Egg, Bacon, and Cheese Breakfast Burritos

I will take a better picture of the breakfast burrito rolled up … in the morning when I feed my kiddos. For now, here is the recipe:

2 cups bacon bits (I used Costco’s precooked bacon bits)

2 dozen eggs

3/4 cup sour cream

1/2 cup cheddar cheese

2 cups cheddar cheese

salt and pepper

frozen uncooked tortillas (but, cooked, of course – I use Tortilla Land from Costco)



Even if you’re using precooked crumbled bacon, you’ll still want to brown it up and get it nice and crispy. Use a stock pot. Once the bacon bits are crispy, add the eggs and salt and pepper. Cook the eggs until they are just almost done. Add the sour cream and stir until it’s well incorporated. Add 1/2 cup cheese and stir. Remove from heat. DO NOT cook the eggs all the way if you are making these to freeze. They’re gonna be reheated and they’ll taste WAY better if the eggs aren’t cooked within an inch of their lives. ;) **The sour cream makes all the difference in the world in this recipe. Do not skip it!

You want the mixture to appear a little ‘wet’, like this:

Spoon about 1/2 cup of the mixture onto the center of each cooked tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese. Roll up, tucking in the sides. Store in a snack size bag like this:

And then in a gallon size freezer bag, like this:

To heat from frozen, microwave for 35 seconds on one side, flip it and then another 35 seconds. These usually heat up faster than the beef and bean ones.
