5 from 2 reviews


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups frozen potatoes O’Brien (frozen potatoes mixed with peppers and onion)
  • 1/2 c chopped red peppers (optional)
  • 8 oz breakfast sausage roll (1/2 of a 16 oz roll)
  • 12 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk (or half and half)
  • 8 medium flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Melt butter in a large skillet. Add frozen potatoes with pepper and onion mixture, and additional peppers if desired. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until potatoes are crispy, about 7-8 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  2. Add sausage to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally until cooked thoroughly, about 7-8 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  3. While sausage is cooking, whisk eggs, milk and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Whip down skillet if needed. Add additional cooking spray if you are not cooking on a non-stick skillet. Reduce heat to medium and add eggs. Cook, stirring occasionally until eggs are cooked and scrambled. Remove from heat.
  5. To assemble burritos, divide egg, potato and sausage mixture equal between 8 burritos. Sprinkle with cheeses and a pinch of salt and pepper. Don’t overfill.
  6. Fold sides of burrito inwards, then roll to close and put seam side down. Continue with remaining burritos.
  7. Heat a grill pan, grill or skillet over medium-high heat.
  8. Add burritos, seam side down first and grill a few minutes per side until browned.


To freeze:

Cool burritos completely. Once cooled wrap each burrito in plastic wrap then foil. Store in a gallon size freezer bag for 1-2 months.

To cook from frozen:

Defrost them in the refrigerator overnight, then simply remove from the foil and plastic wrap and place on a microwave safe plate covered with a paper towel and cook for 2-4 minutes flipping halfway.

If you forget to defrost, no biggie, you can cook from frozen if desired.

I also like to reheat them in the oven so they don’t lose their crispiness. Simply remove plastic wrap and foil and place on a large baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes from frozen. If they are thawed in the refrigerator, then you only need about 10-20 minutes, hence the reason why I thaw overnight.

Prep ahead:

You can also make a batch of these to have fresh in the refrigerator for the week. These will last for 3 days in the refrigerator. Just reheat in the microwave, or if you like it crispy, reheat in the oven.
