These are our FAVORITE Breakfast Burritos! They are loaded with homemade hashbrowns, peppers, bacon, eggs, salsa and cheese! They are make ahead and freezer friendly — perfect for busy weeknights.
I’m going to be completely honest — sometimes I feel a little strange calling these Breakfast Burritos.
Not because they aren’t a perfectly healthy breakfast, or because they’re not filled with all of your typical breakfast essentials, but because we pretty much never have them for breakfast.
Breakfast burritos are one of our favorite dinners! We make a big batch of filling and either keep it in the fridge for easy lunches and dinners for the week, or we fill the tortillas, wrap them in tin foil and throw in a freezer bag for an easy dinner when there’s no time to cook.
Eggs are the complete package. They’re nutritious (with 6 grams of protein and 14 important nutrients in a single egg!), last a long time in the fridge (so we buy dozens at a time), and cook quickly and easily.
And since today happens to be World Egg Day, I thought it was the perfect time to share one of our family’s favorites! I’m joining Canada’s Egg Farmers and other egg lovers to celebrate this simple and perfect food.
Eggs aren’t the only thing we’re celebrating here today, though. Canadian egg farmers (and egg farmers around the world!) work hard every day to bring us the best quality eggs, and they donate more than three million eggs each year to community food banks, school breakfast programs and charitable organizations. What an incredible gift!
I could eat these breakfast burritos every day and never tire of them. I love that you can load them up with whatever your family enjoys: breakfast sausage, ham, turkey, mushrooms, spinach, kale, swap the potatoes for sweet potatoes, or any number of other things you’ve got kicking around!
