Make-ahead breakfast burritos to keep in your freezer
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.
