Instructions

  1. In a medium pan, cook sausage until done. Place on a plate and set aside. If the sausage had a lot of grease, drain and wipe the pan carefully with a paper towel.
  2. If you will be eating one of the burritos the same day, heat up the potatoes in the same pan. Otherwise, just thaw them out and set aside.
  3. To the same pan, add a tablespoon of butter and melt.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs with half and half. Season with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture into the pan with butter. Gently swirling mixture with a spatula or wooden spoon, cook eggs until they reach desired texture. Remove from pan onto a plate. Set aside.
  5. Lay out tortillas on a cutting board. Top with equal amount of filling, starting with eggs, then sausage, then potatoes. Top with cheese. Fold in sides of the tortilla to the center. Roll up burrito-style. Wrap in a sheet of freezer paper and place in ziploc bag.
  6. Freeze for up to 3 months.
  7. To reheat: unwrap burrito and set on a microwave-safe plate. Heat up for 45 to 60 seconds OR until heated through. It helps to cut the burrito in half to speed up the process. Also, you can let the burrito thaw out for 30 minutes before heating.

Recipe Notes

  1. I like to use potatoes O'Brien in this recipe because it already comes with onions and peppers. If you are using frozen diced potatoes, add 1/2 cup chopped onion and 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper. Saute until soft and add to potatoes. Make sure the frozen potatoes are thawed out before using in this recipe.
  2. Half and half is an equal mixture of cream and milk. Whole milk can be substituted. The addition of half and half makes scrambled eggs fluffier.
  3. You can use any cheese you like: cheddar, pepper Jack or a mix.
