Breakfast Burrito with Sausage Gravy


Breakfast Burrito's are one of my families favorite breakfast foods...no one ever complains...BUT there is only so many things that you can serve in a burrito and ONLY so often that you can make them before everyone gets tired of them. I was thrilled when I saw this new idea for Breakfast Burrito's on Pinterest. I knew immediately that I had to give it a try! I put my own little twist on it and now we have another SCRUMPTIOUS way to serve a family favorite!!!

Breakfast Burrito with Sausage Gravy

8-10 flour tortilla shells (your favorite...I like to use the "dough shells"...pre-packaged, that I cook myself)
8 eggs, beaten and scrambled
2-3 c. grated cheddar cheese (divided...some for filling, some to top burrito)
1 lb. cooked bacon, crumbled
1 lb. sliced mushrooms, saute'd 
12-16 oz package frozen hash browns, cooked
diced onions
diced chili's
diced tomato

*THIS is what I used in our burrito's, you can fill your's with anything your family likes

Cook shells according to package instruction (if you use the dough shells) OR if using prepared flour tortilla's, place a small amount of oil in a large frying pan. Heat oil. Fry shells for 15 seconds (approximately) on each side or until warmed. Fill cooked shells with desired "burrito fixings". Roll "burrito style", place on a OVEN SAFE dish. Top with Sausage gravy (instructions below) and grated cheese. Put under the broiler in oven for 2 minutes. Finish off with diced avocado, tomato and a dollop of sour cream if desired.


Sausage Gravy
1-2 lbs sausage, cooked and crumbled
1-2 packages of  "Country Gravy" mix

Cook country gravy according to package instructions. When gravy is thickened to desired thickness (you can add MORE water to the mix if you prefer your gravy a little thinner) add cooked sausage and pour desire amount onto prepared burrito before putting in the oven. 
**NOTE~ YOU CAN use a homemade sausage gravy if you choose, that would taste EVEN better...but I ADORE this way as well. IT tastes spectacular and is only 1/2 the work....and besides, EASY and fast breakfasts are AWESOME!!
