Recipe by Mrs. DeVelopment
After being inspired by many breakfast burrito recipes on Zaar, I came up with my own version. I didn't have a big enough pan for many of the other recipes! This still makes a lot! Adding crushed red pepper after you have rolled up your mild ones makes this a recipe for your whole family. I wrap the burritos up in wax paper and put them back in the tortilla bags since we go through them so fast...they NEVER last us a month! I make these every other week because we eat them almost every day. Hope you enjoy my version!

I thought this was very nice and tasty, and really handy to have in your freezer, rather than any store-bought concoction. You certainly an adjust the ingredients to your liking, but I like the inclusion of the Rotel tomatoes. I made all of mine spicy, because that is my preference. Thanks for sharing your version of this speedy and satisfying breakfast. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
- 32 (8 inch) flour tortillas
- 5 tablespoons margarine
- 1 lb breakfast sausage
- 2 dozen eggs
- 1 (10 ounce) can Rotel Tomatoes, drained
- 4 -5 potatoes, diced small I use russet and leave on the skins
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 lb cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, for spicy- (optional)
- 32 sheets wax paper
Directions See How It's Made
- In the largest frying pan you have, fry sausage until well done, I even like to get a few crispies going! Drain. You must drain it! Set aside and keep warm.
- In same pan, melt about 1 tbs butter/marg and cook onion. I like to turn up the heat so they brown quickly without becoming mushy. Add onions to sausage.
- In same pan, melt 4 tbs butter/marg and add in potaotes. Stir slightly to coat with butter/marg and cover. Cooking time will depend on the size of your "dices".
- While these are cooking, you can get your eggs ready. Crack them into large mixing bowl and whisk. Add salt & pepper to taste or whatever seasoning you prefer. Add in drained rotel tomatoes and set aside.
- After about 5 minutes, turn potatoes over and replace cover. When potatoes are no longer hard, remove lid and cook to let them crisp up. The crispier the better!
- When potatoes are desired crispness, add in the eggs. It will take a bit for the eggs to cook, but turn them occasionally, and when you think they are about 2/3 to 3/4 done cooking, add back in sausage and onion. Mix well and continue to cook. You can speed up the process by covering pan toward the end.
- Fill tortilla shells with mixture and add a little cheese on top. Roll up it up. You will get the hang of it! I place the wax paper like a diamond in front of me.
- When you have made about 16 burritos, you can add in the crushed red pepper if you want to make 1/2 of your batch spicy.
- Microwave on high for 1 minute, turn over and microwave for 1 minute more. It may take a little less or longer as microwaves vary.
