Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos

This is basically a no brainer meal that can be easily personalized for everyone. The tacos can be cooked right after assembly for frozen to be packed for the road. 


  • Tin foil
  • Rimmed cookie sheet (for oven heating)

Ingredients: (this is a super versatile meal so feel free to expand on these options)

  • 8 corn or flour tortillas (note that corn tortillas fall apart very easily without heating)
  • ½ cup refried beans
  • 8 strips bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 8 eggs, scrambled
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of choice such as a mexican/taco style mix, cheddar, monterey jack, etc.
  • Additional fillings: tomato, avocado, salsa, onion, cilantro, jalapenos, hot sauce, sauteed peppers and onions, roasted potatoes or hashbrowns, etc.
  • Note: certain fresh fillings such as avocado, tomato, cilantro, and hot sauce may be better added after heating to avoid the taco from becoming soggy.


  1. For wrapping ease, tear off a strip of foil slightly larger than your tortilla to assemble your taco on.
  2. Place tortilla on foil and layer your chosen toppings. For this recipe: 1 scrambled egg, 1 piece of bacon, 1 tbsp beans, 2 tbsp shredded cheese – and additional fillings. 
  3. Roll up the taco and wrap tightly with the foil. Recommend wrapping the foil like you would a burrito and tucking the ends in to avoid spilling.
  4. From here you can freeze the burritos OR place them in the oven to heat

Cooking Options:

  1. If you are not cooking from frozen place the burritos on a rimmed cookie sheet after assembly and into a 350° oven for 15 min. They can stay in the oven at no more than 200° for up to 2 hours if you have late risers.
  2. If you are going from frozen you go through the same steps, but put them in the 350° oven for about 20 minutes or until heated through. 
  3. If using the fire, place over the heat for 15-20 min or until hot through. Depending on your fire this may still require the use of a baking sheet. 
  4. You can also heat these in the microwave if you’re in a pinch! Remove the tin foil and wrap the taco in a damp paper towel for even heating, about 2 minutes per taco. 

Additional Notes:

You can keep these in the fridge without freezing 2-3 days before eating depending on your ingredients. Remember certain food safety standards will differ on store time of cooked food.
