Expert Tips

Change breakfast sausage out for cooked chorizo pork sausage for a delightful Southwest kick!
Wrapping the breakfast burrito in a paper towel before the foil helps to absorb the moisture from the burrito and prevent a soggy tortilla. It’s also perfect for microwaving on the go or at work when plates are not necessarily available.
