    • Breakfast Burrito's

      These are remarkably easy to make
      Choose one or more of the following Meats:


      Cooked bacon
      Hamburger
      Diced Ham
      Sausage


      Choose one of more of the Following Vegetables:


      Onion chopped
      Chopped green pepper
      Tomatoes
      Chopped scallions
      salsa


      To make:
      Scramble a few eggs, add a handful of meat, a handful of your favorite cheese, a handful of veggies and fill your flour tortilla.


      Flash freeze them and then vacuum seal. To reheat toss in microwave or in the oven.




      Tortillas
      6 cups All purpose flour
      1 tsp. Baking powder
      1/2 tsp. Salt
      1/2 cup Vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces
      2-1/2 cups Warm water


      Directions


      Place the flour in the bowl of a mixer. Add baking powder and salt. Mix well. Add shortening. Mix on low while slowly adding water. Mix on low for 90 seconds or until well mixed.


      Scrape the dough out of the bowl and onto a floured surface. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Cover with plastic wrap, set aside at room temperature for 20 minutes. Divide each half into 8 equal portions. Lightly flour a work surface and rolling pin.
      Roll each ball into an 8-inch round. Stack rounds on baking sheet with plastic wrap between each tortilla. Let set for 10 minutes. Fry lightly on each side until bubbles, remove from heat, fill and freeze.

        This is a great idea, but how do you flash freeze food at home? Thanks

        Technically it's not true flash freezing, but place them on a cookie sheet, evenly spaced apart and then place in the freezer for about 2 hours. They will be firm enough to vacuum seal without damaging them (squishing!).

        Wonderful! Thank you so much for not only the answer, but for this site! It truly is a godsend.

        Love this idea! I'm constantly running behind in the morning so this would be a lifesaver
        For microwave heating, would one minute on high do it?
        What temp and for how long in the oven?

        Thanks!

        I just made breakfast burritos this morning. My kids love them. I like the idea of making and freezing to make morning go a little more smoothly. I have never tried making my own tortillas. I'll have to give this recipe a shot. I also have a recipe in my Betty Crocker cookbook that makes them from a batter. I would think that would be more like a crepe. It would be nice to be able to pour them into a pan rather than rolling out, though I would think the rolled out version would be a more authentic tortilla.

        I really appreciate that the tortilla recipe is included. You guys think of everything!

      Re: MYO Cucumber Salsa

      You can save a lot of fat calories by substituting Plain or Greek Yogurt without sacrificing flavour. They are also less expensive that Sour Cream and even cheaper if you make them at home.
