Day 32, Breakfast Burritos

I had to use up the other pepper I had in the fridge and I always have eggs in the fridge. This is a budget friendly meal. You could even have fruit and yogurt with this if you want.

Breakfast Burritos

6 flour or whole wheat tortillas
1 sweet pepper, cut into slices
6 eggs
2 tbsp bacon pieces
6 slices American cheese
non-stick spray
1 tbsp butter

Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and heat to medium. Cook peppers for 4-6 minutes, flipping once for even cooking. Remove peppers to a bowl. In a medium bowl, beat eggs then add bacon pieces. Respray frying pan and add butter for flavor. Add eggs and scramble; to scramble, let sit in heated pan for a minute then gently fold until eggs are cooked through. Flip if necessary. Remove from heat. Heat tortillas according to directions on packaging, approximately 10-20 seconds in the microwave. Add 3-4 slices of peppers in center of tortilla; add egg mixture divided equally between tortillas; fold cheese in half and place on top of eggs. Fold tortillas into burritos; fold one side over, fold end over the first fold, then fold opposite side from first fold over to cover. If mixture becomes cool while putting the burritos together, place in the microwave for 5-10 seconds per burrito.

Serves 4-6

This is a good thing to make for heat and eat meals. They can be premade then frozen for quick breakfasts. You can make them with sausage instead of bacon. Onions can be added too, either slice them or dice them and cook with the peppers. Yogurt and fruit would be good sides to go with this meal. If only it wasn't so cold today, my apartment is having a hard time staying warm and the egg mixture went cold quickly.

Flavor Rating: Good, I forgot to make them with onions and I like onions.

Ease of Preparation: Easy, the peppers need to be watched because they can go from well done to burned quickly.
