Make Ahead/Freezable Breakfast Burritos

I'm in desperate need of really quick and on the go breakfasts that aren't over processed, sugary dyed food products. I tried out these breakfast burritos 2 weeks ago which yielded almost 20 burritos that I'm still reheating today. I'm a big fan.

Recipe and picture originally from Are We There Yet?
Breakfast Burritos


1 lb. Pork Sausage 
1 Pkg. Hash browns 
8 to 12 Large eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 pkg. shredded cheese 
salt and pepper 
1 to 2 pkg. flour tortillas 

Brown sausage - drain on a paper towel.

Cook hash browns in the same pan. (Definitely use a non-stick pan...)

While the hash browns are cooking whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.

Add browned sausage back to the pan with the cooked hash browns.

 Add the eggs to the sausage mixture and cook until the eggs are done, stirring gently.

After eggs are done lay a tortilla on counter.  Place egg mixture on tortilla.  Top with cheese.  Roll into a burrito.

Depending on how many eggs you use and how large you make each burrito,  will determine how many burritos you will end up with. 

To freeze:
Wrap the burritos in plastic wrap.

Then place the wrapped burritos in freezer zip-lock bags.

Place in freezer.

The blogger who originally posted this recipe gave specific heating instructions that don't work well for me or my microwave (I'm not sure where to place blame, haha) I end up warming the burrito up for a minute, cutting it in half and warming it up for another minute. 

Here are the instructions the originally post gave:
"When you are ready to eat - take the number of burritos you want out of the freezer (we usually only do two at a time) - unwrap  (yes, I am making a big deal about this - if you have wrapped the burritos in plastic wrap you MUST unwrap them!) - place in a paper towel and warm ONE of the burritos for 45 seconds - take out - warm the second ONE for 45 seconds.  Then put the first one back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat for second burrito. 

I know this method of warming sounds strange, but we have found to be able to heat the burrito all the way through, this is the best way."

Serve with salsa, sour cream, or plain.  Your choice.
