So excited about today’s breakfast burrito. It’s not often that I share a savory breakfast recipe. Mostly because when I cook up breakfast for the family it’s usually something sweet with a side of eggs and toast. Nothing too fancy.

But sometimes I love to switch it up, and today, I’m switching it up.

Make ahead, freezer-friendly, breakfast burritos for back-to-school! Promise, they’re easy AND delicious.

The details

I wanted these to be easy to make, so I kept the steps and ingredients minimal. There’s really nothing fancy here!

Start with the eggs. Scramble them up with everything bagel spice, salt, and pepper. I love to cook them in a skillet with a pat of butter. Then plenty of cheese is added to the mix, I like to use cheddar and creamy fontina cheese. The combo is so delicious!

I finish the eggs with a couple of handfuls of fresh spinach. Again, nothing too fancy – just delicious, especially with the everything bagel spice and cheese. Yum!

The rest is basically assembly. You’ll need some large flour tortillas (I always use my homemade ones), leftover potatoes, more cheese, crispy bacon, and avocado. Oh, and basil pesto too, of course!

Wrap everything up the tortillas with the warm eggs, then tuck the burritos into a piece of foil. At this point, you can pause and keep the burritos in the fridge for 1-2 days or freeze them.

If you’re freezing the burritos, I recommend omitting the avocado. Then when you’re ready to serve, just add the avocado alongside the burrito instead.

I toast the burritos in the oven to get the cheese all melty, then slice, eat and enjoy!

These will be really nice for busy weekday mornings this fall as we buckle down and head into the busy fall season. I’m excited to have a few in the freezer for super fast breakfast, lunches, and even dinners. This really is one of those magical recipes that’s great any time of day!

Who doesn’t love a cheesy bacon filled burrito!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
    2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, everything spice, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.
    3. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Pour in the eggs and cook, undisturbed, until beginning to set on the bottom, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle on the cheddar. Using a spatula, lift up the edges of the eggs and let the uncooked eggs run underneath. Scatter the spinach over top, and cook another minute. Remove from the heat.
    4. Place one tortilla at a time in the microwave for 20 seconds. Spread on a layer of pesto, then add the eggs, potatoes, cheese, avocado, and bacon. Fold the tortilla over the ingredients. Fold sides and ends of tortillas over filling and roll forward. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Wrap the burritos in foil.
    5. Wrap the burritos in foil and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese melts. Unwrap the foil, eat, and enjoy!

Notes

To Make Ahead and Freeze: Omit the avocado. Wrap each burrito tightly in foil and store in freezer bags. To thaw, remove the foil and thaw them in the microwave on power level high for 60-90 seconds. Each microwave differs though. Serve with avocado.

    This recipe is officially my favorite breakfast of all time. It’s so nice to be able to freeze these so you can just microwave them for a quick and delicious weekday meal. I’ve spoiled my fiance with these because he’s convinced there’s not a better breakfast — and I can’t disagree! 10/10 recommend making these and being sure to keep a stash in your freezer.

    1. Hey Lindsey,
      Happy Friday!! Thanks a lot for trying this recipe out, I am so glad to hear it was enjoyed! Have a great weekend:)

    1. Hi Heather,
      Wonderful!! Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! xT

  2. Is it possible to make ahead of time (~36 hrs) and not freeze and just refrigerate? Just don’t want to have to omit the avos!!

    1. Hi Jen,
      Sure, that would be fine for you to do, although your avocados will definitely be brown by then:) Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

    1. Hi Courtney,
      Happy Sunday!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for sharing your review and making it! xxT

    Super easy and so delicious like you said! Love the way you can pull flavors together that I normally wouldn’t think would be so good together ? if you freeze, after you put in the microwave do they need to go in the oven or is that considered them cooking in the microwave?

    1. Hey Ashley,
      Happy Sunday!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for sharing your review and making it! I would pop them in the oven after microwaving:) xxT

  4. These look amazing! Do you have a favorite recipe for making the potatoes shown? Do they have seasoning on them? Looks so yummy!

  5. Made these last night for dinner and then ate them again for breakfast this morning. Per your favorite description… SO DELICIOUS? . And super easy.

    1. Hey Julie,
      Wonderful! I love to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks for trying it out! Have a great weekend:)

    I’m expecting my second baby soon so I definitely plan to make these ahead of time and freeze for when baby gets here! However unfortunately my husband isn’t the biggest fan of pesto (though i love it!) What other sauce/spread do you suggest replacing that with? Thanks! 🙂

    1. Hey Rachel,
      Congrats on your newest addition! These are so great because you can really use any sauces you like…hot sauce would be great, bitchin’ sauce, or even a salsa that he enjoys would all be good options! Let me know if you have any other questions! xx

  7. Ohhhh these look absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to make them! Quick question on the make ahead/freeze… after you thaw them in the microwave, should they go into the oven?

    1. Hi Diana,

      If you have turkey bacon in your local shops, that might be a nice alternative. Otherwise, sliced turkey or even browned mushrooms would be delicious.

    2. Hi Diana,
      Sure, so many options-skip it, use turkey bacon, additional veggies would all work for you! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  8. Is ALL the cheddar used in Instruction #4 (Sprinkle on the CHEDDAR) and ALL the fontina used in Instruction #4 (…then add the eggs, potatoes, CHEESE, avocado, and bacon.)?

    1. Hi Diane,
      The cheddar is used in step 3 and then fontina is used in step 4. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love this recipe! xx

  9. Yum! A local cafe by me makes the best cheesy pesto potato burritos (with scrambled eggs) and it’s the best flavor combo. I’ll have to try making these at home.

  10. These are amazing!!! I love the eggs with the Everything bagel seasoning and cheese. What a delicious breakfast

    1. Hey Jennifer,
      Happy Wednesday! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I love to hear that it was tasty! xTieghan
