Low Carb Breakfast Burritos with Egg Crepe

1 lb. breakfast sausage
1/2 onion
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 lb. thick sliced ham, cut into bite sized pieces
big handfuls of chopped spinach
1 c. shredded 4 cheese blend
10 eggs

Brown sausage in big skillet. Drain sausage on paper towel. Saute onion and bell pepper in skillet. Add in ham until browned some. Add sausage back in. Add spinach until wilted. Mix in cheese. There is your filling.

If you are doing low carb and don't want a tortilla, I found some egg crepe things that you can make. Super simple! Just get a small, nonstick skillet warmed up. Mix 1 egg in a small bowl. Melt a little butter in your skillet first, then pour in egg. Move pan around until egg makes a circle shape. Cook for about 1 minute on first side. CAREFULLY flip! Cook for another 20 seconds on other side. Make about 10 of these, draining grease on paper towel after each one.

Store sausage mixture and egg crepes separately in fridge and just warm in the mornings. Eat like a burrito.
