Mcdonald's Breakfast Burritos

Years ago, while in high school, I worked at McDonald's when they first came out with these wonderful creations. It has been many years and I still love to make them. I think they have changed it over the years for the dollar menu but this is the ORIGINAL recipe. Sometimes when I don't have fresh tomatoes I substitute a little salsa or some drained Rotel tomatoes.

I've always loved McDonald's Breakfast burritos & was pleasantly surprised to find these really do taste very similar. I used 1 entire pound of sausage & 1 can of drained, diced tomatoes instead of the fresh, otherwise I followed all instructions (this gave me 12 nicely-packed burritos). Even more surprisingly, they taste BETTER the next day AND they freeze well (zip em in the microwave for about 90 secs & you'll have a quicker-than-fast food breakfast!)! Thanks Jenny...I'll be making these regularly!!! :)

I've been looking for the real McCoy! Thanks for posting this. These are great and it's the AMERICAN cheese that really makes these what they are!

These taste just like the real thing! I found the directions clear and easy to follow, and the results were very tasty. A great idea for a kid's sleepover party breakfast.
