This is the best breakfast burrito recipe for anyone who loves eggs. 

I have made these breakfast burritos too many times to count, and they disappear so fast in our house!

It’s a toss up in our house which we love more, these or my vegan breakfast burritos

Both use the same insanely good crispy potato hash, which is where so much of the flavor is!

If you are looking for delicious breakfast recipes, you have to try this hash brown egg casserole.

The flavor of slow roasted sweet and russet potatoes mixed with caramelized garlic and onion just cannot be matched.

It is my absolute favorite breakfast potato recipe.

These burritos have just 3 steps:

  1. fluffy scrambled eggs
  2. freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese
  3. crispy potato hash.

The prep time takes a bit, but the end result is worth it!

For the hash in this recipe, you can either use this oven roasted hash, or this air fryer breakfast hash

Both are essentially the same recipe. 

If you have an air fryer, I highly recommend trying potatoes in there. 

It is typically faster than roasting potatoes in the oven.

Here is what the air fryer hash looks like.

The hash is where so much of that amazing flavor comes from. 

Flavors like garlic, onion, and thyme make these potatoes bursting with flavor. 

And whatever you do, be sure to grate your cheddar cheese fresh. 

There is such a difference and it tastes so much better this way!

How do I freeze breakfast burritos?

To freeze these burritos, wrap each burrito in aluminum foil, then place in a freezer safe ziploc bag. 

I have found that a gallon sized bag will usually hold 4 breakfast burritos. 

How do I reheat frozen breakfast burritos?

To reheat your burritos, remove from foil and microwave on a plate for one minute.

Cut in half and microwave an additional 1 – 2 minutes, until heated throughout.
