Ingredients

  • 4ounces - Cubed Red Potatoes
  • 4 - Chicken Sausages
  • Half a Cup - Diced Yellow Onion
  • 0.5cup - Diced Red Bell Pepper
  • 2cups - Chopped Spinach
  • 4 - Large Eggs
  • 8 - Egg Whites
  • 1tsp - Garlic Powder
  • 0.5tsp - Onion Powder
  • - Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 4 - Large Tortillas

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, sauté potatoes for about 3-5 and until they are softening. Chop chicken sausage and add it with onion and bell pepper to the skillet. Continue to cook for a minute or two and then add in spinach. Once veggies are tender and sausage is browned, add eggs, egg whites and seasonings.

  2. Fill tortillas evenly with 1/4 of the egg mixture and any other toppings you prefer. Fold in the sides of the tortilla over the filling and roll, tucking in the edges as you go.

  3. Spray cleaned skillet with cooking spray and set the heat to medium. When the skillet is hot, add the burritos, seam side down. Cook, covered, until the bottom of the burritos are golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip the burritos over and continue cooking, covered, until golden, a few minutes more. Serve warm.

  4. Make Ahead: The burritos may be assembled a few hours ahead of time, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerated, before cooking. To reheat leftover burritos, wrap in foil and warm in a 350°F oven for about 15 minutes. (They won’t be as crisp as they are fresh out of the pan, but they reheat well.)
