Homemade Frozen Breakfast Burritos

One of the best things I did while pregnant is make meals in large batches for the freezer so that I didn't have to cook much after the baby was born. Now that school is in and baseball tournaments that have us leaving the house much too early for my taste, I needed something ready-to-eat on hand.

I first got the idea from a book from my BFF. Kind of silly I never thought of it before: make a double batch and freeze one for another night (lightbulb on!).  Ironically, I came across this pin after I got the ingredients to make my own. Love her picture of her assembly line - check it out.

Warning: these took the better part of a morning to produce, or maybe it was the fussy baby and barking dog that slowed me down.

Flour tortillas (10)
Scrambled eggs (10)
1lb pork breakfast sausage
Shredded cheddar cheese

Using a large pan, prepare the ingredients in this order: brown the sausage, fry the hashbrowns, and scramble the eggs. Allow to cool before assembling burritos.  Roll burritos in wax paper and freeze!

In hindsight I would use extra large burrito size tortillas so the filling isn't so thick because they didn't reheat evenly. I would also make more than 10 burritos at a time because it seems like a lot of work for 2 1/2 family meals!  What do you think -- worth the effort?
