Bulk cooking: tortillas as food vehicles

I'm still around, but things have gotten busy here. 

In the meantime, I've still got to eat.  And here's a top from The Simple Dollar that's keeping me from buying Eggos:

Bulk breakfast burritos

In my case, the burritos are being filled with bars made from a bag of shredded frozen hashbrowns, eight eggs and a cup of cottage cheese.  Add plenty of pepper and bake the mixture  in a casserole until cooked through.  Allow to cool and slice into bars which then go into burritos (in our case, we're lucky and there's a whole-wheat variety that's relatively healthy and made fresh at the local grocery store).  Wrap in plastic or freeze individually and then store in a freezer-appropriate container (we use gallon-size freezer bags with a zip-top, and they can be reused easily.)

You can add:  beans, bacon, salsa, cheese... but the cottage cheese does a good job keeping it cheesy.

Thanks, Simple Dollar!
