This loaded Smoky Maple Breakfast Burrito uses maple sausage, eggs, and potatoes to start your day off right! You can make a little or a lot, and freeze the rest for easy grab-and-go mornings.
Breakfast is the easiest meal in the world to forget about, isn’t it? Mornings are tough, and when you are dealing with things like difficult kids, a job across town, or just feeling the effects of staying up too late the night before, starting the day with a mess in the kitchen is not something most people want to do! Luckily, this ridiculously easy Smoky Maple Breakfast Burrito recipe is here for you! Not only do these burritos taste amazing, but they can also make life so much easier when you make extra and freeze them for later. Then, all you have to do is unwrap, microwave for a minute, and voila – instant mess-free breakfast that you can take right on out the door!
I think it is safe to say that everyone loves a good breakfast burrito, right? These are loaded with eggs, smoked gouda cheese, diced potato, crisp bell pepper, and an amazing maple sausage that is so good you will definitely want to keep some for later! What’s great about this particular recipe is that everything is made in one pot, so cleanup really is a breeze, and you don’t even have to use plates because everything is wrapped inside of a warm tortilla. I don’t know about you, but I am all for keeping my mess to a minimum!
Smoky Maple Breakfast Burrito: Make-Ahead Breakfast
Another thing that makes these burritos amazing is that you can get a week’s worth of breakfast out of making it just one time. This recipe as-is will get you 6-8 burritos, depending on how full you like to stuff your tortillas. If you are into meal planning or freezer meals, this is perfect for making ahead! If you are making these to freeze, all you have to do is cook, wrap, and then store in a large gallon zip top bag for easy access. Once you are ready to eat one, just take it out of the bag, put it on a plate, wrap the plate in a paper towel, and microwave for 90 seconds on each side.
You can also get creative with your toppings, and add extras like tomato, onions, or more! I like adding some pico to mine, but the possibilities are endless! Now grab the recipe below, and check out the super easy how-to video!
- 10 eggs
- 1 cup maple flavored breakfast sausage (or meatless veggie sausage)
- 1 cup diced potato - skin on
- 1/2 green bell pepper - diced
- 1/2 cup smoked gouda cheese
- 1 tbsp almond milk
- 1 tsp chili powder
- Pinch of salt
- Olive oil or coconut oil (for your pan)
- First, cut and cook your sausage in a large skillet with a small amount of olive oil until browned on all sides. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, mix diced potato, chili powder, a pinch of salt, and 1 tsp olive oil.
- Heat up a large, high-walled skillet over medium-high heat, and pour your potatoes in. Cover and cook, stirring frequently for 10 minutes.
- Once potatoes feel soft on the inside, add your bell pepper, stir, and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Set aside with your sausage.
- Crack your eggs into the bowl your potatoes were in, add in your milk, and scramble with a fork.
- Pour into your skillet, and cook for 10 minutes. Stir frequently to break up eggs and make sure all sides are cooked. Once eggs aren't liquid anymore, add in sausage and potato mixture, and cook for a final 5 minutes.
- To serve, add a heaping 1/2 - 1 cup of mixture to the center of an 8-10 inch tortilla, sprinkle with smoked gouda cheese, and fold into a burrito. If eating immediately, place your burrito back in your skillet and heat for 2-3 minutes on each side.
- If making for later, wrap up all burritos, let cool for 10 minutes, then freeze in a large zip top bag.
Home Chef Tip: If you don't have maple sausage or are using veggie sausage, mix 1-2 tsp maple syrup in with your sausage before cooking. This will help give it a nice maple flavor!
