Breakfast Burritos

I found this website a few weeks ago and decided the breakfast burritos were worth making. Jason had been buying the QuikTrip ones and even though they are $1.50ish, they are still loaded with sodium and bad cholesterol. So on November 4, Jason and I made 30 breakfast burritos. I put italian sausage in his.

So I ate my 10 burritos over the past few weeks and needed to make more. I made sure this time to get lower point tortilla (2 points each) and used more egg beaters then eggs (32 ounces of egg beaters + 4 eggs), and the healthier, 2% cheese.

My recipe made 19, 3 Point Plus Burritos.
$4 Tortillas
$4 Egg Beaters, Eggs
$1 Milk
$3 Veggies
$2 Cheese
Total = $0.75 cents a burrito.

The recipe I used:
1 Cup of Mushrooms
1 Green Pepper
1 Small White Onion
Saute in 2 tablespoons of butter.
Mix eggs/egg beaters (Supposed to be 18 eggs), with milk, salt & pepper to taste. Cook in large stock pot to "scramble"
Mix egg and veggie mixture together.
Chill in fridge for a while.
Mix in 2 cups of cheese. (I like mild cheddar.)

Have Jason roll you 19-21 burritos. He's an expert now.

I put them on a cookie sheet in the freezer. Once frozen I put them in ziplock bags. The best way to heat them (everything is already cooked) is to take one out the night before and put it in the fridge. Then heat for 45-seconds or so on each side. If you forget to take one out, I leave it to defrost on my desk from 7-9am then heat it 60-seconds or so on each side.

Edit - My Comment. Because for some reason I can't comment on my or friends blogs!
The first time I made these, I added too much milk and they were running. This time I also drained the fluid from the veggie mix that accumulated while cooking.
These were perfect this time. They are a bit hot to hold so I wouldn't recommended these while driving.

I'll have to give it a try! The last ones I made in the freezer were always soggy reheated.
