Freezer Breakfast Burritos


  • 2 cups frozen tater tots *See note for option using potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 lb. Amy's Meats breakfast sausage

  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • ⅓ cup half and half**

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1 (16-ounce) can refried beans

  • 8 8-inch flour tortillas

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced or a can of rotell

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.

  • Cook tater tots according to package instructions; set aside.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add sausage and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks; drain excess fat if any, reserving 1 tablespoon in the skillet or add bacon grease back if needed.

  • Add eggs to the skillet and cook, whisking, until they just begin to set. Gently whisk in half and half; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Continue cooking until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 3-5 minutes; set aside.

  • Spread beans down centers of tortillas; top with tater tots, sausage, eggs, cheeses, tomatoes and cilantro. Fold in opposite sides of each tortilla, then roll up, burrito-style.* Place, seam-sides down, onto preparing baking sheet; cover.

  • Place into oven and bake until heated through, about 12-15 minutes.

  • Serve immediately.


*Parboil potato slices or dices first, and you might want to brush them with a little oil or butter so that they brown up nicely, you can also use hash browns (purchased or homemade)

**Half and half is equal parts of whole milk and cream. For 1 cup half and half, you can substitute 3/4 cup whole milk + 1/4 cup heavy cream or 2/3 cup skim or low-fat milk + 1/3 cup heavy cream.

*TO FREEZE: Cover each burrito tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Freeze up to 1 month. To reheat, (1) microwave for 4-6 minutes, turning halfway, or (2) bake at 400 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, or until completely cooked through.
