Baked Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast burritos are delicious. I love eggs, cheese and sausage stuffed into a warm tortilla shell. These breakfast burritos are super easy to make, you can even make them the night before so you can sleep in the next morning and have a yummy breakfast with no fuss. The egg mixture is poured over the filled burritos and seeps into the nooks and crannies all night. It bakes up light and fluffy the next day.

I made these for my "Breakfast Club" they were a hit. We devoured them with English muffins, hash browns and fresh brewed coffee with a dash of Kahlua! I just love "Breakfast Club" Saturdays.
Baked Breakfast Burritos
Serves: 8
1 lb breakfast sausage
3 c shredded cheddar cheese (1 cup set aside)
8 burrito sized flour tortillas
8 eggs
1 T all-purpose flour
2 c half-and-half
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 lb bacon, chopped into bite sized pieces
In a skillet over medium high heat, start frying the bacon pieces. When the bacon pieces are about half way done, add the sausage and brown the sausage and bacon together until done. Drain the fat. Let the sausage  mixture cool. Set aside 1/8 a cup of the mixture to sprinkle over the top. Place 1/8 of the sausage and  1/8 of the cheese mixture down the center of a tortilla. Roll up and place seem side down in a sprayed 9×13 baking dish. Repeat until all tortillas are filled.
In a large bowl beat eggs, flour, salt, pepper and half and half. Pour over the tortillas in the baking dish. Cover the dish and place in the fridge overnight (or bake it immediately).
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover dish and sprinkle remaining 1 cup of cheese and the remaining sausage mixture over tortillas, bake 10 minutes longer or until the eggs are set and cheese is melted.
