Crispy Salsa Verde Breakfast Burritos are loaded with eggs, sausage, peppers, cheese and tomatillo sauce and freezer friendly so you can enjoy one anytime!
So, I shared a recipe for crispy sausage egg breakfast burritos last month, and right away, they took off. And by that I mean that these breakfast burritos are now super popular on my blog, which is definitely a good thing!
And since these easy breakfast burritos are so popular, I decided to change things up a little bit. Because change can definitely be good, especially if it happens to be a delicious recipe for a make ahead, freezer friendly breakfast!
The original recipe for sausage egg burritos is pretty mild, but adding some salsa verde gives the burritos a boost in flavor. I love just about anything with green chile salsa, and if you love salsa verde as much as I do, you need to check out these other recipes with salsa verde.

Like I said, these crispy breakfast burritos are super easy to make and definitely freezer friendly, which means they’re also very easy to reheat. Just make the egg mixture, add it to large tortillas, and heat on a griddle until crisp.
To freeze and reheat these crispy salsa verde breakfast burritos, just follow these simple steps:
- Make the burritos, and heat them on a griddle
- Allow them to cool, then wrap the burritos in plastic wrap and freeze
- Cut in half, wrap in a paper towel, and reheat them in a microwave for 2 minutes, or until heated through
This method makes delicious breakfast burritos that you can enjoy anytime, even on busy mornings! You can even make them for lunch, brunch or dinner!
