Meals to Love: Sausage, Egg & Cheese Burritos

I'm taking a break from the health related posts to introduce a new feature: Meals to Love.  A couple times a month, I'll post a meal we love to eat.  As many of you know, I love to cook, bake and talk about food.  (This blog did used to be called For the Love of Food, after all.)

Sunday we had one of my favorite meals: homemade sausage, egg and cheese burritos.  I love this meal because it's hearty, filling, simple and cheap.  One day I came home for lunch and we didn't have many left-overs.  Steve and I didn't want to get fast food and pulled together this meal based on the ingredients in our fridge.  Are you ready for the recipe?  Here it is!

Sausage, Egg & Cheese Burritos
1 lb ground sausage
7 eggs
shredded cheese (taco or cheddar)

Brown up the sausage and transfer to a bowl.  In the same frying pan, scramble the eggs.  Warm your tortilla for 10 seconds in the microwave.  Put some sausage down the middle of the tortilla and then some eggs.  Top with cheese and salsa.  Roll up your tortilla and eat!

How simple is that?!  For the kids, we skip the tortillas.  They're a little too little to hold them properly.  We put the eggs and sausage on their plate.  Katherine does not like the sausage and egg mixed together.  We found that out the hard way the first time we made these.  With Sean's dairy allergy, we skip the cheese for him.  We've also made it with green peppers.  It's a very easy meal to customize to your tastes.  Add some fruit on the side and you have a complete meal.  The whole meal takes about 20 minutes to make.  I love fast, simple and delicious meals.
