Sausage Breakfast Burritos
Who else has people to quickly get out the door in the morning? While I don’t have kids at home anymore, I still have a husband to feed in the mornings. Having these great made ahead of time Sausage Breakfast Burritos is the perfect solution to the busyness that seems to be everyone’s life these days.
When we lived in China, food was a huge issue for us because, quite frankly, we did not like a lot of the food there. I could find ingredients to buy, although most were pretty unfamiliar, but they helped me to make almost everything we ate. That and Pinterest if I’m being honest.
When I saw familiar ingredients in the store, like butter, cheese or tortillas, I stocked up because they most likely wouldn’t be there the next time I went to the store. I’m sure people thought I was nuts buying 20 pounds of butter at a time, but that’s what you do when you live in a rural area in China. I say rural, there was 16 million people in the city, but it was not at all up to the same level of city as Bejing or almost all of the other places we visited.
One of the things I made pretty regularly were these Sausage Breakfast Burritos. I could get the lady who I bought my meat from to grind up a bunch of pork and I flavored it to make sausage. We made our salsa from scratch, so I used that too. I usually made a whole bunch and froze them and then just thawed out 2 in the refrigerator the night before. Such an easy option for breakfast.
Here in Martinique, I’m able to find all of the ingredients for these burritos very easily. However, my husband doesn’t really like the salsa I bought, so I think I will have to go back to homemade. It’s a little sweet instead of spicy. I hope you love these.
- 8 burrito size tortillas
- 1 lb sausage, cooked and crumbled
- 2 cups shredded cheese
- 8 eggs, scrambled
- 1½ cup salsa
- Cook your sausage and eggs throughly.
- Lay out 8 pieces of plastic wrap on the counter and place a tortilla on each one.
- Spread the eggs down the middle of each tortilla, dividing evenly.
- Add the sausage on the eggs, dividing evenly.
- Spread the cheese on the eggs, dividing evenly.
- Add the salsa on the cheese, dividing evenly, ensuing you stay on the cheese so you don't get a soggy tortilla.
- Wrap the tortilla, top and bottom in first, one side over the filling and roll. (see photos)
- Wrap each burrito in plastic wrap.
- Freeze or if you're eating them within a couple of days, refrigerate.
- Thaw in the refrigerator.
- To serve, unwrap the burrito, wrap in a damp paper towel and microwave about 2 minutes, turning over after 1 minute. Do NOT heat in plastic wrap.
- ***Tip: If you're freezing the burritos, put them in a plastic zip top bag to make sure they don't get freezer burn.***
