I'm a creature of habit and routines meaning my morning routine is planned down to the minute (if I wake up at 6:17 and drink the coffee by 6:28..) and I really don't have time built in to make breakfast. Enter: Freezable Breakfast Burritos! Made a batch Sunday, wrapped them in foil and threw them in the freezer. Every morning I get up and microwave them for 2 minutes and enjoy (or when I was late yesterday I threw a frozen one in my bag and heated it up at work and it was fine!). You can put anything you want in these puppies, I used the usual suspects: beans, spinach, eggs, turkey.
Cook Time: 10 mins
Prep Time: 10 mins
- 7 eggs ($1.25)
- 1/2 lb lean ground turkey ($2.50)
- 3 handfuls of baby spinach, shredded ($1.00)
- 3/4 cup salsa ($1.00)
- 1 cup black beans ($.88)
7 Ezekiel Tortillas (the website has a store locator, I found mine in the freezer section at Whole Foods) $($3.00)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
Mix together the scrambled eggs, cooked turkey, and black beans. Scoop onto tortillas. Top the mixture with salsa and spinach. Fold the burritos Chipotle-style (tuck in the ends, fold the sides) and wrap in aluminum foil and throw them in the freezer! I like putting a scoop of Greek Yogurt on mine in the morning too. Adds a nice texture.
