If you’re looking for a quick kick to spice up your mornings, Cooking Professionally has got you covered with these awesome Baked Breakfast Taquitos.


• 1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed

• 1 medium onion, chopped

• 3 cloves garlic, minced

• 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped

• 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

• 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, to taste

• 1/4 teaspoon salt

• 1/4 teaspoon pepper

• 6 eggs

• 16 small flour tortillas, whole wheat or white

• 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

• 4 tablespoons butter, melted

• salsa, for serving

• sour cream, for serving


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with melted butter.

Step 2

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the sausage until cooked through. When there’s no pink inside, drain excess grease.

Step 3

Add onion and garlic to the skillet until the onion is soft and fragrant. Then, add the peppers and cook for 1 minute. Add the Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Step 4

Whisk together the eggs in a mixing bowl, and pour over the mixture. Cook the eggs until scrambled.

Step 5

Assemble the taquitos by scooping a few tablespoons of the mixture on a tortilla. Top the mixture with cheddar cheese and tightly roll. Place the rolled tortilla into the baking dish. Repeat until you’ve used all the tortillas and mixture.

Step 6

Brush the tortillas with melted butter and bake for 15 minutes, or until the tortillas are golden brown.

Step 7

Serve with salsa and sour cream while warm!
