The gift of hospitality sometimes comes with food.

Breakfast Burritos

I haven’t made these in a while, but a request popped up for an easy breakfast after-the-baby arrives. Amounts and kind in the contents vary according to what I have on hand.

  • 12 flour tortillas
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, seeded, cored and finely chopped
  • 6 potatoes, peeled, and chopped into 1/4 inch cubes (HINT: use a food processor, or buy frozen hashed browns!)
  • optional: chopped mushrooms, chopped tomato, browned sausage, cooked and crumbled bacon, cooked and chopped chicken or turkey, shredded cheese, chopped ham


  1. Fry eggs until done in a small amount of butter. Remove from pan into a large bowl.
  2. Fry the onion and green pepper and add to bowl.
  3. Fry potatoes in butter until they are soft but not mushy and nicely browned.
  4. Add everything else to the bowl (meat or cheese options) and mix.
  5. Warm tortillas in microwave (about 20 seconds) until they are very flexible and warm.
  6. Put about 1/2 cup of egg mixture on each tortilla. Fold up ends and roll burro style.
  7. Put burritos on a lightly greased cookie sheet, leaving space in between.
  8. When frozen, remove from sheet, wrap well and place in a freezer bag.

TO SERVE: Microwave about 2 minutes on HIGH (100% power) on a microwave-safe dish. Check, turn over and microwave for 30 seconds more at a time, checking to see if they are hot in the middle. (Use a food thermometer!) DO NOT overcook or they will be dry and inedible, except to Fido.
