A little zing in the morning isn’t a bad thing. As I’ve said before, my wife and I have been told by our dietitian to be sure that breakfast is a part of our day. Not being the kind of people that are content with a bowl of this or just your basic eggs and toast has forced inspired me to be a bit more creative in the mornings.
Both my wife and I are pretty big breakfast burrito fans, but even that gets a bit old after a while. I knew I needed to use up those last two tortillas in the fridge, but didn’t really have a huge desire to just go with eggs, salsa, and cheese… Again.
Closer inspection of the fridge gave me the answer in the form of some sweet Italian sausage and fresh Parmesan. The rest is history. Or it was about three minutes after it was done. These are fabulous alternatives to the basic breakfast burrito, with a tiny flair of Italy tossed in for fun.

What I would have done differently had I thought of it at the time:
I really don’t know. Maybe popped a bottle of canned marinara and cooked it with the sausage… I was too busy gobbling this thing down to worry about it.
