Now that school has started, one of the biggest issues in a busy mom’s life is what to serve for breakfast? Even though I don’t send my kids off to school every morning, I remember the days when I did. It was difficult to find something quick, healthy, and cheap. This is one standby that fits the bill!
These are easy to make in bulk on the weekends, so you have a quick breakfast on weekday mornings. And breakfast burritos are very versatile, so you can mix up the taste from one batch to the next.
Here’s the basic version. Layer some scrambled eggs, cheese, and salsa on a tortilla, fold it up, wrap it in plastic, and throw it in a freezer bag in the freezer.
|Breakfast Burritos Recipe||
Assuming each breakfast burrito uses 1 tortilla, 2 eggs, and 2 tablespoons each of cheese and salsa, the price of each burrito comes out to just 57 cents! Add an apple or banana for some fruit, and a cup of milk, and you have a well rounded breakfast!
To make it even healthier, you could add veggies in season. Change the type of cheese you use to vary the taste. Both of these options would raise the total cost a bit, but with a base cost of 57 cents, it won’t break the bank!
That’s my Tightwad Tuesday tip! What’s yours?
