McDonalds Breakfast Burrito used to be a heavy-duty burrito that would fill you up until lunch. You can recreate this classic McDonalds Breakfast Burrito at home.
McDonald’s regularly changes their menu, things come and go all of the time. Sometimes recipes get changed. This is an example of their old breakfast burrito, it was heartier, and would definitely keep you full until lunchtime. I can remember the days when they actually cooked from scratch in their restaurants, and that wasn’t very recently either. You can make this classic burrito at home.
This burrito is made with a milk pork sausage, eggs, American cheese, canned green chilies, onions, fresh tomatoes, and taco sauce. I love to make a bunch of these on the weekend, so during the week I can simply reheat them and be on my way. You can reheat your breakfast in far less time than it takes a trip through the drive-thru. It can also be a great way to save money, and if you wanted to substitute out the pork sausage for a turkey sausage you have that option when you recreate your favorite copycat recipes at home.
For this recipe, don’t be frightened by the American cheese. I know it has a bad reputation. American cheese at times is the perfect cheese to use, it melts perfectly. You may want to go to the deli of your local grocery store and have them slice up some cheese for you so you can have it for this recipe.
When I make mine to reheat, I cook up all of the ingredients, and I let them cool to fairly close to room temperature before I wrap them tightly with plastic wrap. You can put them in the freezer at this point, or you can put them into the refrigerator, for me about 2 1/2 minutes in the microwave is all you need to heat these up for breakfast.
I hope you give this classic recipe a try soon!

- 1 tablespoon green chilies (diced those in a can)
- 10 - tortillas
- 9 eggs
- 6 ounces American cheese 12 slices

Crumble and fry pork sausage, stir and separate meat so it will fry in small little pieces. Remove from heat drain and rinse with hot water, drain water from sausage. Place drained sausage in fry pan add onion, green chili's and tomatoes, heat on medium temperature just until sausage and vegetables are heated through, stir frequently. Measure 2 cups of eggs and beat. Add the eggs to the pan with the sausage mixture. When cooked remove from heat. Cover and store the sausage mixture that is not used and refrigerate. It will keep for several days for your next breakfast. In the middle of one flour tortilla shell place one slice of cheese in the middle. Spoon one - two tablespoons of the egg mixture and roll up the shell. Place on platter and cover with plastic and pop in microwave just long enough to heat and melt cheese. Serve with your favorite taco or Picante sauce. You will find these are milder and relay great for breakfast. I like to place sour cream and little avocado in mine.
