Breakfast Burritos

This used to be my kind of thing. I’d make stuff like this and freeze them once a week so our mornings were smoother and breakfast was always ready. This looks sooooo good and I love that you can put in them whatever you want to.

Breakfast Burritos

  • 12 eggs beaten
  • 1 lb bulk sausage, cooked (or crumbled links)
  • 1/2 cup chunky salsa (your choice of heat)
  • 24 flour tortillas (you can also use whole wheat)
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 green pepper, finely diced (optional)
  • 6 potatoes, shredded and fried until cooked through (optional) or 6 hash browns (optional)
  • jalapeno, slices (optional)
  • 1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chilies (optional)
  • 1  to 2 garlic cloves, finely minced (optional)
  • 1 onion, finely diced (optional)
  • 1 tomato, peeled and chopped (optional)
  • 2 green onions, sliced with tops (optional)

Scramble eggs in large skillet until done; stir in cooked sausage and salsa.

Warm tortillas in microwave 20-30 seconds or until warm and flexible.

Place 1/2 cup egg mixture into tortilla, sprinkle with cheese, then roll burrito-style.

Freeze burritos in single layer on lightly greased cookie sheet.

When fully frozen, wrap burritos individually; place wrapped burritos in large zip-top freezer bags; freeze.

TO SERVE: Unwrap burritos from foil or plastic wrap that you used for freezing.

Wrap in a paper towel.

Cook in microwave until heated through (about 2 minutes).

Or thaw burritos (remove plastic wrap if used in freezing), wrap burritos in foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

    We make these all the time, well something similar. I make this fried potato/egg/sausage stuff, and we put that into tortilla’s. With some hot sauce, it’s so good! Add in all those onions, garlic, jalapenos…Mmmm This sounds good! And cheese! I love cheese…

    Question, do you cook the potatoes first and fry them in oil in a skillet or in a deep-fryer?

    • Joy says:

      The potatoes have to be cooked first and you can cook them any way you want to. I wouldn’t deep fry them though. That’s so many extra calories.
