Scrambled Egg and Sausage Taquitos

Scrambled egg and sausage taquitos are a quick and easy breakfast to prepare ahead of time for next day or for the freezer.


  • 1 12 ounce package pork or turkey sausage links
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper (or whatever color you like)
  • 1/3 cup diced onion (I used a red onion)
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 6 inch flour (or corn) tortilla shells
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (use your favorite cheese, I used a nacho cheese blend)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • In a skillet, cook sausage till done, drain off grease and wipe out pan. OR, you can grill the sausages till they are cooked through.
  • In skillet, add the butter and let heat on medium heat. Saute the bell peppers and onions until they are softened, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs and scrambled them until cooked through. Remove from heat.
  • Wrap the tortilla shells in a paper towel and place in microwave for about 35 seconds, just enough time to warm them so they are pliable.
  • Layer a bit of the cheese down the middle of each tortilla, add about two tablespoons of scrambled eggs, and a sausage link. Roll up tortilla shell, place seam side down on baking sheet.
  • Spray the tops of the shells lightly with non-stick spray - this will help them crisp up and brown.
  • Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until crisp and brown. Serve with salsa if desired.
