IHOP Breakfast Burrito Recipe


  • Large flour tortillas (4 for 4 burritos)
  • Eggs (8 large)
  • Breakfast sausage (1 lb ground)
  • Frozen diced potatoes (2 cups)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese (1 cup)
  • Salt and black pepper (to taste)
  • Cooking oil (vegetable or canola)
  • Optional Toppings: Salsa, sour cream, guacamole, hot sauce


Prep the fillings:

  • Potatoes: Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the frozen potatoes and cook until crispy and golden brown, stirring occasionally. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  • Sausage: In the same skillet, brown the breakfast sausage over medium heat, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks. Drain off any excess grease and set aside.
  • Eggs: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the eggs:

  • Heat a teaspoon of cooking oil in the skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in the egg mixture and scramble gently until cooked through but still soft.

Warm the tortillas:

There are two ways to do this:

  • Microwave: Wrap each tortilla in a slightly damp paper towel and heat for 10-15 seconds on high.
  • Skillet: Heat a separate dry skillet over medium heat and warm each tortilla briefly on both sides until soft and pliable.

Assemble the burritos:

  • Lay out a warmed tortilla. Arrange a portion of scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes, and cheese down the center.
  • Top with your desired optional toppings like salsa, sour cream, guacamole, or hot sauce.
  • Fold the bottom of the tortilla up over the filling.
  • Fold in both sides of the tortilla toward the middle.
  • Continue rolling from the bottom, tucking as you go to keep the burrito secure.

Optional: Grill or brown the burritos:

  • Heat the same skillet you used earlier over medium heat.
  • Place the burritos, seam side down, in the skillet. Grill for 1-2 minutes per side or until they have a light golden-brown color and are slightly crispy.

Serve and Enjoy! Cut the burritos in half if desired and serve immediately.


  • Customize it: Feel free to add your favorite ingredients, such as onions, bell peppers, or different cheeses.
  • Make ahead: You can prepare the fillings (potatoes, sausage, eggs) a day in advance and store them separately in the refrigerator. Assemble and warm the burritos right before serving.
  • Freezing: Wrap fully assembled burritos tightly in foil and freeze. To reheat, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
