Baked Breakfast Burritos

Aaron LOVES these! They came out of a casserole cookbook (oh, casseroles, the epitome of white trash.) Every time I make them I think to myself, "Gosh, these don't look like they are going to be very good," but they never disappoint. We make them for breakfast or dinner.

1 pound sausage (I love using the bacon sausage)
1/2 cup crumbled bacon
8 mushrooms sliced (optional)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
1 garlic clove, minced (or a heaping teaspoon out of the jar)
8 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
3/4 shredded cheddar cheese, divided (or your favorite)
3 tbls. enchilada or taco sauce
1 tbls. butter or margarine
6 large flour tortillas

1. In large skillet, cook sausage until brown, then add bacon. Remove to paper towels, reserving 1 tbls. of drippings.

2. Saute mushrooms, pepper, onion and garlic in drippings until tender, then turn to low.

3. In a bowl, beat eggs, sour cream. Add 1/3 cup cheese and enchilada sauce.

4. In another skillet, melt butter; add egg mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until eggs are completely set.

5. Add sausage and egg mixture to veggies. Spoon onto tortillas and roll up. Place seam down in a greased 13 x 9 baking dish.

6. Spoon some extra enchilada/taco sauce over each burrito, sprinkle with cheese and bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes (until cheese is melted.
