When I make Egg Burritos,  I like to make a few extras to throw in the freezer!

The last time I prepared these burritos I needed 40 of them.  My husband was participating in a family fishing tournament and he needed to provide breakfast for 27 fishermen!  I came up with the idea of preparing the egg burritos and freezing them so it would be easy to transport them and then simply reheat them in the oven!

Now you know why I have pictures of mounds of burritos!  I made piles and piles that day.  We also wrapped each burrito in aluminum foil to make it easy to prepare them in the oven!

I am including the recipe for 40 Breakfast Burritos –  for anyone who is as crazy as I am!

40 Breakfast Burritos

3 large onions, diced
6 green peppers, diced
6-10 jalapeños, diced
40 sliced of cooked bacon, crumbled
60 eggs
4 cups of milk
3 lbs grated cheese

Prepare the above ingredients in the same manner as the recipe for a mere 4 burritos!

Because I was making such large quantities and because I am very concerned about food safety; I immediately cooled everything as I prepared it.  Starting with the bacon, once it was crumbled I refrigerated it, same thing with the pepper mixture and the grated cheese.  The last step was scrambling the eggs.  I prepared half the scrambled eggs at a time.  I cooled the cooked eggs in a metal bowl that I placed in an ice bath.  After it had cooled, I added half of each of the bacon, pepper mixture and cheese.  I then mixed this well, checked my seasoning and filled my tortillas.  I wrapped each burrito in aluminum foil.  As soon as I had a cookie sheet filled with a single layer of burritos, I placed them in the freezer.  I then prepared the rest of the scrambled eggs and did it all again.  Once the burritos were frozen, I placed them in labeled ziploc bags.

The frozen burritos can be reheated in the microwave.  Check after one minute!

Frozen burritos can also be reheated in the oven:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place frozen burritos in the oven for 20-30 minutes.  If you want them toasted on the outside, remove the aluminum foil after 20 minutes and place them on a pan and return the burritos to the oven.  Cook until the desired crispness is attained!

Update:
The breakfast burritos were a big hit with the fishermen!  I guess I know what I will be making for their next fishing trip!

Recently, my sister had lots of company and prepared 20 breakfast burritos ahead of time and froze them.  The morning she had to feed her guests , she reheated the burritos in the oven and the burritos were ready for each person as they woke up!  She said it worked perfectly and everyone enjoyed their breakfast burritos!
