So one food you may hear us talking about a lot on this blog is breakfast burritos. That is because they are, in our opinion, some of the best camping breakfasts. They have lots of protein in them and they keep you feeling full.

When we were in the planning stages Jack said he wanted me to try making some breakfast burritos we could warm up over the fire in the mornings. Below is my original recipe. I was worried about how the eggs would freeze, but they turned out great! This breakfast was definitely one of the favorites and was great to have on a freezing cold morning. However, don’t be afraid to make them to keep in the freezer at home for quick and easy breakfasts!


2-3 lbs. breakfast sausage
2 dozen eggs
1 6 oz. can of mushrooms, diced
1 small onion, diced
1/4 –1/2 cup salsa
4-5 cups grated cheese
20 tortilla shells


Sautee the onions and mushrooms together in a large pan then add the breakfast sausage and cook until browned all the way through. In a separate pan scramble the two dozen eggs until light and fluffy. Mix the eggs into the sausage mixture and add salsa and any other peppers to taste. Cool and then add the grated cheese. Place some of the filling into the center of the tortilla shell and fold both ends over, then fold one side over and roll the tortilla in the direction of the last fold. Wrap each burrito individually in tinfoil and freeze.

When it comes time to reheat lay on a grate over an open fire and cook until steamy inside. Best served with taco sauce. They can also be cooked in a oven or warmed up in a convection oven at 350 degrees until the center is hot.
