Great make-ahead breakfast idea. Can be easily stored in the freezer and re-heat in the microwave to have on the go!
  • 14 turkey breakfast sausages or 1 x 450g package *
  • 5 whole eggs
  • ½ cup egg whites
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ cup fresh spinach
  • 14 small corn tortillas
  • ¾ cup dairy-free shredded cheddar (I used the Violife shreds)
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium/high heat and cook breakfast sausages on all sides until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, add eggs and egg whites into a small bowl. Add in salt & pepper and whisk with a fork.
  4. Spray the pan with cooking spray, then add the eggs to the pan and toss and scramble the eggs for 2 minutes, add spinach and cook a few minutes more. Remove from heat.
  5. Warm tortillas in microwave. On a large plate, place all tortillas and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 30-35 seconds until the tortillas are pliable.
  6. Divide the scrambled eggs between the tortillas and cover each with a bit of cheese.
  7. Place a sausage link on top and roll up, steam side down onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.
  8. Once rolled, spray them all lightly with cooking spray and bake for 10-13 min until they start to get golden brown and crispy around the edges. Best served with salsa.
To Freeze: Once the taquitos are baked and cooled, place in a freezer bag or individually wrap in plastic. When ready to eat, microwave each for about 30-45 seconds until warm.
* Check the label on your turkey sausages to ensure they are gluten-free/dairy-free. If you are in Canada, Lilydale has good ones.
