Hey hey hey! Happy Friday! Is anyone else just extra excited for Friday now that school is back in session? Also, super excited that there is no school for all these fantabulous kiddos on Monday? YESSS! I like days off of school for my kids more than they do.
I’m going to make an honest little mom confession here. I can’t even seem to deal at all with school starting this year. Where did summer go? It just up and left! Summer….nobody said you could just leave, ok?!
I’m already not a morning person. Not even a little. I am fairly certain that my kids are completely terrified of me before I have coffee.
Before coffee mom looks a little like….well, do you guys watch The Walking Dead?
After coffee mom is like happy Glinda the good witch from Wizard of Oz.
…….anyway, breakfast burritos!
Taking a little break from baking with this recipe today. I promise you that I feed my kids more than just salty marshmallow cookies.
These are no frills, but really easy, and they just make mornings much more smooth for me!
I know there are many make ahead recipes out there for burritos. These just happen to be the favorite kind in our house. I’ve been making them up for years now, ever since my kids started school. Personally, I like that they are a decent substitute from all of the sugary cereals.
All you need to do is scramble up a dozen eggs in a big giant huge pan. Use nonstick spray so that you don’t hate your life when you have to wash said pan.
Cook your bacon how ever you darn well please. Sometimes I get a little “crazy” and use chopped ham or sausage, or even just veggies instead.
Cook your cute little tater tots according to package directions, and try not to eat them all and have to cook more like I did.
Basically, you can really make these your own.
I will say the eggs, cheese, and tater tots are ingredients that never get left out at our house. I’m afraid my children would start a riot if there were no taters in their burritos.
Once you have all of your ingredients cooked up, you can pile it all into your friendly tortilla and top with probably an obscene amount of cheese like I always do.
Roll the babies up, place them on your baking sheet, stick them in the freezer for an hour. Voila! Simplicity.
When you take them out of the freezer, you can individually wrap them in plastic wrap if you like. We go through these really really ridiculously quick in our house, so I just toss the frozen burritos right into a freezer baggie, back in the freezer, and then go on about my business.
My apologies for not having a whole set of frozen burritos to show you. We couldn’t help ourselves and had some of these for dinner the day I made them.
When I realized I hadn’t taken pictures for all of you fancy people yet, I asked the kids to cough the burritos up. They think I’m just “HILARIOUS” let me tell ya.
Make these this weekend, make next week easier! Enjoy!
