Breakfast Burrito…for Mom on Mother’s Day ~ May 10, 2015

Breakfast Burrito

Eggs are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Eggs also make great snacks and appetizers.

Who thought of putting eggs in a Burrito?

Well, it may not be a new concept, but it was a new experience for me. You see, I am somewhat traditional when it comes to how I like to enjoy my eggs. So, putting eggs in a burrito sounded like a weird idea. I gave it a try, and loved it!
Now, I’m considering different ways to enjoy eggs. Stay tuned for future recipe posts using the incredible, edible egg!

The Incredible Egg

Ok, let’s make this Breakfast Burrito.

First things first. I start by brewing coffee…taking sips of coffee while cooking breakfast.
Remember, this is a loose reciipe. You can add more or less of the ingredients.
Make it your own…
