Homemade Breakfast Burrito with Homemade Tortillas

My husband loves a quick breakfast item and homemade breakfast burritos are his favorite. He throws them in the oven (we don't own a microwave for many reasons) when he wakes up and they are ready by the time he is dressed and out the door to work. I wrap our burritos in aluminum foil so they can be thrown in the oven, but you could use freezer paper if you are going to microwave them.
Homemade Tortilla Recipe from Joy of Cooking
4 C all-purpose flour
1tsp. Salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. crisco (I substitute with butter)
1 1/2 C water
Whisk flour, salt, and baking powder together in mixing bowl. Mix in crisco (or butter) until it resembles cornmeal. Add the water and mix until it comes together; place on floured surface and knead until it becomes smooth and elastic (you can also use your mixer with a dough hook). Divide and roll into 24 balls. Let rest for approx. 20 mins.
Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Using a floured rolling pin roll each dough ball into a thin, round (or mostly round, at least in my case) tortilla. Place onto hot skillet, cooking just a few minutes on each side. Devour or make some breakfast burritos!
Breakfast Burrito Mixture
1 lb Breakfast Sausage
.5 lb Bacon
12 Scrambled Eggs
1/2 Red Onion (finely chopped)
1 small can Green Chilis
1 packaged of mushrooms sautéed
2 Roma Tomatoes
2 C Homemade home fries
1 C cheese (cheddar is our favorite)
Add any other fixings you enjoy!
Place ingredients on warm tortilla and roll burrito style. We place ours in aluminum foil and freeze because ours are reheated in the oven. If you are using a microwave to reheat I would place on wax paper or freezer paper and freeze. When you are reheating I would remove the paper and nuke for no more than 2 mins. If you are reheating in an oven I would take the burrito out the night before and cook in the morning in the foil for 12-15 mins at 350 degrees. If you forget to take it out the night before it can take 30 mins to cook at 400...which means it is no longer a quick breakfast!
