Recipe: Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast Burritos

My family loves breakfast burritos.  We love them so much, we often have them for dinner.  Breakfast burritos are a great way to add lots of protein and veggies to your morning meals.  The other great thing about breakfast burritos is that they can be made ahead, wrapped individually and frozen.  Take them on the road, and pop them in the microwave for breakfast or dinner.
