Easy Breakfast Burritos

11 Nov

I love cooking and coming up with my own recipes. Here’s a really easy recipe I came up with that would be great for college students who may only have a microwave to cook in, or anyone who doesn’t have time to prepare an elaborate breakfast in the morning. And it’s so simple, you may find yourself making these breakfast burritos a breakfast staple in your home! This recipe yields two breakfast burritos.

This simple breakfast burrito recipe uses few ingredients and is so simple to make, you'll be making them all the time!

Flour tortillas – 2
Brown n’ serve sausage – 2 sausage patties
Eggs – 2
Cheese – any kind you like, 2 slices or enough shredded cheese for 2 tortillas
Milk (optional)
Salt and pepper (optional)

Before you start making these, get all your ingredients out for ease of preparation.

1. Crack open the eggs in a small bowl and mix them up well as if you
were making scrambled eggs, as that is essentially what you’ll be doing. I like to add a teaspoon or so of milk and salt and pepper in with the eggs for flavor/texture, but this is entirely optional. Make sure the eggs are completely mixed – i.e. no whole yolks.

2. Put the bowl in the microwave and check it/stir it every thirty seconds – a minute. When the eggs are no longer liquidy, they are done.

3. Get out two Brown n’ serve sausage patties – I use the original ones but it doesn’t matter what kind you use – and wrap them in a paper towel or put them on a microwave safe plate and cook them for 2 – 3 minutes. Lower wattage microwaves = more cooking time.

4. Arrange two flour tortillas on a microwave safe plate and microwave for about 10-15 seconds or until soft.

This is how you should fill your burrito. After filling, simply roll, fold the ends in and enjoy!

5. When cool, break up sausage patties into pieces and put one patty on each tortilla, in the center of the tortilla.

6. Put half of the egg mixture on each tortilla.

7. Tear each slice of cheese into thin strips and place one slice of cheese on each tortilla. I like to use Borden’s Sharp Cheese. If you used shredded cheese, sprinkle on as much cheese as desired.

8. Roll up the tortilla making sure to fold in the ends so your delicious fillings don’t fall out! I like to put the finished tortilla in the microwave for a few seconds so the cheese melts somewhat, but this is optional.
