National Burrito Day


Today is "National Burrito Day," so that means all things beef, cheese and tortillas! Burritos are such an easy and fast meal to whip up, and we're all about fast and easy cooking here at Together Farms. To make burritos even better, they are a great make-ahead freezer food! So we decided to give you two recipes for make-ahead freezer burritos in spirit of National Burrito Day. We've been hearing some of the great ways our customers have been using our Bacon-Onion Jam, and coincidentally you've been using it on breakfast and lunch burritos already! So we included it in the ingredients for the lunch/dinner burrito recipe, but you might want to also add it to the breakfast burrito recipe to start your days off right. (who can ever have too much bacon?)


Sausage & Bacon Breakfast Freezer Burritos


bfast-166x300.jpg


INGREDIENTS: 

8 (or more) slices Together Farms Bacon

1 cup (or more) of Together Farms Breakfast Sausage

2 tablespoons Lard (to replace olive oil)

1 bag frozen potatoes (country hash browns)

12 large eggs (whisked with a splash of milk)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 green bell pepper, diced

1 yellow bell pepper, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

2 cups shredded cheese

16 flour tortillas (substitute corn or rice tortillas for gluten free)

16 pieces of foil to wrap


INSTRUCTIONS: 

  1. Thoroughly cook and crumble both breakfast sausage (1 cup or more if wanted) and bacon (8 slices, or let's be real more than that for extra bacon).
  2. In a large bowl whisk 12 large eggs with a splash of milk. 
  3. Heat a large skilled over medium-high heat with the lard. Add the potatoes and stir occasionally until they are browned. 
  4. Add the eggs and cook while stirring until the scramble is no longer runny. Add salt and pepper to taste. 
  5. Heat a small skillet over medium heat and cook the bell peppers until they are soft.
  6. While cooking the bell peppers warm up the tortillas so they are easily bendable.
  7. Fill each tortilla with some of the potato and egg mixture then top with as much bacon, breakfast sausage, peppers and cheese was wanted. Roll into a tight burrito, wrap in foil and allow to cool down. 
  8. Once cool store in freezer until ready to eat!
  9. When ready to eat remove from foil and wrap in a paper towel (some prefer a slightly damp paper towel to ensure the burrito doesn't dry out) and microwave for 90 seconds to 20 minutes depending on the strength of your microwave.



Beef, Potatoes & Bacon-Onion Jam Freezer Burritos


39b257cbc4dbbf6a01e544c987bfc7ee-300x168.jpg


INGREDIENTS: 

2lbs (32 oz) Together Farms Taco Meat (Mild or Spicy)

16oz Together Farms Bacon-Onion Jam

3 potatoes, peeled and diced - shredded cheddar cheese (as much as you want)

15 flour tortillas (substitute corn or rice tortillas for gluten free)

8 oz Together Farms Rendered Lard (for frying)

15 pieces of foil to wrap


INSTRUCTIONS: 

1. Make sure taco meat is thawed enough to be broken up - Together Farms Taco Meat is pre-made and frozen when it arrives to you, so you don't need to cook the meat or completely let it thaw. You just want the meat to be thawed enough to break apart and put into separate burritos.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with the rendered lard. When lard and pan is hot add the diced potatoes and fry until golden (or to your taste). You might have to brown your potatoes in batches. When done cooking drain potatoes and salt/season to taste. 

Warm up tortillas while your potatoes are cooling - you want the tortillas to be bendable so you can fold them around your filling. 

When ingredients are cool enough (but tortilla is still warm enough to bend) place your taco meat and potatoes on the tortilla then top with shredded cheese and Bacon-Onion Jam. You can do all tortillas at once to be sure you have even amounts throughout.

Fold in the sides of the tortilla and wrap. 

Wrap your burrito in foil and freeze until ready to eat!

When ready to eat remove from foil and wrap in a paper towel (some prefer a slightly damp paper towel to ensure the burrito doesn't dry out) and microwave for 90 seconds to 20 minutes depending on the strength of your microwave.


Make sure to send us pictures of your burritos, and let us know what you think of the recipes! You can always request recipes from us directly or you can post in our Facebook group Together Farms: Let's Connect! and see what the community might have to offer.
