Ingredients

Scale

Breakfast Burrito Fillings:

  • 8 eggs
  • 3 spicy Italian chicken sausages, casing removed
  • 115-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, more as desired
  • 8 large tortillas (the 10-12″ size work best)

Home Fries:

  • 2 tablespoons ghee, butter, or oil of choice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, diced small
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced small
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced small
  • 4 medium russet potatoes, scrubbed and diced small
  • 1 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. For the Home Fries: Pre-heat oven to 375°F. Heat the ghee in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat until hot, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic, diced onion, and diced pepper to the skillet. Cook stirring often, until the vegetables are slightly soft, about 5 minutes. Add in the potatoes and cook, stirring often for about 10 minutes. Add more ghee here if the potatoes are sticking to the pan. Add in garlic, paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne and mix until well combined. Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft, tender and golden brown. Let cool slightly. Place in a bowl and set aside for assembly. Alternatively, whip up my Air Fryer Home Fries!
  2. Cook Eggs: Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. In a hot greased skillet, cook the eggs over medium heat until fluffy and cooked through, but don’t over cook! Set aside.
  3. Cook Meat: For the Italian sausage, heat a medium skillet with ghee or oil of choice. Add the sausage to the pan and cook until fully cooked through and no pink remains. Once cooked through, remove from heat and let cool slightly. Place sausage in a food processor and pulse once or twice, or chop finely.
  4. Black Beans: Drain and rinse black beans and set aside.
  5. To Assemble: Warm tortilla. Lay a tortilla flat. Place 2 tablespoons home fries, 2 tablespoons ssausage, ¼ cup eggs, 2 tablespoons black beans in the center of the tortilla. Fold in the sides and roll, making sure to use your fingers to keep in all of the filling while rolling.
  6. To Eat and Store: Either serve right away or wrap individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil tightly. Let freeze individually on a sheet tray, and once frozen place in a labeled bag for long term storage, up to 3 months.
  7. To Reheat from Frozen: Unwrap wrapping and place on a plate with the seam side down. Reheat in a microwave for 3-5 minutes until heated through, or place in a oven, wrapped in foil, at 375 and bake for 30 minutes, or until heated through.
