Breakfast Burritos: Be Adventurous

Homemade Breakfast Burritos | Brittany's PantryIf you have ever had these beauties at a restaurant but never made them yourself, don’t be intimidated!  I am pretty sure there are only two real requirements and those are tortillas and eggs.  After that anything goes.

Years ago I had my first breakfast burrito at a Sonic, and I have never been the same since.  They put tator tots in it!  Well, not exactly tator tots, but whatever kind of fried potato round that they serve there.  And I thought, ‘Man!  This is brilliant!”  I haven’t had one at Sonic since, but I make my own all the time; infinitely healthier, easier, cheaper, and in my opinion, tastier.  I make these for breakfast (it never hurts to state the obvious), lunch, and dinner.  Especially in the summer when we are outside playing until the very end of the day and I don’t want to come in and heat up the kitchen by using the oven, or take a lot of time to put together supper for the family.  And hey!  Perfect for picky eaters!  Each one is made to order!Homemade Breakfast Burritos | Brittany's PantryHomemade Breakfast Burritos | Brittany's Pantry Breakfast Burritos
Remember.  This is not rocket science.  Just build what you like.  This is how we usually make them.

Tortillas, white or wheat
Scrambled Eggs
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Cream Cheese
Tator Tots
Sometimes Spinach
Hot Sauce, optional

Cook the tator tots according to package directions.  Through experience we have discovered that it works well if you start by spreading some cream cheese on the tortilla first.  Then sprinkle with cheese.  Add your sausage and chives (we just snip them over the eggs with a scissors) to your eggs just before they are set and ti will all hold together a bit better.  Dump the egg mixture onto the cheese and top with tator tots.  Top with hot sauce, if desired.  Wrap and enjoy!
