These loaded breakfast burrito recipe is full of your favorite ingredients and awesome seasonings. These great breakfast burritos are awesome and will be a family favorite for busy mornings!

We love breakfast around here, and we love new and creative ways to eat great breakfast recipes. One of the things that the boys love to order at the diner are these easy breakfast burritos. Once I figured out how to make them at home it was on!

Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Burrito: The Ultimate Morning Wrap

Yo, let’s talk about leveling up your breakfast game with the ultimate Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Burrito. This recipe is all about bringing that hearty, fulfilling start to your day with a perfect mix of fluffy eggs, savory sausage, melty cheese, and just the right touch of veggies, all wrapped up in a warm tortilla. Whether you’re about that morning hustle or just need something solid to kickstart the weekend, these burritos got you covered.


Can I use different proteins besides sausage? Absolutely! Feel free to swap in some bacon, ham, or ground chicken. This recipe is all about flexing to fit your taste and what you’ve got in the fridge.

How do I store these bad boys? Wrap ’em up tight in some aluminum foil or plastic wrap, then slide them into freezer bags. They’ll keep in the freezer, ready for when you need them. Just unwrap and pop them in the air fryer or microwave for a quick reheat.

What’s the best way to get my kids involved? Let them pick and prep the fillings. Kids love getting their hands a little dirty chopping up bell peppers (with supervision, of course) or whisking eggs. Plus, they can help sprinkle cheese and roll up the burritos, making breakfast a team effort.


  • Tortillas (whole wheat for an extra health kick)
  • Ground sausage (or your choice of protein)
  • Chopped red or gold potatoes
  • Purple onion
  • Diced bell peppers (for that color pop)
  • Eggs
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning (for that flavor punch)
  • Shredded cheese (because cheese is life)
  • Butter and olive oil (for cooking everything to perfection)

Where to Serve

These breakfast burritos are perfect for on-the-go mornings, lazy weekend brunches, or even as a hefty snack after a workout. They’re versatile, filling, and sure to satisfy.

Storage & Meal Prep

For the best experience, once you’ve cooked up your filling and assembled your burritos, wrap each one in foil or plastic wrap and stash them in the freezer. When you’re ready to enjoy, a few minutes in the microwave or air fryer will bring them back to life. They’re the ultimate meal prep MVP for anyone looking to save time without skimping on flavor.

Making Breakfast Burritos with Kids

This recipe is a fantastic way to introduce kids to the kitchen. They can help with simple tasks like mixing the egg mixture, laying out the tortillas, and even assembling their own burritos. It’s a fun, interactive way to share a meal and teach them a few cooking basics along the way.

Why This Recipe Rocks

First off, it’s packed with flavor. The combination of pork sausage (or whatever protein you’re feeling), with the spices, eggs, and cheese, hits just right. Plus, the addition of potatoes and bell peppers adds texture and a bit of sweetness that balances out the savory.

The ease of customization is a huge plus. Whether you’re into spicy food and want to add some hot sauce or sour cream, or you’re looking for something a bit leaner and opt for turkey sausage and egg whites, this recipe can handle it.


And let’s not forget about the convenience factor. Making a batch of these ahead means you’ve got a delicious, homemade breakfast ready to go whenever you need it. No more settling for whatever’s in the freezer aisle at the grocery store; you’ve got your own, superior version ready to roll.

So, there you have it: Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Burritos are not just breakfast; they’re a lifestyle choice for those who want to start their day right. Whip up a batch this weekend, and watch them disappear by Monday.

When it comes to a crown choosing your own breakfast burrito filling is a great way to start the day. I personally like a little pepper jack cheese to spice things up. Serve these breakfast burritos with a little fruit salad with fresh fruit and you have got a whole meal!

I hope you enjoy this great recipe for the best burritos!
