Whoever decided to put an entire plate of breakfast food into a burrito was a genius...breakfast burrito inventor, I thank you! My husband loves them even more than I do, and they are a family favorite on the weekends... I was feeling froggy 🐸 this morning and decided to treat myself ☺️ This burrito is savory, delicious and while more on the side of a cheat meal, it can easily be made "skinny" by omitting the sausage and cheese, or using a fat free option. Sweet potato home fries bring this all together,
The Ultimate Breakfast Burrito🌯
You will need:
1 small sweet potato, cubed (about 1 cup)
2 servings egg whites
1/2 serving smoked turkey sausage, chopped (I used Hillshore Farms)
1 Flatout Protein-up wrap
2 tbsp salsa (we love Muir Glen's Garkic Cilantro blend)
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
Pinch of salt
1/8 Cup or 1/2 slice of cheddar cheese (optional)
For the Sweet Potato home fries: First, preheat the oven to 425. Next, peel* and cut the sweet potato into cubes and place in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and seasonings. Mix well then place on lightly sprayed foil lined baking sheet. Bake for about 15-20 minutes (may vary slightly depending on the size of your cubes) turning halfway through. I always check doneness by finding the larges cube and eating it ☺️
*If you are able to find good organic sweet potatoes, feel free to leave the skin on! It will help give them a nice crunch, just make sure to scrub well then dry before cooking :)
Whisk your egg and whites together, then scramble in a nonstick pan with the sausage. Top with your cheese if adding to melt it. Now you're ready to assemble this yummy burrito!
*You can warm your wrap in the still hot oven just be careful not to leave it too long because it will crisp and crack when you try to roll it!
Place your egg/sausage/cheese mixture on top of your burrito, then top with about 1/3 cup of the home fries, salsa...then roll up and devour!
