Breakfast Burritos
Recipe from 
Yield: 6 burritos
Prep Time: 20 mins
  • 6    10 inches   flour or whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1    tablespoon   butter or margarine
  • 1    cup   refrigerated shredded southwestern-style or plain hash brown potatoes
  • 1/2   cup   cooked breakfast sausage, bulk pork sausage, cooked bulk turkey sausage, diced Canadian-style bacon or diced cooked ham
  • 2    slices  bacon, crisp-cooked, drained and crumbled
  • 6      eggs
  • 1/3   cup   milk
  • 1/4   teaspoon   salt
  • 1/4   teaspoon   chili powder or freshly ground black pepper
  • 1    tablespoon   butter or margarine
  • 1/4   cup   chopped onion
  • 1/4   cup   finely chopped green or red sweet pepper
  • 1    4 1/2ounce can  diced green chile peppers, drained
  • 3/4   cup   crumbled queso fresco, shredded Monterey Jack cheese or shredded cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
  • 1/3   cup   sour cream
  • 1/3   cup   red and/or green chunky salsa
  •     Snipped fresh cilantro (optional)
  •     Red and/or green chunky salsa (optional)
Stack tortillas and wrap in foil; heat in a 350 degrees F oven for 10 minutes until heated through. (Or, wrap tortillas in microwave-safe paper towels; heat in microwave oven on 100% power (high) about 1 minute or until heated through.) Set aside.
For filling:
In a medium nonstick skillet, melt the 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Stir in potatoes. Spread in an even layer; press down lightly with spatula. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. Turn potatoes over with a spatula. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes more or until golden brown and crisp (turn potatoes as necessary for even browning). Stir in sausage and bacon; heat through. Set aside; keep warm.
In a small bowl, beat together eggs, milk, salt and chili powder with a rotary beater or whisk. In a large skillet, melt the 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat; add onion and sweet pepper. Cook over medium heat until vegetables are tender. Pour in egg mixture. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until mixture begins to set on the bottom and around edges.
With a spatula or a large spoon, lift and fold the partially cooked egg mixture so that the uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and folding over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until egg mixture is cooked through, but is still glossy and moist. Immediately remove from heat.
Divide potato mixture evenly among tortillas, placing it just below the center of each tortilla. Top each with some of the egg mixture, chilies, shredded cheese, sour cream and the 1/3 cup salsa. For each tortilla, fold bottom edge up and over the filling. Fold opposite sides in. Roll up from bottom. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degrees F. oven. If you like, garnish with cilantro and serve with additional salsa.
Make Ahead Tip
  • These burritos can be made the day before, refrigerated, and reheated the next morning. To reheat: Wrap one burrito in a paper towel and microwave on 50% power (medium) for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees .
