Need a great on-the-run breakfast for your family? Then our Southwest Breakfast Burritos are a super portable hot meal that they can enjoy as they race to school or the office. Stuffed with protein-packed eggs, light turkey breakfast sausages, and wrapped in a fiber-rich whole wheat tortilla, you can't go wrong.

What You'll Need:
  • 8 ounces turkey breakfast sausages, casings removed
  • 1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 4 (8- to 10-inch) whole wheat tortillas, warmed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded pepper Jack cheese
What To Do:
  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook sausage over medium heat, breaking into crumbles, until browned and cooked through. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Add bell pepper; saute until softened, about 4 minutes.
  2. Pour eggs over mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking by pulling, lifting, and folding eggs until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  3. Spoon egg mixture into center of tortillas, dividing evenly; sprinkle with cheese. Fold in sides of tortillas, then roll up burrito-style.
  • Tortillas can be stacked and heated in a microwave oven for about 30 seconds.
  • If you prefer, you can lighten this up by using reduced-fat cheese.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I make this quit often, especially when camping. I use pork sausage and add onion with the peppers. Add the salsa when I put on the cheese. I have never had anyone complain.

Sounds good, but wouldn't it be better with some added salsa to give it a little more "character"? Needs something to bump up the flavor.
