Fun Recipe

I made these this morning for seminary and was reminded of just how yummy they are. My kids like them, I just don't often get one of my own, so I haven't tasted one in a while. The seminary kids seemed to really like them, too. They are awesome to keep in the freezer for instant breakfasts-a great homemade alternative to pop tarts, etc.

Breakfast Burritos (This recipe doubles, triples or quadruples easily if you happen to be cooking for 24 teens)

6 eggs, beaten

½ lb. sausage, cooked, crumbled, drained on paper towel

¼ cup salsa

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

10 flour tortillas

1 Scramble eggs in a large skillet. Add sausage, salsa and cheese.
2 Warm tortillas in microwave for 20-30 seconds or until warm and flexible.
3 Place a scant ½ cup egg mixture in each tortilla; roll burrito-style.
4 Place in ziploc bag with cooking instructions and freeze (or eat immediately).
5 Cooking instructions: Cook in microwave until heated through, about 2 minutes. OR Thaw, wrap in tin foil or place in covered glass pan and bake 350° for 10 minutes.

Cooking Tips
Jazz them up by adding green onions or chopped onion, chopped tomato, shredded potatoes or hashbrowns, jalapeno slices or whatever else your family loves.

  1. I should make a quadruple batch of these so Jake will stop going to McDonalds before work!

  4. That's the same recipe I've used - my family loves them! I haven't made them for a while so thanks for reminding me, I need to put them back in the rotation!:)

  5. Nobody loves a breakfast burrito like my Teensy. It's funny because she claims not to like scrambled eggs, but she loves a good breakfast burrito. Thanks for sharing a new recipe.
