  • Yield: 8 burritos 1x


These burritos are simple to make with their one-pan preparation and reheat in under two minutes for a hearty, flavor-packed breakfast on busy mornings.


  • 1 lb breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 red pepper, cored and finely diced
  • 12 eggs
  • A few dashes of hot sauce (optional)
  • 8 burrito-sized tortillas (I prefer these)
  • 2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • *you can also sun red pepper for 1 cup chopped spinach or other vegetable of your liking.


  1. Heat a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Cook sausage until browned and broken into pieces. Drain and return to pan.
  2. Add onion and pepper to the pan and saute until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Mean while crack the eggs into a large bowl and slightly beat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and egg eggs, Stir consistently until eggs are cooked through.
  4. Add hot sauce and mix in (optional)
  5. Remove from heat and allow egg scramble mixture to completely cool.
  6. Once cooled, add about 1/3 cup of the filling onto a burrito. Sprinkle on 1/4 cup of the cheese then roll tightly. Place of baking sheet. Repeat until all burritos are rolled.
  7. Place baking sheet in freezer for at least an hour, until frozen solid, then transfer the burritos to a freezer-safe ziplock bag or individually wrap each burrito in plastic wrap before returning to the freezer.
  8. To reheat: Remove burrito from plastic wrap and loosely wrap in a paper towel. Heat for 45 seconds in the microwave, flip over and heat for another 45 seconds. (Reheating times may vary slightly based on your microwave)
