Back To School Breakfast Burritos

Raise your hand if you are returning to school this week.

Wonderful!  Good luck.  Hope you aren't taking microbiology online.  It's impossible.  

Raise your hand if you are sending a loved one back to school this week.  

Mines up! 

Yes, yes.  This week my mister heads back to college for what is shaping up to be his final (fall) semester as an undergraduate college kid.  God willing and the creek don't rise, as always.

(Side bar:  that's one of my favorite phrases.  God willing and the creek don't rise.  Use it in conversation today.) 

In honor of his return to college I share with yous guys today some freezer breakfast burritos.  
 These guys are tasty and microwavable, a handheld dream in the form of breakfast.  I whipped these together while also whipping together dinner, meaning that they are quite simple.  

Looking forward to experimenting with them soon, adding things like hash browns and black beans.  Make them good and skanky.  Of course.  

For more information visit the post that inspired these guys over at the blawg Photographing My Life.  Her photos are way more appetizing and she, I'm guessing, has not forgotten how to use the aperture feature on her camera.  Thanks for posting, Lucy!  

Happy back to school dear friends!

Breakfast Burritos

12 oz breakfast sausage
6 eggs
2 tbl milk
salt and pepper
1 can of rotel, drained
1 cup of shredded Mexican cheese
10 fajita size flour tortillas

Cook the sausage.  Drain and set aside.  Wipe out that pan!

In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs, salt and pepper and milk.  Transfer the eggs to that same pan (that you've wiped out!) and scramble the eggs until done.  Add the rotel and the cheese, combine.  Return the sausage to the pan.  

Add 1/4 cup of sausage mixture to each flour tortilla.  Roll them up (burrito style!) and wrap them in foil.  Freeze them up!

Serving size 1 burrito
Points plus 7  

To cook a frozen burrito, remove the foil and wrap it up in a paper towel.  Cook it in the microwave for about a minute.  Let it sit for about thirty seconds.  Flip the old gal over and repeat.

  1. So glad I could inspire you! I'm making more tomorrow, and I like the idea of adding rotel. I might just have to try it!
