Take some time to meal prep breakfast burritos that will save you so much time & give you a convenient breakfast ready to go in the morning. You can use a variety of different fillings and store them in your refrigerator or freezer. All you have to do is heat one up in the morning.
If you meal prep the breakfast burritos to be used that same week, store them in a covered airtight container. You can store them in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
To freeze, wrap each of the burritos very well. I like to wrap each burrito in a paper towel or parchments paper. Then, wrap the burrito in another layer, this time aluminum foil and place into a freezer ziplock bag. This will help to protect the burritos from freezer burn and the paper towel or parchment paper will help to absorb any excess condensation while freezing and thawing.
Freeze for up to 3 months.
To reheat, all you have to do is unwrap the burrito leaving only one layer of parchment paper/paper towel.
For the best results, thaw the burritos first. Take them out of the freezer and thaw overnight. However, you can take it straight out of the freezer and reheat, you’ll just need to do it longer. Microwave for about 3-6 minutes, depending on your microwave and if the burrito is thawed or frozen.
The texture will be best if you reheat the burritos in a skillet or airfryer. The tortilla gets golden and crisp on the outside and it’s so delicious.
To reheat on the stove, melt butter in a skillet, add the burritos and cook on low heat, covered, until golden brown on all sides and heated through in the center.
To reheat in the airfryer, brush the burritos with melted butter or oil on all sides and cook for 6-8 minutes, 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit. (Flip them over half way through.)
