I guess you'd call this OAMC......I've kind of modified it to suit my tastes, but you can put anything in these, or adjust the quanities. Soemtimes, I'll use ham, too

- Cook and drain the bacon and sausage.
- Crumble the bacon.
- Set aside.
- Leave a small amount of grease in the pan, and cook the potatoes.
- Be sure the potatoes are comepltely cooked, and properly browned--the texture is funny if you don't.

This should be renamed "Perfect Hang-over Breakfast"! Which is the whole reason I tried it to begin with;) I used 1lb. Bob Evans sausage, 1lb. shredded hashbrowns (cooked well done & crispy), can of chilies, 2 dozen eggs, and about 2 cups of cheese. This amount made 10 8" burritos (whole wheat for DH) and 14 6" smaller ones for me. I decide to skip the bacon and they are still yummy. Even scaled down, it makes quite a bit & it's a reward to our friends in the morning for not drinking and driving the previous nite! thanks for this great one! PS: we microwaved for about 1 min & that was plenty.
The amount of egg overwhelms all the other ingredients. To make it more proportionate you'd either need to increase the other amounts or decrease the egg. I like my breakfast burritos more hearty, so this recipe only yielded about have the given amount of servings.
New favorite breakfast grab-it-n-run treat! I'm not a breakfast person at all (unless cafe' au lait counts as food:):) but Husband needs his morning meal. I usually keep a quiche handy so he can microwave a slice---but after a while quiche got boring for him. The nice thing about these burritos is, you can make/freeze several varieties all at once, so it's not same-old-same-old every day. A favorite filling for him is what I call the "English breakfast" version, with sauteed mushrooms, chopped tomato, onions, and ham).Thumbs up, Lightly Toasted! (re: reviewers who found them to dry out in microwave---wrap in paper towel and sprinkle a bit of water on it. That should keep them nice and soft).
