My Version Of McDonald's Breakfast Burrito
Everyone knows that Mcdonald's breakfast is the best breakfast.
And it turns out that it's pretty easy to make most of your Mcdonald's favorites at home - like this McGriddle, egg McMuffin, and Mcdonald's biscuits! This Mcdonald's breakfast burrito recipe is no exception.
What's even better about this homemade breakfast burrito recipe is that it's inexpensive, easy, and super quick to whip up! Also, with easily customizable fillings, you can make these burritos however you want.
Vegetarian? Use your favorite veggie sausage instead of pork.
Do you want to get fancy? Use feta or smoked gouda cheese instead.
Love spice? Amp up those green chilies and use spicy salsa!
If you're looking for a little something extra special to add to your burrito, check out our Mcdonalds breakfast sauce recipe. Or, consider throwing in some sliced avocado or a dollop of sour cream for a tasty twist.
- Pork sausage- I like to use mild sausage, but anything you want to use will work great!
- Olive Oil- for cooking the sausage.
- Yellow onion, fresh tomatoes, & green chilies- to cook with the meat and add flavor.
- Tortillas- I used four six-inch ones.
- Eggs- to cook with the meat and veggies for a loaded scramble.
- American cheese- this is what McDonald's uses, but feel free to use any cheese you want.
- Salsa- all breakfast burritos are better with some salsa!
By the way, if you're in the mood for lunch, you have to give these McDonald's chicken nuggets a try.
How To Make McDonalds Breakfast Burrito
Step 1: Prepare the sausage. First, crumble and fry the sausage of your choice in a pan over medium heat. The smaller you chop up the pork, the faster it will cook. Once the sausage is fully cooked, remove it from the pan and drain the excess grease. Then put the sausage aside in a small bowl.
Step 2: Cook the veggies. For the veggies, add a little bit of olive oil to the pan, and then add the onion, green chillies, and tomatoes. Cook until the veggies are soft, for about 5 minutes or so, then throw the meat back in the pan.
Step 3: Cook the eggs. Next, crack the eggs in a small bowl and beat the whites with the yolks. Then, add the beaten eggs to the pan with the sausage and veggies. and sprinkle some salt and pepper on top. Cook everything, frequently stirring, until the egg has cooked.
Step 4: Assemble burritos. To assemble, place a tortilla in a heated skillet and top with the salsa and cheese. Let the pan heat until the cheese starts to melt. Then, carefully take the tortilla out of the pan and stuff it with the filling. To successfully roll your burrito, start by arranging your fillings in a line down the center of the tortilla. Then, fold the sides of the tortilla inwards over the filling. Finally, roll the bottom of the tortilla over the top of the fillings - tucking as you roll. I like to then wrap them in paper to hold everything together before serving.
How I Recommend Storing and Reheating Leftovers
I recommend wrapping the burritos in parchment paper and storing them in an airtight container or sealed bag. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for 2 months.
To reheat the burritos, you can place them in the microwave for about 1 minute or 3 minutes for frozen burritos. Also, when microwaving a frozen burrito, wrap it in a damp paper towel (so the tortilla does not dry out) and stop halfway through to turn the burrito over.
