How To Make breakfast burrito casserole

  • Cooked bacon cut into chunks.
    Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish. Cook bacon. Let cool. Chop into chunks and set aside.
  • Browning sausage in a skillet.
    Cook sausage, breaking it up into small chunks, and set aside.
  • Frying cubed potatoes with peppers and onions.
    Peel and cube potatoes. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add potatoes. Cook for about 8 minutes. Add the onions and peppers. Continue to cook until the potatoes are tender. Remove and set aside.
  • Scrambled eggs in a skillet.
    Whisk all the eggs together in a bowl. Add salt and pepper. Pour into large frying pan and cook until done.
  • Ingredients added to the center of a tortilla.
    Take one flour tortilla and lay it flat. Scoop some eggs, then some sausage, then some potato mixture, then some salsa, and lastly, some cheese.
  • Rolled burritos placed in a baking dish.
    Roll the tortilla shut, also closing in both ends to wrap up all ingredients in the tortilla nicely. Place in casserole dish. Repeat these steps with each tortilla.
  • Shredded cheese and bacon on top of the casserole.
    In the blender or with a mixer, blend together the sour cream and the second tub of salsa. Pour over the burritos. Sprinkle any remaining cheese and the bacon over the top of the sauce.
  • A slice of Breakfast Burrito Casserole on a plate.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cut each burrito in half, and serve... unless you are really hungry, then eat a whole one.
