Ultimate Breakfast Burrito


This breakfast burrito is one of my favorite meals.  Given the fact that I almost exclusively eat my homemade granola for breakfast, having a hearty, warm breakfast (or breakfast-for-dinner) is a real treat.  This takes all my breakfast faves and puts it into burrito form.  What could be better?  Packing it with fresh, organic, local veggies makes this even better.  I love to make it when onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes are all in season together.  They are so flavorful!  Add in some eggs, cheese, sausage (veggie for me!), and tater tots and you've got one fantastic meal!  Top it with salsa, ketchup, hot sauce, or a some combination of the three to perfectly suit your tastes.  :)


Ingredients (enough to feed my family of four)

flour tortillas
1 Tbsp olive oil
5 small sausage patties
7 eggs
1/4 C milk
salt and pepper to taste
tater tots, cooked according to package directions
cheddar cheese, finely grated
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
2 large tomates, chopped


Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick pan.  Cook the sausage patties according to package instructions.  Set aside to cool.  Chop into small pieces. 
  2. While the sausage is cooking, whisk the eggs and milk together in a medium bowl.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Pour into the pan that cooked the sausages.  Cook to your liking.  
  3. Warm the tortillas and load the eggs and the rest of the toppings to your liking.  Top with ketchup, hot sauce, or salsa and enjoy!
