Make ahead Breakfast Burritos

Keeping some of these easy Make ahead Breakfast Burritos on hand will make your mornings extra enjoyable. I love knowing that I only have one mess to clean up from breakfast, for the ENTIRE week! And the mess is really not that bad. Usually, it consists of 1 electric skillet, a cutting board, a bowl, and of course, a few utensils. See, easy peasy, not even enough to fully load the dishwasher ūüėČ Paper plates also help to keep the mess minimal.

Now, I know I said these are Make ahead Breakfast Burritos, and they are, but my mom also had another great idea. She suggested that if I had overnight company I could make these up the night before, place them seam-side down in a greased cake pan, and bake them in the morning. I’m not sure what temperature these would have to¬†cook at because I have never tried it. If you googled it I am sure you would find something on it. Gotta love google, right!?

* I saw many different methods of wrapping and freezing the burritos but I liked the one I used int this recipe the best. I can not find the website where I saw this, I might even have seen it on youtube. But I want all my readers to know that the recipe is my own but the freezer method is not. If I happen to come across it again I will be sure to link it. If you choose to make these burritos for yourself do some research on the different freezer methods, you may find something you like better. For example, I saw some people wrap them in foil. This would be a nice method if you chose not to use microwaves, you could probably take them straight out of the freezer and bake them in the oven with the foil still on. =)


Buffalo Egg Salad

 

Buffalo Egg Salad

A while back my good friend Prudy, from Butter Basil and Breadcrumbs, posted a recipe for buffalo deviled eggs. After looking at her recipe, I am now a firm believer in LOVE at first sight. These deviled eggs look DIVINE; I can’t wait to try them! ¬†If you have yet to visit her blog, it is a must. She has so many amazing recipes that are sure to make you drool. (she is currently having technical difficulties with her site, but I will be sure to link the recipe as soon as she has it up and running)

 

Now let’s talk about my recipe, shall we?

I knew I wanted to make Prudy’s Buffalo deviled eggs, but I was having a lazy day. I didn’t feel like halving the eggs and scooping out the middles. Then, ¬†if I made it that far, ¬†I would have to whip out the old pastry bag to fill them up so they looked pretty. So I decided to recreate her recipe by turning it into an egg salad. Quick, easy, and delicious.

Also, if you are trying to go low-carb, but the family is not quite on board, then this is the perfect meal to make. You can roll yours in a lettuce leaf while still serving theirs on a biscuit. That’s what I call a win, win!

I hope you enjoy my¬†version of Prudy’s Buffalo Deviled eggs. P.S. I’ll be trying her recipe soon, and very soon!

Buffalo Egg Salad 

Ingredients: 

6-7 Hard boiled eggs (shell off and rinsed)

1/2 pound of bacon ( fried and crumbled)

1/4 Cup Mayo

2- 3 Tbsp. Buffalo Sauce (depending how hot you like it)

1/2 stalk of celery (diced)

Blue Cheese (optional, I used goat cheese because, I do not care for blue cheese)

Salt and Pepper to taste ( hold on the salt until you put the bacon in, as the bacon will add salt.)

Biscuits and/or Lettuce leaves to serve the egg salad on.

 

Directions: 

Finely dice hard boiled eggs and toss into a small bowl. Add mayo, buffalo sauce, celery, most of the bacon ( If you want you can add all of the bacon. I like to save some for the top of my sandwich.), salt & pepper. Mix well with a wooden spoon. Scoop on  biscuits or in a lettuce leaf and sprinkle with some blue cheese, or in my case goat cheese.

Breakfast Burger

 

The other night I asked my  husband what he wanted for supper, he said something with beef, easy enough, right? So I looked in the freezer and saw  a pack of frozen hamburger patties and some frozen hash browns and this is what I came up with.

He told me this was the best burger he ever ate. Easy to make + budget friendly = a win for me! ūüôā

** Next time I make this I will add bacon!

Ingredients:

2 frozen hamburg patties

2 slices of cheddar cheese

3 pieces of bread ( I used Italian)

2 cups frozen hash browns (seems like a  lot but they shrink when they cook)

butter for toasting the bread

vegetable oil for the bottom of the pan

1 egg

spicy sauce ( recipe below)

Directions: 

It is easiest to use 2 frying pans for this, once has to be a cast iron skillet so it can go in the oven later. In a cast iron skillet over medium high heat and a little vegetable oil ¬†start your burgers because they will take the longest to cook. In a second frying pan over medium high heat and a little vegetable oil start frying hash browns, fry them until them until they are browned and add some salt and pepper to them. Next take hash browns out of pan and set aside. Using same pan that hash browns were in begin to toast the bread. take 2 pieces of bread and butter and toast both sides until golden brown. With the third piece of bread butter both sides but only toast one side. The un-toasted side will be the bottom of your burger and will get toasted when burger is assembled. ¬†By this time burgers should be done. Add 1 piece of cheese to each burger and once it melts it is time to assemble your burger. Turn ¬†burner with burgers (which will be the cast iron skillet) off and turn oven to 350 degrees while assembling burger. Lay the the piece of bread that was only toasted on one side down first, un-toasted side down. Spread spicy sauce on toasted part. Then lay 1/3 of hash browns down, 1 burger, piece of toasted bread, spread spicy sauce on bread, 1/3 hash browns,another hamburger, 1/3 hash browns. Turn oven off and turn broiler on high.¬†Now ¬†its time for the tricky part…the egg! Turn oven off and turn broiler on high. There should be enough grease in the skillet for the egg, if not you can add a little butter so it doesn’t stick. ¬†Put the assembled sandwich on one side of the skillet and crack an egg on the other side. Cook egg until it is firm enough on the bottom to lift up with a spatula and place on the burger ( this usually takes about 1 minute on my stove). Make sure to salt and pepper your ¬†egg. Using spatula carefully place egg on top of the burger. ¬†Now take the entire skillet and place in the oven under the broiler. This also takes about 1 minute. Just leave under enough for the egg to get firm but not so long the yolk cooks and you have no dippy. Take sandwich out of oven and top with the last piece of bread. Enjoy!

This spicy sauce that I use is a recipe that I got from a former co-worker.

Spicy Sauce:

3 Tbsp. Mayo

1/2 tsp. ketchup

Tabasco sauce (as much or as little as you like)

Mix everything together, it should be slightly pink in color.
