Great for that run in the morning breakfast. You can also take frozen burritos with you when going camping. Just place the bag of frozen burritos into the ice chest, and by the time you're ready for breakfast the first morning, the burritos are fully thawed. Then simply reheat them in a large skillet over the campstove or fire grate.

These are a great "on the run" breakfast. Take out of the freezer in the am and by the time I'm at work they are thawed and ready for the microwave. Being diabetic these have been a life-saver on hectic mornings!
I have made this recipe about 6-7 times now, probably should review it. Takes about an hour start to finish to make anywhere from 12-16 burritos, depending on how big my tortillas are. My husband loves these for breakfast, has them almost every day for breakfast. Have made this exact recipe with 2-3 x the salsa, allowing the moisture to cook out before rolling, and also a veggie chorizo, potato and salsa version. Love it, only problem is now hubby expectes them for breakfast each am, I can never stop making them!
i made these tonight and everybody inhaled it. love how versatile it is. i only used 7 eggs and 1 pound of sausage and found that was perfect for 6 people.
