The Best Breakfast Burrito

September 13, 2013

Breakfast burritos are a quick and easy morning meal.  Eggs are scrambled with sausage, red bell pepper, onions and cheese before being wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla.  For a vegetarian version, omit the sausage and opt for soy chorizo and slices of avocado instead.  This is a satisfying breakfast that is guaranteed to jump start your morning.

6 whole wheat tortillas
6 Eggland's Best eggs (large)
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 sausage link
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup sour cream, fat-free
1/2 cup salsa


Set oven temperature to 200 degrees F; arrange tortillas on a baking sheet and warm in the oven until ready to serve.

In a large skillet sprayed with non-stick olive oil spray, saute diced onion & bell peppers until soft.  Remove from heat and set aside.

Remove casing from sausage and crumble into the same skillet; cook according to package instructions, remove and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix eggs with salt & pepper; pour into skillet and stir, cooking until eggs are firmly set.  Remove from heat when cooked through.

To assemble your burritos, spread a thin layer of sour cream on each tortilla and top with even amounts of all ingredients: eggs, peppers & onions, sausage, cheddar cheese, and salsa.  Roll and serve.
