Simple Egg Burritos

When I was growing up, this was one of my mom's favorite breakfast food to make for us.  They were also called "egg burritos" and not "wraps".  She would make a lot of them, freeze them and we were able to enjoy them the rest of the week for breakfast.  Hubby enjoys having them to eat during the week too.  I first posted this back in April 2011.  

Simple because yes, they're very easy to make
Simple because that's what they are - simple, nothing fancy but yet so tasty

5 bacon strips, cooked and chopped into bits
5 sausage links, cooked and sliced into small bits
1 medium size yellow onion, chopped
5 eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream or whole milk
2 tbsps. butter
1 cup of shredded cheese
20 fajita size flour tortillas
Salt and pepper

In a large plate or medium size bowl, cut cooked bacon and sausage into small pieces and combine.  Set aside.

In the same pan where you fried your bacon and sausage (I used my 12" skillet), add a tbsp. of butter if needed, saute and brown the onion.

 Turn the heat down to medium low, add the bacon and sausage bits, stir and combine.

In a medium bowl, scramble the eggs along with the cream.  Salt and pepper.  Melt another tbsp. of butter to frying pan and meats then pour in the egg mixture.  I like to let mine set for about 15 seconds then gently move around to mix but if you like to scramble non-stop then go ahead - there's no wrong way here.

Once the eggs and meat are combined to your liking, turn the heat off.  Sprinkle on the cheese, cover to let the cheese melt and set aside.

Wrap the stack of flour tortillas in two paper towel sheets.  Heat in microwave between 20-30 seconds.  Do NOT overheat.

Remove tortillas from microwave oven and place a spoonful of the egg mixture onto each tortilla towards one side.

Fold over and keep rolling.  As you noticed, I did not fold up the ends first and THAT'S OKAY.  I'm folding them over the way my mom did.

Place burritos seam side down.  Serve with your favorite sauce, in my case guess which one's mine? ;)

Plain and simple egg burritos only because I really didn't have anything else to add.  You can add just about anything you like, such as green onions, mushrooms, red & green peppers, the possibilities are endless.

Furthermore, what's so wonderful about these that if you have any leftover, you can always freeze them..

Simply wrap each one individually in plastic wrap and store in your freezer.  When you're ready to eat one, pop it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds more or less and enjoy!!  I like the idea of having leftovers because my hubby gets to enjoy them anytime he wants.
