In my original blog I just intermingled the recipes I mentioned in the blog. Many found this hard to follow. So in an effort to make the blogs more user friendly I am posting all the recipes and how to's for all the blogs here. I hope you like this new format. -Jan `

Serving Size  : 4     Preparation Time :0:10

Categories    : Breakfast Foods


  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method

--------  ------------  --------------------------------

  4              whole  flour tortillas

  8        tablespoons  butter

  6              whole  eggs -- beaten as if for scrambled eggs

  1                cup  cheese -- your choice of type, shredded

  1                cup  cooked meat -- your choice, we like sausage

                        picante sauce -- for garnish if desired

                        sour cream -- for garnish if desired

                        avocado -- for garnish if desired

                        chopped onion -- for garnish if desired


Make these one at a time.  For each burrito:


Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet that you have a lid to fit over a medium low heat.


Place tortilla flat in the skillet.  On top of the tortilla place 1/4 of the cooked meat, cheddar cheese and beaten egg.


Place a lid on the skilled (a pizza pan or cookie sheet will work if you don't have a lid that fits.  I prefer to use a glass lid so I can watch for browning of the tortilla, but it's not mandatory.


Cook on low heat until the tortilla is lightly browned and the egg is set.  Fold the tortilla over and remove to a plate.  Top with your garnishes if desired.
