Turkey Sausage Breakfast Burritos

Turkey Sausage Breakfast Burritos

I wanted to make something that could be made in a big batch, then put in the freezer for a quick breakfast, or eaten for breakfast while traveling.  This recipe was wonderful.  You can adjust it any way you like – change the meat, add different fillings.  It’s extremely versatile.


1 pound breakfast turkey sausage (sold in a roll)
1 TBS extra virgin olive oil, divided
¼ cup diced onion
¼ diced green pepper
4 eggs
2 TBS water
½ cup colby jack cheese
½ tsp Kosher or sea salt
¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
6 Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas
salsa to taste


sharp knife/cutting board
2 skillets
small bowl
wooden spoon
measuring cups/spoons
cheese grater


Dice onion and green pepper.

Grate the cheese.


Heat the skillet over medium heat.  Add the olive oil and the turkey sausage.  Cook until done.


Heat another skillet over medium heat.  Add the remaining oil.  Add the onions and peppers.  Cook until onions are soft and transluscent.

Crack the eggs into a small bowl.  Add the water.  Whisk until beaten well.

Slowly pour the eggs into the pan with the onions and pepper.

Let set for about 30 seconds.

Add the salt and pepper.

Sprinkle the cheese on top.

Gently stir, using the spatula to shift the cooked eggs on the bottom to the top.  Wait a few seconds and repeat with the same motions until the eggs are cooked through.

Immediately remove from heat.  If you leave eggs in the pan, they will continue to cook and will get dry and ick.

On a flour tortilla, place a spoon full of the sausage.  (My flour tortillas are not usually so visually off.  I think my dough was slightly too dry when I made these tortillas, causing the edges to look like they did in these pictures.  The flavor was wonderful, however.)

Add a spoon full of the eggs.

Add salsa (if desired).

Roll up.



6 8-inch burritos.

Low in sugar
High in selenium

I froze four of them by wrapping them in aluminum foil and placing the wrapped burritos in a freezer bag.

I did not put salsa in the ones I froze.

They reheated easily in the microwave (after removing the foil) for 2 minutes each.

I would love to hear any feedback about this recipe. Did you make it? Did you enjoy it? Did you make any adjustments to it?
