AMISH BREAKFAST BURRITOS: These are a surprisingly common, simple and delicious breakfast in Amish homes. Great for busy mornings. Amish cooks that have freezers (gas freezers are increasingly common) will often make these ahead of time, wrap them in foil and freeze them to dole out on particularly busy mornings.

Kevin, I'm excited to try the breakfast burritos. The thing I like most about the recipes that you share are that they are
never complicated and most of the ingredients I always have around the house. I watch one of my grandchildren several days a week and these burritos are right up his alley. He and I will have fun making them and eating them with his "Pops".
Thanks, Pamela, I hope the burritos turn out well!
Being I live in South West Texas and breakfast tacos are the norm here a lot especially in my house. They don't have to go through all those steps to make them.
Since they don't use microwaves to heat the tortillas like I do all they need to do is wrap them in foil a few at a time and stick in the oven while they are making the fillings.
Down here we make the fillings a lot of ways.
Scrambled eggs with fried potato diced and fill the tortillas with that and add a strip of bacon on top. fold in 1/2 and add hot sauce. wrapped in foil sheets.
You can use the scrambled eggs with sausage and what ever else filling you want to add. Do the same thing fold in 1/2 and wrap in foil sheets. add the hot sauce
One of my favorites is take hamburger and crumble it to cook and then add a can of refried beans and mix it all up and put in tortilla add shredded cheese on top and do the foil wrap. I do those for supper where I add lettus [sp] and diced tomatoes and diced onions and put that on top of the mixture and add shredded cheese on top. add the hot sauce.
Also refried beans and cheese are a favorite here. heat the beans and put in tortilla and add the shredded cheese and fold in 1/2 and its done. A few of those and you can work all morning long till lunch time.
We only add butter to tortilla when we heat them up spread some soft butter on them and sprinkle a bit of salt on it and roll it up.
Also those on a diet can get them with corn tortillas instead of flour ones. Little messier than the flour ones so you use 2 of them to wrap the filling in.
The refried beans if you can't find them in the store you can make a day or so ahead Get a bag of Pinto Beans and cook them with some bacon and fresh garlic till they are nice and soft.
Then what you do is get a big skillet and add some bacon grease to it and put some beans in the skillet and mush them down to where you can't see that they are beans. Then you got refried beans. They freeze very well.
Hope no one gets mad at me for the above just was trying to show a much easier way to make them. Being I make them a lot. Just like everyone else down here makes them. 1 2 3 they are done and on the plate
Sharon, thank you for sharing that, those sound amazing, I need to come to your house for breakfast sometime!! (or the Amish need to start making those!)
