🧂 Ingredients Needed
- sausage - adds some hearty protein and smoky flavor.
- frozen hash browns - I like to use hash browns with onions and peppers for pops of color and taste, but any frozen hash browns will work.
- cheddar cheese - get nice and melty and fuse everything together with cheesy goodness.
- eggs - super filling and good for you, eggs are a must for any breakfast burrito!
- milk - gives the eggs a nice fluffy consistency.
- salt and pepper - to taste.
- tortillas - for wrapping up your burritos, great for on-the go!
- Place the hash browns in the bottom of a slow cooker prepared with nonstick spray.
- Top with browned sausage.
- Add a layer of cheddar cheese.
- To a large bowl, add eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.
- Whisk until combined.
- Pour egg mixture into the slow cooker.
- Cover, then cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 2-3.
- Once cooked, spoon burrito filling onto tortillas in 8 even portions.
- Fold the tortillas over and serve immediately, or freeze for later!
Absolutely! If you're serving a fancy brunch or breakfast or want to allow people to serve themselves, leave the crock pot on its warmest setting to keep the burrito filling warm.
If your filling is runny, it could mean you've added too much milk to the eggs, or it may just need more time to cook. Try to avoid excess moisture from other ingredients--for example, drain the sausage after cooking and before adding to the crock pot.
Pair your burritos with fresh fruit or your favorite smoothie, a glass of juice, or even more potatoes! For brunch, you can also pair them with chips and salsa or guacamole.
💭 Expert Tips and Tricks
- To fold slow cooker breakfast burritos so they stay sealed, there's a simple trick. Fold one end of the tortilla over the filling, then tuck in the sides before you start to roll it. Keep the sides tucked and folded in as you go, and you'll end up with a perfectly sealed burrito that won't fall apart in your hands!
- These make-ahead burritos are great to prepare right before you go to bed. You'll wake up to a delicious aroma and slow cooker burritos completely ready to serve!
📌 Crock pot burritos are a fantastic option for your next special occasion breakfast or brunch, or any time you want something a little different for breakfast. Completely customizable and always delicious!
💡 Substitutions and Variations
- Switch up the ingredients for your burrito filling! Use cooked bacon or ham instead of sausage, mozzarella or gruyere cheese instead of cheddar, or whatever your favorite breakfast options might be!
- You can also add additional seasonings to the egg mixture to pack your burritos with extra flavor. Paprika, garlic powder, and red peppers flakes are some of my favorites.
- For a little bit of extra zing, drizzle hot sauce over your tortilla before adding the filling and rolling.
⏲️ Make Ahead Instructions
These burritos are excellent to make ahead and freeze so you can quickly reheat for breakfast throughout the week. Roll each tortilla, wrap in parchment paper, and store in a sealable plastic bag in the freezer
To reheat your slow cooker breakfast burritos from frozen, allow to thaw in the fridge overnight. The best way to reheat is to pop a burrito the oven at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes, but you can also use your air fryer or microwave for even faster reheating.
