the best part of wakin' up...is breakfast burritos in your fridge!
Lately I've had a hankering for terrible breakfast foods such as breakfast burritos...bacon, egg, cheese, salsa. Yum! However, this is a very unhealthy way to start the day. I decided to try and make a more nutritious, less fat-laden version. And it turned out to be quite easy to do. For the "sausage"part, I cooked up some ground turkey with onions, garlic, green pepper, cumin, Mexican oregano and red chili powder. then cooked up some shredded potatoes in the same pan, with just some salt and pepper. To assemble the burrito, I laid out a whole wheat tortilla, put a little of potatoes, topped by the turkey, sprinkled a little bit of 2% milk shredded cheese, then topped it all with some scramble egg whites.
Add salsa, wrap it all up with the tortilla, and you have a satisfying and good-for-you hot breakfast. And best of all, unlike the greasy gooey fatty breakfast burritos available at your nearest gas station or fast food joint, these won't sit in your tummy like a brick, making you want to go right back to bed. These are actually like fuel to start your day. So, while I was at it, I went ahead and assembled a bunch more and wrapped each one up in foil. A whole stack of breakfasts ready to-go in my fridge! Yay!
