Spicy Turkey Sausage Breakfast Burritos

I have always struggle to find a good recipes to make breakfast for work. I don’t have enough time in the morning to make anything healthy as I start work at 6:30am.

These Burritos you can make in advance and freeze them too.


  • 2 c. sweet potatoes, cubed into 1/2″ pieces
  • 2 c. yellow onion, peeled and cubed into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut in 1″ pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. chipotle powder, omit if you prefer less spice
  • 2 jalapeño, roughly chopped
  • 1 lb. turkey breakfast sausage
  • 5 oz. cheese
  • 6 extra large eggs
  • 2/3 c. milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 -8 ” whole grain tortillas
  • Non-fat plain Greek yogurt – optional


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°.
  2. Arrange the sweet potato, onion and bell pepper on a lined baking sheet. Toss with olive oil, salt and chipotle powder. Bake at 400° for 35 min, tossing once half way through.
  3. In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the jalapeño for 1 minute. Add the sausage and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until cooked through and crumbled. Set aside and let cool.
  4. Meanwhile in a separate non-stick skillet, cook the eggs, milk and a dash of salt and pepper over low heat, stirring constantly until the eggs are light and fluffy. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  5. To assemble the burritos, top each tortilla with 1/4 c. eggs, 1/4 c. veggies, a scant 1/4 c. turkey sausage and 1/2 oz of cheese.
  6. Tuck the edges of the tortilla towards the center and roll into a burrito.
  7. OPTIONAL – Add a smear of Greek yogurt on the end flap of the burrito so it stays securely closed.
  8. Enjoy immediately or roll in a piece of tinfoil and package in an airtight container. Store frozen for up to 2 months.
  9. REHEATING – Unwrap a burrito and heat it in a skillet over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side -OR- bake it in the oven in the tinfoil for 15-20 minutes.
