Breakfast Burritos

Loaded with sausage, eggs, red peppers, and rice and drizzled in a sriracha mayo dressing, these burritos are the perfect weekend breakfast or brunch, or great as a lunchtime snack and even better in a picnic with some lovely chutney. Serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 4 Jack & Eddie’s Finest Pork Sausages (chopped)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 4 large (burrito-sized) tortillas or wraps
  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¼ bunch of Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 and ¼ cups cooked white rice
  • ½ cup full-fat regular mayo
  • 2-3 tablespoons Sriracha

Method

  1. In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, cook the sausage until just browned through.
  2. Add in the diced red bell pepper and saute for another few minutes until the peppers is crisp tender. Remove from the pan and divide this mixture evenly among the four tortillas.
  3. In the same pan (drain any grease), add in the eggs, milk, and salt and pepper to taste. Scramble the eggs to desired done-ness and again divide the eggs evenly amongst the four tortillas.
  4. Coarsely chop up the parsley and dice the green onions. Add an even amount to each tortilla.
  5. Thinly slice the avocado and add one quarter of it to each tortilla.
  6. Divide the cooked white rice evenly among the tortillas.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayo and Sriracha with a dash of salt and pepper. Pour this mixture on top of each burrito (to taste) and tightly roll up the burritos. Enjoy immediately.
