1 pound potatoes (- any variety - we used red-skinned potatoes, chopped into 1-inch cubes)

1 pound breakfast sausage or bacon

2 red bell peppers (thinly sliced)

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 tablespoons butter

18 eggs

1/2 cup shredded cheese

18 7.5-inch tortillas*


Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Place the potatoes and bell peppers on a sheet pan, then toss them with the olive oil, salt, and pepper and spread them over the pan.

If you're using sausage: simply use your fingers to pull apart the sausage and add clumps of it onto the sheet pan with the potatoes and peppers. Bake all three together for 40 minutes.

If you're using bacon: bake the peppers and potatoes for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, lay the bacon on a separate sheet pan and transfer it to the oven to bake alongside the peppers and potatoes for an additional 20 minutes.

While the peppers and potatoes bake, crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk with salt and pepper.

Add the butter to a large skillet over medium-low heat. Once melted, pour in the eggs and scramble until the desired texture is achieved, then remove from heat.

To assemble your burritos: let the filling ingredients cool for about 10 minutes, then heat a tortilla in a skillet over medium-high heat for about 15 seconds per side and place it on a piece of cut parchment paper.

Add your fillings to the middle of the tortilla, then top with shredded cheese. Fold the two opposite sides of the tortilla over the filling, then fold the other side over the filling and roll as tightly as you can, making sure to use your fingers to keep in all of the fillings while rolling.

Wrap the parchment paper around the burritos, then secure with tape or a rubber band and place in a freezer-safe bag. Repeat until all burritos are assembled!

To reheat: remove the tape and microwave on high for 60-90 seconds, or bake it at 350 F for 10-15 minutes until warmed through.
