This homemade breakfast burrito recipe is sponsored by Jones Dairy Farm. I’m excited to partner with them more in 2022, especially because we use their products every single week. (If you’ve ever seen my Costco hauls, you’ve seen me recommend their sausages in BULK!)

Today features one of our favorites – Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Golden Brown Turkey Sausage Patties. This breakfast sausage is fully cooked, for fast and easy preparation and is made without binders or fillers (aka it tastes great). It’s also Certified Gluten-Free and allergen friendly, which is especially helpful for families that need to pay close attention to ingredients and allergens.

What is a breakfast burrito made of?

There are a number of ingredients to use in breakfast burritos, but eggs are obviously a staple (hence the breakfast title) and potatoes and typical breakfast meats are also common additions.

Breakfast Burrito Ingredients

This easy sausage breakfast burrito recipe is made with simple ingredients:

  • Vegetable oil – I use avocado oil, but any vegetable oil or butter will work.
  • Hash browns – I recommend using shredded hash browns to make this easy, but you could also shred your own if desired.
  • Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Golden Brown Turkey Sausage Patties – These sausage patties add amazing flavor and protein to the burritos. Dice them up before cooking with the eggs.
  • Butter – Butter is optional if you need it to cook the eggs.
  • Eggs – Use high quality eggs for best flavor. You can also use egg whites if you prefer.
  • Tortillas – Look for large burrito-sized flour tortillas.
  • Shredded cheese – Use a cheddar cheese or Mexican cheese blend.
  • Optional toppings – Sour cream, pico de gallo, avocado, cilantro, hot sauce, etc. (See more ideas below!)

Reheat gently in microwave and then toast in a skillet for best results.

This is the perfect breakfast burrito recipe for freezing! Let burritos cool completely and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. Label (unless you have a better memory than me, HA!) and store in freezer bags or stasher bags for up to a month.

How to Serve Breakfast Burritos to the Whole Family

I get it, feeding kids can be tough! But following the Division of Responsibility and knowing your job and your child’s job makes it SO much more enjoyable. You’ll be able to feed your kids any meal, which will help ensure that they are eating a variety of nutritious foods – with plenty of play food sprinkled in. 😉

For a meal like this, I would let everyone make their own breakfast burrito so they can put in their fillings of choice. And if they just add cheese, that’s totally fine.

Ingredients

Units Scale

For burritos: 

For serving: 

  • sour cream
  • pico de gallo
  • avocado
  • hot sauce

Instructions

  1. In a large nonstick fry pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add hash browns in an even layer and gently flatten with spatula so they cover the pan. Portion into 4 sections with a spatula so it’s easier to flip them. Let cook, undisturbed for 4-5 minutes. Flip over (best you can, no need for perfection) and cook for another 3-4 minutes until browned. Set aside on a plate covered with foil to keep warm. 
  2. Wipe out pan if necessary and cook sausage for 4-6 minutes, until browned. Lower heat to low and pour whisked eggs into sausage and gently scramble by stirring occasionally. Season with sea salt and cook until set, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Assemble burritos. Lay out tortillas on a flat surface and place a layer of hash browns on the bottom third of burrito. Top with sausage and egg mixture, then a sprinkle of cheese. Roll burrito up, folding in the sides. Place seam side down and repeat with remaining tortillas and fillings.
  4. Cook burritos. Heat fry pan or griddle over medium heat. Cook burritos, seam side down first, for about 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown.
  5. Freeze: Wrap burritos tightly in foil and place in a freezer bag. Freeze for 1-2 months. To reheat: Unwrap burrito from foil and wrap loosely with a damp paper towel. Place on a microwave safe plate and heat for 2-3 minutes, until hot throughout. Cooking time will vary by microwave.
