Breakfast Burritos.

When I was down in Austin, TX for work last month I popped into Royal Blue Grocery for a quick bite in the morning, and tried a breakfast burrito for the very first time in my life. What was I thinking? Thirty years on this earth before I tasted a breakfast burrito! I managed to eat a new flavor combination every morning for the rest of my trip, and when I got back I was determined to recreate them at home. One of the best versions I ate had chopped up potatoes inside so I decided to take this concept to the next level: I used steamed tortillas to roll-up scrambled eggs, melted sharp cheddar cheese, chopped up fresh scallions, and some red-bliss mashed potatoes with lots of salt and pepper. Oh-em-gee are these tasty, and such a good way to use up leftover potatoes from dinner the night before. If you’re feeling really crazy try adding some chorizo too!

    Yum! I went to school in Austin (hook ’em!) and definitely miss breakfast burritos/breakfast tacos. Annas is pretty good, but nothing compares to the real deal. Black beans are my required ingredient, but potatoes are a close second!

    Ha, it’s always so funny to see other people trying breakfast tacos/burritos for the first time since they’re practically a food group around Texas! So glad you enjoyed them and yours look awesome too!
