14maple breakfast sausage links
1red bell pepperseeded and diced
1green bell pepperseeded and diced
1mediumyellow onionpeeled and diced
Salt and pepper to taste
10burrito-size flour tortillas
Cook the sausage according to package directions. Remove the sausage from the skillet and let it cool on a cutting board. Slice the links into small pieces once cool enough to handle.
Cook peppers and onions in a skillet with 1 tablespoon canola oil over medium heat. The veggies should be soft but not browned, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl and wipe out the skillet.
Beat the eggs with 2 tablespoons of water and salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the same skillet and cook the eggs until they're soft scrambled. (Don't overcook them!)
To build the burrito: Divide the sausage pieces, veggies, eggs, and cheese into 10 portions. First, put some eggs in the center of a tortilla. Then top with sausage, peppers, and onions and sprinkle with cheese. Roll up the tortilla tucking one end up and over the filling, folding in the sides, and then rolling up into a burrito. Repeat with remaining ingredients. (I usually lay out all 10 tortillas and build these burritos in an assembly line.)
Freeze the burritos on cookie trays and then wrap them in foil and place in freezer bags.
When ready to cook, unwrap a burrito from the foil and loosely wrap it in a paper towel. Microwave for 2 minutes or until hot. (Everything is already. The microwave heats up the filling and melts the cheese.) Let your burrito sit for 1 minute before serving.
