Breakfast Burritos

For a flavorful, hearty and healthy start. (serves 2)


1/4 avocado

4 corn tortillas

6 egg whites

2 soy sausage patties

prepared tomato salsa

1 scallion, chopped


Peel avocado, dice and set aside. Wrap tortillas in foil and place in a 350-degree oven to heat while preparing the eggs and sausage. In a nonstick skillet or a skillet sprayed with pan spray over medium-low heat, crumble sausage patties and stir just long enough to heat the sausage thoroughly. Remove the sausage to a covered bowl and set aside.

Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel, spray with pan spray and return skillet to the heat. Whisk the egg whites with a fork and pour into the heated pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until eggs are scrambled.

To assemble, place two tortillas on each of two plates. Evenly divide sausage, egg whites and avocado among the tortillas. Top with chopped scallions and salsa, and roll tortilla around filling.
