Breakfast Burritos

This was a big transition week for our family as we adjusted from sleeping in and days without a plan to waking up at 6:30am and rushing out the door. Needless to say, we are still smoothing out the morning kinks! I decided to make some burritos this afternoon to ease some of the breakfast-making pressure. These Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos are a hit with kids and adults in our house. I usually make a double batch and toss them in the freezer for the week. Have you ever had one of those morning where you had to eat in the car? Well, this is the perfect meal solution for that too! I like to change the burrito recipe up by using different Eckert House-made sausages. My favorite sausage is the Bacon Applewurst but Chris really likes our fresh Chorizo. Applewurst and Italian Sausage are also tasty!
