Bacon And Sausage Breakfast Burrito

If you’re looking for a delicious and hearty breakfast recipe, look no further than the bacon and sausage breakfast burrito! This dish is perfect for those mornings when you need something filling and satisfying. Plus, it’s easy to customize to your tastes. In this article, we will show you how to make a sausage breakfast burrito that is sure to please everyone in your family!

The Bacon

bacon

We are using bacon alongside the sausage in this recipe because who doesn’t love bacon? We are using center-cut bacon because it cuts some of the fat and calories out of the traditional cut bacon. You can of course use turkey bacon or omit the bacon entirely if you choose to.

The Sausage

For the sausage, we are using a breakfast pork sausage. along with the bacon, the sausage will add a lot of flavor to the burrito as well as protein. If you prefer turkey sausage just be sure to check the cooking time as it is leaner and will cook faster.

Scrambled Eggs

Of course, no breakfast burrito would be complete without scrambled eggs! We are adding scrambled eggs to ours for a little bit of texture and protein. If you want your burritos to be on the lighter side, you can use just egg whites.

Bell Peppers

Bell peppers are a great way to add some veggies to your breakfast burrito. They also add a little bit of sweetness and crunch. We are using green and red bell peppers in this recipe, but feel free to use whatever peppers you like.

Cheese.

Cheese is always a good idea, especially in a breakfast burrito! We are using reduced-fat Mexican cheese because it has fewer calories and goes great in all burritos. You can of course use any type of cheese you like, such as cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack Cheese, or pepper jack, or omit it altogether.

The Sauce

We are keeping it simple with the sauce because breakfast burritos shouldn’t be difficult. Simply mix sour cream and salsa and you get a nice creamy sauce with some good flavor.

The Tortilla

We are using a carb balance flour tortillas for our bacon sausage breakfast burrito recipe because it is a little bit healthier than a traditional flour tortilla. You can use whatever type of tortilla you prefer, but we think the carb smart tortillas work amazing and you won’t taste a difference. You can also grab burrito size tortillas if you want a bigger burrito. If you want to try something different, use corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas and make tacos. If you want to make your own tortillas check out my recipe for flour tortillas here.
