  • 12 whole wheat tortillas
  • 12 eggs scrambled
  • 12 sausage links cut on the bias (or loose sausage, turkey, ham, etc.)
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 red bell pepper diced small
  • 1/2 red onion diced small
  • **Also 12 sheets of parchment paper sized to wrap the burritos and a large sealable plastic bag or container**
  1. Cook scrambled eggs and sausage ahead and let them cool.
  2. Lay 12 sheets of parchment down stacked on top of each other. Working one tortilla at a time, add scrambled eggs, sausage, diced bell pepper, onions, and cheese in the middle of the tortilla.
  3. Tuck each side of the tortilla over the middle.
  4. Fold a sheet of parchment like a burrito - fold the top and bottoms over the burrito, then roll the parchment to seal in the ingredients.
  5. Tuck all rolled Healthy Breakfast Burritos in parchment into a large ziploc bag or container.
  6. When you are ready to eat, take each burrito while still in the parchment, and place it in the microwave for 35-45 seconds to heat. Tear open the top of the parchment paper and use the bottom of the wrapper to hold the burrito just folding it down as you need to.
  7. YUM! Enjoy!
