My family has turned into all MALES! EEeeek! Yes that means I am now out numbered until my daughter or step-daughters come for their visits. I have a three year old going on 14 year old son, a 18 year old son who is a senior in high school and my love, my soulmate Daddy Dave. My oldest daughter is 20 and she is away in college back in Maine. My three step-daughters also live out of state.
Males ~ 3
Females~ JUST ME!
So.... The men they EAT! They eat A LOT! They want a big hearty breakfast every morning, me I just want coffee and some yogurt or some fruit.
I have come up with a few breakfast make-a-heads that the boys love! They are perfect to make one day and keep in your freezer for easy micro-waving in the morning!
The ones I want to share with you today are Breakfast Burritos!
You will love these because they are so simple and easy to tweak to your family's taste buds.
You will need:Eggs, Potatoes, Onions, Sausage, flour tortillas, shredded cheese salt, pepper, and ketchup.
First wash and diced your potatoes and fry them in a skillet just as you would home fries or hash browns. I added some diced onions with mine and some salt and pepper.
Fry up the sausage, scramble the eggs, and warm your tortillas.
In a big pan or bowl mix together the scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, and cooked sausage.
I used venison sausage that was given to me, and fresh eggs my neighbor also gave me. I bought two packs of 10 flour tortillas and warmed them inside a folded up kitchen towel in the microwave. Be careful not to overheat them, you just want them warm.
Once the tortillas are warm take one out of the kitchen towel and place a couple spoonfuls of your egg mixture down the middle of the tortilla.
Then I placed a a couple of tablespoons of shredded cheese and a squirt of ketchup down the middle. (Mix it up here ad salsa, country sausage gravy or something else if you don't like ketchup.)
Pinch in the ends on both sides of the tortilla so that it is touching the strip if mixture in the middle of the tortilla. (OMG! My hands look OLD! oh uh hem my mom's hands are shown here...hehe Yeah that sounds better lol)
Then fold over one side of the tortilla to cover the mixture and roll to close. Your burrito is done! You can eat it here if you like.
Or what I did was wrap them each individually in wax paper. Then I stuck them back into the package that the tortillas came in because they have a zip close top like a baggie. I stuck a sticker on the baggie that says breakfast burritos with a date on it. Not that they will go bad, every time I make these they last only about a week. (I think they like them! hehe)
Once you take them out of the freezer you just need to microwave them for two minutes in the wax paper, unroll and eat. Your microwave heating times may vary.
Like I said you can adjust this recipe to make it your own or just change it up for fun. Add bacon, or ham and swiss cheese, make it lunch by adding taco meat and beans and cheese. The possibilities are endless. What would you put in it?
