Mornings are stress-free with these homemade freezer breakfast burritos

I'll admit I'm not a huge breakfast person mainly because I hate making breakfast. I'm still waking up, and the last thing I feel like doing first thing in the morning is dragging out things to cook. But even though I dislike cooking in the early morning, I still have a family to feed. I have been making homemade freezer breakfast burritos for a while now, and they really, truly come in more handy than I expected.

You can certainly buy prepared breakfast burritos at the grocery store, but let's face it — they aren't healthy. When you make your own, you can control the flavors and fill them full of good-for-your-body ingredients. These are great for kids on their way to school, husbands who have to scoot out the door quickly or busy moms with little ones to tend to.

A healthy, homemade breakfast is right at your fingertips. Just make them ahead of time, and stash them in the freezer for a quick morning meal on the go.

Yields 12

Prep time: 25 minutes | Cook time: 15 minutes | Total time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 6 whole organic eggs
  • 6 organic egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound all-natural turkey sausage, crumbled
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup black beans

  • 1 large handful fresh herbs, such as cilantro or parsley

Directions:

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. In a bowl, combine the whole eggs, egg whites and garlic powder, and season with salt and pepper. Mix well, and pour into the pan.
  3. Lightly cook the eggs for 5 minutes or until they are fluffy and no longer runny.

  7. Sprinkle each burrito with shredded cheese, and top with diced tomatoes and fresh cilantro or parsley.
  8. Roll up each tortilla burrito style as tightly as possible.
