Matthew’s Favorite:  SAUSAGE & EGG W/ CHEESE Breakfast Burrito

Table of Contents: BREAKFAST


I have “staged” this recipe for you to be able to have hot burritos for breakfast.  I really dislike burritos that have gotten cold.  The recipe should make it EASY for you to accomplish!  That is always one of my goals.

6 to 8 oz. bulk sausage, mild or hot

4 large eggs


½ tsp. olive oil

2 T. green pepper, minced

4 green onions with the green tops, sliced thin

4 T. sharp Cheddar cheese, grated and divided

2 T. salsa plus extra for individual use; bottled, homemade, or fresh refrigerated

1 tsp. butter or margarine

4 (10”) flour tortillas







Cook the bulk sausage using a whisk or a fork until done and crumbled.  Drain-off and discard any drippings.


Break the eggs into a small bowl and salt each egg; then beat the eggs and set aside.


Add the olive oil to the skillet and heat; then cook the green peppers and green onions until transparent.


Put some extra salsa into a side-bowl to allow it come to room temperature.


Have the flour tortillas ready to heat in the microwave.  If you do not have a tortilla warmer, place the tortillas into a glass pie-plate and cover with another

glass pie-plate to heat in the microwave, but do not heat them until later.


Melt the butter in a large non-stick skillet; then add the eggs, sausage, green pepper, green onion, and 2 T. of salsa.  Using medium heat, slowly scramble the mixture until firm.  Microwave the tortillas for about 30 seconds while cooking the sausage/egg mixture.


When the sausage/egg filling is cooked, divide it into 4 portions and place one portion in the center of each tortilla.   Roll one edge of the tortilla over the filling and slip the edge under the filling; then roll the filled tortilla toward the opposite tortilla edge.  Place the burrito

seam-side down on a platter.  Repeat with all tortillas.   Serve the hot burritos immediately with the extra salsa that can be added, if desired.
