Sausage, Egg and Cheese Burritos

Servings – 8 Prep Time – 4 Minutes Cook Time – 25 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 1 pound breakfast sausage, or 8 precooked sausage sandwich patties

  • 10 eggs, beaten together

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 8 flour tortillas

  • 2 cups shredded colby jack cheese

  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided

  • Salsa for garnish

  • Sour cream for dipping


Crumble and cook the sausage in a large skillet until brown. Drain grease, place sausage on paper towel-lined plate, cover and set aside. If using precooked patties, brown in large skillet cook until heated through.

In a medium bowl crack in 10 eggs, add milk, salt and pepper.

In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter, pour in beaten egg mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, until mostly set and no longer runny.

Stir in sausage, then remove from heat.


Add an 1/8 of the egg and sausage mixture to the middle of a tortilla, top with some cheese, fold in sides of tortilla, fold over bottom closest to you, and roll upwards away from you.

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter on a griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Place burrito in pan, and cook for about 1 minute per side or until golden brown.

Repeat process until all burritos are made, and serve immediately with salsa and sour cream for dipping.

Great with a side of fruit of a fruit and yogurt parfait!
