Simple Breakfast Burritos

Here's a fast, yummy meal for breakfast or dinner.  It's a great meal for Sunday night after church in our family when we want something warm in a hurry.  It's lighter, too, and doesn't leave you feeling stuffed, always good for summer meals.  Feel free to adjust it to your liking...add some veggies or drop out the sausage.  It's great either way.  I usually buy one pound of sausage and use half for this meal and half for biscuits and gravy at another time.  It's a great way to stretch the meat.

Simple Breakfast Burritos

8 flour tortillas
8 eggs
3 Tbs. milk
1/2 lb. breakfast sausage
salsa
grated cheese

Wrap the tortillas in a kitchen towel and microwave until warm through.  Whisk eggs and milk together.  Crumble breakfast sausage into frying pan and cook over medium high heat until browned.  Add a little butter or margarine here if your sausage isn't very fatty.  If there is melted fat in the pan, don't worry about it.  Add in the eggs and scramble until done.

To assemble, first spoon in the egg/sausage mixture.  Add salsa and grated cheese to taste.  Roll up and enjoy!

  2. Thanks for this idea. I made a version of these last night. I'll call them:

    Baked Breakfast Burritos
    I had 1/2 lb. sausage left over, some leftover rice and flower tortilla that were a little on the dry side. I scrambled 1/2 dozen eggs until they were just under done, then mixed in the sausage, rice, 1/2 jar salsa and about 2 and 1/2 inches velveeta. Then I warmed the mixture. After that, I spooned the now warm mixture into the tortilla, wrapped them and put them in a 9x13 pan. Then, to combat the too dry tortilla shells, I topped that with the other half of the salsa and topped with 1/2 bag leftover shredded taco style cheese. Baked at 350 degrees untill gooey and bubbley. YUM.
    Thanks for the idea!!!!

  4. By The Way: Even better re-heated for lunch. All the flavors mellowed and combined to make one awsome leftover lunch.

    Also, Big Brother wants me to freeze some and re-heat for his breakfasts. We'll see how that goes.
