To make 4 breakfast burritos, start by whisking the eggs in a bowl. Melt the butter (salted or unsalted) in a medium size skillet. Add the eggs and cook over medium heat, whisking until they just begin to set.
Next, add the milk or heavy cream and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 3-5 minutes. Set aside.
Cook your sausage links per the recommended cooking instructions and then cut into bite-sized pieces and set aside. Cook the onions and peppers until softened and set aside.
Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 30 seconds to make them easy to roll, then lay them out on a clean counter top to assemble. Spread the grated Cabot Vermont Sharp Cheddar cheese down the centers of the warmed tortillas and top with sausage, eggs, onions, bell peppers and cilantro. Fold in opposite sides of each tortilla, then roll up, burrito-style.
Serve immediately with salsa. To freeze breakfast burritos, see instructions at the bottom of the recipe below.
