Serves: 6 burritos
gluten-free, grain-free, options for dairy-free, paleo, whole30, vegetarian
  • 6 burrito sized tortillas (we use Siete Foods grain-free burrito tortillas)
  • 8 large eggs, beaten
  • 8-12 oz breakfast sausage, bacon or other protein of choice
  • ½ cup refried beans, optional
  • ½ cup salsa
  • ¼ - ½ cup cheese of choice (optional)
  • options to serve with: salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cilantro
  1. Heat the tortillas in the microwave or in a dry pan on the stovetop, heating makes sure that the tortillas are pliable and won't break when rolling.
  2. Heat a large well-seasoned cast iron or non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage (or bacon) and cook, stirring frequently, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the meat with slotted spoon, leave any drippings in the pan, add the eggs to the same pan, scramble and cook until just cooked through. Transfer the eggs to a plate or bowl.
  3. Assemble all of your burrito ingredients.
  4. Place tortilla on a flat surface
  5. Spread about 1 tablespoon of beans and spread towards one side of the tortilla.
  6. Layer about 1-1.5 eggs and 1 tablespoon of chopped sausage per burrito
  7. Sprinkle some salsa and cheese.
  8. Add any other ingredients that you'd like.
  9. Do not overfill the tortilla or you risk it ripping
  10. Take the side of the tortilla that you put the ingredients. Start rolling that inward.
  11. At the same time, fold in the two sides over the filling and continue to roll, keeping the filling inside the middle.
  12. Continue rolling the longer part of the burrito and if possible, keep the flap on the bottom to help it stay closed.
  13. Heat a dry non-stick pan over a medium-low heat.
  14. Place the burrito flap side down and heat it for 1-2 minutes to seal it closed.
  15. If eating right away, you can flip the burrito to the opposite side cook for another 1-2 minutes to get a nice crisp. Alternatively can also place your burritos seal side down on a sheet pan and place under the broiler for 3-5 minutes until golden brown.
  16. Serve warm.
  17. If freezing your batch, allow the burritos to fully coo after sealing. Wrap TIGHTLY in plastic wrap, then aluminum foil and place in a freezer safe bag. Label them and store in freezer 1-2 months. To reheat place a damp paper towel on top of the burrito and heat for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Depending on the amount of filling you may need to add an additional 30-60 seconds.
