Freezer breakfast foods are a must in my house and breakfast burritos top the list as one of our favorites. Since these are in the freezer and ready to eat my husband and I actual get to sit and enjoy breakfast together before we part for the day. Doesn’t that sound romantic? Haha seriously though it is so nice to just have breakfast ready.
The last few months we have been eating the same breakfast burrito recipe. Although it is very good I didn’t want us to get bored so I decided to venture out and test some new flavor combinations.
The first one I came up with was inspired by ingredients my husband sometimes likes to get in his omelets when we go out to breakfast. Well, that is not entirely true; the spinach was my idea. I just happen to have some leftover in the refrigerator Can’t let food go to waste now can we?
This freezer burrito can easily be made vegetarian by removing the bacon. However, unless I want to see a grown man cry, in my house the bacon must stay.
