I’ve been making Breakfast Burritos ever since our daughters were young and in 4-H. It was one of our first cooking meeting recipes that we tried! We loved it and we still do. 

Serving Breakfast Burritos

A Grab-and-Go Breakfast

These burritos are perfect when you have kids in school or people leaving for work in a hurry. Make some of these up and give to your loved ones on their way out the door. While I much prefer to have them sit at the table with me for a one-on-one breakfast, I’d rather them eat something nutritious then go without.

When the girls were in 4-H and showing animals at the county fair, I would often send them off in the morning with one of these Breakfast Burritos wrapped in a napkin. They also work splendidly for a camping breakfast.

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this Recipe

Gather your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

Sometimes I add diced red bell peppers to this dish, but it’s good just like it is. 

Grate the Monterey Jack Cheese

Using a hand grater, shred the Monterey Jack cheese.

I encourage you to use block cheese and grate it yourself. 

Brown the sausage in a large skillet. Drain on plate with paper towel and set aside.

My go-to sausage that I like to buy is Oldham’s Country Sausage (16 g fat), or William’s Sausage (11 g fat). Both are lower in fat than most on the market and have a lovely mild flavor that I like in my recipes.

Mix Together the Eggs, Dried Onion, and Parsley

In a medium bowl, whisk together the large eggs and dried minced onion. If desired, you may add in the dried parsley.

Pour the egg mixture into the hot skillet and cook until eggs are cooked through. Add the browned sausage to mixture and stir to combine. Sprinkle the top with the shredded cheese. Remove from heat and allow the cheese to melt on top.

Heat the flour tortillas in a microwave for 1-2 minutes to warm.

Assemble the Burritos

To assemble the burritos, place about a cup of the egg mixture on a warmed flour tortilla, and roll it up like a burrito.

You may serve with salsa or hot sauce.

I always splash Louisiana Hot Sauce on mine. But I’m that way. I like Louisiana Hot Sauce.

Serving Breakfast Burritos for Breakfast or Brunch

This recipe will serve 4-6 people. Place any remaining egg mixture in a container and store in the fridge for another day.
