Breakfast burrito with sage sausage recipe

Serves 2


For the fried potatoes:

  • 2 medium-size potatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 dashes salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

For the scrambled eggs:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3 dashes ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons butter

For the breakfast burrito:

  • 2 extra-large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup cooked Jimmy Dean sage breakfast sausage
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • Fried potatoes
  • Scrambled eggs


For the fried potatoes:

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into about 1-1/2 inch pieces. In a medium-size bowl, add the potatoes, onions, pepper and salt.
  2. Then stir together to coat the potatoes and onions with the salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a medium-size skillet on medium heat and add the canola oil.
  4. Then add the potatoes and onions to the pan.
  5. Stir the potatoes as the cook until they turn a golden color (about 8 to 10 minutes).
  6. Remove the the potatoes and onions from the pan onto a plate with a paper towel and set aside.

For the scrambled eggs:

  1. In a medium-size bowl, add the eggs, milk, and pepper. Whisk together.
  2. Heat a medium-size pan on medium heat and add the butter. As soon as the butter melts, add the egg mixture.
  3. Stir the eggs as they cook until they are completely scrambled (about 6 minutes).
  4. As soon as the eggs are scrambled remove the pan from the burner and set aside for just a moment.

For the breakfast burritos:

  1. On a large plate, warm the tortillas (one at a time) in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
  2. Remove the tortilla from the microwave and turn it over on the plate so that the bottom side of the tortilla is now facing up (so that the tortilla doesn’t stick on the plate due to the moisture from warming it in the microwave).
  3. In the middle of the tortilla, add the sage sausage in about a 3-inch wide “line” or “rectangle” from one end of the tortilla to the other (leave about 2 inches of empty space on each end of the tortilla for rolling).
  4. Next top the sausage with the eggs. And top the eggs with the potatoes.
  5. Add the shredded cheese and salsa.
  6. Then fold the left and right sides of the tortilla inward and roll up the burrito as tight as possible without tearing the tortilla.
  7. Serve with individual small bowls of salsa.
