Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos

This is one of those recipes that you can totally make ahead of time and in the morning. Once you’ve prepped and rolls all the burritos, wrap them individually and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. When ready to eat, just microwave the pre-rolled burrito for about 1 minute to warm it up, then grill it on your pan or grill top. And if you’re still hungry, this chicken chimichanga looks amazing!

Toppings to Serve with Breakfast Burritos:

  • Different Salsas: Salsa makes this breakfast burrito amazing too so make sure to add some fresh salsa in there! The bright flavors of tomato and onion takes these burritos to a new level. We even have a fresh salsa recipe for you and if you’re craving salsa verde, our tomatillo salsa will hit the spot. Or how about a mango salsa recipe for the the morning fruit?
  • Hot Sauce: If you love spicy food, add a drizzle of hot sauce.
  • Sour cream : the creamy tang of sour cream is a great topping.
  • Guacamole. This is always a favorite.

Check out a Few of our Favorite Cooktop Grilling Pans & Tools:

Nothing heats and sears like a cast iron pan. They are fantastic for cooktop grilling. Here’s some of the favorites:

Cast Iron Grill Pan – Inexpensive and sears like a beast.
Cast Iron Grill Press – Enough weight to get a great sear on steaks or burgers. Sometimes you just need a little weight.
Cast Iron Double Sided Grill Press & Griddle – One side is smooth, the other ribbed. Both are awesome.
