Not only does this recipe inspire you to skip spending money at the drive-through, it can be made super low-fat so you skip the calories too! Simply substitute egg whites, low-fat cheese, and vegetable sausage instead of turkey.

Ingredients

1 lb

turkey sausage, casings removed and crumbled

2 tbsp

butter

6

large eggs*

¼ cup

chunky mild salsa

8

8-in flour tortillas

¾ cup

shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1

chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, seeded and chopped (optional)

*Egg whites or egg substitute can be used instead of eggs


directions

Step 1

Over medium-high heat, in a large nonstick skillet, add crumbled sausage. Stir and break up with wooden spoon or heat-resistant spatula until browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Place on paper towels to drain and pour remaining grease, once cooled, from the skillet into a glass jar or aluminum can for disposal.

Step 2

Place the butter in the skillet and melt over medium-high heat. Add the eggs, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon or heat-resistant spatula until they’re scrambled and cooked through, about two minutes. Add the cooked sausage, chipotle peppers if desired, and salsa to the egg mixture and stir gently. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Warm the tortillas as directed on package. Place about ½ cup of the egg and sausage mixture onto each tortilla and sprinkle each one with cheese. To form the burrito, fold the sides of the tortilla in toward the middle and then fold up from bottom. Serve immediately or freeze.

Step 4

If the burritos won't be eaten right away, freeze them using the following steps: Lay a Ziploc® brand bag flat and place the burritos inside so they are lying side by side and not overlapping. You may need to use multiple bags depending on how many burritos you are freezing. Close the zipper most of the way and then press air out of the bag, gently smoothing wrinkles from the bag so that it clings to the food to protect against freezer burn. Finish closing the bag completely and freeze as soon as possible.

Step 5

When ready to eat, take the burrito out of the bag and wrap in a plain paper towel*. Leave it wrapped in the paper towel and microwave until hot, about 1-3 minutes on high, depending on your microwave.
