Hey there my lovely Casa lovers!!!. I’m bringing you a post to help with our busy lives!!!.
I’m certain that when it comes to the kitchen, prepping in advance is key to saving time this way you can use the spare time by being with your loved ones and not in the kitchen. Sunday is my kitchen busiest day because I make tons of food ahead of time for the week.
In this post I want to share with you how to make a breakfast burrito from scratch. Breakfast was always the one meal I really did not have time to cook for myself and I would simply buy something and that was it. But a while ago I found that I was wasting money and eating stuff that were not really good for me. I hope you guys make this recipe and again, I hope it makes your hectic life a bit easier.
3 to 4 tortillas, mid size to make a small burrito
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (use Pepper Jack and Swiss if you want, do it yourself, don’t buy the pre-shredded kind!)
3 fully cooked sausage links diced (not shown below)
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
1/2 cup of diced onions
1/2 cup of a bell pepper diced, (color of your choice, you can even use them all in this recipe if you want)
Salt and pepper to taste
Tip: adding a bit of jalapeño gives this dish a great kick.
Add a bit of the butter in a preheated pan without letting the butter dissolve completely, add the sausage links. Cook them on medium heat for about 2 minutes or so and then add the peppers and the onions. Season this mixture with a bit of salt and pepper. Once the sausage changes color either you can take it out and cook the egg alone or like I did, just add the egg to the mixture. If you decide to do the egg alone, make sure you wipe the pan and then add butter and then the eggs.
Assembling the burritos
First put the tortilla, then the mixture and last the cheese
Then proceed to roll the burrito into the tortilla
Fold the sides into the middle
Last step and is the most important one!. WAIT until the burritos are COMPLETELY cooled before putting them in the freezer. You never want to put food in the freezer that is not cool. If you do, once the food starts to freeze, the sweat from the food will turn into ice crystals and you really don’t want that.
Defrost: Put in the refrigerator the burrito you are taking on the go the night before. Cut in in half and give it 50 seconds or less in the microwave and there is your homemade breakfast!
I hope you enjoyed this post, love you all!!
