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

  • 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**
  • Shredded cheese
  • Salsa
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Guacamole or avocado slices
  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.
