Ready To Go Breakfast Burritos

We always take time to feed our families but we usually grab a coffee and walk out the door with no breakfast. Here is a simple healthy breakfast that will take you two minutes to prepare on those crazy week day mornings.

Last Sunday, Kevin and I spent less than an hour making our Ready To Go Breakfast Burritos and it was well worth it.

Here are the directions: (exact ingredients aren't necessary)

1. Scramble 12-16 eggs depending on how many burritos you want to make.
2. Cook up 1-2 pounds of ground sausage.
3. As the sausage is cooking, in a mini food processor (or by hand) chop of 1/2 onion, 1 garlic clove, fresh basil and thyme. By the way, I use the herbs from my indoor herb garden and it has greatly improved the taste and health benefits of my cooking. Ohh and my pocket book. :) I also secretly added 1 t. of chia seeds the mixture. You can't see or taste them. :)
4. Add the veggies/herbs to the partially cooked meat. Grind the veggies into the meat and mix well.
5. While everything is cooking, cut out several squares of tin foil (about the size of a tortilla) and lay one tortilla on each square. Use either whole wheat or sprouted whole grain tortillas. The sprouted ones do not roll as well. We opt for the whole wheat tortillas.
6. Once all ingredients are done cooking, sprinkle cheese (preferably raw) on each tortilla. Than lay your scrambled eggs and ground pork mixture on top and roll the tortilla. Tightly wrap tortilla with tin foil.
7. Other yummy additions are salsa, peppers, potatoes.
8. Place all of the tortillas in a zip lock plastic bag and freeze. Label with burrito ingredients.

The next morning, take one frozen burrito out of the bag. Place in a paper towel and microwave for 1-2 minutes depending on the ingredients and size. ENJOY! :)
