Hearty Breakfast Burrito with Cajun Country Rice

Leftover rice makes a hearty base for this filling and flavorful breakfast!

Course Breakfast


  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups leftover Cajun Country Rice
  • 1 lb. breakfast sausage
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 stalks green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • hot sauce, optional


  • Cook sausage in a pan over medium heat, crumbling with a spatula as it cooks. Once browned, set aside.
  • Whisk eggs with green onions and scramble over medium/low heat. Add a pinch of salt towards the end of cooking. Remove from heat.
  • In a microwave safe dish, top leftover rice with a damp paper towel and reheat in microwave to desired temperature.
  • Warm tortillas for a few seconds in the microwave or on the stove. Fill each tortilla with about 1/2 cup of both rice and scrambled eggs, and 1/4 cup each of sausage, cheese and pico de gallo. Top with some avocado slices and your favorite hot sauce (optional).
  • Fold in both sides of the burrito, then tightly roll closed. Wrap in foil for breakfast on the go!
