Freezer Breakfast Burritos

It seems like most of the time now a days I find myself only having one hand free and the other arm holding a sweet baby.  One handed pre-prepared breakfasts are great to have for mornings.  It makes life so much easier since I wake up starving and either have to eat quickly before feeding baby, or sometimes during, or right away after.  Its also super easy to grab for Corey as he is running out the door.  I've been making some muffins and even bagels, but needed some new ideas!  These were perfect because they couldn't have taken me more than 30 minutes to throw together and only take 2 minutes to heat up in the morning!  Just take them out of the freezer and pop them in the microwave.  I'm not going to lie, I think fresh eggs are definitely better than frozen ones, but these did the job and Corey said he didn't even notice a difference.

via Iowa Girl Eats
yields 8

6 strips bacon
12 eggs
salt & pepper
hot sauce, to taste
8 large (8″) flour tortillas
1/2 – 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 – 1/2 cup salsa

Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Drain on a paper towel, then chop into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.

Crack eggs into a large bowl, then season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Whisk until well beaten. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, then spray generously with non-stick spray (or just use a drizzle of olive oil like I do).  Pour in eggs and scramble until set, but are still glossy. Remove to a plate and set aside.

Lay tortillas on a clean, dry surface. Divide eggs and bacon between the tortillas, then top with salsa and cheese. Fold over the top of each tortilla, then fold in the sides, and continue rolling to form a burrito. Wrap individually in plastic wrap, then freeze in a large freezer bag.

To reheat: unwrap and discard plastic wrap, then wrap burrito in a paper towel. Microwave for 1 1/2-2 minutes, or until hot.
