By now we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but sometimes it’s hard to make a decent meal in the midst of rushing to get ready for the day. You’re gulping down coffee while you’re brushing your hair, picking out an outfit, letting the dog out one last time before you head out the door… and suddenly picking up a scone at Starbucks seems like the easiest way to get some food in your stomach before a long day. Don’t do it!
The time you’ll spend waiting in line for a baked good will just about equal the amount of time it would take you to create a hearty breakfast that would keep you satisfied for hours.
This is a simple recipe I came up with to use in the morning before early classes and it is nothing but delicious. My breakfast burritos take about ten minutes to make and are one of my favorite meals to start the day with.
Ingredients: (Makes 3)
1/2 tube Jimmy Dean Sausage
A sprinkle of Salt and Pepper
Splash of milk
Splash of salsa
Shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese
3 taco size tortillas
Step One: Place sausage in a lightly oiled pan over high heat. Break up with a spatula.
Step Two: While the sausage cooks, beat eggs with milk, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl.
Step Three: Mix up the sausage making sure that all sides are browning. Once it has cooked through, pour egg mixture into pan and lower heat to med-low. Stir constantly until eggs are cooked but still moist. Turn off heat.
Step Four: Add salsa and cheese. Stir until incorporated.
Step Five: Scoop into a warmed tortilla, enjoy with sour cream, and smile, because your day’s already off to a great start!
BONUS: If you do your grocery shopping at Fred Meyer’s you’ve probably heard the super annoying Tortilla Land jingle a thousand times. I know I have and I made a mental note to never try their tortillas because of it. However, when I found out their tortillas were raw and had to be crisped in a pan before eaten I was intrigued, so I ignored that mental note one day and… it turns out they’re probably the best tortillas I’ve ever had in my life.
Fresh, light, crisp, delicious. Try them if you get a chance!
