Start your day off right with an easy hand-held breakfast that’s full of flavor and protein to fuel your day. Breakfast burritos are a Tex-Mex favorite that can be made to suit any taste, diet, and budget.

Most breakfast burrito recipes can be made and frozen ahead of time to save time during the morning rush. Simply construct each burrito separately, cool, wrap in a paper towel and aluminum foil and freeze in a freezer-safe container or plastic bag. When you’re ready to eat, remove the aluminum foil and microwave for 2 minutes. How’s that for fast food?
