These burritos are not just for breakfast, they are a great anytime snack, if you desire, these could be fully prepared, and stored in the fridge....just make sure to bake them 10-15 minutes longer, or they may be frozen, just thaw them before baking.

I made these for breakfast on our camping trip over Memorial Day weekend. I doubled the recipe and browned the sausage, froze it, and chopped the peppers before leaving. I cooked the hash browns and reheated the sausage with the peppers. I scrambled the eggs with the sausage and peppers and then added the hash browns. Everyone filled their own tortillas with the egg mixture and cheese. (We didn't have a oven) These were very hearty and filling. Everyone loved them and came back for seconds and thirds! Next time I make them at home I will try baking them in the oven. Thanks for posting.
Great burritos. I made them as directed except that I used red, green and orange peppers that I had on hand. I froze the rest of them for a quick meal for another day. Thanks Kitten for another great recipe.
These are SO yummy! My family just scarfed them up. We'll be making them again soon--and not just for breakfast, either!
