These delicious breakfast taquitos are super easy to make and can be made in under 30 minutes. This recipe is perfect for a weekend breakfast (or breakfast for dinner) and will provide leftovers to enjoy throughout the week for those busy mornings.
I remember waking up on the weekends when I was younger to the smell of my Dad making Breakfast. There is nothing better than waking up to the smell of bacon or sausage cooking.
I would get so excited to see what he was cooking up for Breakfast. One of my absolute favorite things he used to make for Breakfast were his breakfast taquitos or breakfast burritos as most people call them.

These breakfast taquitos are great to make on the weekends so you can eat them throughout the week. They make a super easy grab and go breakfast, just pop them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and enjoy.
The entire recipe below can make at least two dozen taquitos depending on the size of tortillas you use and how full you stuff them.
For this recipe a large skillet works best. My favorite sausage to use is Jimmy Deans Hot Sausage. It makes great flavor without having to add any seasonings and it is not overwhelmingly spicy.
Heat your skillet to medium high heat. While skillet is heating up crack a dozen eggs in a bowl and whisk.Once skillet is heated add sausage and crumble with wooden spoon while cooking.
Once sausage is all browned and cooked through, drain grease from pan. Set aside on a paper plate lined with a paper towel to soak up the rest of the grease.
Turn heat down to medium and wipe out the same pan you browned the sausage in with a paper towel and let it heat back up for a few seconds.
Spray pan with non stick cooking spray (if needed) and pour in the whisked eggs. Let cook while stirring with wooden spoon for a few minutes.
When you see the eggs start to cook add the sausage back in (before eggs are cooked all the way like the picture below). *I truly believe this step is what makes them so good*
Keep stirring eggs and sausage until eggs are all the way cooked or cooked to your liking. We like to cook them a little soft so not well done.
Warm tortillas in a skillet or in the microwave. Pour desired amount of egg mixture into a tortilla, fold ends and then roll up. I love to eat mine with fresh salsa!
We usually roll up what we are going to eat so we can enjoy everything while it is nice and hot. When we are done eating I roll up what is left and store in the fridge for easy grab and go breakfast.
Eric likes his to have cheese in them but I prefer mine without. As with most my recipes you can easily alter this to your taste. You can use regular sausage, or maple sausage – mmmm may have to try that. Cheese no cheese add in salsa, veggies, be creative and use your favorite ingredients.
