  • 18 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 16 oz container cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 package Morning Star sausage  cut into bite size pieces (optional)
  • 1 container chunky salsa optional
  • 10-12 flour tortilla shells


  1. In large bowl mix together eggs, heavy cream, and salt & pepper to taste.
  2. Melt butter in pan over medium-low to low heat. Pour in egg mixture. Let set for a minute or two.
  3. After eggs have set; stir ONE time. Just once. This is very important! Over-stirring scrambled eggs is the mistake most people make. The LESS you stir them, the fluffier and better they will turn out.
  4. After another minute, stir ONE time, then add one cup shredded cheese.  Wait another minute then stir once more.  Lower heat if necessary. Wait another minute then flip eggs upside down to make sure they are evenly cooked.  Cook for about one minute longer and they are done!  Remove from heat and let cool.
  5. Cut sausage in bit size pieces and set aside.
  6. Line tortilla shell with 1/2 cup egg and sausage then top with some more shredded cheese. Roll up each tortilla to make burritos, folding in the ends and rolling up. Once cool, wrap each burrito individually with parchment paper or saran wrap.  Divide burritos into two gallon size freezer bags (be sure to label bags first!)  Freeze until needed.
  7. When you're ready to eat, unwrap the burritos, wrap loosely in paper towel and heat in the microwave on high power for 2-3 minutes until hot and cheese is melted. Serve with salsa and fresh fruit.
