Breakfast Foods for the Freezer
A few weeks ago I was blessed with several dozen farm fresh eggs. I decided it would be the perfect time to put some breakfast foods in the freezer. I made Mcmom’s Breakfast Sandwiches and Breakfast Burritos.
I used 2 dozen eggs, 3lbs sausage, cheddar cheese slices and 2 dozen English muffins for the sandwiches. You can find my tutorial on making these here: http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/mcmombreakfastsandwiches.htm
I made a little over 4 dozen breakfast burritos. I used 4 dozen eggs, 3lbs sausage and about 2 lbs of grated cheddar cheese. I scrambled the eggs, cooked the sausage and my tortillas and purchased the cheese already grated. …
A note on my tortillas… I purchase fresh tortillas that you cook up before using from Costco. The brand I use is Tortilla Land…
I did a bit of research on these and found that they are not available at all Costco locations. Mostly they are on the West Coast and a few other states. I like these tortillas because the ingredients are very simple (I think there are only 4 ingredients listed) and taste better than the type off the shelf. However if you cannot locate these then the ones off the shelf will work too.
I make the burritos by putting egg, sausage and cheese on a tortilla..
Wrapping them up..
And I lay them on a tray as I make them. These tortillas tend to stick together so I put a layer of plastic wrap between the rows as I make them.
When they are all assembled I wrap each tortilla in plastic wrap…
And put them in zip lock bags (which can be reused) and put them in the freezer..
To serve, we put them in the microwave to heat up. Takes about 1 ½ minutes. If you don’t have a microwave you can try heating them up in the oven. I have not done this so I don’t have specific directions on how to do it.. so just play around with a method that works for you.
