Freezer Breakfast Burritos

from: http://busycooks.about.com/od/breakfastmaindishes/r/freezerburrito.htm

You can vary the additions to this recipe for breakfast burritos. Add onions or frozen hash brown potatoes, omit the salsa, try using different types of cheese or flavored tortillas. The possibilities are endless!

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


· 12 eggs

· 2 Tbsp. butter

· 1 lb. pork sausage, cooked and drained

· 1/2 cup chunky salsa

· 2 cups Cheddar or Pepper Jack cheese

· 24 flour tortillas


In large skillet, melt butter. Beat eggs in large bowl and add to skillet. Cook eggs in butter, stirring frequently, until scrambled and set. Add cooked sausage and salsa to egg mixture and mix gently.

Warm tortillas as directed on package. Place about 1/2 cup egg and sausage mixture onto each tortilla and sprinkle with some cheese. Roll up each tortilla to make burritos, folding in the ends and rolling up. Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets and freeze until solid. Then wrap individually and package in zip-lock freezer bags.

When you're ready to eat, unwrap the burritos, wrap loosely in microwave safe paper towel and heat in the microwave on high power for 1-3 minutes until hot and cheese is melted.

You can also thaw burritos in the refrigerator overnight, then wrap each in foil and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until hot. The thawed burritos can also be deep fried for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and crisp. 24 burritos

“Berry-Cherry Groovy Smoothie”

Courtesy of Nick Jr:http://www.nickjr.com/recipes/groovy-berry-cherry-smoothie.jhtml?path=/recipes/all-shows/drinks/all-ages/index.jhtml


1/2 cup strawberries, raspberries, and cherries with pits removed (fresh or frozen)

1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt

1/4 cup apple juice


Toss your fruit into the blender.

Add the yogurt and then the apple juice for a little sweetness. If you're using fresh fruit (not frozen), add a few ice cubes as well.

Now it's time to bounce! Switch on the blender and watch all of that fruit bounce around.

Pour each smoothie into a tall glass and finish off with a straw.
