Mahalo to Foodland Hawai’i for sponsoring this post. As always, thoughts and opinions are my own.

As a busy working mom I know how crazy mornings can be, but also that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. Being able to make a quick and easy breakfast that can be eaten at home or on the go is something I value.

Breakfast burritos are just that, quick and easy. Fillings that can be customized to each person’s liking. Add a Hawaiian style flair with some crispy Portuguese sausage and eggs, a popular breakfast favorite in Hawai’i.

What are easy breakfast burritos made of?

  • Tater tots. Swap it out with rice or hash browns if you’d like.
  • Eggs. A great source of protein to start the day off right.
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Portuguese sausage. This can be found in the refrigerator section near the rest of the breakfast meats. Swap it out for SPAM, vienna sausage, bacon, or another breakfast meat of your choice.
  • Flour tortillas. I like flour, but you can use corn tortillas if you wish.
  • Shredded cheddar jack cheese. Or any shredded cheese of your choice.
  • Avocado. Add in a little healthy fat to your meal.
  • Maika’i Original Chunky Salsa. This can be found in the chips and salsa aisle at your local Foodland.

How to make easy breakfast burritos?

  1. For the filling: Cook the tater tots to package directions. Set aside.
  2. To a medium size bowl, add eggs, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine and set aside.
  3. Set a large skillet over medium medium high heat. As your pan heats up, dice up the Portuguese sausage into bite sized pieces. Add the sausage to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the doneness that you like. Drain the excess oil.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the Portuguese sausage and cook for another 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally until the eggs are scrambled and cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  5. For the burrito: Sprinkle ¼ cup of the shredded cheese over the tortilla. Then add a few tater tots in a line running parallel to your body. Followed by the eggs and sausage and a few pieces of sliced avocado. Top with 1 tablespoon of Maika’i Original Chunky Salsa. Repeat with remaining burritos.
  6. Fold in the sides of the burrito that are at 9 and 3 o’clock. Then fold over the edge at 6 o’clock and roll towards 12 o’clock to close. Repeat with remaining burritos.
  7. Place the seam side of the burrito down onto the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned. Flip and repeat on the other side.
  8. Remove from heat. Optionally, serve with hot sauce, sour cream, and diced up cilantro. ENJOY!

Tips for the best breakfast burrito

  • Fill your burrito with fillings of choice before toasting. This allows the tortilla to be more flexible and not tear while folding.
  • Sear your burrito with seam side down to create a seal and keep all the goodness in.
  • Don’t over stuff it. While having a hearty, full burrito sounds lovely, it makes it difficult to get a good seal on your burrito. Afterall, you don’t want all your fillings spilling out.

Frequently asked questions

How to wrap a breakfast burrito?

Lay fillings parallel to yourself on the lower half of the burrito. Take the sides at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock and fold towards the center. Then take the side at 6 o’clock and fold up towards 12 o’clock. Roll the burrito up towards 12 o’clock and seal seam side down on a heated pan.

What sauce is best for sausage breakfast burritos?

Can’t go wrong with some salsa. Other great options are hot sauce, ketchup, sour cream, etc.

How to store?

Any leftovers should be wrapped in foil and placed in an airtight container or zip top bag in the refrigerator. This will keep for 3-4 days.

Can you freeze?

You bet. This is one of my favorite things about this recipe. Make these ahead of time and freeze for future use. Wrap the burrito in foil and place in a zip top bag. This will keep for up to three months.

How to reheat?

If reheating from frozen, allow to defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Burritos can be reheated in the microwave. If you want to get that crispy tortilla back, pop it in the oven, toaster oven, or pan for a minute or two.
