Homemade Breakfast Burritos

I briefly mentioned in my breakfast sandwiches post a few weeks ago that you can use any extra egg to make breakfast burritos once your sandwiches are done, but in this post I’m going to show exactly how we make them.

For these burritos, I used Canadian bacon, egg beaters, red and yellow peppers, flour tortillas, and shredded sharp cheese. While making them, I also made breakfast sandwiches, using turkey sausage and American cheese.

Peppers go well with oregano so I first simply splashed a little bit of olive oil in our skillet and sautéed some diced peppers with some oregano until soft but crisp.

Make your breakfast sandwiches at this point.

When you’re ready to eat a burrito, unwrap from foil and place in a paper towel or cloth. Microwave on low-medium heat setting until hot throughout, turning once midway through.

Consider reusing the foil by folding it into itself and putting in a freezer bag to pull out the next time you make these burritos.

  1. I make batches of breakfast burritos too and freeze them for an easy breakfast. I haven’t done as much with breakfast sandwiches, but I like your idea of cutting the eggs to fit the sandwiches. Thanks for sharing your recipes!

    1. Thanks! :) I’ve just started making all these breakfast things for Stephen and Joshua recently. I made breakfast bagels yesterday. ^_^ I can’t eat any of it, lol. Ugh, not my thing at all. But they’re super easy to make and are saving money. Plus, I feel like a proper housewife “cooking” breakfast for the men. ;)


    1. Hi, Alyssa!! :) I let Atlanta Mom of Three go quite awhile ago, and it works out because I’m now a mom of four! I hope you’re well, I’ll have to come catch up on your blog, too. :)

      1. I took a looooooong break but I am not going anywhere for a while. Decided I need to set an example for my kids by doing what I love. Blogging for the immediate gratification and novel writing for the long haul 💗
