Breakfast Burritos

I have to admit I was leery of trying these breakfast burritos. I’m extremely picky about eggs. I prefer eggs when they’re baked into cupcakes, cheesecakes, cookies, etc. But sometimes I have to think past the sweets and look to the savory. Today is one of those times.

Cliff wanted to make these breakfast burritos and he swore they were good. It was his special creation inspired by the breakfast burrito he likes from McDonalds. I would neverrrr try one of those! But I bravely tried a homemade one. And it was surprisingly good. The egg was cheesy and the Italian sausage and taco sauce added a bit of spiciness to the burrito. It was MUCH tastier then I imagined it would be and I’m happy I tried it.

You can use any kind of sausage you want and your favorite types of pepper. We went with a red, green and yellow bell pepper because they add great color, and Kara happened to buy the 3-pack. I like having a recipe that can easily be altered to utilize ingredients you already have on hand. That’s definitely the case with this recipe…just use what you’ve got!

Here's what you'll need

Remove the sausage from its casing. We used hot italian sausage.

Crack 4 eggs

Add the chopped peppers and onions to the skillet

Cook it low and slow

Add a splash of heavy cream to your beaten eggs

Then season with salt and pepper

Now add the shredded sharp cheddar cheese, about a half cup or so

Now add the egg mixture to your skillet and continue to cook low and slow

Cook on low, stirrring occasionally

Roll the filling into flour tortillas, add some taco sauce and breakfast is served!

    This would be great for brunch when you’re having friends over, too, because you can make a big batch at one time just like you did. Hope you had some breakfast margaritas to go with them. 😉
