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.
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).
Well, I have mixed reviews on this one! I made a batch of these for our office & froze them overnight. I don't think they were too frozen by the time I nuked them at work the next morning. Everyone loved them. However, when we had the remainders over the weekend, they were difficult to unwrap after nuking, plus the tortillas were hard. I would suggest making the night before and refrigerating ONLY. They are good, though!
Was worried how these would turn out after freezing and then re-heating, however, that is a non-issue. These are great and easy to grab on the way out the door. Be sure to follow the directions given on cooking the hash browns and try mixing up with your favorite breakfast ingrediants as I did. Trying to keep up with ahealthy lifestyle I used turkey sausage; fat free shredded cheddar; egg beaters; Healthychoice deli ham chopped; fat free tortillas and Pam (as well as onions, etc). Came out great. Made about 15 burritos 2 weeks ago. With two in our house we are down to 3 left. I'll be making another batch soon!
These are great! I replaced the bacon with sausage and I made the equivalent amount of potatoes O'Brien from potatoes, onions and green pepper, and I made the equivalent amount called for in the recipe. I think I'd like more potato, though. I wasn't able to mix everything together in the same pan. In fact, I had to do the eggs in several batches. I put the eggs in one bowl, mixed the sausage and potatoes in another and went from there. YUM! Made around 17 burritos total.
This is a great idea. My husband and I are constantly grabbing breakfast on the run. We decided that we were spending way to much money on eating out and this was the perfect solution. We can still eat on the run without it costing an arm and a leg. I used about 28oz. of o'brien potatoes, a whole lb. of bacon and added 2 cans of rotel instead of the green chilies and salsa. The recipe made approx. 2 dozen VERY large burritos. One is just the perfect size for us. When I figured up the price per burrito, it was only .60 each. A lot better and cheaper than fast food!! Thank you for the money saving idea!!!
