Breakfast Burritos!

My honey has been asking for this for years. Don't know why I never got around to it because these are really good! He used to enjoy the Sonic breakfast burrito. This is an homage to fast food burritos, but without as much fat, and without the animals. The recipe has a couple components, but you can make several burritos, so you get a lot out of your effort.

-Use your favorite tofu scramble that uses one block/1 lb tofu(I used VWAV), adding Follow Your Heart Jack cheese/other vegan cheese if you want.
-Bake some tater tots.
-Saute 1/2 tube Gimme Lean sausage style. I fry up fennel seed first, add the sausage and smash with a spoon. I also add a tiny bit of liquid smoke and about 1-2 tsp. brown sugar
-For a bit of a greasy factor, saute onion and pepper in some Earth Balance.

Put it all together in a burrito:
Microwave or put over the burner the tortilla. It makes it pliable. Fill with tofu scramble, onions/peppers, sausage, and tots and roll up- sides first, then roll up.

I like salsa and vegan sour cream. Don't can add jalapenos, olives, hot sauce, whatever you want.

Does Sonic really sell burritos with tater tots in them? I had no idea ... Despite what seems quite odd to me, those look really good!

He said the breakfast burrito used to. Or maybe he used to get them in's not much different than hash browns. I like the touch, but if you aren't into them, the burrito is still good on its own. I looked up the Sonic one and it was less than impressive. He likes mine a lot :)
