Tips for Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos!

  • You can make them with turkey bacon, bacon or crumbled sausage whichever you prefer
  • Customize your veggies – almost any veggies work here.  I like to use the spinach because it is less work; no chopping and I can fold it into the eggs or put it in raw.
  • Gluten Free: use your favorite gluten free tortilla – Siete Foods makes a burrito size.  Note: you need to warm this up before you roll them.
  • Dairy free use your favorite dairy free cheese!
  • If you prefer breakfast sandwiches over wraps check out my make ahead breakfast sandwiches.
  • If you prefer less carbs check out my turkey bacon, egg and cheese muffins.

  • 10 eggs
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 6 burrito size tortillas
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese (cheddar or your favorite blend
  • 1/2 lb or 6-8 slices of turkey bacon alternative you can do crumbled sausage or regular bacon
  • 1 - 2 cups veggies optional - spinach or cooked onions and peppers


Cook Turkey Bacon - skip if using sausage

  • Preheat the oven to 425 and line a sheet pan with parchment paper for easy clean up
  • Lay out the bacon evenly on the sheet pan
  • Bake on the bottom rack for 10 minutes.
  • Rotate pan and move to the top rack and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes

Cook your Eggs + Sausage & Vegetables if Using

  • Heat a large skillet to medium/high heat. Then grease with olive oil or cooking spray. If using bacon skip to step 3.
  • If using onions and peppers or breakfast sausage: season with 1/4 tsp of salt and cook them first (can do all 3 together) in the heated skillet until lightly browned and vegetables are soft.
  • Crack 10 eggs into a medium size bowl and then salt and pepper (optional). Whisk until combined.
  • Pour eggs into the same heated pan and use a spatula to scramble until fully cooked. Set aside to cool.


  • Lay out a tortilla and scoop about 1/2 cup of scrambled eggs into the center, sprinkle with about 2 tbsp of cheese, crumble a slice of bacon and add veggies if you are using (see photo above). Note if you are using a gluten free tortilla you need to warm them before assembling - they cracked and fell apart if I tried to use them straight from the fridge.
  • Make your burritos by folding two sides in and then rolling.
  • Tightly wrap each burrito in Saran Wrap or tin foil, making sure there are no pockets of air. Then, write the name and date on each burrito for later!
  • Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Eat right away or place in a sealed Tupperware or ziplock. Refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze until you are ready to eat (up to 1 month).

To Reheat:

  • Unwrap and place on a microwave safe plate.
  • Place in the microwave for 2 minutes, flipping every minute. Every microwave is a little different so if it is not hot continue to heat for increments of 30 seconds.
