Do you remember Christmas breakfast as a child? At our house we’d open up presents, and then Mom would head to the kitchen to make goetta.
As a child I didn’t think about what she was missing out on. But looking back now that I’m a parent? She missed being able to see our excitement as we opened boxes and first played with each of the toys she had carefully picked out. She missed our smiles, laughter, and a bit of that Christmas morning magic.
I want a special holiday breakfast that doesn’t take me away from all that. In the past I’ve made cherry-popovers. The kids loved it, but my husband wants something more filling and less sweet this year. He wants meat.
Sausage & Egg Breakfast Burritos
Tyson® products, like Jimmy Dean® sausage, have inspired me to try something new for the table this holiday season. This year, to go with our cherry pop-overs we’re having breakfast burritos. The savory combination of sausage and scrambled eggs is the perfect complement to those sweet pastries.
Breakfast Burrito Recipe
- Jimmy Dean® Sausage (Find it in the refrigerated section of your local Kroger store.)
- Scrambled Eggs
- Bell Pepper
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Salsa, Hot Sauce, and Sour Cream for Garnish (optional)
Brown the sausage in a skillet. I love the fact that the Jimmy Dean® sausage isn’t frozen because it means I don’t have to thaw it out ahead of time. Anyone else terrible at remembering to thaw out the meat you plan to prepare?
If desired, drain sausage on paper towels.
Saute’ the onion and bell pepper in a small skillet with a bit of butter.
Serve the ingredients in large bowls, allowing people to make their own breakfast burritos, just the way they like them.
To assemble your breakfast burritos, spoon a small amount of scrambled egg in a line down the middle of an open tortilla. Add sausage, cheese, onion, and bell pepper. Garnish if desired. Roll into a burrito and enjoy!
Want to add a bit of sweetness? Pair the savory burritos with a bowl of yummy muffins.
The holiday season is busy!
What I love about this holiday breakfast idea is that all the ingredients can be made a day ahead of time and reheated in the morning, meaning you won’t miss any of the Christmas morning magic trying to get breakfast on the table.
Plus, setting it up this way allows your family and guests to make it the way they like.
Kids don’t like onion? They can skip putting it on. Have a picky eater who doesn’t like food touching? Let them dish up individual ingredients on a plate and eat it with a fork.
The holidays are for spending time with family. This year treat your family to savory egg & sausage breakfast burritos and don’t miss out on the memories.
