new family favorite! freezable breakfast burritos!

OK so Pintrest to the rescue again! My husband has been asking me to make him freezable breakfast burritos since forever. For some reason I could never get inspired enough to get in the kitchen and make them. Until I was browsing through pintrest and saw these. They are so delicious and freeze beautifully. The best part is you can customize them with whatever you want, veggies, meat, the possibilities are endless. Make a huge batch and label and freeze. In the morning all you have to do is microwave and enjoy. Perfect for busy mornings, or just whenever you want a burrito! which around here has been often. =) I decided on spinach, mushrooms, bacon n sausage. The original recipe is here at check it out and get inspired by her recipe and pictures like I was.I've also linked up @lifeaslofthouse food blog for their awesome weekend potluck! Another great place to get kitchen inspiration! Ok so my pics aren't as great but hey I was wearing a baby and entertaining  a toddler while cooking =) either way make em. freeze em. you will be happy.

You will need:
 10-12 eggs ( i used 10 since i had 10 tortillas)
whole wheat flour tortillas ( my nutritional addition)
veggies of choice, garlic, salt n pepper
sausage n bacon ( optional)
2-3 Yukon gold potatoes peeled n chopped
salsa ( any kind you like)
*hot sauce ( as much or as little as you like)

** cook bacon n sausage n set aside. scramble eggs n set aside.
Heat some oil in pan ( i used same pan as bacon n sausage for added flavor)
Cook potatoes till soft, then add onions mushrooms n spinach garlic n salt n pepper add hot sauce if you like
Once cooked set aside. Wrap tortillas in a damp towel n microwave for about a minute.
Set up an assembly line with eggs, veggie mixture, meat if using, cheese, salsa.
Pile each tortilla with eggs, veggie, meat, cheese, n salsa ( shutterbean recipe says go heavy on salsa to keep burritos moist when re heated. she is right, please do this)
Now roll , wrap in foil, label, freeze.
To reheat unwrap foil, then wrap burrito with paper towel n microwave 2-3 minutes ( I wrote this on the freezer bag to help a sleepy hubby in the morning =) Enjoy!
