Breakfast Burritos

Meg likes making a similar breakfast sandwich using flatbread.  We have some delicious homemade tomatillo salsa made from the tomatillos in our garden.  We decided to make a breakfast burrito, and I think she has a new favorite breakfast!

Ingredients:

1 flour tortilla

1 egg

1 sausage link

1 tomato, chopped

1 mini yellow or red pepper, chopped

splash of milk

tomatillo salsa

1/2 cup cheese of your choice

salt and pepper to taste

Cook the sausage in a small saute pan.

Break the egg into a small bowl, add milk, salt and pepper.

Whisk all together.

Pour the eggs into the saute pan heated to medium-high.

Add the chopped tomatoes and peppers and cook until done.

Soften the tortilla in the microwave for a few seconds.  Chop the sausage and place down the middle of the tortilla

Add the eggs, sprinkle grated cheese and top with tomatillo salsa.

Fold in the sides of the tortilla.

Then roll it up!

You can serve it with some sour cream and salsa on the side.

Frittata with Sausage, Artichoke and Pepper

Megan and I try to think-up “light” dinners on Wednesday nights when we have Zumba.  We made a frittata this week and had it with some butternut squash and apple soup.  It was delish!!!

Ingredients:

2 Italian sausages

1/2 cup roasted red pepper

1 can (14 ounce) whole artichokes packed in water

7 eggs

1 cup  Pecorino Romano Cheese, grated

1/4 teaspoon salt

pepper

Place about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a large non-stick saute pan.  Turn heat to medium-high.

Remove the casings from the sausage and crumble in the pan.  Saute until done.

Chop 1/2 cup roasted red pepper.

Drain the water off the artichokes.  Place on the cutting board and roughly chop.

Drain off any excess fat from the sausage, leaving a little so the eggs don’t stick.  Add the peppers and artichokes.

Crack the seven eggs into a blender, add the salt and pepper and mix.

Pour the eggs into the pan.

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese over the eggs.

Let the eggs set. Run a spatula around the edges.  Add the other 1/2 cup of cheese.

Place under the broiler for about 3 minutes, until the top becomes browned.

Remove from the oven.  Carefully slide the frittata onto a plate or serve in the skillet.

Enjoy!!!
