I've always been more of a "sweet" person when it comes to my breakfasts. I'm a sucker for a good pancake recipe with lots of [sugar-free] maple syrup or a really delicious plate of homemade crepes with lots of fresh fruit!
Now, when I got pregnant and had morning sickness, I couldn't stand anything sweet - not even fruit! So I started coming up with savory breakfasts that would settle my stomach and satisfy my hunger.
After a while, I got tired of having to make breakfast every morning. I searched for "healthy breakfast burritos" on pinterest but all I could find were "sausage and egg burritos." High in fat and incredibly basic. Not about it.
That's how these delicious and healthy breakfast burritos were created: I needed a quick, meal prep friendly breakfast that had lots of flavor, nutritious ingredients, and balanced macros. You're going to love them!
One of the things I love most about these easy breakfast burritos is how many ingredients and flavors are packed inside. Unlike other recipes you'll find, it's not just a tortilla with sausage, eggs, and cheese. Inside these healthy breakfast burritos, you'll find:
Guess what - you only need ONE PAN for the entire recipe! It's wonderful. We're just going to rotate what is cooking in the pan and mix everything together in one massive bowl.
You're going to want a non-stick skillet (or even a wok!) for this because the hash browns and eggs are going to be cooked on high heat with minimal oil and we don't want to burn our pan!
Start by sauteing the peppers and onions until soft and fragrant in some cooking spray. Dice the veggies as small as your pinky fingernail so they cook faster, soften more, and stuff better inside the tortillas.
After the veggies are done, respray the skillet and add the turkey sausage. Season and cook until browned and very fragrant.
DO NOT drain the excess oil as you remove the sausage from the skillet! This is easiest if you use a slotted spoon to remove the sausage.
Turn up the heat to medium-high and add the frozen hash browns straight into the skillet with the sausage oil.
Adding them frozen instead of thawed will make sure they crisp up more than boil, and cooking them in the leftover oil infuses the potatoes will all the savory flavor from the meat. It's seriously next-level, my friend.
Lastly, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, and Everything seasoning, then pour into the hot skillet greased with cooking spray. Because the skillet is already hot, these eggs take less than 2 minutes to cook!
Fold in the cilantro to the giant bowl of burrito filling and you're almost done!
Now it's time to assemble the healthy breakfast wraps. Use a 1/2 C measuring cup to portion the burrito filling into a pile (yes, a pile) in the middle of the tortilla.
Add 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese and 1 tablespoon of salsa on top of the filling, then roll into a burrito with both ends closed.
PRO TIP: I worked at Taco Bell for 3 1/2 years in high school, so I actually know how to wrap a burrito the best way! Check out this quick 30 second tutorial to learn how! 👏🏼
Sure! Just use your favorite brand of gluten-free tortillas. If you want to keep the macros closer to the original recipe, try and use a gluten-free low-carb tortilla.
Yes! Just use your favorite non-dairy cheddar cheese.
Sure! You can substitute the sausage for a can of black beans. Season with the same seasonings and add some olive oil to the skillet before cooking the hash browns.
Wrap each burrito individually in foil, then store in the fridge for up to a week. You can also store each individually wrapped burrito in a large ziploc bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight.
Because these wraps are made with extra soft tortillas, you'll need to reheat a little different. Cut your burrito in half, warm for 30 seconds in the microwave, then flip over and warm an additional 30 seconds. The tortilla will be very hot and the inside will be fully warmed.
Ok ok if you made it this far, congrats. I'm already hungry for more of these healthy breakfast burritos! You need to make them ASAP.
