You don’t need a lot of time to prepare a good breakfast. Breakfast doesn’t have to be sugary cereal to be quick. We offer recipes for Breakfast Wraps, Tasty Healthy Smoothies, and Hot Orange Tea. In the wraps, you have sausage, egg, and fresh fruit. And they are ready in minutes. And a cup of hot orange tea is always refreshing.
3/4 lb sausage, crumbled
4 green onions, sliced
2 apricots or peaches, pitted and sliced
4 eggs, beaten
4 burrito-size flour tortillas
In a greased medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage until browned, stirring to break up. Drain meat and wipe skillet of excess fat. Return meat to skillet; add onions and fruit. Cook another minute and remove from the skillet. Again, wipe skillet with paper toweling. Spray skillet with nonstick cooking spray and add the eggs. Cook eggs, stirring constantly until thoroughly cooked. This will take a couple of minutes. Heat tortillas by wrapping in paper towels and heating for a few seconds in microwave. Divide the egg mixture and sausage mixture evenly between the four tortillas. Roll tortillas to wrap around sausage and eggs. For the smoothies, you toss the ingredients into the blender, blend, and enjoy. And they are perfect for an on-the-go fruit, juice, and milk treat.
