One of the things neither my husband nor I do very well is eat a proper breakfast before work in the morning. This leaves us starving by 10am and tempted by the pastries so conveniently located at each of our favourite coffee shops. While I decided not to make any resolutions this year I did decide to drink more water and start focussing on my health. Part of being healthy is eating breakfast (at least that's what moms all over the world have been saying for eternity) and with a little bit of prep and assembly breakfast goes from easier to skip to super easy with these yummy Freezable Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burritos.
Simply saute peppers and onion.
Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper.
Add egg and milk mixture and cook.
Remove from heat and add sliced fully cooked sausage (I use scissors for simplicity).
Scoop sausage and egg mixture onto tortilla.
Add salsa (if using).
Fold other side.
Wrap in saran wrap and toss into a freezer bag to freeze.
Non-stick cooking spray (I used Pam)
1 pepper, cut into pieces
1 small onion, cut into pieces
1/3 cup milk
Salt/pepper to taste
Dash Tabasco (optional)
6 pre-cooked breakfast sausage (I used 1/2 package of Maple Leaf Fully Cooked Sausage), cut into bite sized pieces
10 small tortillas (I used whole wheat)
1 1/2 cups cheese (I used Kraft Reduced Fat Double Cheddar)
1 cup salsa (optional)
Spray saute pan with non-stick cooking spray. Add onion and peppers and saute until softened (approx. 2-3 minutes).
In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt, pepper and Tabasco (if using).
Add to saute pan and saute until fully cooked stirring often (think scrambled eggs).
Remove from heat and add sausage.
Scoop 1/10th of mixture into middle of tortilla, add 1/10th of cheese and 1/10th of salsa (if using).
Fold and roll each tortilla as pictured above.
Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Let burritos cool completely then wrap in saran wrap, put all burritos into large freezer bag and freeze.
When ready to eat unwrap burrito from saran wrap, wrap in paper towel and microwave for 1 1/2 -2 1/2 minutes (depending on how powerful your microwave is).
NOTE: I usually stop the microwave half-way through cooking and turn the burrito over then continue cooking.
REDUCE: Looking to reduce the fat and calorie content? Use egg whites and cooked turkey bacon instead.
BONUS: These actually make a quick dinner too when served with a salad.
