My Dad’s Breakfast Burritos

In honor of my Dad’s birthday today I wanted to share his Breakfast Burrito recipe. These are a family favorite. My dad always makes them on beach vacation and when we go home and visit. They make quite a few burritos and save well and reheat well. Great if you have company staying at your house for the weekend. We like to add a little hot sauce or salsa to ours. Enjoy!

Happiest Birthday to the most wonderful Dad in the world.


1 package fajita size shells

12-14 eggs

2-3 tablespoons milk

1 package sausage (We use Jimmy Dean)

I cup shredded cheddar

American cheese (any sliced cheese works)

1 small onion diced

1 small green bell pepper diced

In a skillet sauté onions and bell pepper about 5-7 minutes. Remove from pan. Use same pan to cook sausage. Then add in cook peppers with sausage. drain top with paper towel to remove extra grease.

      Yes you can freeze and to reheat just turn oven to 350 and bake about 20 minutes. Just keep wrapped in foil.
