Ingredients

  • 4 flour tortillas 7-inch
  • 4 sausage brown-and-serve links
  • 6 eggs
  • ¾ cup Monterey Jack cheese about 3 oz, shredded , or cheddar cheese
  • tsp salt
  • tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp margarine or butter
  • salsa optional, bottled
  • avocado optional, peeled, slices

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Prepare sausages:

  • With a sharp, small knife, cut each sausage link down the middle lengthwise, ending up with 2 long pieces.
  • In an 8-inch skillet cook halved sausage links over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until brown, turning often with tongs.
  • Remove pan from heat.
  • With tongs, carefully remove sausages from pan.
  • Drain on layers of paper towels.

Prepare the eggs:

  • Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the salt and pepper.
  • With a wire whisk or fork, beat the mixture until yolks and whites are combined.
  • Add margarine or butter to the same skillet used to cook the sausages.
  • Cook over medium heat until margarine or butter is melted and bubbly.
  • Slowly pour egg mixture into the skillet.
  • Cook 1 minute without stirring.
  • Cook 4 minutes more or until eggs are firm but still moist and shiny, stirring often.
  • Remove pan from heat.

Assemble Breakfast Tortilla:

  • Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • Lay tortillas out flat on the baking sheet.
  • Spoon some of the eggs onto half of each tortilla.
  • Place two cooked sausage halves on top of the eggs on each tortilla.
  • Top each with cheese.
  • Fold the empty half of the tortilla over filling.
  • Stick a toothpick through the top of each tortilla to keep the tortilla from flapping open while baking.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  • Cut each filled tortilla into quarters (for smaller bites). Remove toothpicks.
  • Serve with salsa and avocado slices, if you like.
