Breakfast Burrito

"This is a recipe that we make often on the weekends.  It makes a dozen large burritos so we can eat a hearty breakfast on a lazy weekend morning and then we freeze the rest to eat later.  Just take them out of the freezer, microwave and have a filling and delicious breakfast even on the busiest of weekday mornings!"

1 package of breakfast sausage roll (We use Jimmy Dean Sausage with sage.)
1 package of bacon
1 dozen eggs, beaten
1 package of frozen Potatoes O'Brien (We use Ore-Ida brand.)
1 bunch of green onions, chopped
1 (4 cup) package of shredded cheddar cheese
1 (12-count) package of large flour tortillas
Salsa for topping

Cook sausage with green onions until sausage is browned and onions are tender.  Cook bacon until desired crispness and crumble into pieces.  Prepare scrambled eggs.  Prepare potatoes following package directions.  Combine sausage, crumbled bacon, scrambled eggs and potatoes.  Divide mixture evenly on flour tortillas.  Top with cheese and roll up.  Serve with salsa.

To freeze burritos, prepare as above but when rolling tortillas make sure to fold in all four sides of the tortilla to fully enclose the ingredients.  Place in freezer bags and freeze until needed.  To prepare frozen burritos, microwave for about 1 minute, turn burrito over and continue cooking for approximately 1 minute 30 seconds or until heated through.


I really appreciate your comments! Thanks!
