Beat Boredom with Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  You see, I am a morning person, and I love the ease of preparing breakfast.  By dinner time, I’m spent, not ready to start another meal preparation if I don’t have to.

I recently received a phone inquiry asking,  “What can I serve for breakfast besides eggs and cereal?” That question was just the impetus I needed to explain the nutritional benefits of kicking the breakfast cereal habit, for good and assembling a breakfast recipe assortment of tried and true, quick and easy recipes .

Here are a few suggestions for breaking up the monotony of having the same thing every day and making it healthy too!

Here is my favorite Breakfast burrito filling.  Make it ahead, and just warm it up in the morning.

Breakfast Burritos
I make this in bulk and freeze the filling in meal sized portions.

1 medium potato – cooked (leftover baked potato works easily)
1 pound bulk breakfast sausage
1 small onon, chopped
1 tsp chili powder
dash cayenne

2-4 eggs, beaten
6 flour tortilla’s
1 cup Montery Jack  or Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Optional Garnishes:
Sour Cream
Chopped cilantro

Cube the potato when cooled enough.  Brown sausage in large fry pan with chopped onion.  When meat is browned and onion wilted, add chili powder and cayenne.  Cook 10 minutes over low heat, and covered stirring often to soften the onion.  Drain the fat.  Add potato.  Add beaten eggs,  Stir until eggs are set.  Spoon 1/3 cup portions or so into a warm tortilla, top with 1 1/2 TB shredded cheese, a teaspoon of salsa and sour c ream if desired and roll-up.  Serve with fruit or juice.
