A bunch of Breakfast Burritos

Saturday mornings are soccer game day. We all go out to cheer Morgy May on, and hope that she will last for at least part of the game before having a meltdown and leaving to sit on mama's lap. But with a bunch of 4 year old's it really is anything goes out there and the valiant "coaches" take it all in stride. Anyway, if anything is worth getting up early and standing outside in a damp field and freezing for, it is watching the "grasshoppers" and "munchkins" run around trying to kick a soccer ball. They are just too cute! And then breakfast burritos help too.

These are a good make ahead breakfast and can be pretty handy any day of the week for a quick grab and go handheld meal.

Breakfast Burritos Recipe:

1 lb bulk breakfast sausage
4 medium potatoes, diced
1 dozen eggs
1 lb grated cheddar or colby jack cheese
1 jar salsa
salt and pepper, dash of cayenne pepper
1 dozen flour tortillas

Boil diced potatoes for about 5 minutes, drain well.
Cook sausage in large skillet until lightly browned, do not drain. Add the par-cooked potatoes to the skillet, season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Cook over medium heat to brown the potatoes, stirring occasionally. Remove to large mixing bowl.

Scramble the eggs and cook in the same skillet until just set. Do not overcook, they will continue to cook after adding to the meat and potato mixture! Stir together with meat and potatoes in mixing bowl.

Place a tortilla on a square of wax paper or foil that is slightly larger than the tortilla. Put about two serving spoons of meat and egg mixture in center of tortilla, leaving plenty of space all around for rolling. Sprinkle with cheese and a spoonful of salsa. Fold ends in toward middle then roll up the burrito. Fold wax paper ends toward center then roll. Place in a plastic zip lock in the frig and they can be microwaved for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes before serving.

For soccer games I wrap in foil and heat as many as we need on a cookie sheet in the oven in the morning,take the to the game in a small cooler to hand out as needed.
