How to Keep Freezer Burritos from Getting Soggy

I’ve found that when assembly burritos that you know you are going to freeze, allow the ingredients to cool for at least 10 minutes. Once everything is room temperature or cooler, assemble the burritos. Make cheese the first layer against the tortillas so that it can act like a protective barrier from the moisture of the eggs and vegetables. Layer with dryer ingredients and finishing with the scrambled.

How to Freeze Burritos

Once you add the filling and fold the burritos, wrap individually in foil. Transfer wrapped burritos to a baking sheet and allow to freeze in a single layer. Once the burritos are completely frozen, store in an airtight plastic bag for up to 3 months.

How to Reheat Frozen Breakfast Burritos

If you’re able to plan ahead, transfer your frozen breakfast burritos to the fridge the night before. This will allow them to slowly defrost resulting in a speedier cook time in the morning. In this case, microwave burritos (without the foil wrap) for 30 seconds on each side or until they’re warmed through. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes or until heated through. If you’re reheating from the frozen state, microwave on HIGH for 1 to 2 minutes or bake at 350F for 15 minutes or until heated through.
