Workday Breakfast Burritos

I love having these ready to go on workdays. I make 5, wrap in cellophane, and place in the fridge. I have one every day of the week and it's already cooked ahead of time. The turkey sausage, egg whites, and spinach save on calories. Just a half slice of white American adds so much creaminess and flavor without overuse. On your way to work, you can avoid the temptation of stopping at Dunkin' and piling up on empty calories. (Ps I love-hate Dunkin' ;) ) Just grab some salsa & coffee from your Keurig (or coffee pot) and you're out the door!

We're all looking for healthier breakfast options and to simplify our morning routine. These easy breakfast burritos are the perfect option. Using fresh spinach, turkey sausage, and egg whites make a delicious protein-packed, lower-calorie breakfast. The flavor is so fantastic you wouldn't guess it's egg white and turkey sausage. The tiny bit of American cheese adds that melty cheese factor you want in a breakfast burrito. Since these are prepped ahead of time, it's an easy way to avoid the temptation of a not-so-healthy breakfast. It's also economical. We used flour tortillas, but spinach or tomato would be delicious too. If you're low carb, sub a lower carb tortilla. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
