MAKE AHEAD OPTION

I usually make the entire recipe, wrap each individually in plastic wrap, then put them in the freezer. The breakfast burritos are simple to reheat in the microwave and great for busy mornings or even those nights when you don’t want to make dinner. That happens to me a lot. Especially if I’m working out in the evenings.

Try dipping them in a little greek yogurt or low-fat sour cream for an extra creamy bite. Hot sauce also does wonders to jazz these up even more. Either way, you’ll fall in love!

REHEATING THESE HEALTHY BREAKFAST BURRITOS

  • If heating from frozen, unwrap plastic wrap and place on a plate and then into the microwave. Use the defrost setting on your microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, flipping every minute. Then microwave on high for 60-90 seconds or until hot.
  • If heating from thawed, microwave on high for 60 to 90 seconds.
  • You can also reheat the burritos in the oven or toaster oven, which in my opinion, yields the best results. See the end of the recipe, below, for instructions on this option.

Easy Healthy Breakfast Burritos with a make ahead option will get you up in the morning! 

Ingredients
  • 4 ounces red potatoes, cubed
  • 4 Sugarhouse Maple Breakfast Chicken Sausages or Applegate Sausage Links (I used 4 links at about 85grams.)*
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 8 egg whites or 1 cup of liquid egg whites from a carton
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt + Pepper to taste
  • 4 large tortillas**
OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:
  • Shredded cheese
  • Salsa
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Guacamole or avocado slices
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, sauté potatoes for about 3-5 and until they are softening. Chop chicken sausage and add it with onion and bell pepper to the skillet. Continue to cook for a minute or two and then add in spinach. Once veggies are tender and sausage is browned, add eggs, egg whites and seasonings.

  2. Fill tortillas evenly with 1/4 of the egg mixture and any other toppings you prefer. Fold in the sides of the tortilla over the filling and roll, tucking in the edges as you go.
  3. Spray cleaned skillet with cooking spray and set the heat to medium. When the skillet is hot, add the burritos, seam side down. Cook, covered, until the bottom of the burritos are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip the burritos over and continue cooking, covered, until golden, a few minutes more. Serve warm.
  4. Make Ahead: The burritos may be assembled a few hours ahead of time, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerated, before cooking. To reheat leftover burritos, wrap in foil and warm in a 350°F oven for about 15 minutes. (They won't be as crisp as they are fresh out of the pan, but they reheat well.)
Recipe Notes

*Use gluten-free tortillas as needed. For healthier tortillas, look for whole grain or sprouted. You can typically find these in the bakery area of your grocery store. Whole Foods and Sprouts have great options.

**The Sugarhouse Maple is particular sausage that is a healthier option and can be found at Costco. Applegate brand can be found at most grocery stores. You could also use one very large link, like Aidells Chicken Apple Sausage, which is about 85 grams/link. 

*This recipe can easily be doubled if you're serving a crowd or meal prepping.
