Breakfast Burritos


For those days when you want a little something different for breakfast. The tortillas I buy have 120 mg of sodium each, so this has a little more than many of the things I eat for breakfast. On the other hand, I don't even want to think how much sodium is in McDonalds' burritos. You could make your own tortillas ... but I don't.

1 sm Potato
1/2 lb Sausage,Homemade
1 sm Onion,Chopped
1 t Chili Powder
1/4 t Cayenne Pepper
1/2 c Egg Substitute
4 Flour Tortillas
1/4 c Jack Cheese,Shredded
Tomato
Salsa
Sour Cream

Cook potato in boiling water 35 minutes until tender (I cooked mine in the microwave) When cool, peel and cut into cubes. Brown sausage in frying pan (I used the wok), add chopped onion, chili powder and cayenne pepper. Cook for 10 minutes. Drain and discard fat. Add cubed, cooked potato. Beat eggs and add to pan. Stir until eggs are set. Spoon mixture into center of warmed tortilla, top with shredded cheese, and roll up tortilla to enclose mixture. For an authentic Mexican touch, serve topped with tomato, sour cream and salsa.
