This should be renamed "Perfect Hang-over Breakfast"! Which is the whole reason I tried it to begin with;) I used 1lb. Bob Evans sausage, 1lb. shredded hashbrowns (cooked well done & crispy), can of chilies, 2 dozen eggs, and about 2 cups of cheese. This amount made 10 8" burritos (whole wheat for DH) and 14 6" smaller ones for me. I decide to skip the bacon and they are still yummy. Even scaled down, it makes quite a bit & it's a reward to our friends in the morning for not drinking and driving the previous nite! thanks for this great one! PS: we microwaved for about 1 min & that was plenty.

New favorite breakfast grab-it-n-run treat! I'm not a breakfast person at all (unless cafe' au lait counts as food:):) but Husband needs his morning meal. I usually keep a quiche handy so he can microwave a slice---but after a while quiche got boring for him. The nice thing about these burritos is, you can make/freeze several varieties all at once, so it's not same-old-same-old every day. A favorite filling for him is what I call the "English breakfast" version, with sauteed mushrooms, chopped tomato, onions, and ham).Thumbs up, Lightly Toasted! (re: reviewers who found them to dry out in microwave---wrap in paper towel and sprinkle a bit of water on it. That should keep them nice and soft).

Well, I have mixed reviews on this one! I made a batch of these for our office & froze them overnight. I don't think they were too frozen by the time I nuked them at work the next morning. Everyone loved them. However, when we had the remainders over the weekend, they were difficult to unwrap after nuking, plus the tortillas were hard. I would suggest making the night before and refrigerating ONLY. They are good, though!
