Hearty Breakfast Burritos and a Giveaway

Hearty Breakfast Burritos and a Giveaway
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, 
boo hoo. 
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. 
Egglands Best Eggs would like to give a few goodies away to one of you lucky readers. 
The winner will receive…..

A coupon for 1 dozen Hard Cooked and Peeled Eggs
 4 ramekins, an apron, whisk, spatula, egg timer and eco bag.

splash of milk
salt and pepper
1  32 ounce bag Southern Potatoes
5 T butter

2. Heat up a large skillet over medium high heat. Spray it with cooking spray and pour your eggs right in.

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.

    My kid's love homemade muffins and yogurt (Tillamook or Kroger are the best). The other favorite is cream of wheat with a little dab of butter and some sugar added. YUM!

    School days had to be quick and easy-usually cereal(hot or cold, depending on the season) or hard boiled egg and toast.

    My kids love breakfast burritos and breakfast pizza. However,on school days my son's favorite is french toast and sausage. 🙂 I make quite a bit of french toast and store the leftover in the freezer or refrigerator then we just pop it in the toaster on busy mornings. I also make up the sausage patties ahead of time and just rewarm them in the microwave.

    I have 7 children so in my family they all usually like different things!!! However I would say the 2 major ones are in their words dip-able eggs. AKA Sunny side up and waffles .

    Our favorite is oatmeal with yogurt. I found this idea in a magazine for valentines. Cook your oatmeal. Place an open heart shaped cookie cutter in the bottom of a flat bottomed bowl. Spoon strawberry or raspberry yogurt into cookie cutter and spoon oatmeal around sides. Then remove cookie cutter. How cute a breakfast with a love theme. Now we just quickly dollop a spoonful of our favorite yogurt on top of the cooked oatmeal. ilm3bs@on-digital.com

    The favorite at our house is anything cinnamon. We seem to have a fixation with it. We eat cinnamon breakfast cake, cinnamon french toast and homemade cinnamon rolls. We serve scrambled eggs with these choices of course!

    My kids don't like to sit for breakfast – so it's usually anything that can be eaten on the go: go-gurt, toast, frozen waffles (sans syrup), nutri-grain bars – you get the picture.

    On weekends we love to take family trips to Einstein's for family bagels.

    My girls like pancakes for breakfast. I freeze a big batch of their favorite, then just pop them in the toaster for a quick home made breakfast. kat2122@lycos.com

    If I can get them to eat before school, it is usually cold cereal or granola bar on the go.

    The most requested breakfast in our family is
    German Pancakes, or some call them popovers.
    They are fantastic with toppings of fruit!

    My favorite breakfast is Tuesday morning when the children go to Grandpa's for breakfast. He cooks to order Crepes, Mickey Mouse waffles, or French Toast. They love it too, because otherwise it is cold cereal!

    My son goes back to school tomorrow…sigh…
    His favorite breakfast is vanilla yogurt with blueberries sprinkled on top and a rice cake with peanut butter on it…and a glass of milk.

    Most days it is cold cereal but I do like to make mini muffins and freeze them. Easy to take out and warm up!

    Cereal is always nice and handy. But, my kids have always loved the breakfast casserole I do in my crockpot with scrambles eggs, hash browns, sausage, bacon and LOTS of Cheddar cheese. There are a lot of variatons that can be done with the recipe..It's great on Christmas and Easter morning…specially when there is a lot of sweet candy around. Oh, and it's great with salsa and sour cream. Gosh, it's making me hungry!–~Michelle

    We are leaving tomorrow morning to take my daughter to university and I am feeling a little nostalgic, so I'll share a breakfast with you that she used to love. I'd put leftover hash browns in a coffee mug, crack an egg on top, salt and pepper, then shred a little cheese over the egg. Put a cover on the cup (I just use a small plate inverted) and microwave 3 to 5 minutes until the egg is cooked to your liking. She could grab the cup and eat it on the way to school if I drove her. I live in Canada so I probable don't qualify for your contest, but my email is tkwegs@shaw.ca.

    My kids mostly eat cold cereal because I don't want to cook breakfast every day. I do try to have french toast or pancakes or waffles on the other days, sometimes I make sausage egg cheese muffins.

    August 29, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    My kids love yogurt parfaits!! We cut fresh strawberries and place on bottom of tupperware container…add small container of vanilla yogurt…top with blueberres. We make several at a time and place in fridge for a yummy, quick & easy breakfast!

    I love pancakes but my kids would rather just have cold cereal. So my thought is why in world do I want to put more work into something they don't really want when morning is crazy enough anyways? I at least try to buy the cold cereals that have at least 3grams of fiber in them so I feel like it is doing something good for them.
