One of my friends made breakfast burritos at a recent freezer cooking party so I brought home two big zipper seal bags of burritos for the freezer. They went quickly. The boys and I devoured them for breakfasts, lunches, and after school snacks. It was so easy to pop one in the microwave and have a delicious portable meal or snack.
I hate to throw food away, but we sometimes tire of the same leftovers so I started filling tortillas with leftovers and freezing them. Not everything would taste good in a burrito, but I have found a few things that do.
I shredded some leftover pork roast and stir fried it in a little olive oil with some leftover chinese takeout rice adding in some sliced onion and pepper. It was delicious.
We had pork burritos for dinner and I made extras for the freezer with the leftovers. I have also made freezer burritos out of leftover sausage, mushrooms, and onions. Another favorite are burritos made from leftover ham and eggs with added cheese.
So easy to prepare and a great way to use up leftovers. Make them any way you like.
cheese if you like
Roll up tortillas with your favorite leftovers then wrap in foil or plastic wrap and freeze. Label to identify main ingredients. When ready for a quick and easy meal, simply unwrap the frozen tortilla. It will hold it's shape without the foil or plastic wrap and microwave 30-60 seconds until warm.
What is your favorite way to use leftovers?
