Protein-Packed Freezer Breakfast Burritos

I am not a morning person.  I have tried and it just doesn’t seem to work for me.  Something happens at night and I am transformed into this super-charged go-getter that can conquer a to-do list in 8 minutes flat (or at least it feels like 8 minutes until I look at the clock and see it is well past midnight).  Come the morning, I am tired, cranky, and in desperate need of coffee.  Sound familiar to anyone?

I’ve come to accept that mornings just aren’t my thing, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be a little bit easier.  One trick I’ve learned is to prepare a lot of breakfasts that can be made whenever you have time and then frozen for a quick morning meal.  These protein-packed freezer breakfast burritos are truly perfect; they’re healthy, tasty, and can be served in less than 2 minutes in the morning.

Step 6

To serve, place wrapped burritos on a microwave safe plate and heat for 1-2 minutes each in the microwave.  You can barely cook toaster pastries that fast and these are so much healthier.  Cheers to happier mornings!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.

      Thanks Ashley!

  • I have a recipe for this, but instead of beans I have crumbled bacon in mine and cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella… I freeze them, too and its SO easy! I am pinning yours to try as I love easy breakfasts to have on hand.

      I love these with bacon and cheddar as well! I chose to add the beans to these because I have trouble getting my daughter to eat meats and I like to add in extra protein to her meals. 🙂

  • I’m not a morning person either, I try but I have accepted that is not me! Your burritos ideas a great I need to try it :0)
