Sanibel Sunrise & Breakfast Burritos

January 19, 2012

Just before sunrise

Night’s deep blue lightens as amethyst & orange mark the clouds. Then all color fades when brightness on the horizon appears. It increases & intensifies until… until… until – there!

Molten gold with an orange & pink & purple halo peeks above the edge of the Earth. Suddenly glory rays stream up & out & I can no longer look at it.

Set in place on the very first day, the Father said,

“Let there be light;” and there was light.

I love sunrise every day, but at the beach, I LOVE SUNRISE!

Breakfast Burrito

Since I’m a low-carb gal, I would eat this without the tortilla. I’m also not into microwaves, but I know that I’m in the minority there. So make a whole batch of these, freeze them & stop going to the fast-food places for breakfast! Save time & money!


  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean Natural Sausage (or your favorite non-MSG, non-nitrate/nitrite brand)
  • 4 Tablespoons Dried Chopped Onion
  • 4 ounce can Diced Green Chilies (or 2 cans if you’re so inclined)
  • 8-ounce can Diced Tomatoes (drain liquid!)
  • 1 dozen Eggs
  • 1 package 8−inch Flour Tortillas
  • Your favorite Cheese, cut into slices
  • Picante Sauce


  1. Break apart the sausage & stir−fry it with the onions in an iron skillet until the sausage is browned.
  2. Add chilies & tomatoes.
  3. Continue to cook 1 minute.
  4. Set aside.
  5. Scramble eggs three at a time adding 1/4 of sausage mixture, until eggs are done.
  6. Warm 3 tortillas slightly to soften.
  7. Divide the cooked egg−sausage mixture evenly down the middle of each tortilla.
  8. Add cheese slice on top of egg mixture lengthwise.
  9. Fold the tortilla 1/3 of the way up, then fold again crosswise 1/3 of the way in & again to complete.
  10. Wrap each burrito in a 12×12 sheet of waxed paper.
  11. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving to allow cheese to melt.
  12. Repeat process until all the eggs/tortillas are used.
  13. Enjoy!

  • Serve with picante sauce if desired.
  • To Freeze:

  • After wrapping in waxed paper, place each burrito in large zip-lock freezer bag.
  • Remove one at a time when ready to use, thaw, reheat (I use a toaster oven rather than a microwave) & enjoy!
  • Note: If you remove a burrito from the freezer before you go to bed, it will be thawed by breakfast – no microwave needed :0)
