Scrambled Egg Breakfast Burritos
Make these easy scrambled egg breakfast burritos for a satisfying breakfast or brunch meal. They are made with scrambled eggs, Italian sausage, cheese and tomatoes.
If you like the breakfast burritos served at your local restaurants, why not try making them yourself at home? You can make these in about 30 minutes. This is a simple recipe and by making them yourself, you can save a lot of money and still provide a satisfying warm meal. You will also have the added benefit of homemade food, which in my opinion, just tastes better all around.
One of the things I like the best about this recipe is the color from the tomatoes and the green bell pepper. If you are leaving them out for some reason, try to think about other foods with similar colors that will produce the same variety of color and texture. Even when just making these at home, you want your food to have appeal along with tasting good.
You can customize the recipe with other items you may have on hand like red peppers, different cheeses, and also add a bit of spice if that is what your taste buds like. If you need to stretch this recipe for those hungry teens in your family, scramble up a few more eggs than the recipe calls for.
