I’m always looking for easy breakfast recipes that my whole family will happily eat, and I’ve found that breakfast burritos are always a big hit! I love that you can easily customize breakfast burritos to everyone’s tastes, and you can have them on the table in 15 minutes. The holidays are coming to a close, but my kids are still home from school for another week. I made a big batch of these burritos for them to grab and reheat each day.

How do you make a breakfast burrito?

This recipe uses Johnsonville’s Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage to make for a speedy prep time. The sausage links are diced and cooked in a pan alongside some eggs. The sausage and eggs get layered into a tortilla with shredded cheese, refried beans and pico de gallo. Roll it all up and you’re ready to eat!

December 30th is National Bacon Day, but I’m choosing sausage over bacon for my breakfast burritos. Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage is faster to make than bacon, contains more protein, and is full of savory flavors. Swap out your bacon for sausage, you surely won’t regret it!

Breakfast Burrito Tips

  • I typically make 6 burritos at once, then store any leftovers in the fridge for use later in the week. You can reheat your breakfast burrito in the microwave for about 45-60 seconds or until warmed through. The burritos will last in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • You can also freeze your burritos for up to one month. You can reheat frozen burritos by cooking them in the microwave for 3-5 minutes.
  • You can use store bought or homemade pico de gallo. I typically use store bought to save time for this recipe.
  • Not a fan of refried beans? Try whole pinto beans or black beans instead.

How to fold a burrito

It’s important that you get all of your ingredients tightly folded inside your tortilla. The first step is to be sure not to over fill your tortilla! If you add too many ingredients, the tortilla will not be able to adequately wrap around the fillings. Layer your fillings down the middle of your tortilla, leaving about 1/2 inch of space on either end. Fold one half of the burrito over the filling, then tuck in both sides as you roll.

Breakfast Burrito Variations

While I think this recipe is delicious as written, you can add other ingredients into the mix.

  • Guacamole: Add 1 tablespoon of pre-prepared guacamole to each burrito.
  • Olives: Add 2 teaspoons sliced black olives to each burrito.
  • Lettuce: Add 2 tablespoons of shredded romaine or iceberg lettuce to each burrito.

It’s time to give sausage a try for breakfast, and I can’t think of a better way to enjoy it than these hearty burritos. Once you try them, you’ll find yourself making them every week!
