Breakfast for dinner: Sausage-egg burritos

We ate these so quickly, I didn't take a photo.
I lifted this one from Taste of Home, where I found the recipe in the October/November issue. The recipe was part of a feature suggesting quick breakfast burritos, fruity granola bars and sweet potato muffins for grab-and-go pre-dawn nourishment on Black Friday. They made a perfect Monday brinner (breakfast for dinner).



Sammie's Breakfast Burritos for Two
4 eggs
1/4 cup salsa
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 breakfast turkey sausage links, casings removed
1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
4 fat-free flour tortillas (6 inches), warmed


In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, salsa, chili powder, cumin and pepper; set aside.

Crumble sausage into a large skillet; cook over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain. Push sausage to the sides of pan. Pour egg mixture into center of pan. Cook and stir until set. Sprinkle cheese over the top. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand until cheese is melted.

Place 1/2 cup mixture on each tortilla; roll up. Yield: 2 servings.
