Baked Sausage, Spinach and Egg Breakfast Taquitos

This was a clean out the fridge breakfast that turned out to be AMAZING and something that I would eat over and over again.  I had spinach leftover from this Easy Weeknight Bowtie Pasta, salsa leftover from this Slow Cooker Fiesta Chicken, tortillas leftover from these Chicken Enchiladas and a little sausage leftover from biscuits and gravy.  I hate wasting food, so I try to find ways to use up every last thing.  Stuffing everything inside a tortilla is the perfect way to use of those items.

Baked taquitos are my FAVORITE.  There is no reason to fry a taquito ever again, okay!! They get plenty crispy by baking them and they are so much healthier that way.  These breakfast taquitos are fantastic.  

I shared this recipe over at The Recipe Critic's site.  Click HERE to check it out.

(Printable Recipe) 

1/2 Lb. sausage
2 c. fresh spinach, chopped
1/3 c. diced green bell pepper
6 large eggs
2 Tbl. crumbled Feta cheese
1/2 c. shredded cheese, any flavor (Cheddar, Pepper Jack, Monterey, etc. . . )
1/2 c. salsa, plus more for serving
7 medium tortillas, corn or flour
cooking spray
kosher salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Brown sausage in a large skillet over medium heat.  When sausage is almost cooked through, add the chopped spinach and bell pepper and saute for a few minutes.  Crack eggs into a bowl, whisk and add to skillet.  Stir occasionally until eggs are just barely cooked through.  Remove from heat and stir in the Feta cheese. 

Microwave tortillas for 30 seconds or until pliable.  Divide filling between tortillas.  Top each with a little shredded cheese and salsa.  Roll up tightly and place, seam-side down, on a baking sheet that has been lined with foil (this makes for a much easier clean up).  Spray tops of taquitos lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with a little kosher salt.  Bake for 10-15 minutes or until crispy.  Serve with extra salsa for dipping.  Makes 7 taquitos.   


  1. how many taquitos constitute a serving?

    1. It depends on how hungry you are. Sometimes I can eat two and sometimes I can eat three. I would say at least two per person and possibly more.
