Easy Breakfast Burrito's

My husband is in love with these breakfast burritos. He eats them for a quick breakfast in the morning and says they make a great lunch too. They are great for camping and great for a quick on-the-go snack. 

I love how easy they are to make. Cheap too. Here's how you do it:

You'll need:
1 lbs breakfast sausage
3-4 large potatoes
5-6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
10 tortillas
1 cup cheddar cheese
green bell pepper (optional) 
onion (optional)

First you're going to start off by browning the sausage.

Make sure and season the sausage with salt and pepper. My family won't eat the peppers and onions, but if yours will, now is the time to dice them up and brown them with the sausage.

While the sausage is cooking, start washing and peeling your potatoes. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 

Dice the potatoes into small bite sized pieces. Then you'll smooth your potatoes in a single layer onto a cookie sheet. Pour some EVOO over all of them. Here's my favorite from Trader Joe's! 

Season the potatoes too. Use whatever you have on hand. I happen to have some of the best seasoning in the whole wide world for my potatoes.... Jack Stack All Purpose Rub !

Place the potatoes in the oven for 20 minutes, or until tender. 

After the sausage is done cooking - drain the oil of of it. 

Now for the eggs. 

Crack 5 to 6 eggs and add your milk then shake them up, I like to use my Tupperware Quick Shake .

I use the biggest, deepest pan I have to cook the eggs. Cook the eggs until they are about three fourths of the way done. After the eggs are done - throw everyone in the pool. Then add the drained sausage and cooked potatoes in the pan. Cook on medium for about five minutes. Stir well to make sure everything gets browned a little more.

Add a cup of cheddar cheese - or whatever kind of cheese you have on hand. 

Stir everything up really well. This is going to be your last chance to season the dish, so make sure and give yourself a taste at this point to make sure it's yummy. If your family likes spice - add some cayenne pepper or Cajun seasoning. 

Now it's time to get rollin'!

Using a 1/3 cup, start filling the tortilla's with an over-flowing cup.

Then roll them up by tucking and folding. Then you'll wrap each on in a paper towel. 

After your done with all 10 tortillas, you'll go back and wrap each on in plastic wrap.

Once I'm done wrapping up all the burritos - I put them into one larger freezer bag and stick them in the freezer. These don't do well to heat from frozen, it's best to let them sit out in the refrigerator overnight first. 

When you heat up the burritos, you'll remove the plastic wrap but leave on the paper towel. You'll cook each one for about 2-3 minutes. Serve with your favorite salsa and sour cream.

And enjoy! 

Note: If you wanted to make these into a lower fat version, you could use turkey sausage, low fat cheese and whole wheat tortillas.
