My wife and I love eating Mexican so I came up with this recipe so that we could have a little more variety in our morning meals. We are busy people and don't have time to make elaborate meals in the morning. In the past we have bought frozen breakfast burritos, but they are not very tasty and I knew they could be improved upon. This recipe will make a large batch of the burrito fixins that you can freeze, or store in the refrigerator so that you can make great breakfast burritos whenever you please.

Instructions Checklist

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and stir in the sausage and garlic. Cook and stir for 5 minutes, then add the onion. Continue cooking and stirring until the sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Combine the sausage with the eggs, tomato, cilantro, jalapeno, and taco seasoning. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature, then stir in the Cheddar cheese.

  • Place a tortilla onto your work surface, then spoon some of the filling halfway between the bottom edge and the center of the tortilla. Flatten the filling into rectangle shape with the back of a spoon. Fold the bottom of the tortilla snugly over the filling, then fold in the left and right edges. Roll the burrito up to the top edge, forming a tight cylinder. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

  • Tightly wrap individual burritos with plastic wrap and freeze until ready to serve. Heat in the microwave until hot, 3 to 4 minutes, before serving.

Breakfast burritos are awesome and pretty much contain every food group! They can be made ahead of time and are perfect for on the go. I cut the recipe way back because I didn't need quite that many and made my own taco seasoning. I added some crumbed bacon and diced green pepper plus a mix of cheddar and jack cheeses. You can add pretty much anything you want or have on hand because once you combine meat, scrambled eggs and cheese in a warm tortilla it's bound to be good. All you need is a side of salsa, sour cream, a little tabaso or cholula and you're in breakfast heaven! Read More

Hubbie exclaimed "Yowza!" when on the way out the door to work in his typical grab-for-granola-bar I placed one of THESE in his hand instead. In his words caveman-style b/t bites "Ev.Er.Ey.Day.Me.Wantie." I scaled the recipe back not expecting the elated response and added some bell peppers and instead of fresh tomato I used a drained can of Rotel. Also we eschew taco packets in this house since having discovered "Taco Seasoning I" recipe on here so I used 1 TB of that. Just the right kick and really tasty. Read More

Totally awesome. I kept to the recipe as best I could only using a "taco" mix of cheese I bought on sale at Grocery Outlet a few days earlier and I used a homemade taco seasoning. I garnished these with homemade salsa and FF sour cream. We all ate the heck out of these. There was a little leftover so I just assembled it and wrapped them up for a late night snack for my husband. YUM. It really makes a ton which is a blessing for me because my three boys can EAT. You saved my behind this morning Norman. I swear this whole meal didn't cost me any more than five bucks. Read More

I made this recipe for my family last weekend and they loved it. I didn't use cilantro or jalapenios but did use turkey sausage light mexican cheese and low fat tortillas. They were delicious and less calories. Will make again. Read More

I'm in college and this is a PERFECT easy morning dish. I can make a big batch over the weekend and eat it all the next week rinse and repeat! Not to mention it tastes AMAZING too;) Edit: I did leave out the cilantro (I'm not too fond of the flavor) and the jalapenos (I didn't have any) and just added a little more taco seasoning. Read More

I love love love this recipe! Very flavorful and simple to make. Perfect on the go breakfast. I make this recipe as stated except one substitution. Instead of the onion tomato cilantro and jalapeño... I use 1 can of Rotel (the kind with lime juice and cilantro)! It is delicious and makes this easy recipe even easier! Try it- your family will love this! Read More
