Have you ever had breakfast burritos? They’re a lot like the burritos you have for lunch or dinner, except that you use eggs, instead of meat, to fill the tortillas. You can add some breakfast sausage to the eggs, throw in some veggies and maybe some hash browns or fried potatoes.

We’ve been making these sausage and egg burritos for breakfast since way, way back.  See, we figured out that while the kids don’t really like eggs, they’ll eat almost anything wrapped in a tortilla! Actually, I’m gonna be completely honest here and let you know that the Hubs makes them. I do the pancakes, muffins and French toast, but he’s the egg man.

Anyway, this is an easy recipe for breakfast burritos that uses just four main ingredients:

  1. Scrambled eggs
  2. Breakfast sausage
  3. Shredded cheese
  4. Flour tortillas

So first, you make the sausage. Then, you make the eggs. Then, you start making the burritos!

You could easily stop there, but we like to take these breakfast burritos to a different level and give them a crispy texture. So after rolling the burritos, you heat them up in a skillet for a little bit until they’re golden brown and crisp on the outside.

It’s an extra step, but it’s so worth it!

    So simple but on point with the crispy tortilla! I added diced onion & serrano to the pan before mixing in the egg so good. Thanks for sharing!5 stars

    1. Dee says:

      Awesome! I’m so glad you liked the burritos — thanks so much!

  2. Donna Cummings says:

    I have made these for many years. I have never fried them to make them crispy but it should be a nice touch. I usually add cooked onions and jalapeños. Then before wrapping add some Texas Pete. Great for adults who want an extra kick. Great for breakfast or dinner.

  8. Lisa januska says:

    What size tortillas do you use, the burrito size, or taco size?

    1. Dee says:

  9. MV says:

    This looks and sounds amazing but… Is this really 441 kcal?? That’s A LOT of calories5 stars

    1. Dee says:

      It depends on how full you make them. I just did a different version with less filling, and I got about 10 instead of 8, so the calories were less. Sometimes, I only eat half, so that saves calories, as well.:)
