Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos

Makes 1 dozen

Make a dozen delicious burritos at once, and you'll have them on hand whenever you're hungry and short on time. They're the perfect food to enjoy on a camping trip—first thing in the morning, out on a hike, or late at night by the fire.


  • 12 slices bacon
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, for frying hash browns
  • 20 ounces shredded hash browns
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, for frying eggs
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped
  • 18 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend)
  • 12 large (10-inch) flour tortillas
  • Hot sauce
  • 2 cups spinach


  1. Cook:
  2. Place rack in middle of oven and preheat to 400°F. Arrange bacon slices in single layer on foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until done to liking. Flip slices halfway through, if desired.
  3. While bacon is in oven, cook hash browns in skillet according to package instructions.
  4. In another large pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic, jalapeño, and spinach (if using.) Stir until fragrant (and spinach is wilted). Add whisked eggs and reduce heat to low. Stir occasionally until desired doneness is reached. When eggs are nearly cooked, add shredded cheese and fold in until melted. Allow to cool.
  5. Assemble:
  6. Working in batches, heat 4 tortillas on a plate in microwave for 30 seconds or individually place them on a dry pan over medium heat for a few seconds on each side. Cover with foil to keep pliable. This will make it easier to wrap burritos and reduce risk of tortillas tearing.
  7. Add a portion of hash browns and scrambled eggs to each of the four tortillas, about a cup of filling in each. If desired, add hot sauce; then top with a slice of bacon.
  8. Form burrito by bringing up bottom of tortilla over ingredients and cupping your hand over top of the roll. Use your fingers to tug everything together snugly. Push in tortilla on both sides to prevent ingredients from spilling out the ends, and then fold sides of tortilla up over the roll and in towards the center. Roll up slowly, keeping everything tight together. Wrap each burrito individually in a sheet of foil with shiny side facing toward food. Repeat process to make all 12 burritos. Refrigerate until ready to heat.
  9. Reheat:
  10. If taking camping, pack burritos in a sealable bag before placing in cooler to prevent melted ice from getting inside. To warm, place foil-wrapped burritos on a grill over indirect heat or in a covered pan on a camping stove. Turn for even heating.
  11. At home, warm unwrapped burritos in microwave for 30 to 45 seconds or wrapped burritos in a preheated 350°F oven for about 10 minutes. For a crisp exterior, place warm burritos without foil wrap in a dry pan over medium high heat and rotate to toast on all sides.
