We’ve enjoyed making breakfast burgers and breakfast burritos for awhile now; they are so convenient and delicious on work day mornings. This morning I restocked our stash, making 12 of each. This time I varied the breakfast sandwiches by making Ham, Egg, and Cheese English Muffins and changed up the burritos a little by mixing the eggs and cheese with the sausage while cooking.
I tallied up the price of making each:
- English muffin sandwiches – $.62 a piece or $7.45 for 12 with coupons, without is $11.45
- Breakfast Burritos – $.84 a piece or $10.11 for 12 with coupons, without is $12.23
If nothing else, these are one good reason for Monday to come…
12 English muffins, toasted
12 eggs, beaten
6 American cheese slices, halved
12 deli ham slices
Scramble eggs; while eggs are cooking, split and toast muffins. Once eggs are cooked and cooled, set up an assembly line of muffins, eggs, cheese, ham; assemble and then wrap in plastic wrap.
Freeze wrapped egg sandwiches in freezer bags or freezer boxes. I place the wrapped sandwiches back into their original bag.
To heat: Wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 45-65 seconds. Be careful it will be nice and hot.

Freezer Breakfast Burritos
You can also stir salsa into the egg mixture, but Andy prefers to have the salsa on the side for dipping.
12 eggs, beaten
1 lb bulk sausage
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
12 flour tortillas
In a large skillet, cook and drain sausage. Add eggs to the sausage and scramble until done. Remove from heat, stir in shredded cheese. (You could mix in 1/2 cup salsa here if you’d like). Warm tortillas in microwave 20-30 seconds or until warm and flexible. Place 1/2 cup egg mixture into tortilla; roll burrito-style. Freeze burritos in single layer on a cookie sheet. When fully frozen (in about 1 hour) place burritos in large zip-top freezer bag; freeze.
To heat: Wrap in a paper towel and microwave until heated through, about 90 seconds.
