Unless you’re one of those jump-out-of-bed-at-5 kinda people (teach us your ways!), it’s probably fair to assume you’d like to shave a few minutes off your morning routine. Since brushing your teeth, getting dressed for the day, and gathering your keys/lunch/kids are kind of a must, breakfast is the easiest to trim down time-wise.
On your days off from smoothies or avo toast, try these freeze-and-reheat breakfast burrito recipes instead. All you have to do is cook up a batch up on Sunday, eat one (duh), and then freeze the rest for the next few weeks. Whenever you’re in need of something quick and portable, take one out and microwave for a minute or two, or reheat in the oven (about 10 minutes on 350 degrees should do the trick).
1. Cheesy Bacon and Avocado Breakfast Burritos
You had us at cheesy. This breakfast burrito is packed with peppers, onions, corn, eggs, bacon, and cheddar. Go light on the last two to avoid the mid-morning fog.
2. Sweet Potato and Zucchini Breakfast Burritos
This nontraditional breakfast burrito is a solid, super-flavorful way to start your day. It combines scrambled eggs with diced zucchini and cubes of sweet potato, plus garlic, onions, and a whole bunch of spices to kick things up.
3. Vegan Tofu Breakfast Burritos
By looking at them, you’d never guess these were vegan—turmeric makes scrambled tofu look just like eggs! Add in black beans, avo, and salsa for a protein-filled Tex-Mex breakfast.
4. Spinach, Pepper, and Onion Burritos
Chicken sausage is a Paleo breakfast necessity, but it’s also a great addition to breakfast burritos, caveman diet or not. Spinach, peppers, and onions give you the morning veggie boost you need, while a little cheddar cheese keeps you happy.
5. Kale, Mushroom, and Feta Burritos
Spinach and feta usually get all the attention, but kale can work just as well with the salty cheese. These burritos also have eggs, mushrooms, and onion. Next move? Find your favorite tortilla to wrap it all up in.
6. Spicy Chorizo Breakfast Burritos
Give breakfast meat classics such as ham and bacon a break once in a while and try spicy chorizo instead—you’ll be amazed by how much flavor it has. Add in eggs, peppers, and potatoes, and you’ve got a hearty breakfast that will definitely keep you full all morning.
7. Vegan Mexican Breakfast Burritos
No eggs, no problem. Veggies and chickpeas give you the same consistency as a standard b-fast burrito. Pro tip: Mix the avocado cream inside before freezing or just dollop a little guac on after reheating.
