Super Wife Breakfast Burritos

So, I told you all awhile back one of my 2012 goals was to have a prepared meal for dinner every night (no more junk!). So far, that's been working out splendidly! Out of the seven super healthy freezer meals I've made, only one was a bust and to be perfectly honest, it wasn't that bad, the recipe just called for wild rice and well, hubby's not a big fan....

So, in keeping with this goal, I wanted to come up with something for T to eat for breakfast that he would a.) actually want to eat, b.) take the time to grab it and c.) was relatively healthy..... well healthier then Taquito's from Whataburger....which coincidentally are right around the corner from us and quite easy for him to stop and grab.... bad.....

Enter the Super Wife Breakfast Burritos...... He loves them! And for some strange reason, the fact that he leaves every morning-- fed, makes me feel like an even better wife..... yah, I think I may have a Mrs. Cleaver complex... (hubby wants me to explain right now that he in no way EXPECTS breakfast or dinner from me). Anyways, back to my burritos. I go ahead and make a bunch of them (about 10) and then freeze them! They are scrumptious and EASY.... If your mouth is watering and you can't wait to make these little yummies; here's my recipe (I used someone else's recipe, but altered it by adding a few things and making my own potatoes vs. freezer potatoes):

5-6 medium sized potatoes, cubed
1 red bell pepper , chopped
1 medium sized onion, chopped
1 tbs olive oil
10 eggs, (5 whole eggs, 5 egg whites) scrambled
1/2 lb ground light sausage, or turkey sausage
1 10 oz. can green chili sauce
8-10 burrito size flour tortillas
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese

1. First, boil your cubed potatoes until tender, then drain and set aside. Saute in olive oil -onions and red bell pepper until tender; add cooked potatoes to frying pan, cook for an additional two/ three minutes. Set aside.
2. In skillet, brown sausage. Remove from heat and drain excess fat. Set aside.
3. Make scrambled eggs (however you make them), set aside.
4. To assemble burritos: WArm flour tortillas on skillet or griddle until flexible; turning once. Fill tortillas with 1/3 C. scrambled eggs, 2-3 T of sausage, and 1/3 C of potatoes. Top with cheddar cheese and 1T of green chili sauce. Fold filled tortillas into burritos. Wrap each burrito in plastic wrap, then place individual burritos in a freezer bag. Freeze.

Serving Day Instructions:
Heat in microwave for one minute, turn burrito over, heat for one more minute.



  1. Wow, you rock! Dinner cooked every night in 2012. I am lucky if I get dinner on the table 3 times a week. I need to start getting better at this. Keep up the yummy recipies so I can steal them :)
