Mr. Wishes LOVES breakfast. I mean LOVES. He really only takes the time (or has the time) to eat it when he’s on vacation. Before we leave on a trip, he always says “I can’t wait for breakfast every morning”. Normal people look forward to the beach or the warm weather or sleeping in…..nope, not him. He wants to eat the biggest breakfast he possibly can that leaves him full until dinner time (sometimes he’s not even hungry for dinner). Needless to say, he loved these Baked Sausage, Spinach and Egg Breakfast Taquitos.

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

Want to know what I ate for breakfast every day while in Mayakoba, Mexico? Guacamole and chips! I love it when breakfast buffets have lunch options! Yup, 9 a.m. and Ashley has guacamole, tortilla chips, and salsa verde. I’m surprised I still fit into my pants by the end of the week. I consumed so much guacamole on that trip that word got around the resort and the employees actually delivered fresh guacamole to our room every night. I should have been embarrassed, but I have no shame.

So, these taquitos. These are seriously, horrifyingly, embarassingly easy. They don’t have guacamole in them, but they remind me of some of the breakfast food we enjoyed down in Mexico. Instead of traditional sausage, I wanted to lighten them up and use chicken sausage. That’s where Zweigle’s all natural, gluten-free chicken sausage comes in. With 5 different flavors to choose from, they make it so easy to incorporate it into just about any savory meal or appetizer that contains beef or pork. I used the Chorizo style in this recipe because I figured it would go perfectly with the taquitos, but they also have Spinach and Feta, Italian, Buffalo Style, and Lime Chipotle!  See, I really wasn’t joking when I said there is a flavor to go with any dish.

Did you know that Zweigle’s is a 5th generation family-owned local business here in my hometown of Rochester, NY? Well, now you know! I have lots of love for my local fave! They truly make the best tasting chicken sausage in all the land.

Oh, did I mention that these Baked Sausage, Spinach and Egg Breakfast Taquitos are freezer-friendly? They are what I will make for breakfast every day that I actually wake up early enough (never) and what I will make when I have no idea what else to make for dinner. That’s pretty much all the time, really. It’s definitely the perfect on-the-go breakfast while keeping that homemade flavor. This will surely become a new family favorite!
