We love burritos, our Bean and Cheese Burritos are a regular meal at our house. We also love starting the day wit Breakfast Burritos. You get all of your favorite breakfast foods in one hand held burrito and are easy to customize.

A flour tortilla is stuffed with scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, melty cheese, tater tots, creamy avocado, and fresh pico de gallo. Are you hungry yet?

And I know they are technically breakfast burritos, but they can be enjoyed anytime of the day. They make a great savory breakfast on the go, lunch, dinner, or even a late night meal.

They are easy to make and freeze well too! Breakfast burritos are basically the perfect meal.

Ingredients

  • Tater tots– we love using tater tots for the potato option, but hash browns or breakfast potatoes work well too!
  • Bacon– My boys love bacon in their burritos, but you can use sausage or chorizo. And if you want to make vegetarian breakfast burritos, just leave it out! You could also add beans for extra protein.
  • Butter– You will need a little butter (or oil) to cook the eggs so they don’t stick to the pan.
  • Eggs– scramble the eggs with a little water or milk.
  • Flour tortillas– use large flour tortillas (10-inch size). I don’t recommend corn tortillas for breakfast burritos.
  • Shredded cheese– bring on the cheese!!
  • Avocado– a MUST!
  • Pico de gallo– fresh pico adds a ton of flavor!
  • Salsa and hot sauce– for serving!

How to Make Breakfast Burritos

Homemade breakfast burritos are easy to make and taste SO much better than frozen burritos or burritos you can get at any restaurant. These are the very best!

  • First, cook the tater tots and the bacon. Make sure they both get nice and crispy! If you don’t have tater tots, you can use hash browns or breakfast potatoes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk or water, salt, and pepper.

  • In a medium skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter or heat the olive oil. Turn the heat to medium low and add the eggs. Cook until softly scrambled. Remove from heat.
  • Place the tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds or until pliable and chop up the bacon.

  • To assemble the burritos, lay the tortillas on a clean, flat surface. Divide the eggs equally between the tortillas, placing them in a line down the center of the tortilla. Place about 5 tater tots on top of the eggs, you can smash them down a little with your hands or a spoon. Top evenly with the bacon pieces, cheese, sliced avocado, and pico de gallo.
  • Fold in opposite sides of each tortilla, then roll up, burrito-style. You can serve immediately or heat them up.

  • If you want to heat the burritos up, so the outside gets a little crispy and so the cheese can melt, place the burritos, seam-side down in a large skillet and cook on medium-high heat for about 30 seconds on all sides. You can also place the burritos on a greased baking sheet and bake in a 400-degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until heated through.
  • Serve breakfast burritos with salsa, a dash of hot sauce, and guacamole! YUM!

Variations

  • Make a vegetarian breakfast burrito and leave out the bacon.
  • Instead of bacon, use sausage or chorizo.
  • Add black beans, pinto beans, or refried beans.
  • You can leave out the tater tots. You can also add hash browns or breakfast potatoes. Roasted sweet potatoes would also be good!
  • Instead of cheddar cheese use Monterey jack, pepper jack, or a blend of Mexican cheese.
  • Add pickled red onions!
  • For a spicy kick, add sliced jalapeños.
  • Instead of fresh avocado, use guacamole!
  • If you need the burritos to be gluten-free, use a gluten-free tortilla. We like Siete’s tortillas.

How to Freeze

Trust me, you need to keep a stash of breakfast burritos in your freezer for emergencies. They freeze beautifully and always hit the spot! You can easily double or triple this recipe.

  • Wrap the burritos with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place in a freezer bag or freezer container. Freeze for up to 2 months.
  • To reheat, remove the plastic wrap or foil, wrap the burritos in paper towels, and microwave for about 3 to 5 minutes, turning halfway. You can also reheat the frozen burritos in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 30 to 40 minutes.

    1. If you are making them to freeze, sure, you can leave out the avocado. You can serve with guacamole or fresh avocado.

    1. You can freeze avocado so you can add it in. I would add a little lime juice to prevent browning. But if you are worried about freezing it, you can leave it out and serve fresh avocado or guacamole with the burritos after defrosting and heating up.
