You can vary the additions to this recipe for breakfast burritos. Add onions or frozen hash brown potatoes, omit the salsa, try using different types of cheese or flavored tortillas. The possibilities are endless!

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 24 burritos


  • 12 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 lb. pork sausage, cooked and drained
  • 1/2 cup chunky salsa
  • 2 cups Cheddar or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 24 flour tortillas


In large skillet, melt butter. Beat eggs in large bowl and add to skillet. Cook eggs in butter, stirring frequently, until scrambled and set. Add cooked sausage and salsa to egg mixture and mix gently.

Warm tortillas as directed on package. Place about 1/2 cup egg and sausage mixture onto each tortilla and sprinkle with some cheese. Roll up each tortilla to make burritos, folding in the ends and rolling up. Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets and freeze until solid. Then wrap individually and package in zip-lock freezer bags.

When you're ready to eat, unwrap the burritos, wrap loosely in microwave safe paper towel and heat in the microwave on high power for 1-3 minutes until hot and cheese is melted.

You can also thaw burritos in the refrigerator overnight, then wrap each in foil and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until hot. The thawed burritos can also be deep fried for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and crisp.

These made up well, i used hash browns as well. I used a smaller taco size shell so we wouldn't have too much tortilla dough. My little boy helped make them and enjoyed the process. We waited to add the cheese once we filled the tortilla's. Yummy. It made 24 for us.
