Few can deny the love of a hearty breakfast burrito in the morning, but it’s one of our favorite staple quick and easy dinner meals, so it’s hardly ever eaten in the AM at the Duke Home.  We almost always have all of the ingredients, and everyone in the family loves eggs, and it’s great protein, too! You can go meatless if you’d like, but we love ground sausage in ours.

Today, I’m part of a Family Dinner blog hop, which I love because this is something I’m constantly thinking about!

For this meal, I almost always have everything on hand, and we seem to have a variation of this dinner once a week. When we do, there are literally cheers from my kids!

For the basic version, all you need is:

 

  • eggs
  • ground sausage
  • tortillas

We’ve got salsa, cheese, avocados, and peppers generally around, too, and those serve as toppings.

For the tortillas, I’ve discovered a new secret that was life changing. I used to pick up tortillas each week at the store. We actually have a fresh tortilla making machine at our local grocery store, those are amazing because they are fresh, but are best on day one and kinda gross on day three. I discovered recently that I can buy fresh tortilla dough already rolled out and in a package. I just heat them up on a pan (1 minute each) and they last in the fridge for a good month. Here is what they look like:

Here is a fun picture of the peppers we cook with the eggs (half of my kids like them, the other half pick them out)

Great thing about this meal, is I throw everything into ONE PAN, so clean up is easy! First, I brown the ground sausage, then I add 2 eggs per person, along with chopped peppers.

      I agree, who can whip up a fancy breakfast??? I try to go beyond cereal every once in a while, but simplicity is key for breakfast, but this one is pretty quick, too.
