New video! Watch me make these burritos in my own kitchen…
Busy Busy Busy. That is what I hear most of the time from friends, family and acquaintances. Busy with school, busy with work, busy with kids. Busy planning a wedding.. ahem.. I mean we are all guilty of using that ‘B’ word.
So, its no surprise that us busy folk don’t have time to eat breakfast before heading out the door in the morning. We tend to get hungry just before lunch; settling for something quick and, typically, unhealthy from a fast food joint or convenience store.
Or, we just skip breakfast altogether. Something I was guilty of for many years.
Giving our bodies fuel is so important in the morning. It’s that kick start our brain needs to function (along with coffee) and keeps our body energized for the first part of the day. To solve the “too busy for breakfast” woes I decided to create these breakfast burritos which are easy to make and quick to grab and go.
I like this breakfast burrito recipe for a number of reasons:
1.) You can use whatever filling you’d like. From vegetarian, to ground sausage or turkey…get as creative as you like.
2.) You can quickly microwave and enjoy before you race out the door, while driving (if needed) or take it with you and heat it up at the office or wherever you’re headed.
3.) You can prep as many as you’d like by doubling or tripling the recipe as they can last up to 2-3 months in the freezer. #winwin
Check it out below:
Crack eggs into a bowl with a pinch of salt and whisk until blended.
In a medium skillet, on medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and eggs. Scramble for about 4 minutes. Remove eggs from skillet and set to the side.
With the same skillet on medium high heat add sausage. Cook until fully done (about 5-8 minutes). Once cooked, remove sausage from skillet and set to the side.
Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil into the same skillet and add red pepper, onion and potatoes. Sauté until onions are translucent and potatoes have a slight crisp. Remove from pan and set to the side.
Place egg, sausage, potato mixture and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese to one side of the tortilla. Gently roll once over and then tuck in the sides before completing the roll. Wrap in saran wrap and continue with the remaining tortillas until you have no more toppings. Place in a freezer bag and store for up to 1 to 2 months.
Remove from freezer and remove saran wrap. Place on a plate or paper towel then microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Serve with your favorite salsa.
