Sausage Breakfast Burrito (Cholesterol-Free and Low-Fat)

What You'll Need
1/3 c. liquid egg whites (equivalent to 2 eggs)
1/8c. shredded soy cheese (I used soy-station 3 cheese blend)
1 Tbs diced tomato
1 Tbs diced green onion
1 Tbs diced yellow onion
1 Tbs diced red bell pepper
2 tsp cilantro, minced

2 veggie sausage links (I used Morning Star)
1 whole wheat tortilla
Salt and Pepper, to taste
cooking spray

What To Do:
In a small bowl, toss diced tomatoes, green onion, yellow onion, bell pepper and cilantro together.  Lightly spray a frying pan with cooking spray (I use olive oil cooking spray); heat over med-high heat.  Add egg whites, veggies and salt/pepper (to taste); scramble.  While the egg is cooking, heat the sausage links as directed on the package, cut in to small pieces and add to the egg whites. Once the egg is cooked (about 3-4 minutes) sprinkle soy cheese, turn off heat and mix until melted.  Wrap in warmed tortilla (I stuck mine in the microwave for 30 seconds).

* You can also use other egg substitutes in place of egg whites
*If you prefer some extra heat, add 1 tsp minced jalapeños
*I use Smart & Delicious Low-carb Tortillas (low calories and high fiber) and Morning Star Veggie Sausage Links
*The cheese I used can be found at Trader Joe's
*To reduce the overall sodium content, you can use low-sodium veggie links and less cheese
