My recipe of the day is with Foodie Extravaganza  when we post recipes as a group, this month on the  topic of potatoes for National Potato Month.

My  selection is for wet breakfast burritos,  made with sausage and potatoes (but no egg) with  diced peppers and a Texas style red sauce/gravy.

I eat a lot of eggs for breakfast  to keep carbs lower,  so I  tend to tire of them so while most breakfast burritos are egg-centric, I purposefully left them out of these.

They are patterned after the type of Tex-Mex wet burritos I love which are covered in a wet sauce and have melted cheese
