Jabberwock’s Breakfast Burritos March 23, 2013

breakfast4burrito600x402.

Not low carb, but not for me !  Every few weeks I make breakfast burritos which makes school mornings MUCH easier.  My 12 year old can just pop these straight from the freezer into the microwave, slice up an apple and have a pretty darned good breakfast that will tide her over to lunchtime at school.

Jabberwock’s Breakfast Burritos

1 lb. chicken sausage
18 eggs, scrambled
1 package frozen O’Brien potatoes
Cheddar cheese, grated
Medium tortilla shells

Cook the sausage, remove to large bowl.  Cook the eggs, remove to bowl.  Brown the potatoes until outsides are nice and crispy, remove to bowl. Mix well. Taste the mixture and add salt/pepper if needed.

Layout tortilla shells.  I used a cookie dough scooper, and placed two level scoops of the egg mixture on each tortilla. Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese ontop of the egg mixture, and roll up into burritos.

Individually wrap each burrito in plastic wrap, and pop into the freezer.  When a quick and easy breakfast is needed heat in microwave on high for 1-2 minutes.  For crusty outside, you can spray some oil into a non-stick pan and brown up the outside a little on med-high heat if desired.

.

Ingredients:  Asparagus, eggs, ricotta cheese, green onions, bacon (I used beef bacon)

Embellishments: 1 medium onion sauteed and added to bottom of the baking dish.

Prep: Recipe called for boiling the asparagus, but I went ahead and roasted them. Prep time was probably about 10 minutes (cooking the bacon, roasting asparagus, sauteeing the onion).

Cook time: 35 minutes

Comments:  I loved this dish — It tasted great, easy prep, and quick for an after work meal.  However, I have mentioned before that the family really doesn’t enjoy the “eggs for dinner” concept, so although they said it tasted ok, they really didn’t enjoy it.

.

I’m overriding the family on this one and giving it a thumbs up.  It was quite tasty, quick, and easy.

Bacon and Egg Casserole

I thought this was pretty good, however my family is just not thrilled with the quiche for dinner concept yet.  Looking like they better get used to it since emeals seems to have one egg based dinner dish each week!  The side dish was just spinach salad, which just doesn’t cut it for my better half from a “filling up” perspective.

I had a butternut squash leftover from my husband’s summer garden,  so peeled, diced, and roasted with some garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil for an additional side.

Substitutions and alterations….You know I always do this !  We generally don’t eat bacon, so I substituted beef, in place of the pork bacon.  The recipe also called for 1/4 cup of onion, and I used the entire thing since I hate stinky leftover onion smell in the fridge.

Prep:  Nice and Easy !  Thumbs up from me….Thumbs down from the Family….
