When we started homeschooling a few years ago, I thought feeding everyone breakfast everyone morning would get easier. Ok, honestly, it did.  But, it did change quite a bit, too.

Instead of trying to get everyone out the door to catch a bus, now, I'm dealing with an endless stream of children in the kitchen every morning looking to eat and they are starving..or so they tell me.  Not only are they starving, they get tired of digging into cold cereal every morning.

Yes, cold cereal.  In my defense, it is healthy cold cereal. 😏

When the kids first stopped going to public school, I was making them muffins, eggs, sausage, pancakes.  Lots of good stuff. Then, we started some classes outside the house, kids started getting involved with more things in the community, plus, my daughter with autism started her therapy sessions. The relaxing no-schedule mornings started filling up quickly.

Making those muffins, pancakes and eggs became a little tough, so, that cold cereal just makes life a little easier sometimes.  (I do still make them, just not as often).

Enter these lovely breakfast burritos.

They are not fancy, but, darn it, they are delicious. They are also freezable. Therefore, I can make a batch, toss them in the freezer and anyone can eat one anytime of the day.  Breakfast. Lunch. Snack. Whenever. They also take away some of my cold cereal guilt. 😌

You can totally design these anyway you want.  Ours are usually sausage, scrambled eggs and frozen potatoes that are topped with cheddar cheese sauce.  But, feel free to do bacon, ham, use shredded cheese, add veggies, ditch the potatoes..whatever works for you.

Perfect breakfast at home or on the go. Side them up with the taco sauce and you are good to go!
