Hot Breakfast Challenge: Breakfast Burritos

The Happy Housewife has organized a Hot Breakfast Challenge... which I think is brilliant. I am working on developing (and sticking to) weekly menu plans and thought incorporating the Breakfast Challenge would be really helpful. So, my first run was with Breakfast Burritos.

Breakfast Burritos

  • 1 lb. Ground Turkey
  • 6 Egg Whites
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Diced Onion
  • 1 Tb. Taco Seasoning
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 dozen Tortilla Shells; 8-10 inches.
  1. Brown turkey; drain any excess oil and set aside. Saute bell pepper and onions until soft. Add eggs and scramble. Add spices and cheese; stir until cheese is melted.
  2. Scoop about 1/3 cup filling into the middle of a tortilla shell - fold shell in half. Fold in/over each side, then roll up. Wrap securely in aluminium foil. Repeat for remaining shells and filling. Freeze.

  3. To reheat: Remove from foil. Wrap in paper towel or a napkin and microwave for 1 minute; or until warm throughout.

Pretty little packages!

Breakfast burritos are the best!! On particularly lazy Saturdays, my boyfriend and I will add in some chopped up potatoes... baking a couple hashbrowns and squishing them in there works too! Sounds weird, but it's really good!

Saw your blog on foreverwherever-- you've got some great recipes!!
