Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos and a Giveaway!

It’s been a while since I’ve had a giveaway on here. When I got an email from Jane Doiron asking if I’d like to giveaway a copy of her new cookbook, I thought it sounded like a great idea. Her book is called Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms and is available on Amazon. I have to admit, I’m not a mom but I’ll definitely be getting some great usage out of this book (Jane sent me a copy on top of the one I’m giving away).


Since Hubby and I both work full time jobs, any way that I can save time on feeding us will definitely help out. We often get home from a long day at work and neither of us want to cook. While the cookbook doesn’t have any photos, it does have a lot of recipes that look like they’ll come together quickly and really help anyone who’s busy and who wants to put homemade meals on the table every night.


I wanted to try a recipe in the cookbook prior to posting this giveaway. I decided to go with the breakfast burritos. They were very easy to assemble and tasted awesome. The other great thing is that you could customize this recipe to suite your preferences or what you have in the house. I used some chicken sausage because that’s what I had on hand. I had enough filling for 7 burritos. Hubby and I are enjoying these burritos for breakfast. It’s a nice change of pace from the standard banana.


Some rules:
– The prize will only be shipped to US mailing addresses.

– One lucky winner will be chosen at random

Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos

Yield: 6

Ingredients:

1 lb lean breakfast turkey or chicken sausages
1 Tbsp butter

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Remove the casings from the sausages and place in skillet. Brown the meat using a spatula. When fully cooked, remove sausage to a bowl and set aside.

Remove grease from pan with paper towel and return to heat. Melt the butter in the pan. Scramble the eggs in a bowl and pout into skillet. Stir frequently to cook.

Remove skillet from heat and add sausage and cheese. Stir until well combined.

Place 1 cup of the egg filling on each tortilla and roll up like a burrito. Places each burrito seam side down on a cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to cook. Once cooled, wrap each burrito in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag. Freeze up to 1 month.

To reheat, remove burrito from its packaging. Wrap loosely in a paper towel and microwave on high until heated through, 1-3 minutes.

    Caramelized onions. I would always snarl at them until I actually tried them and realized they are delicious!

    Try the true Mexican way: with shredded, crispy cabbage, it’s so good.
    I tried something I thought I wouldn’t like (that’s a very small percentage of the foods in the world!) and I was right, I totally disliked it – and that’s octopus!

    Brussel sprouts. I split them in half, and saute them with olive oil, butter, and garlic. They’re my new favorite vegetable, and my wife and I make them once a week.

    On a fish taco note, I had always wanted to try them, finally did, and they were terrible. Turns out I tried them at a bad Mexican restaurant, even though the place was always packed. It was sort of a tourist trap, and eventually went out of business. I’d never thought to try them home, that sounds like a great idea.

    Oh boy fish tacos… when I first heard of them I thought the concept was a terrible idea. I finally let my husband convince me to try them and I of course loved them. Like Nancy said, we eat them the Mexican/Baja way with cabbage. So good!

    Now have you tried shrimp tacos?!

    roasted corn seasoned, mashed and mixed with diced red bell pepper, topped with cheddar, apricotjam and mixed greens, on wheat

    The use of sprouts in your tacos is a great idea! I’m going to have to try that!

    I was skeptical of fish tacos until I tried them. Now they are probably one of my top 5 foods. I love mine with cabbage, lime, and pico de gallo

    Jen, I too was a fish taco “snob” Couldn’t imagine whoever would think to do such a thing. You actually opened my mind up to trying them. I made salmon with taco seasoning ones and we really loved them, thanks to you. I told a friend whose husband goes to Alaska fishing and always brings home lots of salmon and halibut. They are coming over tonight and guess what we are having? SALMON TACOS!! Thanks.
