Breakfast Burritos

This recipe idea came from a student at a local ministry that GK is partnering with to serve breakfast this semester. Breakfast burritos are very easy to pull together, and the flavor combinations are limitless. Here I used cheese, eggs, and sausage, with a fresh salsa served on the side. The next time I make this dish, they will have ham, spinach, eggs, and cheese. After I assembled the burritos, I arranged them in a disposable pan, covered it tightly, and put it in the warmer until ready to serve. The students in the GED program loved the results. (The recipe makes 24 burritos, but you can easily scale it down to meet your needs.) Enjoy!

Breakfast Burritos
24 flour tortillas
2 lb. sausage
24 eggs
1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper
4 Tbsp. butter
16 oz. shredded cheese

1. Wrap tortillas in aluminum foil, and heat in the oven at 350° for 15 minutes.
2. Cook sausage until browned and crumbly.
3. Whisk together eggs and milk; season with salt and pepper. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet; pour in half of egg mixture. Cook until eggs are scrambled. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 Tbsp. butter and remaining egg mixture.
4. To assemble the tortillas, place shredded cheese down center of a warm tortilla. Top with a couple of spoonfuls of eggs and sausage; roll up tortilla. Place, seam side down, in a baking pan. Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas, eggs, and sausage. Place in warmer until ready to serve. Serve with salsa on the side.
