Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Burritos Recipe

Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Burritos Recipe

"Soon after we moved to Arizona, I received this recipe," pens Anita Meador from her home in Mesa. "It's a big hit with everyone. For a fun variation, add part of a green pepper and some whole kernel corn," she recommends. "Or omit the potatoes and eggs and add your favorite canned beans and a little shredded cheddar cheese." —Anita Meador, Mesa, Arizona
