Spicy Sausage Breakfast Taquitos
These taquitos are easy to make and simulate their full-carb counterparts quite nicely. You can make them with any of your favorite low-carb meats, vegetables or cheeses. These taquitos are delicious served with sour cream and salsa on the side.
4 Tbs. Butter – Divided
1/3 Cup Yellow Bell Peppers - Chopped
1/4 Cup Onion - Chopped
3 Baby Bella Mushrooms - Chopped
8 oz. Hot Italian Breakfast Sausage
6 Large Eggs
¼ Cup Salsa
4 Large Low Carb Tortillas
1 Cup Sharp White Cheddar Cheese - Shredded
½ tsp. Onion Salt
½ tsp. Italian Seasoning
(2 Tbs. Peace and Love)
Preheat oven to 400° Lightly oil or butter a baking sheet.
In a large sauté pan over medium heat, add 2 Tbs. butter, peppers, onion, mushrooms, and salt and pepper, to taste. Saute until tender.
In a separate pan, over medium heat, brown the sausage. Once the sausage is cooked all the way through, drain excess grease, and combine with vegetables.
In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs and salsa, and fork whisk.
Add egg mixture to the meat/vegetable mixture and cook until the eggs are scrambled.
Lay the tortillas flat and put a layer of cheese down the center of each one. Next, layer 1/4 of the scramble mixture down the center of each one. Top each one with another layer of cheese.
Roll tortillas tightly, packing the ends with any extra scramble mixture. Place on baking sheet, fold side down.
Melt remaining 2 Tbs. of butter and brush on top of the rolled tortillas. Combine onion salt and Italian seasoning and sprinkle the top of each tortilla.
Bake on the top rack 10-12 minutes. Flip each roll over, give another light brushing of melted butter and cook for 10-12 minutes more or until nice and crispy on both sides. Allow to cool and cut each one in half before serving.
