Reheating refrigerated breakfast burritos

by Kelley
(Elk City, Oklahoma)

I'm making breakfast burritos for all the oilfield men in my community. I've refrigerated some leftovers that are still wrapped tightly in foil n taped shut.

I need to know if I can reheat these safely in the morning in the oven until heated through so I can put them in the insulated bags I have to keep hot food hot each morning. I was careful to refrigerate the leftovers right away.

I just don't have room in my freezer- and I can't afford to take the foil off n replace it after if I were to use the microwave. Also if I can use my oven I can reheat say 25 at once uniformly.

A: Hi Kelley,
Of course you could use the oven. Just spread them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake until warm.

Try 350 for 7-10 minutes (since they are not frozen) then stick a knife or toothpic through the center of one of the ones in the middle of the oven to be sure it's warm. Once you know how long it takes in your oven you won't have to put holes in them anymore, it's just to check.

Also, if they start to get too brown you can put a piece of foil over them. You can fold up the foil at the end and reuse it if you need to.

Hope that helps,
Michelle

I premade 45 breakfast burritos in order to sell for a charity and was wondering the best way to reheat them when I came across this article.

I ended up putting 15 foil wrapped burritos directly on the oven rack at 350 degrees for 25 minutes to heat them through.

All in all it took me about an hour and a half (including preheat time) to heat up all the burritos. Your article gave me a great starting point. Thank you.

Reheating Burritos
by: Texas oilfield

My dad was also in oilfield when my sisters and I were teens and wanted spending money so we did 200 burritos a day!

We would reheat foil wrapped (no tape) burritos in the oven, just poke 2 holes ( with a skewer) in each to release steam so tortillas don't get soggy. Don't completely heat, about 20 degrees shy, because when you pack them in cooler on top each other they continue to cook!
