These breakfast burritos are as much a part of Christmas for our family as gifts, trees or manger scenes. These are traditionally (according to us!) prepared a few days before, frozen and defrosted in time for Christmas Day brunch. They last for months and are great with a bunch of random toppings: I am of the “cranberry sauce only” school of thinking and my husband leans towards the “if-it-has-the-word-burrito-in-it-I-need-some-salsa” philosophy.
The prep and assembly is as much fun on the eating on these… grab a few friends and enjoy the process!
Classic Breakfast Burritos (approx 15)
- 1 lb hamburger (I use soy imitation)
- 1 lb sausage (I use soy imitation)
- 12 eggs, scrambled
- 2 pieces of celery, diced
- 1 1/2 onion, chopped finely
- 2 packs of large flour tortillas
- grated cheese
Cook the meat, drain the grease (if any), add the scrambled eggs/onion/celery. Lay a square of foil down, put a tortilla on it, scoop meat/egg mixture onto tortilla, sprinkle cheese on top, wrap/fold tortilla and wrap foil around finished burrito.
Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees (or longer, until center is hot). If they are frozen, defrost before baking!
