Breakfast Burrito with Egg, Sausage and Potatoes


Preparation Time: 20 minutes. Servings: 1-2.

1 large flour tortilla
1/4 – 1/2 cup each of Cheddar and Mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 teaspoon each of butter and peanut oil or vegetable oil

2 tablespoons chopped onion (white, red or green)
1 teaspoon minced garlic or to taste
Sour cream

Warm the tortilla in low oven or in pan on low heat & top with cheese
Heat butter and oil over low heat in a 7-8 inch egg pan
While the pan is heating, beat the eggs and a dash of pepper sauce in a small bowl with a wire
whip until blended but not frothy
When the fat the in egg pan is hot enough to sizzle a drop of water, add sausage, potatoes,
peppers, onions and garlic, and sauté 2-3 minutes stirring or shaking the pan often (do not burn
Pour in eggs and let sit on heat until eggs begin to cook around the edges
Stir occasionally and continue this process until the eggs are cooked but still soft and moist
Place egg mixture on lower third of the warm tortilla
Salt and pepper the mixture if desired
Fold up the bottom over the filling, fold in sides and roll up tightly
Divide in half for two servings and slide onto plates or plate whole for one serving
Serve with salsa, guacamole &/or sour cream on the side or on top of the tortilla

A wonderful breakfast sandwich!

As an alternative, use this same recipe to make a scramble topped with cheese and serve warm
tortillas on the side.
