Recipe Steps:

    1. Cook the Sausage:
        • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook 1 pound of breakfast sausage until browned and fully cooked, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks. Remove the sausage from the skillet and set aside.

    2. Scramble the Eggs:
      • In a bowl, beat 6 large eggs with a splash of milk (if using) and a pinch of salt and pepper. In the same skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter or heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the beaten eggs and cook, stirring gently, until the eggs are just set but still soft. Remove from heat.
    1. Warm the Tortillas:
      • Warm 6 large flour tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds or in a dry skillet for a few seconds on each side until pliable.
    2. Assemble the Roll-Ups:
        • Lay a tortilla flat on a clean surface. Sprinkle a portion of the cooked sausage, scrambled eggs, and shredded cheese down the center of the tortilla. Add any optional add-ins if desired.


      • Fold in the sides of the tortilla, then roll it up tightly from the bottom to enclose the filling.
    3. Optional: Heat the Roll-Ups:
        • For extra warmth and melted cheese, place the assembled roll-ups back in the skillet seam side down. Cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side until the tortilla is golden and the cheese is melted.


    4. Serve:
      • Serve immediately, or wrap tightly in foil or parchment paper for a portable breakfast option.


Storage Options:

  • Refrigerate: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or a skillet before serving.
  • Freeze: Wrap the assembled, uncooked roll-ups tightly in plastic wrap and foil. Freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and reheat before serving.

  • Roll up the dough, starting from the wide end, and tuck in the sides to seal the filling inside.
  • Place the roll-ups on the prepared baking sheet, seam side down.
