In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels. Remove all but 1-2 tablespoons drippings from pan.

Whisk together eggs, salt and pepper. Heat skillet over medium heat; pour in egg mixture. Cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains; remove from heat.

Spoon about 1/4 cup egg mixture onto center of each tortilla; sprinkle with cheese, bacon and green onions. Roll into burritos.

Freeze option: Cool eggs before making burritos. Individually wrap burritos in paper towels and foil; freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bag. To use, remove foil; place paper towel-wrapped burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until heated through, turning once. Let stand 15 seconds.

Health Tip: Breakfast burritos can be a smart choice to start the day because they include a good amount of protein. Make these healthier: Use whole wheat tortillas, skip the bacon, reduce the cheese and add veggies.
