Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burrito

Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burrito Tacos/Burritos are their own food group, in our house.  My husband could literally eat them every single day; I’ve tested him on this and we went 7 days of tacos for dinner until we ran out of homemade tortillas.  It’s been a little while since we’ve had them so I decided to switch it up a little for him and make him a breakfast burrito.From Scratch flour tortillasFrom scratch flour tortillas aren’t just easy to make, but they also freeze really well!  Just a mix of the dough in a stand mixer, a split into small balls, and then a roll of them out into whatever size tortillas you want.From Scratch flour tortillasSince they freeze so well, whenever I make them, I usually double the recipe to get 32 tortillas that get portioned out and stored in our freezer so we have homemade tortillas ready whenever we are. Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burrito This particular day, I decided to make up a sausage and egg breakfast burrito for Dan with some spicy Italian sausage, garlic, onion, sweet mini peppers, and jalapeno.  Sausage and Egg Breakfast BurritoSo I just minced up the garlic, diced up the onion and jalapeno, and julienned the peppers,Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burritoand sauteed it all up with the spicy sausage and a little salt, pepper, and oregano.Sausage and Egg Breakfast BurritoThen onto a warm, fresh, homemade flour tortilla with a butter fried egg, and a healthy drizzle of sriracha hot sauce.  I though about scrambling a couple of eggs to mix in with the sausage, but then realized that a deliciously runny yolk through the burrito would be messy, but oh so much better.  My husband agreed, as he devoured this burrito and gave me a messy thumbs up!

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 lb of ground hot Italian sausage
  2. 1/4 cup of diced white onion
  3. 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  4. 3 mini sweet peppers, julienned
  5. 1/2 jalapeno, diced
  6. 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon of oregano
  8. fresh ground pepper to taste
  9. 1 large flour tortilla
  10. 1 large egg
  11. small tab of butter
  12. Sriracha to tatste
Instructions
  1. Heat a pan to medium to high heat and add the sausage, onion, garlic, and peppers. Break up sausage into small pieces as you cook it and the veggies, stirring often.
  2. After about 5 minutes, add the salt, oregano, and pepper and continue cooking for another 10-12 minutes until the sausage is completely cooked.
  3. In a separate small pan, heat to medium and add butter. Melt butter until it begins to sizzle a little add the egg.
  4. Let the egg cook, untouched for a couple of minutes. As the outside of the egg whites begins to set, cover the pan to let the top of the whites cook (by steaming the egg a bit), but keeping a nice runny yolk, 5-7 minutes.
  5. Lay tortilla flat and add sausage mixture. Top with the fried egg and sriracha.
  6. Wrap it up and dig in!
Notes
  1. This is a very large burrito. You could definitely make two smaller, medium sized burritos with this amount of sausage.
