Eggs, Sausage and Cheese are a perfect breakfast, but when wrapped in a tortilla shelf they can make early morning so much better! I started making these breakfast burritos when I was in graduate school while working full time. I needed a needed a nutritious breakfast that could be made during a meal prepping section and was quick to reheat. Enjoy with fresh fruit and a dipping sauce of either salsa, taco sauce or maybe some Ranch.
(1) 16oz package of ground seasoned breakfast sausage.
1 ½ cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1 package of tortilla 10 ct
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 325°F
In a medium sized frying pan, brown ground seasoned breakfast sausage and set aside. The sausage that I used in the photos is a venison breakfast sausage that my family has in an abundance.
Whisk eggs and salt and pepper together. Add to the same frying pan that was used to brown the breakfast sausage. Scramble eggs on low heat until cooked through.
Now it is time for the burrito making process!!! This process can be challenging if you do not know how to roll a burrito. It took me many burritos to perfect it. Okay maybe not perfect… I still have a burrito or two that go rogue, but those suckers still taste just as good!
Lay out your tortilla on a clean flat surface.
Add approximately 1/8 c of cheese, browned breakfast sausage and eggs to tortilla a little off center in a straight line. This is shown in the picture of the cheese. I have made these burritos using different types of cheese such as (cheddar, pepper jack, colby jack and mozzarella) and they came out fantastic each time.
Fold the ends of the towards the center of the tortilla.
Then with the side closest to you fold way and tightly roll.
Place on to a baking sheet with seam down and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and the tortilla shell is just crispy.
These burritos can be frozen for up to 3 months. Just omit the baking step and place the baking sheet into a freezer for 1 hour or until frozen. Place into a freezer safe container or baggie. When ready to eat, wrap a damp paper towel around the burrito and place on a microwave safe plate. Microwave for 90 seconds or until hot.
