I have been thinking lately, breakfast might be my favorite meal. Not my weekday breakfast which consists of a Luna bar and iced latte every day. No joke, every.single.day. While that is pretty decent (otherwise why would I eat it every day) I'm a fan of weekend breakfast. I have more time to make something, it could be sweet or savory or…both. Either way, I love weekend breakfast.
I made these breakfast burritos the other weekend and we fell in love. I usually have some type of turkey sausage in the freezer or fridge for weekend breakfasts but I was all out. What's a girl to do? Well I found these chicken sausages in the freezer and bam, breakfast came together in a snap. Of course you could substitute with any type of meat or leave the meat out all together. I'm sure your family will enjoy these as much as we did.
The perfect, portable weekend breakfast.
Look at all that flavor.
I love those because your can customize them to your likes and also to whatever you have in your fridge.
Chicken Sausage Breakfast Burritos
Drizzle of canola or vegetable oil
1/2 large onion (red, white or green), diced
1 pepper (red, green, yellow, orange, whatever you choose), diced
2 large links of sausage, cut into half moon pieces
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/8 black pepper
Splash of milk
4 tortillas (flour or corn)
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese (or whatever cheese you have on hand)
Taco sauce or salsa for topping
Start by preheating a medium sized skillet on medium high heat, add the drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the onion and peppers. Sauté for 3 minutes or so or until they start to become tender.
Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, seasoned, black pepper and splash of milk in a medium bowl. Pour the eggs into a sauté pan on medium heat, sprayed with cooking spray. Using a heat safe spatula, babysit the eggs and keep scraping, and scraping, and scraping until the eggs are fully cooked.
While babysitting, add the chicken sausage to the pan with the onion and peppers and let cook on high heat to add a little color to the sausage.
Once the eggs are cooked, add the sausage and veggie mixture to the eggs. Stir to combine.
To assemble the burritos, add the egg mixture to a tortilla, sprinkle with cheese and drizzle with taco sauce or salsa.
