I am a huge fan of make ahead breakfasts that my kids can prepare by themselves in the morning. 

We almost always have a few choices on hand that my kids can choose between. Our current favorites are rainbow veggie breakfast egg muffins, Instant Pot egg bites and chorizo frittata freezer breakfast sandwiches

These breakfast burritos have become a huge, huge staple for us. We make them A LOT, and everyone loves them. In fact, sometimes I wish they would last a little longer because 20 seem to disappear in my household very quickly.

Thank you to Iowa Egg Council for sponsoring this post. And thank you for supporting the brands that support me and allow me to continue to grow my blog. All opinions, recipes and photographs are my own. 

These make an easy make ahead breakfast or a protein packed snack to keep on hand! We often use them as a quick bite to eat before we head to the barn for lessons.  

My kids love that they can make them on their own (yay independence!), and I love knowing that eggs are a nutritional powerhouse that contribute to health and well-being at every age and life stage and in any diet. 

And with my active kids, I love knowing that eggs provide important nutrients, like high‑quality protein to support muscles and choline for brain health, while helping provide energy.

Easily versatile, simple to make, and so flavorful – these meat lovers burritos are so easy to love!
