Sausage and Potato Breakfast Burritos

March 20, 2014Teresa

Sausage and Potato Breakfast Burritos are awesome! This is the last Breakfast Burrito recipe I’m rolling out! These tasty burritos are made with sausage, a batch of my seasoned Fried Potatoes, scrambled eggs and cheese. Then that mixture is rolled in hot tortillas and served with salsa. These breakfast burritos are an excellent choice for a quick breakfast because you can make these up in advance. Then just microwave one or two on your way out the door to work or school. They also freeze well.

I catered a Ladies’ Conference breakfast at our church several weeks ago. The main request was for “protein” for breakfast, and not merely sweets. I had a table full of sweet coffee cakes, breakfast cobblers and muffins. I also had a table laden with fresh fruit trays. The final table was full of protein and included, Pigs In a Blanket, Sausage Cheese Drops, Sausage Cheese Balls, and lots of assorted Breakfast Burritos. Three of the burritos were vegetarian and two had sausage in some combination.

I had never made breakfast burritos before. I was really glad Shelby Etter, a gal from our Sunday school class at church, offered to help me make these. We had a blast in the kitchen making these burritos. All my skillets were horribly messed up by the scrambled eggs so I do recommend using a non-stick skillet if possible. (I no longer own any). It did take several minutes scouring each one to put my skillets back in working order! We made up about 160 burritos in all, though we were minus a few because I had to sample each one. 🙂

I will tell you that this recipe is really a lot easier if you fry up your sausage and potatoes ahead of time. You can even refrigerate the sausage and potatoes a few days until you get around to making this recipe. Then after you scramble your eggs, you can add the sausage, potatoes and cheese, stir to combine, and then stuff the mixture into the tortillas.

We like this recipe served with salsa. There are so many kinds out on the market these days including pineapple-mango salsas that are fabulous. You can get creative and serve Sausage and Potato Breakfast Burritos with your choice. Even a home-made Pico de Gallo or Guacamole would work for me!

If you’re looking for a tasty breakfast burrito recipe that your family is sure to love then you’ve found one! The nice thing about this recipe is you can actually use the eggs, sausage, potatoes and cheese in the amounts you desire. Place the ingredients in a bowl. If you want more cheese, add more cheese. If you really like spicy hot breakfast burritos then use a hot pork sausage, a habanero cheese blend and a hot salsa for dipping.

The sky is the limit with this simple recipe. You really don’t have to be extra meticulous with the amounts of the ingredients. Although I highly recommend you season the Fried Potatoes with all of the seasonings I suggest, or you will get a blander burrito.

But for that matter, feel free to add more seasonings if you prefer, especially if you grow your own herbs. Regardless of how you make them, Sausage and Potato Breakfast Burritos will be a big hit with your family. They were a huge rave with everyone at the Ladies’ Conference. I’m sure they’ll be a winner for your family or company breakfast too.

Bring a non-stick skillet to medium heat and melt a couple of tablespoonfuls of butter. Lightly beat 4 or 5 large eggs in a bowl. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.

Scramble and cook eggs until done. At this point, you can stir in cooked sausage, potatoes and cheese and combine. Or you can transfer the eggs to a mixing bowl with the sausage, cheese, and potatoes (in the amounts you want). Stir to combine.

Place dampened paper towels on top and bottom of the stack of tortillas. Microwave on high about 20 seconds. This will prevent the tortillas from tearing when you roll them up. Place about one-third to one-half cup sausage mixture down the center of each tortilla. Leave a one to one-and-a-half inch border at top and bottom (as pictured).
