Easy Money Breakfast Burritos

"Yummy burritos that are so good that my husband was selling them for a buck apiece at corp school in the Navy. I was making them every night, and we bought a new couch with the money! These freeze really well; just defrost and eat. I also add fresh cooked mushrooms in these on occasion. I do find that these taste better when made ahead of time and eaten at a later time."

  1. Place the pork sausage and onion into a skillet over medium heat, and cook until the sausage is browned, about 10 minutes. Break the meat apart into crumbles as it cooks. Drain the excess grease.
  2. In a separate skillet over medium heat, melt the butter until the foam subsides, and cook and stir the beaten eggs with the chilies until softly scrambled but not wet, about 3 minutes. Transfer the scrambled eggs into a large bowl, and stir in the cooked sausage mixture.
  3. Place a tortilla onto a microwave-safe plate, and cook in the microwave on High setting for 10 to 20 seconds. The tortilla should be warm and pliable. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the sausage and egg mixture in a line down the the tortilla, slightly off center. Top with about 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese, and 1 tablespoon of salsa. Fold 2 opposite ends of the tortilla over the filling. Press the 2 ends down so they stay folded. Carefully roll the shorter unfolded edge over the burrito, pushing the filling to the back of the roll as you go, to snugly enclose the filling. Keep the 2 ends folded as you roll. Wrap in foil if desired. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas.

I am the submitter of this recipe-make sure you use the green chilies in these~~they really make these outstanding!! I prefer mine without cheese. You can defrost them overnight in the fridge.

I made a half recipe of this. I added fresh minced garlic in with the onion and I used sharp cheddar cheese instead of Velveeta, only because I don't keep processed cheese on hand. I also used m...

Great for breakfast "on the go"! I cut way back on the serving size because I didn't need that many. I used microwave sausage links that I cut in half lengthwise and then scrambled my eggs and u...

We have been making these for a good while. I use Jimmy Dean sausage, regular, or a mix with sage and hot. The difference - I smoke the 1 lb. chubs of sausage (known as a "fatty" in the smoking ...

What is the best way to defrost. Could one defrost over night and heat in oven......I would like to defrost 10-12 at once rather than use microwave.
