Ingredients

  • 5 Low-carb wraps *I used Tumaro's carb-wise wraps for this recipe
  • 10 eggs
  • 5 egg whites
  • 2 1/2 cups crumbled precooked turkey sausage
  • 5 cups fresh baby spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil spray for the pan
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese *optional: not included in calories and macros

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and spray with olive oil cooking spray
  • Add pre-cooked turkey sausage to the pan and cook until lightly browned, stirring often. Set aside to cool
  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk the whole eggs with the egg whites and set aside
  • Give the skillet another light spray with olive oil and add the baby spinach to the pan
  • Cook spinach, stirring constantly, until just wilted, cover and set aside to cool.
  • Spray another light coat of olive oil spray to the pan and pour in the eggs. Season with salt and pepper
  • Cook eggs, stirring often, until thickened and no liquid egg remains.
  • Allow eggs to cool to room temperature.
  • Lay out 5 burrito wraps. When all ingredients have cooled, start with the egg and spoon the eggs, evenly, in the middle of each wrap then top with sausage and spinach. If using cheese, top with cheese.
  • Roll up and tightly wrap each burrito in foil and place into a large meal prep container or freezer bag.
  • To reheat: remove the foil, wrap in a paper towel and place burrito on a microwave-safe plate. Cover and heat in 30-second increments until done, about 2- 2 1/2 minutes. Make sure to check frequently so they don't overcook.
