Make Ahead Low Carb Breakfast Burrito

Fall is just around the corner and many of your kids have already gone back to school.  That means it’s back to mornings that can get a little hectic.  Which can make breakfast challenging.

But have no fear, I have a solution for you that will make your mornings a little easier AND a lot tastier.  Enter the make ahead low carb breakfast burrito.  In about 30 minutes you can have 12 of these burritos sitting in your freezer ready for whenever you need a quick breakfast.

Make Ahead Low Carb Breakfast Burrito

These burritos are as simple as browning some breakfast sausage and scrambling some eggs.  Then you set up a little assembly line and in no time you’re filling your freezer with a super easy breakfast solution.

We like to eat a fairly low carb diet and I have found that I LOVE  Mission Carb Balance tortillas.  They don’t have a funny taste like some low carb products do.  This isn’t a sponsored post for them either, I just love them.

And don’t worry, these are totally customizable.  If you don’t like breakfast sausage you can use bacon.  Don’t like eggs, omit them.  If you prefer Swiss cheese over cheddar, use that, you get the idea.

Common questions for making breakfast burritos.

  1. My family doesn’t care for breakfast sausage, can I substitute something else?   You can substitute an equal amount of bacon or ham, either would be equally delicious. 
  2. Do I need to include eggs?  You can omit the eggs, but I would suggest you use a little more meat in your burrito.
  3. Where can I find low carb tortillas?  I love the Mission Carb Balance tortillas and I find them at my regular grocery store.
  4. I don’t eat low carb, can I use regular tortillas?  Absolutely, use any kind of tortilla that you like.
