Southwest Breakfast Burritos
Recipe courtesy of the American Egg Board.
8 ounces turkey breakfast sausages, casings removed
1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced
4 large eggs, beaten
4 (8 to 10-inch) whole wheat tortillas, warmed
1 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese (4 ounces)
- Coat large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook sausage over medium heat, breaking into crumbles, until browned and cooked through. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Add bell pepper; sauté until softened, about 4 minutes
- Pour eggs over mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, gently pour the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking - pulling, lifting and folding eggs - until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
- Spoon egg mixture into center of tortillas, dividing evenly; sprinkle with cheese. Fold in sides of tortillas, then roll up burrito-style.
Makes 4 servings.
