One of the best things about burritos is that they’re portable, packable and easy to eat. Which is probably why we’ve collectively decided they shouldn’t be limited only to lunch and dinner. Someone, at some point in history, thought, “We must make these for breakfast!” That person was a genius. And whoever they were, they’re why we get the amazingness of this Cooper® cheese, egg, and turkey sausage breakfast burrito. Thank you, unknown genius.


• 9 eggs*
• 1/4 cup milk
• 2 tablespoons black olives
• 1/2 orange bell pepper, sliced
• 1/4 cup turkey sausage crumbles*
• 6 large flour tortillas
• 12 slices Cooper® Sharp White, Yellow or Black Pepper cheese
• garlic hot sauce to taste
• 2-3 tablespoons banana or jalapeño peppers
fresh spinach leaves


• Preheat a medium frying pan over medium heat.

• Crack the eggs into a medium bowl. Add the milk and whisk until blended. Pour mixture into the preheated frying pan. Stir and scrape the pan constantly until eggs are fully scrambled. Once fully scrambled, turn off the heat and cover to keep warm.

• In a medium frying pan, sauté the black olives and orange bell peppers until just tender, then transfer to a plate. Place the sausage crumbles in the same frying pan and cook until browned and cooked through. Remove from heat.

• Place 1 tortilla on a microwavable plate. Spoon a portion of the scrambled eggs onto the tortilla, then layer with 2 slices of Cooper® cheese. Place a portion of sausage crumbles on top and sprinkle with sautéed olives and orange peppers. Microwave on high 30 seconds or until cheese is melted.

• Sprinkle with garlic hot sauce, banana or jalapeño peppers, and layer with spinach leaves.

• Fold the bottom of the tortilla up and roll the filled tortilla into a burrito shape. If desired, use a toothpick to hold in place until ready to eat. Assemble the remaining burritos in the same way.
