Breakfast Burrittos on the Go

19 Jun


I love sausage, scrambled eggs, cheese, hashbrowns, salsa and tortillas.  So it is no wonder that I love breakfast burritos.  I have seen many recipes for these and have just added a little of each and I can say that I have probably made them different every time I make them.  I use what is on hand and what I am in the mood for.  These are so good for making ahead and freezing.  Grab one and throw it in the microwave before you leave in the morning and you have a great breakfast.  Grab a snack cup from yesterday’s post and you have it made.  I will give the basic recipe and then give some options to add.  You really cannot mess these up.


  • 1 pound Breakfast Sausage
  • 12 whole Eggs
  • Chopped Chives, to tasteSeasoned Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese
  • Flour Tortillas

Preparation Instructions

Brown a pound of your favorite kind of breakfast sausage. Drain off the fat.

In a bowl, whisk together a dozen eggs (adjust according to your needs), chopped chives, seasoned salt, black pepper and about 1 cup of  cheese. If you are feeling saucy add some cayenne pepper or Tabasco sauce for a little more of a kick.

Once your sausage is browned and drained, pour the egg/cheese mixture over the sausage. Cook over low heat and turn them occasionally to cook.

When fully cooked throw some into a nice warm tortilla, wrap it up and, if they need to be kept warm for a bit, wrap them individually in sheets of foil. If making them ahead, I wrap in saran wrap and freeze. They can be microwaved right out of the freezer.

Some things I like to add:

Hashbrowns–just brown and add to the sausage

Pico de Galo




Onions–cooked with the sausage


These are also great for a breakfast buffet, wrapped individually in foil to keep warm.

As a side note–if you want to make these more weight watcher friendly- make them with low fat turkey sausage, eggwhites or eggbeaters, weight watchers low fat cheese, spinach, tomatoes and onions.  Can hardly tell the difference
