The second breakfast idea is like a burrito, but not really, so wait, let me show you. For this you will need a plain tortilla, some sausage, Philadelphia cheese and also a corn if you want. So, I just slice the tortilla in half and then put some Philadelphia cheese. On top of that I add some sausage and then corn on other side and that’s pretty much all of the ingredients. And now you just wrap it all together and it’s ready. So, it’s really quick and easy to make. And definitely, very nutritious. You can even take this with you to school.
