Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos


  • 12 medium to large eggs
  • 1 cup cheese
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 10 large flour tortillas


  • Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl. Beat well with fork until well mixed. Can add a 1/4 - 1/2 a cup of milk or whipping cream if you like, for more creaminess.
  • In large skillet, cook sausage over medium high heat while cutting with a spatula to break it into small pieces, until fully cooked and no longer pink in the center. Pour out into a large bowl and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and pour beaten eggs into same skillet. Cook, stirring often, until eggs are scrambled and no longer runny. Pour on top of sausage in bowl and stir to combine.
  • Heat tortillas, one at a time, in large skillet, about ten seconds on each side. Immediately fill with a line of egg/sausage mixture and sprinkle a little cheese over top. roll up tortillas (see photos in this post for how I roll mine) and wrap each one individually in foil, twisting or folding the ends to seal.

Serve warm and refrigerate any leftovers. To reheat, remove burrito from foil and wrap in a paper towel. Microwave until heated through (about one minute in my microwave, but microwaves vary). To reheat in oven, preheat to 350 and place foil wrapped tortilla directly onto oven rack. Heat for 7-8 minutes, or until heated through.

    *IMPORTANT INGREDIENT NOTE: You can really customize these with whatever you like. Onions, bell peppers, chicken or ground beef instead of sausage, etc. I am just showing you the basic basic version, which is what I make for my family. We then customize our own as we reheat them.
