Actually, they love breakfast...period.
Generally, cuz there is quite a bit of hustling trying to get out the door by 7am, it's every man for himself in the breakfast department. Don't worry, there's always plenty to eat, it just has to be fast and easy.
You know, like leftover pizza (which is a good one cuz I think all 5 food groups are represented), or cereal, or maybe that last piece of cake, (again, several food groups represented).
I love breakfast burritos, because I can whip up a dozen and they last
Here's how it goes...
- A dozen eggs. (from your hen house or the store)
- 1 lb. sausage (this came from the FFA Chapter, and we like the "hot")
- A dozen tortillas
- A half bag of Ore-Ida Potatoes O'Brien-it has the onion and peppers already in it...easy.
- One cup of shredded cheese-the more the better! We like Colby and Monterey Jack, but use whatever floats your boat.
Fry up the sausage and potatoes. I usually fry the sausage first, remove from pan, then fry the potatoes. May require adding a little oil before adding the potatoes.
After the potatoes are cooked through and slightly brown, add the sausage back in the pan.
Whisk up the eggs (with a little milk), and add to sausage and potato mixture.
Cook and stir. Cook and stir. Till eggs are good and done.
Grate the cheese, unless you are lucky enough to have bought the already shredded stuff.
Yes that is a paper plate. I have nothing to say except...remember, we are rednecks. And my dishwasher is full.
Just work with me here.
Add the glorious cheese to the meat and potato mixture. Note: the more cheese the better.
Stir until cheese is melted.
Then, roll, roll, roll, your boat. No, wait.
Then roll, roll, roll the burritos.
This is my least favorite part of the process, so, this is where Wranglers comes in.
He is better at it than me anyway.
And there you have it. One dozen breakfast burritos, which my guys will have eaten up in the next 24 hours.
Thanks for tuning in.
