Hearty Breakfast Burritos and a Giveaway

Hearty Breakfast Burritos and a Giveaway
  • Pinterest

Hello and how the heck are ya?
Doing well, I hope!
This morning dawns the beginning 
of a new school year for my two oldest kids.
My poor middle daughter Emily has been back to school 
for five weeks now.
Oh the blessing of year round school. 
Not really fair is it?
The dear girl has reminded me no less than 
7 bazillion 
times how unfair it is 
that she is
“……the ONLY one who has school, Mom. 
My life is full of despair, it’s just not FAIR!  
All the rest of you people are just home eating bon bons
and playing and having fun…
sob, sob, 
sniffle 
sniflle….
boo hoo. 
waaaaaaaaahhhhhhh.” 
Can you really blame her? 
Life can be hard when you are 9 years old. 
 
And so, for this full figured mother of five 
having all three of my big kids back in school this morning 
is a calm and quiet blessing. 
Though I will miss them, let it be known for the record.
Since school is back in session…
And being that I have a sneaking suspicion 
 at least some of you have kids….
I’ve got some great SchoolMorningBreakfast
recipes for you this week.
 
These Hearty Breakfast Burritos are first on the list. 
Quick, filling, healthy….
a perfect way to help your kids through their day.
Eggs can do that for you, ya know. 
We eat a lot of them around here.
I am also pleased to announce that I have partnered with 
Egglands Best Eggs and had the opportunity this past week to host a
Egglands Best Plate Date. 
What is that, you might be thinking?
Just a fun little back to school breakfast party I had with a few friends and thier kids, sponsored by Egglands Best Eggs. 
I made these Breakfast Burritos along with another great recipe I’ll be sharing with you later on in the week.

Now….let’s make some breakfast. 
Hearty Breakfast Burritos
Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 8 servings
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!
2 dozen eggs
splash of milk
salt and pepper
1  32 ounce bag Southern Potatoes
5 T butter
salt and pepper
8-10 large burrito style tortillas
Toppings:
diced ham
bacon
cheese
salsa
sour cream
BBQ sauce
ketchup
maple syrup
 
***NOTE: To make these Hearty Breakfast Burritos come together even quicker you can omit the potatoes. End of note.***
1. Crack your eggs and put them in a large mixing bowl. Add the splash of milk and a little salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs up until they are nice and frothy. 
2. Heat up a large skillet over medium high heat. Spray it with cooking spray and pour your eggs right in. 
3. Scrape the bottom of your pan until the eggs are cooked through. 
4. While your eggs are cooking heat up another skillet and add the butter. Pour your hash browns in and cook them until they are golden brown. 
5. Heat your tortillas in the microwave, or wrap them in tin foil and let them heat through in a warm oven. 
6. Set out the tortillas, potatoes, eggs…..

some yummy toppings and let your family build a little bit of breakfast wonder.

Thanks so much for dropping by, today. 
Have a good one….
here’s to a new school year!

    Lately, it's a slice of wheat bread spread with Nutella. Yep, we've jumped on that bandwagon this year! canewton42@yahoo.com

      Hi there anonymous,
      I haven't ever tried to freeze these. My thoughst are, they would need to be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and then put in a gallon sized freezer safe ziploc bag. Let me know if you try it and how they turn out.
      Good luck!

    She won’t eat breakfast unless it’s at 12 pm. She used to be a pancake girl.
