Lower Carb Breakfast Burrito for the Freezer

Submitted by: GEMINI-SKY

Introduction

I got this recipe from a member of the Managing Diabetes Group! team. I left out the Salsa, Green Chilis, and shredded potatoes. I use whole wheat Tortillas instead of white flour ones... Carbs = 27.4 each
Also, I couldn't find just plain breakfast sausage on the list of ingr. so I used the maple flavored one.

Ingredients

    Egg, fresh, 12 large
    Milk, 2%, 1 cup
    Butter, salted, 1 tbsp
    *Jimmy Dean Maple Sausage (cooked), 16 oz
    *Onion - Yellow - 1 Cup, 1 serving
    *Peppers, sweet, red, fresh, .5 cup, chopped
    *Sargento Mexican Blend Cheese, 0.5 cup
    *Mission whole wheat tortillas, 24 serving

Directions

Cook breakfast sausage, drain in colander allowing grease to drain,
set aside in a large bowl.

and then add to large bowl with the sausage.
Saute bell pepper and onion in the skillet,
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
add to egg and sausage mixture. Mix well
Wrap tortillas in a damp tea towel, warm tortillas in microwave.
Place 1/3 cup egg and sausage mixture onto each tortilla and sprinkle with
some cheese. Roll up each tortilla to make burritos, folding in the
ends and rolling up. Place single layer of burritos on parchment
paper lined cookie sheets and freeze until solid. Then wrap
individually and package in zip-lock freezer bags.
(If I'm in a hurry I wrap the burritos in parchment paper and then in
foil paper and stick in a zip lock bag and throw in the freezer.) I
save and reuse the foil paper.
When you're ready to eat, remove the foil from the burrito leave
parchment on, microwave on high power for 1-3 minutes until hot and
cheese is melted.
