Sausage and Egg - breakfast burritos

    Sausage and Egg breakfast burritos

   This is by far one of my favorite recipes and my most requested. I haven't shared this one yet and when I was making up a batch of these for my co-workers I knew it was time to share. These are easy and I have only ever made them 12 or more at a time so I don't know what the measurements would be for less. I do know you can freeze these and heat them back up so this would be a great freezer meal for quick breakfasts. 


Ingredients *(makes 8-12)

Eggs (1 Dozen)

1 roll of sausage (I ALWAYS use Bob Evans Zesty Hot)

2 small cans of diced green chiles 

2 packs of large tortillas (I use Mission)         

 

1 large bag of Colby Jack shredded cheese 

1/4 cup of skim milk *(you can use what ever percent of milk you have in the fridge)

1 tsp of salt and pepper

1/2 tbsp of butter or margarine

 Directions:

Brown the sausage and drain, place in a mixing bowl to cool. Add both cans of green chiles. 

                             

Put the eggs into a bowl and scramble them with a fork or a whisk-You want to make sure your egg yolks are broken. Add 1/4 of milk and the 1/2 tsp of salt and pepper. In the same pan you cooked the sausage melt the 1/2 tbsp of butter.

 Keep mixing the eggs until they are scrambled and cooked well. Add the eggs to the bowl with the sausage and chiles. Toss so all three ingredients are well mixed. You don't want big chunks of either ingredient so make sure it breaks up as you mix.

                      

                     

Tear off foil ahead of time so that you can wrap the burritos as you make them. 

Step 1: Take a pinch of cheese and place on the tortilla (Not in the middle but not to close to an edge)

Step 2: I use a large serving spoon to measure the amount of mix in each tortilla. You don't want to overfill or the tortilla will tear.

Step 3:  Fold in the edges and roll until burrito is wrapped tightly. 

 

Step 4 : Wrap in piece of foil and either freeze it, put in fridge or heat for breakfast.

This is a very easy recipe and depending on your love of spicy you may want to use normal Bob Evan's sausage. The zesty hot is perfect in that it adds a kick to your breakfast without it being to hot. 

Make these for your next family event and people will love them. I make these for Christmas morning and have made them for work many times. Its also nice to have them to grab and go when you are in a hurry.

You can make these healthy by using egg whites, whole wheat tortillas and turkey sausage!
