Breakfast Burritos

Hello there :) I've got something super yummy to share with you all tonight, breakfast burritos! When I was thinking of things to make earlier, I thought I had a great line up of ingredients that would make some killer breakfast burritos..and I set out to make them! My husband has always thought that he didn't like breakfast burritos, and to be honest, I'm not very familiar with them myself..it's not something I ever choose to get anywhere. We were both excited to see what I could come up with though. The result was delicious, so much better than either of us thought they would be! I thought the egg would ruin it for me since I'm not a huge fan of eggs, but all of the ingredients blended and worked with one another perfectly. These would be a great time saver for busy mornings, just make them, freeze them, then reheat them! I hope you give these a try!! PS ~ You could totally use the frozen blend of pre-diced potatoes, onions & green peppers to save time!
6 Slices of Bacon
2 Medium Size Russet Potatoes, diced
1/2 Cup Onion, diced
1/2 Cup Green Pepper, diced
4 Eggs
1 Heaping Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
10 Flour Tortillas
2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Dice your bacon and cook in a fry pan over medium high heat until cooked, remove and drain on a paper towel; set aside. You can either cook the vegetables in some of the bacon fat, or remove that from the pan and add your vegetable oil, I cleaned my pan out and used vegetable oil. Add your diced (they should be fairly small dices) potatoes to the pan and season with salt & pepper and let cook on medium high heat for about 10 minutes, then add your onions and green peppers and cool until potatoes are tender and cooked through. Remove your vegetables to a bowl and set aside. Whisk your eggs up and scramble them in the fry pan that you just removed the vegetables from, using the excess oil leftover in the pan to prevent them from sticking. Once your eggs are done, turn off the heat and add the vegetables, bacon and cheese. Stir until everything is evenly combined. *Note if you don't want your cheese to completely melt, then let your mixture in the fry pan cool off slightly before you add your cheese so that way when you add it it's to where the cheese just gets warm. Place mixture down the middle of warmed tortillas (I placed mine in my tortilla warmer in the microwave for about 25 seconds) and then roll up. Serve with salsa, if desired.
