Breakfast Sausage Taquitos - 21 Day Fix Style!

These are FANTASTIC! 

I make plenty of them at one time (usually the night before), and they reheat quite well.  Great recipe for "batch-cooking"!  And, family-friendly, too.  If you give them a try, please let me know!

21 Day Fix Breakfast Sausage Taquitos

4 tbsp. coconut oil
1/3 cup yellow bell peppers, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
3 baby bella mushrooms, chopped
8 oz. Al Fresco Apple Maple Breakfast Chicken Sausage
6 large eggs
1/4 cup salsa
4 large low-carb tortillas
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. Italian Seasoning
 Pink Himalayan salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400°.  Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a large sauté pan, heat coconut oil over medium heat.  Add peppers, onion, mushrooms, and sauté under tender.  Add all spices, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

In a separate pan, over medium heat, brown the Al Fresco sausage.  Once the sausage is cooked all the way through, drain and combine with cooked vegetables.

In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs and salsa, and fork whisk until blended.  Add the egg mixture to the meat and vegetable mixture, and cook until the eggs are scrambled.

Lay the tortillas flat, evenly divide the cheese into 4 portions, and put a layer of cheese down the center of each tortilla.  On top, layer one-fourth of the scramble mixture down the center of each one.  Roll the tortillas tightly, packing the ends with any extra scramble mixture. 

Place rolled tortillas on baking sheet, fold side down.  They should not be touching.  Spray the tops of the taquitos with cooking spray.  Use additional spices to sprinkle the top of each tortilla.
Bake on the top rack in your oven for approximately 10-12 minutes.  Flip each roll over, spray once again with cooking spray, and cook for 10-12 minutes more, or until nice and crispy on both sides. 
Allow to cool and cut each one in half before serving.
Makes 4 Servings.  For the 21 Day Fix, each serving = 1 yellow, 1/2 a green, 2 reds, 1 blue, and 1 tsp.
