Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it’s usually the one that catches us with little time to spare. These great make-ahead breakfast burritos are quick to heat and eat on the go.

Ingredients

2 dozen eggs
Salt, pepper, minced onions, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, chives, and anything else you like to mix into your eggs!
3/4 to 1 pound ham
3 cups shredded cheese, any variety
12 flour tortillas

Directions

Crack eggs into a large mixing bowl and beat lightly. Cook eggs in batches in a large non-stick skillet. I usually have good luck if I cook about 1/3 of the egg mixture at a time. Add 1/3 of the egg mixture to a preheated skillet and season liberally with your favorite spices. Scramble until firm. When done, set aside in a mixing bowl and repeat with remaining eggs.

Once all eggs are cooked, mix with ham and cheese.

Spoon about 1/2 cup of the ham and eggs mixture onto each flour tortilla. Wrap in a sheet of waxed paper. Freeze when completed.

When you’re ready to eat one, heat on “defrost” (aka power level 3) for three minutes in the microwave, then on high power for two additional minutes.

Notes

  • Fry some onions first then add them to the cooked eggs for even more flavor!
  • If you don’t have any leftover ham, deli meat works fine.
  • If you’re not a fan of ham, try cooked sausage or cooked bacon. Or, go meatless!
  • Add some spinach or broccoli if you’d like, especially if you skip the meat.
  • If you’d prefer to use sliced cheese, simply top each tortilla with a slice before rolling it up.

This is a super-simple and highly versatile breakfast recipe. It’s the perfect opportunity to customize, based on what you happen to have on hand and according to your family’s specific tastes. Enjoy!

Ingredients

2-3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 pound ham, cubed
6 slices bread, cubed
1 cup shredded cheese, any variety
spices to taste
6 eggs
2 cups milk

Directions

Place butter in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish, into a cold oven. Set oven to 350 degrees, and allow butter to melt in baking dish as oven preheats. When the butter is melted, remove it from the oven (but don’t turn the oven off.) Add half the bread cubes to the baking dish. Sprinkle the ham, cheese and spices over the top. Add the remaining bread cubes. In a large bowl, beat eggs lightly, then add milk. Pour over bread cubes in baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Notes

  • Substitute breakfast sausage, bacon, or anything you like. Just make sure it’s fully cooked first.
  • Or, go meatless!
  • This is a great way to use stale bread or buns. Substitute three hamburger or hot dog buns for the bread.
  • Use whatever spices you like. I use salt, pepper, minced onions, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, and chives.
  • Have some leftover vegetables? Add them! My favorite addition is spinach, but anything works!
