Freezer Meals- Part II {Breakfast/Lunch}

Last time I shared with you my freezer meal plan. We all have those nights that we just do not feel like cooking supper. We also all have those mornings where we just don't know what to eat for breakfast or what to take to work for lunch (at least I sure do). This post is dedicated to my freezer burritos! They are simple to make and are really filling for those busy mornings.

For breakfasts/lunches, I used two different burrito fillers. These can be mixed up however you like. You can add or take away any ingredient that you like or dislike. There is a lot of versatility with these.

Shopping list for breakfasts/lunches
40 tortillas
2 dozen eggs
30 oz. black beans
green onions
1 large jar of your favorite salsa
cheddar cheese
bacon
frozen shredded hashbrowns

My total cost: $21.52 = about 54 cents per meal!

Mexican Burritos (20 burritos)
This recipe is from here.
Scramble 1 dozen eggs, add 30 oz. cooked black beans and chopped green onions. Lay out 20 tortillas. Add shredded cheddar, salsa, and then the egg and bean mixture. Fold the tortillas into burritos and wrap in foil/wax paper. When reheating, remove wrapping and heat in microwave for 2 minutes on defrost and 1 minute on high.
Egg Burritos (20 burritos)
Cook center cut bacon (less fat than normal and alot better tasting than turkey), crumble, and set aside. Cook frozen hashbrowns until browned and set aside. Scramble 1 dozen eggs. Lay out 20 tortillas. Add shredded cheddar, salsa (if you like), the eggs, bacon crumbles, and hashbrowns. Fold the tortillas into burritos and wrap in foil/wax paper. When reheating, remove wrapping and heat in microwave for 2 minutes on defrost and 1 minute on high.

You can't beat 54 cents per meal! And these are so much more filling than cereal! I cooked these on the same thing that I did the suppers, but none of the ingredients are overlapping, so you could definitely cook just the burritos one afternoon and have 40 breakfasts or lunches to enjoy all month!
