The recipe calls for grated potatoes, are they already cooked?
No! It takes just a few minutes to grate raw potatoes. I don't even peel them. After grating potatoes, squeeze out excess water. Use a cotton cloth or thick paper towel to squeeze out the water from potato.
Can breakfast burritos be frozen?
Absolutely! Make your burritos and wrap in foil. Place in freezer friendly storage bags, labeled with the date and what is in the bag! Refer to the experts at the USDA for any questions regarding freezing food!
How do you reheat the breakfast sandwich in the oven?
- When reheating in the oven, take them from freezer to fridge the night before. Reheat at 350 for about 10-15 minutes.
- Placing from freezer to love will take longer, about 20-25 minutes.
How to reheat breakfast burritos in the microwave?
- Remove the tortillas from the foil.
- Wrap in parchment paper or a damp towel to keep the tortilla soft, microwave for about 2 minutes.
This recipe uses low-carb tortillas, can regular tortillas be used?
Yes, use the tortillas that your family enjoys!
Can a mixture of eggs and egg whites be used to make the egg burritos?
Yes, I switch these up all the time! For the kids, I use whole eggs because I want them getting all protein. For health reasons, I use half eggs and half egg whites for mine.
Can the ingredients be varied for the burritos?
Absolutely! For variety, swap bacon or sausage and your favorite veggies and cheese. Label your burritos so you know what is in each breakfast sandwich!
