I saw a recipe for breakfast burritos on several other blogs and have wanted to try making these myself now for awhile. Because Kevin got his new job and I’m now busy running around like crazy in the morning s, getting the kiddos off to school, I was at the grocery this past Saturday and remembered to pick up the “goods” needed.
1. Roll of pork sausage
2. Small package of breakfast potatoes or hash browns
3. Package of small round tortillas
4. Eggs — I used about 8 but up to you as to how little/many you want.
5. Shredded cheese — I didn’t even use half a package
Cook the sausage.
Fry/fix the potatoes.
Cook the eggs
Combine these three ingredients in a bowl.
Lay out your burrito shells on a sheet or even just the counter and load some of the mixture into each one and then sprinkle some shredded cheese on top.
Roll these up and to be honest, maybe it was the shells that I bought, but mine didn’t initially roll up very pretty. But, as the mixture warmed up the shell a bit, they began to get a bit more flexible so that I could roll them a bit tighter as I put them into their bags, which I did two per bag.
I got 11 of these out of this mixture but probably could have gotten about 15. I had some extra mixture and so I just threw that in a rubbermaid container to eat the next morning for my breakfast. Yummy!
Throw all of these in the freezer. When you are ready to eat these, throw a package in the fridge the night before so that it thaws overnight. The next morning, take out of the package and heat in a microwave about 50 to 60 seconds and away you go!
I figured that I spent about $7.50 on all the ingredients and saying that I could get about 15 out of these, that’s 50 cents per burrito — Not bad!
