Have you eaten a breakfast burrito full of ???? at a fast food chain? I know they taste good, but do you know what’s in it? I’ve discovered how easy it is to make breakfast wraps and there’s no turning back. You can create them with anything you desire and you know exactly what’s inside.
I’m using fresh local sausage and chopped onion which I brown in a large skillet.
Because I’ve already batched cooked potatoes this week, it’s the perfect opportunity to throw them in the breakfast wrap filling. I’m using about 3 cups of chopped baked potatoes (They’ve been in my fridge for about 2 days).
Time to crack some eggs. Oh look I’ve got two choices. We have our own bantam chicks in our backyard and the smaller ones are miniture eggs. Aren’t they cute. We mainly use them for fried eggs. I’ve beaten ten regular size eggs in a bowl with milk.
Then I add this to the sausage and potato mixture and cook until the eggs are set. I like to season them with salt and pepper to taste. It’s actually a good idea to taste the filling and see if you would like more salt or a dash of cayene if your kiddos don’t eat these or you can just add hot sauce or picante when you serve heat your own.
I warm the tortillas for one to two minutes until soft. Then I place about 1/2 cup filling in the middle.
I wrap it like an envelope, folding the bottom up and then the sides and rolling away from me. Then I place it on a small sheet of foil and wrap the foil the same way. Wax paper works well too, but I always have foil and it’s recyclable:)
All of the wraps go into a gallon size bag and they can be thawed and heated individually in the microwave WITHOUT the foil, of course. They reheat on 50% power for two minutes or until hot. You may reheat from a frozen state, but keep the 50% power and heat three to five minutes until hot. Slice on the diagonal and check the center to check the temperature.
We took ours on our latest camping trip. It was awesome having our sausage and eggs cooked in a wrap without having to dirty any dishes for breakfast. I nearly flipped when my three oldest children ate them. I’m taking the rest of these on vacation for an easy breakfast without dishes.
Freezer Breakfast Wraps
1 pound breakfast sausage
1 onion, finely chopped

Brown sausage and onion over medium high heat and drain grease. I rinse mine in hot water. Add potatoes and cook for 5 minutes on low heat. Beat eggs and milk in a large bowl. Sprinkle in salt, pepper and cayenne if desired. Add chives and cheese. Warm tortillas for about a minute and place 1/2 cup egg mixture into the middle and wrap like an envelope. Freeze individually in wax paper or foil. Place wraps in a gallon size bag and freeze. Thaw 24 hours and warm on 50% power for 2 minutes or until hot. Serve with hot sauce or picante sauce if desired.
