Cheesy Sausage, Potato & Egg Breakfast Burritos

Cheesy Breakfast Burritos are full of cheese, sausage, hash browns and scrambled eggs. They are perfect for a quick meal in the morning or anytime. I freeze mine then I heat them in the microwave right from the freezer.

In a large skillet over medium heat add the sausage and onion.

Cook until there is no pink remaining, drain

the fat then place on a plate and set aside.

Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel and add the butter.

Add the frozen hash browns, salt and pepper to taste

then cook the hash browns until cooked through and

almost brown. Remove the pan from the heat before

they get crispy and place the hash browns

on a plate then set aside.

In a large bowl whisk the eggs and milk

together. Salt and pepper to taste.

Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel

and cook the eggs, don’t overcook them.

In a large bowl add the sausage,

hash browns, scrambled eggs and cheese.

Toss well with a large spoon.

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out the mixture and

place it on one tortilla about 1/3 of the way toward the

center. Shape it into an log shape but keep it

about 1 & 1/2” from both ends.

Roll the tortilla over and under the filling.

Fold over the edges toward the center of the tortilla.

(I only used the toothpicks so I could take the picture.)

Continue to roll placing the seam side down.

If you plan on eating these within the next day, wrap them in plastic wrap so they don’t dry out and refrigerate. To heat, remove the plastic wrap, cover the burrito with a paper towel and microwave on high for 20 seconds then turn over and microwave until hot.

If you are going to freeze them, wrap them in foil only then freeze them in freezer bags. To heat, remove the foil, cover with a paper towel and microwave frozen for 60 seconds. Turn it over and microwave for another 45 seconds or until hot.

    • Yes I did. I actually had to leave the house so I cooked everything, mixed it together and put the bowl in the refrigerator. When I got home I wrapped them and froze them. Next up will be hot sauce with shredded chicken, taco ground beef and whatever else sounds good at the time. They are fun to make. Thank you so much Bernadette! 💕

  1. These sound so good! And easy, too. I usually make a bunch of these to freeze, but I only put sausage, eggs, cheese, and green peppers in mine. Adding hash browns and onions sounds good, too!

      • Yes a friend of ours has a farm and his meat is all organic and SO much cheaper than buying it from the store. It is one price per pound for the entire side. Usually under $2.00 a pound but then he takes the cow to the butcher and we pay them to process it. They also make the ground beef, patties, wrap it and freeze it.

      • No comparison to the store bought meat but it is because he uses no hormones or other stuff on the cows. It is the best tasting meat I have had. Last year he couldn’t get his cows butchered because the government limited the amount of cows that the butcher could process. He took the cows in and they turned him away. None of us were able to get meat and he had to sell them at an auction. He lost a ton of money and we have spent a fortune on meat from the grocery store that doesn’t even come close to his. I felt so bad for him.

      • Too many people working in a small room that could contaminate the meat (or so they thought last June 2020) is all I could think of. I have a feeling the price is going to be up this year since he didn’t make much last year.
