Last week, I was craving breakfast for dinner. I was also craving burritos. What better way to get everything at once than with a breakfast burrito?
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. The roasted green chiles were left from when I made Creamy, Cheesy Chip Dip (also frozen!). But whatever you want to use would be great.
Press the hash brown mixture to the bottom of the pan and leave it alone.
Spoon your egg and hash brown mixture into the center of the tortilla.
Be smart and use two hands to roll up the burritos. Fold in the sides, and then start folding the tortilla the other way, so the tucked-in sides are on the inside.
If you really like to plan ahead for the week, you could wrap these bad boys up in tinfoil and store them in the fridge. Pop them in the oven while you're getting ready in the morning and you've got a quick and hearty breakfast!
Recipe: Breakfast Burritos
3 slices bacon, cut into bite-sized pieces
4 sausage links, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 roasted red bell pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
2 whole roasted green chiles, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. diced ham
1 bag preshredded hash browns
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
6 large eggs
splash of half and half or milk
1 tbsp. minced fresh chives (or 1 tsp. dried)
salt and pepper, to taste
tortillas, warmed slightly to prevent cracking
1 c. shredded cheese
In a large pan, brown bacon and sausage over medium heat. When they have rendered their fat and are beginning to brown, add peppers, onions, chiles, and garlic. Saute until softened. Add ham.
Add hash browns to pan; stir everything together. Drizzle with vegetable oil. Press potatoes down gently into the bottom of the pan and let cook until browned. Flip hash browns and allow to brown on the other side.
In a small bowl, combine eggs, half and half, chives, and salt and pepper. Whisk to break eggs.
Gently pour eggs over hash brown mixture; lower heat if necessary. Gently stir until eggs are fully cooked. Pull off heat.
Cover tortillas with a moist paper towel and heat in microwave for 10-15 seconds until warmed. Spoon egg-and-hash brown mixture into center of tortilla. Top mixture with sour cream, salsa, and shredded cheese. Roll tortilla into a burrito shape. Serve!
