Breakfast Burritos – Freezer- Friendly!

wpid-C360_2014-03-14-09-37-24-842.jpgMy husband gets up around 3:30 AM to get ready for work.  He needs something for breakfast that is going to be quick and easy.  It is to expensive for him to get something fast food every day.  He usually eats bagels but I wanted to give him a little change.  We both really like the McDonald’s breakfast burritos and I have to tell you these are pretty darn close!  Now if I could figure out how to make their hash browns for my kids I’d be doing good. 😉  To make it a little more special I wrote on a few of the burrito wrappers with some little notes for my husband to tell him how much I love him.

  1. Oh these look really good! I am always looking for quick recipe ideas. I’ll have to pin it and make this soon!

  2. I often do freezer bowls for my husband too! Sausage, eggs and sometimes onions& green peppers! just can’t beat it for a hot breakfast from home that I don’t have to cook at 5;30! agree!

    • Sharon I’ll have to try freezer bowls too. I’m looking for ways to give him a little bit of a variety in the morning so he doesn’t get burnt out having the same thing each day.
