Freezable Breakfast Burrito Bites
- 8 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- cheddar cheese grated
- 3 flour tortillas
- salt and pepper to taste
- (you can really use whatever you want. I used spinach, bacon, ham, red peppers... but other ideas include: sausage, mushrooms, hash browns, onion, tomatoes, basil, zuchinni, squash, etc. You just have to make sure that the meat is precooked)
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, cut your tortillas into quarters
Grease a muffin pan and press a tortilla quarter into each spot. They don't have to be perfect, but do try to press the tortilla into the bottom to create a nice little cup. Set aside.
In a bowl, crack your 8 eggs and discard shells.
Add 1/4 cup milk and whisk well. You can add salt and pepper to taste. I leave it out because breakfast meats usually have salt. Set aside.
Finely chop all of your toppings. I used spinach, ham, bacon, and red peppers, but I have used a lot of other things from my list above and they are all delicious. That's the fun part. You can play around with it and make all kinds of combinations.
Sprinkle each tortilla cup with the toppings.
Pour egg mixture over the toppings.
Sprinkle cheese over each cup.
Bake, covered with foil, in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes or until egg is cooked through. I uncover mine for the last couple of minutes to make the tortilla edges crispy because I LOVE the flavor it gives it. My hubby likes them softer, so I leave them covered the whole time for him. You will have to play around with them to see what you like best.
These Breakfast Burrito Bites are so delicious. They are full of flavor, but they would also be good served with a little salsa or hot sauce. And really, they are also so much healthier than grabbing breakfast on the go anywhere else.
To freeze: Set them nicely upright in a single layer in a gallon ziploc bag and pop in the freezer. To eat, just remove desired amount from the bag, place on a plate and pop in the microwave. They warm up perfectly.
