Hearty Breakfast Burritos
My two favorite foods come together in this yummy breakfast recipe: Mexican and breakfast! These breakfast burritos are scrumptious, thanks to the savory sausage, gooey Hiland Dairy Cheese, fluffy scrambled eggs and flavorful veggies all wrapped up nicely in warm tortillas.
- 1 (10-ounce) roll breakfast sausage
- 2 tablespoons Hiland Dairy Unsalted Butter, divided
- 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
- 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
- 1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
- 8 large eggs
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup Hiland Dairy Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- 1 package tortillas, burrito-sized
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Salsa, optional
In a pan over medium heat, cook the breakfast sausage until cooked through, crumbling into small pieces. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
In the same pan, melt one tablespoon of butter over medium heat and sauté the bell peppers and onions until soft. Season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Transfer to the same bowl as the sausage.
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with the water. Season with salt and pepper.
Melt one tablespoon of butter in the same pan over low heat. Pour the eggs into the pan and cook until light and fluffy.
Remove from heat and immediately add the cheese, sausage and veggies. Toss slightly to mix until the cheese is melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Fill up a tortilla with the egg mixture. Roll up like a burrito, top with salsa and enjoy every bite!
You can freeze these breakfast burritos for later! Individually wrap them in plastic wrap, put them in a resealable freezer bag, and store them for later.
