Hearty Breakfast Burritos – Hiland Dairy

Hearty Breakfast Burritos

My two favorite foods come together in this yummy breakfast recipe: Mexican and breakfast! These breakfast burritos are scrumptious, thanks to the savory sausage, gooey Hiland Dairy Cheese, fluffy scrambled eggs and flavorful veggies all wrapped up nicely in warm tortillas.

Diva’s Tip

You can freeze these breakfast burritos for later! Individually wrap them in plastic wrap, put them in a resealable freezer bag, and store them for later.
