brown the breakfast sausage. I used my roaster since my oven was already hot from cooking dinner. Breakfast sausage can get kind of greasy, so I drained it and rinsed well under hot water to degrease it.

For the eggs I just cooked them in a skillet and stirred and chopped feverishly. For the hashbrowns I just dumped them on 2 cookie sheets and baked them on the rack under the sausage. I didn’t get pics of this, but use your imagination… I am sure you have seen scrambled eggs before, LOL.

Step 3: Once the sausage is cooked and drained, dump your eggs, hashbrowns and if so desired diced tomatoes on top.

Other toppings you could add in:

  • Green Peppers
  • Red Peppers
  • Celery
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • You name it!

As mentioned, with the ingredients, I could have made 100 if I had more tortillas, so we at a couple meals of breakfast burgers to use it up in the meantime. YUMMY. These really remind me of the Jr. Breakfast Burrito’s at Sonic, except theirs are a buck and mine are 30 cents. Take that Sonic!

Hi, I'm Shane, aka Hungry Dad. I'm as busy as everyone these days and my two boys just add to that. I hate when we have to eat out and love to come home and have a home cooked meal with the family after a rough day. But who has the time, right? Well, with a lot of trial and error we found a bunch of great, easy to make recipes that can be made in bulk and freeze well. This means we can have home cookin' in about the same time as making a box of mac and cheese. Convenient and yummy!

    How long do you reheat them once frozen?

      It’s hard to give an exact time, it depends on how big you make them, if they are on a plate or just a napkin, how big your microwave is and how many at once.

      Generally, for the ones I make, I throw 2 on a paper towel and nuke them for 60s, turn and another 30s. But again, it just depends on a lot of factors. Like all freezer cooking, it really comes down to trying it to get the hang of it and adding a little more time if needed. These are a staple in our house, hope you enjoy them too.
