Ingredients

  • 7 ounce box fully cooked sausage links
  • 5 large eggs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese , your favorite kind
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves , chopped (optional)
  • 10 white corn tortillas , or use 6'' flour tortillas

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Add the frozen sausage links to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, turning occasionally, until warmed through. 
  • Remove to a plate, leaving a little bit of the sausage grease in the pan.
  • Crack eggs into a bowl and add a splash of water or milk. Whisk well with a fork and then add to the pan. 
  • Season with salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes, tossing and scrambling as they cook. (If using spinach, add it to the pan about 2 minutes before the eggs are done cooking.) Remove from heat. 
  • Warm the tortillas on a hot skillet or griddle for a few seconds until they are pliable.
  • Divide the scrambled eggs among the tortillas and top with shredded cheese. 
  • Place a sausage link on top. Roll up and place, seam side down, on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. 
  • Spray lightly with cooking spray and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with salsa for dipping.
  • Next time try French Toast Sausage Roll Ups.

Notes

To Freeze: Prepare and bake the taquitos as directed. Allow to cool completely and then place in a freezer ziplock bag. When ready to eat, microwave them until warm.
