  • 4 - large flour tortillas
  • 4 - Yukon gold potatoes, peeled, parboiled until just tender, and chopped
  • - salt and pepper
  • 4 - green onions, sliced
  • 1 pounds - breakfast sausage or chorizo, browned and crumbled
  • 8 - eggs, beaten
  • 1 cups - grated cheddar cheese
  • - heavy duty aluminum foil
  • - salsa, optional, for serving
  • Directions:

    Season parboiled potatoes with salt and pepper. Add sliced green onions and browned breakfast sausage or chorizo. Stir to combine, then place into a plastic zipper bag or portable container. Refrigerate or store in cooler until ready to make burritos.

    At the campsite, warm a lightly oiled cast iron skillet over the campfire. Add potato and sausage mixture to the hot pan, stirring until potatoes begin to brown and mixture is heated through.

    Add beaten eggs, stir mixture and cook until eggs are scrambled.

    Place a tortilla on top of large square of foil, top with potato / sausage / egg mixture; sprinkle cheese on top. Fold each burrito, rolling it up in the foil, and place over the campfire.

    Cook burritos, flipping once, about 4 to 5 minutes per side depending on the heat of your campfire. Tortillas may get some browning and charring on them. Watch carefully so they don't burn.

    Serve with hot sauce or salsa.
