Bacon, Egg and Cheese Burritos (Freezer Cooking Bulk Recipe)

I made a batch of Breakfast Burritos and froze the servings individually. These are great for a quick breakfast on the go, very easy to eat with little mess. By making my own instead of buying the manufactured products at the store, I saved lots of money and they are healthier than what's at the supermarket. Here is what I bought and how I made them (This is the lower calorie version than what I made. I wasn't dieting at the time!)

 4 Packs  Low Carb  tortillas  (whatever is the best price) Mine were $2.50 each and gave me 10 in a pack!
*if you are good in the kitchen you can  make your own!

2 Cartons of Egg Beaters, (Used Southwestern flavor) I found mine at Publix for $0.40/a carton

1 Pack Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon-Got at Walmart for $1.03 with coupon.
(Use can also use sausage if you prefer)

1 16oz pack shred cheese- got for $0.49 at a past Kroger sale!

1 Large onion chopped $0.69

How I Made them:

~I cooked my Turkey Bacon in the Microwave because it is faster and the bacon is crispier and crumbles better. I laid 6 strips at a time and cooked 2 minutes then flipped and cooked an additional minute for each batch.

~Spray some Pam cooking spray in a Large Frying Pan and cook all the chopped Onion until tender

~Crack all the eggs into a large bowl and whisk, then add eggs to the Onions in Pan
(you may have to cook half of the eggs at a time if you have smaller Pan)
Scramble the eggs until fully cooked.

~Lay tortillas on a microwave safe plate and heat for 30 seconds (I did 10  at a time)

~Put a couple spoonfuls of eggs in a burrito, crumble half a strip of bacon on the eggs, sprinkle some shredded cheese, then fold one end of the burrito a third of the way up, then Roll to form the burrito.

I put two finished burritos to a ziploc bag, then froze. I was able to make a total of 40 Burritos out of these ingredients for a total cost of $12.90 or, only $0.32 per burrito! I estimate them to have about 134 calories per burrito with 8grams of fiber!

When you are ready to eat just take them out of the baggies and heat 2 at a time for about a minute and a half to Two minutes!  I like to put some hot sauce on mine when they are done, or you could also dip in salsa!
