Potato, Egg and Soysage Burritos

Potato Egg & Soysage Burritos
Makes 4 Servings

10 oz. peeled baking potato, raw and diced
4 eggs
2 Morningstar farms sausage patties
2 tbsp fat free milk
2 tsp olive oil
4 Mission carb balance flour tortillas
Garlic Powder, Creole Seasoning, Salt & Pepper to taste

Set a large pan over medium heat; spray with cooking spray. Whisk together eggs, milk and a dash of salt and creole. Heat up sausage per box instructions and cut into small pieces. Drop potatoes on the pan (they’ll sizzle!). Sprinkle with garlic powder, creole seasoning and pepper. Stir for 1 minute, then add olive oil. Stir and let it set for 5-6 minutes. Then stir and let it sit for another 5-6 minutes. After 12 minutes or once they look brown, taste a thicker potato piece. If it’s cooked, heat tortillas in the microwave, and pour egg mixture and sausage on top of potato mixture. Stir for 2-3 minutes until egg are cooked, then removed the tortillas from the microwave and cover each in the potato/egg/sausage mixture.

Tips: I liked mine plain; Austin added a ¼ tsp of hot sauce. You could also add salsa since it’s a low-calorie condiment, or even add chopped veggies like onions or peppers. I personally wouldn’t add cheese as I don’t think you’d be able to taste it. As far as cooking potatoes- the smaller the pieces the quicker they’ll cook, so my best advice is do like noodles – taste one before declaring them done!

Review: These are a childhood favorite of mine! You could definitely cut corners using hashbrowns or boiling the potatoes to make them super soft, but this way makes them crispy and oily - love it!
