Breakfast Burritos

I really love the breakfast burritos some fast food restaurants make but don't like paying the price. I often shop really early on Saturday mornings and a couple weeks ago when I was done shopping I was going to go to the closest fast food joint and buy a couple when it occured to me that I had everything I needed in the grocery bags in the back seat. So here it is.

For each burrito you will need:

1 taco size whole wheat tortilla

1 egg

You can use 1 or 2 slices of cheese or grated cheese

Meat (optional);
2 deli sliced pieces of ham ot turkey or
1 or 2 sausage links or patties chopped up or
2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled or
Chopped cooked ham, turkey or chicken

Small amount of chopped onions and peppers are a must, use whatever peppers your taste buds can handle
Optional veggies, pick one or two(or more if your cooking for several people) :
(just use a small amount for each burrito)
Broccoli (this is really good, try it)
Grated carrots
Grated potato
Cubed cooked potatoes
Any leftover veggies from dinner

Put the deli sliced meat (if that's what your using) and cheese on tortilla, put in microwave for about 20 to 30 seconds. If you have help, have them do this while your cooking the filling.

Saute the onions, peppers and any other uncooked veggies, add the sausage if thats what your using, saute until onions are transparent and sausage is cooked through. Add other meats, cooked veggies and heat through. Beat the eggs thouroughly and add to mixture. Cook like scrambled eggs. Put desired amount on each burrito, roll up and enjoy.
