A messy, flavorful, delicious, South of the border, breakfast burrito that satisfies those morning munchies. Stuffed with chorizo sausage, cheddar cheese, peppers and scrambled eggs. This is a filling, low carb, low sugar, handful of nutrition!
This breakfast Burrito recipe began in a HUGE windstorm (60mph winds) that knocked trees and heavy branches down like toothpicks all over our roads and power lines, for over a hundred miles around us. Dave and I, all unknowing set out into that quite unexpected storm to run errands and go to a family birthday party. We had a wild ride indeed. The storm came up quick and violent! Our first clue was the trees downed in our driveway. After we cleared those we progressed slowly toward our destinations. Trees and branches were coming down all around us. Road were closed, trees were falling in the roads! We eventually arrived at the party. No power there either, but we had fun anyway. Not everyone did get to the party. Kayti and Brian were stopped by a huge downed tree that nearly fell on their truck, right on a busy highway.
Several hours later, we approached our very dark, silent house. Isn’t it errie when all the electronic white noise gives way to silence? …And then the neighbor started his generator. Loud, abrasive sound heard all over the neighborhood. We broke out the camp lanterns and called it a night, serenaded by our neighbor’s noisy, obnoxious generator.
Next morning, the generator sounds woke us. The winds had died down, but No power yet. Fortunately, Kayti and Brian live in a different area that managed to get their power back in a few hours. (Some people in our county waited WEEKS!) So Kayti and Brian graciously invited us to breakfast to wait out our power outage at their fully powered home. But they had no food and the stores were all closed. I cleaned out my rapidly warming fridge and we came up with a new breakfast idea for our family. We had never had breakfast burritos before and under the circumstances just winged this recipe. I’ve seen breakfast burritos on pinterest for years so this seemed a stellar time to make our version!
Breakfast Burrito Recipe Notes:
It was a rather hectic morning all in all. fortunately Kati had a large griddle and we just kept throwing up batches of food that needed to get used up. We were happy we had a whole houseful of people to dig in and eat it all!
Making these Breakfast Burritos is very easy:
- Start with a great brand of healthy sausage. Get it frying on medium low.
- Cut up some peppers and add them in when the sausage is about halfway done.
- Whisk up some eggs and put them in a frying pan or griddle with a bit of butter or coconut oil. Scrambled those eggs until they are as dry as you like them. Season them if you wish. We just added lemon juice.
- Shred some cheddar cheese
- Heat your tortillas. We put ours on the griddle
- If you’ve timed it right, it’s ready to assemble and eat!
Perfect Easy Breakfast!
It turned out so well, we thought you’d like to have a look. I have made these twice now. We really think this is an outstanding breakfast idea! Even husband loves this breakfast. Astonishing because he HATES scrambled eggs with a passion. Over easy is the only way he’ll eat eggs. Except omelets, he loves those…and he loved this breakfast! We all loved these just the way you see them. No salsa or hot sauce…or anything! Add your preferred extras before you wrap the burrito to protect your tortilla from breaking. Enjoy!
