Breakfast Burritos

My day doesn't start right without a breakfast of some kind. I can also be rather picky about what counts as a breakfast. To avoid going without on days when we don't have time to cook, I put together this recipe for breakfast burritos that can be frozen and then reheated as needed in 1-2 minutes. On more leisurely mornings, you can add salsa to spice them up a bit or scale the recipe back to enjoy them fresh from the skillet.

The following recipe uses turkey sausage, which is recommended for a heart-healthy option, but pork breakfast sausage can be used instead. Using pork will raise the calorie count to around 385 calories.
