Rest Day Recipe
Make Ahead Freezer Friendly Breakfast Burritos
Recipe courtesy of projectmealplan.com
1 green bell pepper (or any color), diced
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
16 ounces ground breakfast meat (macros include ground chicken sausage)
10 eggs, whisked with a pinch of salt and a pepper whisked in
8 Ole Whole Wheat Tortilla Wraps (or other wraps, but make sure they are large)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil
pinch of salt/fresh ground pepper
Cook meat & veggies: Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large/deep skillet. When hot, add onion, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder. Sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add meat and cook thoroughly, until completely cooked, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. At this point, dump the meat and veggies in a large bowl, drain any excess liquid and set aside to cool.
Cook the eggs: Use a paper towel to wipe out your pan, or use an alternative pan. Reduce heat to low and return the pan to the heat. Add all eggs to the pan and stir continuously until the eggs are just barely cooked through. Do not over cook – eggs will cook a tiny bit more when your burritos are reheated. Remove the eggs from the pan and set aside to cool. Let everything cool completely to reduce moisture in the burritos.
Make burritos: Set up your burrito assembly line. Warm up your tortillas for 20 seconds in the microwave to make them more foldable and less likely to rip. Make 8 burritos, each with 1 big scoop of mixture and a sprinkle of cheese on top. Wrap your burritos by folding the sides in and wrapping the tortilla to tuck in the sides (like at Chipotle!).
Store & Reheat: Wrap each burrito tightly in foil and store in the freezer. Take a burrito out of the freezer the night before you plan to eat it so it can thaw. Best when reheated in a toaster oven for 7-8 minutes (depending on your toaster oven). You can also toast for 4-5 minutes to get the outside crispy, then microwave for 30-45 more seconds to ensure it’s heated through.
