    AmyZoe's Note:

    This recipe is a keeper--one I will make again. It was so good I wanted to eat long after I was full. Definitely the best breakfast burrito I've ever had. Recipe courtesy of The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook. Feel free to substitute andouille, kielbasa, or hot Italian sausage for the chorizo sausage.
