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…..
Coupons for 2 dozen Egglands Best Eggs
A coupon for 1 dozen Hard Cooked and Peeled Eggs
 4 ramekins, an apron, whisk, spatula, egg timer and eco bag. 
Not too shabby, eh?
To enter the giveaway 
leave me a comment telling me your kids favorite school morning breakfast.  Might it be…..
Cold Cereal
Glass of OJ
Scrambled eggs,
Eggs over easy…
Pop Tart of Wonder…
Leave me a lone I don’t do breakfast…
Three Chocolate Chip Cookies, please?
There are no wrong answers.

You may enter until Thursday night at midnight. 
Winner will be announced on Friday morning.

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

***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.

    My son's favorite breakfast – he is now 26 and in the Navy, coming home on leave next week – is a breakfast burrito containing scrambled eggs, bacon and salsa, baked on a pizza stone till it's nice and crispy.

    Crepes, pancakes, puffed pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage…anything that's not cold cereal which is the usual breakfast menu.

    I'm usually gone by the time the kids are up for school, so breakfast has tobe something easy that dad can do. Usually cold cereal, waffles, cereal bars, Pop-Tarts, hard boiled eggs and toast with peanut butter are staples around here. I try to help the kids get out their breakfast food the night before, although that doesn't always work.
    I found a small basket on clearance at Walmart and have started “packing” their breakfast in there so they can “grab-n-go” if there isn't time for toast or waffles.

    Cereal is usually the breakfast of choice around here. But those breakfast burritos sound really yummy.

    Sounds yummy!! My kids aren't much for breakfast, but I do try and make them eat something before heading out the door. It's usually just cold cereal and milk. Hopefully your recipes will get them away from cereal. =)

    My kids LOVE the sausage (or bacon),egg and cheese biscuits. I make everything from scratch, assemble them, and store them in the freezer. It's easy for them and ME in the morning. They put them in the microwave unwrapped for 30 sec. then in the toaster oven for 5 min. I love easy!

    biscuits and gravy are the favorite here…but only on sundays when dad's in charge. otherwise, it's toast, cold cereal, or a carnation instant breakfast.

    We love cereal. Since everyone can choose a different kind, cereal is the best! I have one child who loves pancakes but not eggs and the other is the opposite. So, cereal is the best choice.

    My son's favorite breakfast is anything that is not cold cereal. My husband makes breakfast much better than I so he is usually all over it! 🙂

    My boys eat lots of different things for breakfast. I try to change it up but they like “flat” eggs with “runny yellow stuff.” As well as “round” eggs. They also loved your chocolate waffles and ask for them all the time.

    Eggos or toast.

    My kids often request popsicles, but mean mom won't let them. Dad on the other hand??? My kids actually love french toast and bacon.

    My oldest always has cold cereal (but would prefer pancakes), and my youngest always has a banana, a piece of toast, and a cup of milk (but would prefer cheese, as that is the only food she REALLY likes).

    People that don't live in the south (and some who do) will think this is gross, but livermush and scrambled eggs on sandwich bread is the bomb! My whole family loves this.

    OOPS!…just realized I forgot to include my email in my comment (comment #7–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.)
    so I'm including it here..hope that's okay 🙂

    French toast and a smoothie would be my kids' current favorite, although they like lots of breakfast foods! -Cathy-

    My little girl, at 13 months old, isn't in school and hasn't discovered the joys of favorites. 🙂 She does love instant oatmeal with fruit, yogurt, and any fruit she can get her hands on. My hubby and I love breakfast foods, though. My favorite would probably be Swedish Pancakes or breakfast casseroles with eggs, potatoes, meat. Yum!

    My grandchildren LOVE cheesy egg burritos, they're made at least 3x week, & if I have leftovers I freeze them (they love them anyway).

    I asked my four kids and got a couple of answers. Puffed pancakes by a couple and eggs with bread in the pan from the others. We love breakfast around here and have it for dinner too! Your blog is great by the way:)

    Are you kidding… 15yo DD “I'm getting ready I don't have time for breakfast. Leave me alone.” Great giveaway and this is a recipe that would be easy to fix on Sunday and reheat each morning. Then she could eat it on her way to school. Great recipe and thanks for the chance to win!

    Variety Pancakes. Plain batter and then we add what everyone likes in separate bowls. I like mine blueberry or cherry, dad goes for chocolate chip and the kiddos like it when I write messages on them with edible markers and serve with homemade strawberry syrup and whip cream.

    My sons favorite breakfast would be pancakes. Or breakfast puffs, but I don't make those on school days. My daughter just started kindergarten this week and is blowing me away because she doesn't want to eat breakfast…she always wants to eat breakfast. She loves breakfast burritos, oatmeal, and cereal. We're going to try to start doing more smoothies (any recipes for those would be appreciated!).

    A lot of the time it's just cold cereal but when time permits they love either pancakes or french toast.

    Each of us is different. Two like pancakes, two prefer cold cereal, and one will eat everything and anything and requests something different every day!

    My son would eat cold cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I let him! His other favorite is german pancakes. Thanks!
