recipe: southwestern breakfast burritos for thanksgiving morning

Thanksgiving is right around the corner...eek!

Not sure I'm completely ready with a menu and table settings and dishes and centerpieces and dessert {why do I do this to myself??}...but I can say I've got Thanksgiving morning ready to go.

So before we start our busy day of 5k turkey trots and football games in the park and watching the Macy's parade, our family needs a good...but low maintenance!...breakfast to get us through til the big meal.  One of my favorite go-tos is breakfast burritos.

They're quick.
They're easy.
They're crowd pleasers.

Any food that all six of us can agree on...winner!

To make them, you'll need:

1 package Johnsonville Naturals Breakfast Sausage
1 package refrigerated "southwestern" hashbrown potatoes
6-8 eggs {I hate leaving just an egg or two in the fridge, so I'm not exact...I use what I have.  I also sometimes use a carton of egg whites if I have one}
2-3 cups Monterey Jack {or cheddar...or whatever you like best} cheese
Flour Tortillas

Salsa {optional}
Sour cream {optional}

Start by browning the sausage in a cast iron skillet and draining any fat.

Whisk together eggs and cheese in a separate bowl.

Add potatoes to sausage in skillet and brown.

Pour the egg mixture over the sausage and potatoes.  Scramble the eggs, being careful not to 

While everything is cooking, warm up some tortillas in the microwave {15-20 seconds, or whatever the package says}.

When the eggs are finished cooking, scoop a bit into each tortilla and fold each tightly.  Then I like to wrap them in foil like little swaddled baby burritos.

I crack myself up.

But it does make keeping extras in the fridge a lot easier. :)
