Prepare hash browns according to package directions. Cut in half lengthwise.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add eggs. Scatter half of the bacon and chives over top.
Cover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until almost set. Sprinkle with half the cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook for an additional 2 minutes or until set and cheese is melted. Let stand covered while hash browns are baking.
Use a spatula to loosen omelette around the edges; slide omelette onto a cutting board and cut into 8 wedges.
To assemble burritos: Lay tortillas on a work surface. Top each tortilla with 2 egg wedges, a hash brown and 2 tbsp/30 ml sour cream. Divide remaining cheese, bacon and chives between burritos. Fold in and roll up tortillas to enclose. Serve immediately.
Burritos can be made ahead, wrapped parchment paper and layered in a re-sealable container. If making ahead, omit the sour cream and extra toppings until after burritos have been reheated. Store burritos in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for 1 month. For a quick grab and go, remove wrap and microwave burritos on HIGH for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until heated through. Carefully open burritos and sour cream and extra reserved toppings.
For an "ultimate" burrito experience, brush burritos with a little melted butter and place on a baking sheet. Top with extra grated cheese and bake at 350°F/180°C for 6 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Transfer to serving plates and garnish with extra sour cream, bacon bits and green onions.
For a Tex-Mex variation, add sliced avocado and salsa to the burrito before wrapping.
