1 red bell pepper, sliced thin

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1 cup black beans, drained and dried

5 tbsp unsalted butter, divided

2 cups frozen shredded hash browns

1/2 pound thick-cut bacon

6 breakfast sausage links

12 large eggs

1 tbsp heavy cream (or whole milk)

salt

pepper

6 large flour tortillas (white or wheat)

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Optional Toppings

sour cream

salsa

guacamole


Instructions

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat

Add the onion, sauté 2-3 minutes

Add the red bell pepper, continue to sauté for 1-2 more minutes

Add the cherry tomatoes, sauté 2-3 more minutes

Remove vegetables from skillet and but in a medium-sized bowl

Add the black beans to the cooked vegetables, mix and set aside

Heat 4 tbsp of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat

Add the hash browns, season with salt and pepper to taste

Brown the hash browns and then push them to the side of the pan to make room in the skillet for the bacon and sausage

Add the bacon and sausage and cook until the bacon is crispy and the sausage links are browned cooked through

Remove the skillet from the burner and set aside

Crack the eggs into a medium sized bowl, whisk

Add the heavy cream to the eggs, whisk and season with salt and pepper to taste

Over low heat, melt the remaining tablespoon of butter

Once butter is melted add the egg mixture

Working with a wooden spatula, slowly cook the eggs, scraping the pan every few minutes until all the eggs are cooked and they are fluffy**

Once eggs are cooked set them aside and cool at least 10 minutes***

Stack the tortillas on a large plate with wet paper towels in between each

Microwave for 20 seconds****

Lay a tortilla on top of one of the damp paper towels

Place a generous amount of cheese in a long, thin pile on the half of the tortilla closest to you*****

Top with 2-3 tbsp of the vegetable mixture

Then a generous amount of hash browns, a sausage link and 1-2 slices of bacon

Top with 1/6 of the eggs and finish off with a little more cheese if desired

Roll the tortilla by first folding in the sides and then rolling the tortilla away from you

As you roll, continue to tuck in the sides to make sure all of the toppings are fully enclosed by the tortilla and nothing is falling out

Remove the paper towel and set the burrito aside for at least 10 minutes

Repeat with remaining tortillas

Once the tortillas no longer feel damp on the outside from the paper towel, wrap each burrito tightly in the plastic wrap and then wrap it again in a piece of aluminum foil

Place the prepped burritos in a large plastic ziplock bag and label with “breakfast burritos” and the date

Place the burritos in the freezer

Burritos will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer

When you want to eat one remove it from the freezer

There are 3 options for heating your burrito (see post for more info)

Optional Toppings

These burritos are best enjoyed dipped into sour cream, salsa or guacamole for added flavor.

Notes

*Depending on your confidence in the kitchen you can have multiple burners going and make the vegetables, hash browns and meat and the eggs all at the same time to save time.

**Cooking the eggs this way, very slowly over low heat is time consuming, but it will make for fluffier, more delicious eggs

***Don’t add any ingredient to the tortilla when it is hot, this will make your tortillas soggy

****The heat along with the moisture from the paper towels will help soften the tortillas and make rolling easier

*****The fillings should be about halfway between the middle of the tortilla and the edge to help with rolling and making sure the toppings stay in the tortilla
