Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Burritos
Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Burritos were served at my house this weekend when we had our former Memphis neighbors as overnight guests. What’s great about this dish is that it can be made up the night before you want to serve it, and in the morning just add the gravy and cheese to the top and bake. When you pull it out of the oven, garnish it with sliced green onions, and you have a delicious breakfast you can be proud of. And while it is cooking, you can continue to visit with your guests. I like to use the instant white gravy packets from the grocery store just for the convenience, but you could make your own if you wish. My Breakfast Strudel Bread Pudding would be the perfect accompaniment to Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Burritos.
