We love having these on hand for an easy breakfast meal. I have never actually put them in the freezer! One thing I’ve found is that if you have the inside of the burrito on hand and in the fridge then you can preheat it in the microwave and them wrap it up in a tortilla. I think this is better because the tortilla doesn’t get soggy this way.

Easy Freezer Breakfast Burrito

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Servings 15 burritos


  • 16-24 oz breakfast sausage
  • 1 cup small diced bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup small diced onions
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 30 oz frozen tater tots
  • 10 inch flour tortillas
  • 3-4 cups shredded cheese


  • 1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage, peppers and onions, crumbling the sausage into small pieces as it cooks, until it is no longer pink and cooked through and the veggies are tender.
    2.Drain the grease (you can let the sausage/veggies hang out in the skillet for a minute or remove them to a plate).
    3.In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sour cream, salt and pepper until smooth.Lightly grease a 9X13-inch baking pan.
    4. Place the tater tots in the bottom of the pan (it's ok if they are overlapping a bit).Sprinkle the sausage and veggie mixture over the tater tots. Pour the egg mixture evenly over and across the top. Bake right away OR cover the dish and refrigerate (up to 18 hours).
    5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake covered for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake 20-25 minutes longer until golden, bubbly, and set.If freezing the burritos, let the casserole cool until just warm or room temperature.
    6. If serving right away, go right on ahead with step #7.
    7. Scoop about 1/2 cup of the casserole onto each tortilla (if using smaller tortillas, adapt the amount as needed). Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Fold the sides in and roll up into a burrito. Serve warm with avocados, sour cream, and/or salsa, if desired (they're tasty plain, too).
    I’ve tried a lot of breakfast burritos in my day (love them!), and these are definitely the best easy freezer breakfast burritos! So simple…so delicious!


Sausage/Meat: this recipe is super adaptable to changing what kind of meat you use OR it can easily be left meatless. Chopped ham or cooked bacon would work great, too, in place of the sausage or in addition to.
Freezing: to freeze, put the cooled, rolled burritos in a freezer ziploc bag (you can individually wrap each burrito in plastic wrap before pacing in the bag, if desired). The burritos can be reheated in the microwave or in the oven (unwrap, place in baking dish, cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, uncover and continue to bake until heated through, another 20-30 minutes).
