Few things in life compare to the experience of enjoying the early morning air and taking a bite out of that freshly made breakfast burrito, filled to the brim with refreshing and tangy salsa, fluffy eggs, and melty cheese all rolled together in a fresh tortilla. The Breakfast Burrito Casserole aims to capture that same experience with each helping, and succeeds wildly! Stuffed with savory sausage and served with enchilada sauce, Breakfast Burrito Casserole is a homecooked hero that can outcompete street vendors' fare in any taste test.
