Breakfast Burrito #backtoschoolbreakfast

One of the most common symbols in the lives of all moms is the need to feed our families.  Packaged foods and take-out are ruining our health and it's hard to fight to keep your kids from turning to those quick microwave meals when you don't have the time to prepare something.  Weeknight dinners are one thing - then there are lunches and most important - breakfast. 

  This is a simple mom/family friendly recipe that can be make in advance.  When your kids help prepare something, they are more likely to try it.  Kids can crack the eggs and stir them up for you.  It's a great cooking lesson! Don't hesitate to come up with your own combinations to best suit your family's taste.  When the mornings are hectic - pop a freshly made Breakfast Burrito into the microwave and feel good about feeding your family something fresh and nourishing.


2 tsp. canola oil
1 12 oz. package @Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage
1 cup frozen hash browns with peppers and onions
8 large eggs
Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper
4 taco size flour torilllas

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add sausage links.  Cook for 12-16 minutes or until cooked through and browned, turning often.

Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.  Add the hash browns to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden brown and crisp, about 8-10 minutes.

Beat the eggs in a medium bowl until frothy.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and a few dashes of hot sauce (optional).  Pour the eggs over the potatoes and cook, stirring until the eggs are fluffy and just set.  Remove from the skillet and keep warm.

Wipe out the skillet and return it to the heat.  Warm the torillas one at a time in the skillet.  Build the burrito by layering the egg mixture, sausage and a sprinkle of cheese.  Fold up the two sides and roll up tightly.


Wrap burrito in paper towel and then in foil.  Freeze in zip-top bag, label and freeze.


Remove foil.  Place burrito with paper towel on a microwave safe plate and heat on HIGH for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes, or until heated through.
