Freezer Breakfast Burritos Recipe on Food52It took 18 eggs, 12 tortillas, and 3 mountains of grated cheese to yield this—the freezer breakfast burrito of my hopes and dreams. Allow me to explain... Which cheese works best? Mozzarella is melty but too mild. Cheddar is flavorful but doesn’t have the correct amount of goo. Pre-shredded is temptingly convenient but faintly starchy. Monterey Jack, with its velvety melt, quickly decimated with a grater, is the winner. Do I need to prep potatoes from scratch? No. One session of rinsing and squeezing and flipping grated potatoes rendered that idea obsolete. Then I remembered—tots! But more of them made their way into my mouth than the burrito, and something wasn’t quite right. So I returned to the freezer aisle to discover shredded hash browns. What even are shredded hash browns? Ignoring this and other existential questions, I forged on, and they were perfect, substantial but creamy. What’s the easiest way to cook 8 eggs? I started with scrambled eggs. This was good, this was working out, my life was great. But then I didn’t have a pan big enough to scramble the 8 eggs, and I didn’t want to cook them in batches. Solution? Bake the eggs in a thin sheet like a frittata. Easier to cook and easier to build the burrito. The trick to getting a luxurious layer of eggs, similar to a quiche, is to cook it low with a bit of cornstarch to hold it together and some dairy for added lubrication. Wait, where’s the meat? I ended up nixing the breakfast meat to cut back on bulk (beans and eggs provide enough heft). If you’d like to add some in, though, feel free to use about ½ pound of cooked protein (tempeh, seasoned tofu, bacon, sausage, or ham) scattered on top of the eggs just before rolling. Any tips on assembly? Wait for the potatoes and eggs to cool before ensconcing them snugly inside (steamy ingredients equal soggy tortillas). When it’s time to roll, don’t be overzealous and tug too tight. Roll loosely, then tighten up the shape when wrapping with parchment (I was inspired Is there such a thing as gluten free burritos? Wow, that recipe looks like a great and delic idea! …I can’t help but feel that the ambition is misplaced.
