Cooking for a Crowd or Just Stocking Up

Over Father’s Day weekend, my husband and all the boys went on their annual Father’s Day Fly Fishing trip. I decided to make some breakfast burritos for Landon to take with him so they would have something quick to eat for breakfast if they wanted and wrapped them in tin foil so all they would need to do is heat them up in the fire.  This recipe is super easy and also works great for stocking up, just freeze the burritos once you are done and when you are ready to eat one, simply take it out of the tin foil and microwave for 1 ½ to 2 minutes. Here’s how I made them:


1 bag of frozen potatoes

12 eggs

½ c. of milk

Shredded cheese

1 lb of meat of your choice (I used some ham that I cubed from I spiral ham I made a few days before, but bacon, chorizo or sausage would all work great too!)

I left these next ingredients out because it was requested from the boys for me to do so. But if I were making these for me I would have also included:

2 bell peppers, diced

½ yellow onion, diced

Start by cooking your potatoes and meat. Then add the milk to your eggs and scramble them. If you are adding the bell peppers and onion, sauté them in a little oil and add them to your potatoes. Once everything is cooked, you can start assembling the burritos.

Tear off a square of tin foil and place your tortilla on top. I layered mine- potatoes, ham, eggs and then sprinkled the cheese on last.

Then just roll your tortilla up in the tin foil, you can place them in a freezer bag and freeze them to eat later, keep them in the fridge to use within the next few days or throw them in the oven on warm if you are serving them immediately.

Makes about 12 burritos (more or less depending on how you fill them).
