Make these Protein Packed Breakfast Burritos ahead to reheat throughout the week!
Breakfast Burrito Recipe
In an attempt to make sure my kids have a healthy breakfast before heading out the door and that our mornings run as smoothly as possible, I started making breakfast burritos to keep in the freezer. Just pull it out, pop it in the microwave and eat.
They are filling, yummy and packed with protein to keep their bellies full until lunch time.
To make this Breakfast Burrito Recipe, you’ll need:
Start by browning 1.25 pounds of ground turkey; season with 1 packet of taco seasoning
Add one (15 oz) can of black beans and one (10 oz) can of Rotel tomatoes
Mix well and turn heat down to low to keep warm.
Meanwhile, in a separate pan, saute two cups of spinach
In a small bowl, beat five eggs, five egg whites, 1/4 cup milk, one teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. When spinach starts to wilt, add egg mixture.
Stir constantly until eggs are scrambled. Add the egg mixture to the meat mixture
Add a heaping 1/2 cup of the filling to an 8″ whole wheat tortilla. Top with one tablespoon of cheddar cheese. Repeat.
Fold and serve
These burritos pack in approximately 20g of protein a piece and are only 320 calories.

Freezer Breakfast Burritos
I wrap them individually and put in the freezer. On busy mornings, we just pop them in the microwave for 90 seconds, flipping over half way through.

Silly question, but what kind of paper are you wrapping them in? and is that washi tape?
Great breakfast! I really love burritos and when it comes to trying to combine love and health, I always have hard time. You helped a lot!
The other for the Burrito was the Protein-packed Breakfast Burrito,sorry about that.
Hi Mique, I was wondering for the Pesto Chicken Bundles what the nutrition facts are ? Also for the Breakfast Burrito,Turkey that is. Sorry. Thanks so very much.
How long do you think they can stay in the freezer? I dont want them to stay in there without using them and then ending up throwing them away. good idea!
They should stay for up to 3 months if they are well-wrapped individually and placed in a freezer bag, also well-sealed ;)
I made your breakfast burritos and green bean/tomato with dill recipes. By far my favorite recipe finds!!! They will become a staple in our house and hopefully someday my son will eat them with me :) You have the greatest recipes, because they are simple, delish, and all foods that I actually eat–and have in my house! Thank you!
So glad the breakfast burritos were a hit! The greatest thing about them is that they are so versatile and ingredients can be substituted easily with things you (and you son) like :)

I just made these tonight! They were reallllllllllly gooooooood!!! Thanks so much for the recipe!!!!!!!!!!
YAY! So glad you enjoyed them ;)
When you re-heat them do they get soggy at all?
If the burritos are not wrapped tight enough and juices seep out, then they can get a little soggy. One way to avoid it, other than a tight wrap, is to reheat fold side down for the first 45 seconds, then fold side up for the next 45 seconds.
Awesome! Thanks, am definetly going to try this!

This looks yummy! Now that all my girls are in school, I have been grabbing protein bars and eating one while I drive to the gym. I do not get enough protein in my diet. These would taste great while driving to the gym!
They absolutely would! They are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast.
Yum! I need to make these for myself =)
YES! Do it! The whole family enjoys them…adults and kids alike :)
