Freezable Egg Tacos: A Quick & Easy Breakfast Recipe

I’ve had a problem lately cooking proteins in the morning, due to morning sickness, yet, proteins last longer in my nauseous tummy. She said she would cook her breakfast stuff in the afternoon when she was feeling good, assemble breakfast burritos or English muffin sandwiches and freeze them individually. Then she could just pop them in the microwave and eat them. I love it!

It also works great for mornings with early appointments or husbands who don’t take time to eat breakfast at home but can eat on the go–cheaper than buying pre-made stuff, of course.

Freezeable Breakfast Tacos Ingredients

makes 12 tacos, prep 15 min, cook time 20 min

  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 lb bacon (12 slices)
  • 6 oz cheese
  • 12 flour tortillas

directions to make Freezable Egg tacos

Step 1

First cook bacon or sausage or any other ingredients. I used this method for the bacon and was able to start the eggs and do all the prep while the bacon was cooked.

Step 2

Combine eggs and milk, beat. Pour into a hot skillet and scramble.

Step 3

Allow them to cool while preparing an assembly line station for making the tacos.

Step 4

Let your ingredients cool before making the tacos because too much heat will steam them and make them wet. We aren’t eating them now so it doesn’t matter if it’s cold-in fact, it is better.

Step 5

Warm up the tortillas (I know I just said it should all be cold, but not the tortillas or they will tear) by heating them in the microwave covered by a damp towel for about 1 minute, until they are soft and pliable.

Step 6

Lay out a tortilla, add a small slice of cheese, a small scoop of egg, and a small scoop of whatever else you are adding, a slice of bacon, etc. Don’t try to overstuff the tortillas or they will rip or leak and you won’t have your handy portable breakfast.

Step 7

Fold in the sides then roll the tortilla up so all the filling is enclosed. Place seam side down to cool. Continue with remaining tortillas and filling.

Step 8

Once tacos are cool roll them up in parchment or wax paper or plastic wrap. Freeze.

Step 9

To reheat: If wrapped in paper, place in the microwave and microwave in 30-second bursts for about 2 minutes or until hot through. If wrapped in plastic, remove plastic wrap and wrap in a paper towel to microwave.

    Oh my goodness! That picture is making me SO SO SO hungry! That looks deelish, great idea for a breakfast on the go!

    By the way- I’m really enjoying reading your blog! It’s so much fun!

  2. Good idea! I am famous for not making breakfast in time to eat it (so everyone else gets it, I leave first in the morning) so I grab something on my way to work. I think I’ll try it with sliced mushrooms instead of the bacon, yum! (oh, and some green onions!)

  3. Thanks for this. Breakfast from the freezer always sounds good.
