Southwest Breakfast Burritos

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces turkey breakfast sausages, casings removed
  • 1/2 red or green bell pepper, diced
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 4 (8- to 10-inch) whole wheat tortillas, warmed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded pepper Jack cheese

Instructions

  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook sausage over medium heat, breaking into crumbles, until browned and cooked through. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon drippings. Add bell pepper; sauté until softened, about 4 minutes.
  2. Pour eggs over mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, gently the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking – pulling, lifting and folding eggs – until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  3. Spoon egg mixture into center of tortillas, dividing evenly; sprinkle with cheese. Fold in sides of tortillas, then roll up burrito-style.

4 servings

Tortillas can be stacked and heated in microwave oven, about 30 seconds.
