In our house, breakfast is usually the meal that gets skipped. The reason is because I just don’t have the time to get up and fix a hearty breakfast for my family. They all have busy lives and because of that, none of us stop to take the time to eat breakfast.
This past week I found El Monterey Breakfast Burritos at Walmart. Oh, my, heavens…they are delicious and perfect for my family ~in this case… mom wins!
Now, there are some things that I have discovered that make breakfast time easier. I have been trying really hard to implement these so that my family gets that most important meal of the day.
3 Quick Tips for a Delicious and Easy Breakfast
1. Buy pre-cooked meals and store them in the freezer
I bought the 12 pack of El Monterey egg, sausage and cheese breakfast burritos because my family loves to eat burritos and this way I have enough for several mornings and right now there is a $1 off coupon to use when purchasing a multi-pack.
Each burrito is individually wrapped which means I don’t have to worry about freezer burn and I can get out exactly as many as I need. They are a great source of protein and are made with REAL scrambled eggs….no powdered ones here!
2. Serve your breakfast meal with fruit
Fruit is a good way to bump up the flavor of any breakfast. With my burritos, I added some fresh blackberries and a glass of orange juice. It basically took me about 2 minutes to put a scrumptious breakfast on the table.
The El Monterey Breakfast Burritos cook in the microwave in 1 minute and 30 seconds and then you’ll need to let them sit for 2 minutes, so in 3 minutes and 30 seconds you have breakfast. It takes me longer than that to make bacon and eggs!
Ruiz Foods’ line of El Monterey Signature Breakfast Burritos are packed with real ingredients like scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and sausage wrapped in fresh-baked flour tortillas. They are available in five flavors and three different sizes, including single-serve, 4-count and 12-count.

3. Lay out your breakfast items the night before
By preparing a menu, you can cut down on prep time in the morning by assembling and getting things ready for the next day. That way, you are not searching for more and more and running out of time the next morning when everything seems to be hectic.
What about you? What makes your mornings less hectic? What is your favorite breakfast?
