Any recipe that has the word burrito in it is an instant family favorite around here. We love hand held food and this recipe for Country Scramble Breakfast Burritos is no exception. Also, it's a great excuse to have another breakfast for dinner night. Check it out. Here's what you'll need:

1/4  lb. bulk turkey breakfast sausage

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 small red potatoes, unpeeled, diced (3/4 cup)

1 (8-oz.) carton (1 cup) refrigerated or frozen fat-free egg product, thawed, or 4 eggs, beaten

4 (8-inch) flour tortillas

4 tablespoons reduced-fat smoky Cheddar cold pack cheese food

 

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 2 Spray large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add sausage, onion and potatoes; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, stirring frequently. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
  • 3 Add egg product to same skillet; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until firm but moist, stirring frequently.
  • 4 Spread each tortilla with 1-tablespoon cheese food; spread to within 1/2 inch of edge. Place on sprayed cookie sheet. Spoon 1/4 of egg product, and 1/4 of sausage mixture down center of each tortilla. Fold bottom of each tortilla up over filling; fold right side to center. Fold left side over right side. Secure with wooden toothpick.
  • 5 Bake at 375°F. for 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted. If desired, serve with salsa.

Moms, what other ingredients would you add to make the ultimate breakfast for dinner burrito?

This sounds good to me, don't think I would add anything else to it! I want to do a breakfast for dinner one day this week now!

I make breakfast burritos often! They are great if you need to make a breakfast to go (anytime of day). Sometimes I do use sausage but also bacon, ham, cut up sausage links. Shredded cheese and hash browns are good fillers too. My hubby likes his with Salsa and my kids like ranch.

 this would be a good way to help me use up some of these eggs in the house!

i'd load them up with extra cheese but i don't think i'd add anything else.
