Feel free to customize your breakfast burrito with additional ingredients such as diced tomatoes, avocado, or hot sauce. You can also make a batch of these burritos ahead of time and freeze them for a quick and convenient breakfast option. Simply wrap each burrito tightly in aluminum foil and store them in the freezer. When ready to eat, remove the foil and microwave for 2-3 minutes until heated through.

Remember to cook the ground sausage thoroughly to ensure food safety. Use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C) before adding the vegetables.

For a healthier alternative, you can use whole wheat tortillas or opt for a low-carb option like lettuce wraps instead. Additionally, you can substitute the ground sausage with turkey sausage or even vegetarian sausage crumbles for a meat-free version.

Enjoy this hearty and flavorful breakfast burrito to kickstart your day with a delicious and satisfying meal!
