1 lb. roll breakfast sausage
18 eggs
1 large pkg. frozen O'Brien potatoes
16 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
large jar of salsa, your choice
12 large flour burrito size tortillas
salt and black pepper to taste

**NOTE**  I often change up the kind of sausage, potatoes and/or cheese I use in this recipe. Hash brown potatoes, sage or hot breakfast sausage and fiesta blend or Mexican blend cheeses are just a few of the possible substitutes. I often peel and fry my own potatoes instead of using the frozen variety. Make this recipe your own by choosing what you like best.


Cook and crumble breakfast sausage in a skillet until no longer pink and done. Drain on paper towels and set aside. Cook O'Brien or hash browns as directed on package, or fry your own. Drain on paper towels if needed and set aside. Scramble eggs in a large skillet until done, adding salt and pepper to taste.

In a LARGE BOWL OR PAN, mix together the sausage, potatoes and scrambled eggs.

 Now set up your assembly line: On each flour tortilla, place 2 or 3 tablespoons of shredded cheese, then the same amount of the egg/potato/sausage mixture, and top with a heaping tablespoon of salsa. Keep in mind that you need to portion things so that you have about an equal amount of each item for all 12 burritos. I tend to over stuff mine so be careful that you don't get them too full to roll up.

Roll up burrito style. I put the filling on the lower 1/3 of the tortilla, then fold up the bottom portion, pulling it tight. As I hold it down, I carefully fold in each side, then flip over and roll the remaining side in place. As you roll up each burrito, place on a sheet of foil and roll up, folding and crimping the ends. Place in a freezer bag, label with the date and freeze for up to 6 months, although mine never last that long.

I almost always double this recipe and wrap the burritos in foil, then place in zip top freezer bags and freeze until needed. I take out only the amount needed and thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating in a 350* oven for about 30 minutes or until heated through. Or, you can unwrap from the foil and place on a microwave safe plate and nuke until heated through.
