Breakfast Burrito

Favorite Egg Breakfast Burritos

With two teen boys in the house, a hearty breakfast is more important than ever. We all need a meal packed with protein, carbohydrates and even a bit of fat to fuel our minds and bodies for whatever the day may bring. And trust me, no one wants to be hangry when you’re parenting, or to be parenting hangry teens.

So we start our days with these egg burritos. They’re a hit for everyone with savory and lean turkey sausage, melted cheese, fluffy eggs and the crunch of bell peppers. They’ll leave you feeling full and satisfied until lunchtime. And if you’re one of those people who digs breakfast for dinner (um, yes!) these egg burritos hit the spot when you need something quick and easy.

Meal Prep Breakfast Burritos

I can’t share a recipe like this without mentioning that these are a meal prep WIN. Double or even triple the recipe and roll up an extra 4-8 burritos to pop in the microwave when time is tight and you need a balanced morning meal.

Once you assemble and roll them, let them cool for 10-15 minutes. Wrap each one separately in cling wrap and store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 weeks. Unwrap and microwave for 2 minutes on 70% power when you’re ready to eat!
