What you will need:
- Soft tortilla shells
- Sausage links
- Sliced cheese
- Cooking spray
- Plastic wrap
- Cook the eggs. Turn the stovetop on to a medium heat. Spray a thin layer of cooking spray on the pan. Mix the eggs in a bowl and pour them into the pan. Scramble the eggs until they are completely cooked. Cook at least one egg per burrito.
- Cook the meat. Heat up the meat in the microwave or the skillet. If you are using the skillet, heat the sausage until it is golden brown on the outside and light brown on the inside. Important: Cut the sausage to make sure the inside is not pink.
- Make the burrito. Lay a tortilla shell on a plate. Place one slice of cheese on the burrito. Place the sausage link near one edge of the burrito and spoon a small portion of eggs on top (one egg per burrito).
- Fold the burrito. Fold the bottom and top ends of the burrito over the food. Carefully lift the end of the burrito with the toppings and fold it over the food. Roll the burrito tightly until you reach the opposite edge of the burrito. Face the seam downward to hold the burrito together.
- Put salsa and sour cream on the burrito. Spread salsa and sour cream onto the burrito. Important: Don't put salsa and sour cream on the burritos you want to freeze.
- Freeze the extra burritos. Cut a piece of plastic wrap and place a burrito on one edge. Lift the edge with the burrito and tuck it under the burrito. Roll the burrito in the plastic wrap until you reach the other end. Fold the bottom and top edges of the burrito inward. Place the burritos in the freezer.
