  • 1 c. Egg Beaters 99% egg substitute equiv to 8 Large eggs
  • 4 x Large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. water salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 3/8 ounce Healthy Choice Lowfat Breakfast Sausage 8 patties- 1 package
  • 1/2 x onion minced
  • 1/2 x green pepper minced
  • 10 x 98% Fatfree Flour Tortillas 1 bag/Mission brand
  • 1/2 c. shredded lowfat cheese *Sargento light
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or possibly margarine cooking spray

Directions

  1. Saute/fry onion and pepper in non-stick pan that has been sprayed with desiredflavor of non-stick spray. Add in cut up Healthy Choice sausage and stir into vegetable mix. (No need to cook sausage; it's fully pre-cooked.)
  2. Transfer to a bowl or possibly bag and chill. Lightly beat Large eggs and egg substitute with the water. Heat butter or possibly margarine in the skillet which was used to saute/fry the onions and peppers (or possibly use non-stick spray). When melted, stir in egg mix. Cook Large eggs till almost done, keeping in fairly large curds. Salt and pepperto taste.
  3. Combine Large eggs and cooled sausage mix. Hot tortillas in the microwave.
  4. Place about 1/4 c. of the egg mix in the center of a tortilla.
  5. Top with 1 scant Tbsp. of shredded cheddar cheese. Roll tortilla and wrap in waxed paper, tape to seal (label if making more than one kind).
  6. Place waxed paper wrapped tortillas in a zip-lock freezer bag in the freezer.
  7. To heat from freezer:Cook a single wrapped burrito in the microwave for about 2 min on 50% power (or possibly' defrost') (would take longer if you were doing multiples). Then microwave for about 1/2 minute more on full power or possibly till warm. Just peel the paper down as you eat so which all the filling stays in.
