Breakfast Burritos

There isn't really an exact recipe for these. It all depends on what flavors you are going for. For my kids, they just like eggs and sausage. I brought these to a family potluck. I added onions and cilantro to the basic egg/sausage combination. However you decide to dress these up, they make for interesting spin off from the classic egg.

  • flour tortillas - I prefer the uncooked ones from Costco (you cook them of course though to make the burritos)
  • sausage - I chop up the pre-cooked breakfast sausage links.
  • eggs
  • cheese - this could be another spin off for differing flavor combinations. Cheddar, Monterey, Pepper jack, Swiss, Parmesan, feta, whatever floats your boat.
  • Salt and pepper for the eggs.
  • Optional additions (cilantro, peppers, broccoli, pico di gallo, hot sauce, etc.)

1. Cook the tortillas if using uncooked tortillas.
2. Cook the sausage if you are not using pre-cooked.
3. Quip up a batch of scrambled eggs, using as many eggs as you will need for the quantity of burritos you want to make. One egg makes 1-2 burritos depending on how full you stuff it, and how many other mix ins you have.
4. Assemble the burritos by placing 1/4 cup eggs in a line in the center of the tortilla. Sprinkle on desired amount of sausage and other flavor enhancers.

I placed my burritos in a 9x13 dish to keep warm in the oven until we were ready to eat.

I love to make these up in the summer and freeze them...Makes for a quick and easy breakfast! Just wrap each in waz paper then put in a freezer bag. Pull out one at a time and microwave for 2 minutes , rotating. They are good!

We have breakfast burritos a few times a week. Minus the sausage. I'll have to add that in and see how it goes over.
These were sooo yummy. So glad you posted them.
