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 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.Since 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. 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. So I just minced up the garlic, diced up the onion and jalapeno, and julienned the peppers,and sauteed it all up with the spicy sausage and a little salt, pepper, and oregano.Then 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!
Sausage and Egg Breakfast Burrito
- 1/2 lb of ground hot Italian sausage
- 1/4 cup of diced white onion
- 3 cloves of garlic minced
- 3 mini sweet peppers julienned
- 1/2 jalapeno diced
- 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of oregano
- fresh ground pepper to taste
- 1 large flour tortilla
- 1 large egg
- small tab of butter
- Sriracha to tatste
- 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.
- After about 5 minutes, add the salt, oregano, and pepper and continue cooking for another 10-12 minutes until the sausage is completely cooked.
- In a separate small pan, heat to medium and add butter. Melt butter until it begins to sizzle a little add the egg.
- 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.
- Lay tortilla flat and add sausage mixture. Top with the fried egg and sriracha.
- Wrap it up and dig in!
