Sausage Egg Cheese Breakfast Burrito

Sausage Egg Cheese Breakfast Burrito

Introduction

This one saves about 300 calories from fast food burritos that you drive through and pick up. I make up extra and wrapp in plastice wrap individually and store in the freezer. I grab one and take it to work to warm up in the microwave for a filling warm breakfast. Lots of protein keeps me full longer! Save even more calories by using La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Fat Fee tortillas (but they are more than twice the price). Warm the tortillas a little in the microwave or skillet to make them easier to wrap. This one saves about 300 calories from fast food burritos that you drive through and pick up.

  • This recipe is good and it's easy. I also cut back a little on the sausage. A great make ahead, grab and go breakfast. I used egg beaters instead of eggs. - 8/2/09

  • We make this a lot at our house. I don't care much for sausage so we only use a quarter of a roll. Very yummy. However a burrito like this at mcdonalds is 300 calories total. You save about 25 and the temptation of the hashbrowns! 8) - 12/16/08

    Their burritos are tiny in comparison to these and they cost a lot more. Glad you liked it though. You can substitute whatever meat you want also but you have to change the calorie counts.
