Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 12 breakfast sausages removed from casing
  • 8 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
  • 8 oz refried beans
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or a mix
  • 10 large flour tortillas

Instructions

  • In a frying pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Squeeze breakfast sausage out of the casing and fry until brown, breaking up into small pieces with a spatula while cooking.
  • In a bowl combine eggs and cream. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Saute onions until translucent, then add the bell pepper. Saute for 2 minutes, then add the tomato and saute for one more minute.
  • Pour egg mixture into the pan and scramble until cooked. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.
  • Assemble the burritos: Smear 1 Tbsp of refried beans on the bottom half of the tortilla leaving a 1-inch rim to the edge. Layer scrambled eggs, 2-3 Tbsp cheese, and sausage on top.
  • Roll burrito up from the bottom then fold the left and right corners in toward the center and continue to roll into a tight burrito. Put seam side down, set aside, and repeat with remaining tortillas. Freeze (see instructions above the recipe card) or cook right away.
  • To eat right away, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place burritos seam side down in the pan and cook until the bottom of the burritos is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
