Breakfast Burritos for Dinner

Just for the record, I wrote this way before Christmas, when our bacon lovin’ vegetarian granddaughter was visiting and I was stumped as to what to make for her! So, no, I haven’t given up on my healthy New Year’s goals!
This breakfast burrito isn’t a “recipe,” but it is a good idea if you want dinner on the table in minutes. It’s great for breakfast, too, of course. I’m pretty sure no one has much energy for making dinner this week — especially if the kids are still out of school!
Heat the oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet (with rim!) with a ton of foil. Lay bacon on foil, touching but not overlapping.
Check after 15 minutes, then re-check every 5. You may find that some strips will be done earlier than others. Remove these to paper towels and return the rest to the oven until they’re all as crispy as you like them.
Heat a skillet on medium.
Place a flour tortilla on a plate, and cover with shredded Mexican cheese. Microwave no longer than 45 seconds. Repeat with rest of tortillas.
When the bacon is done, remove to paper towels. Scramble your eggs.
Lay bacon down the center of the melted cheese on the tortillas, then spoon scramble eggs down the center.
Wrap up and enjoy. When bacon fat has cooled, you can wrap up the foil and toss it. Or keep it in a mason jar in the fridge, for grilled cheese sandwiches later on. Sinful but delicious.
Here is a photo of my bacon fat in its foil. No clean up!
You’re very welcome.
Enjoy! Now go get a hot bath and relax for a bit.
Happy New Year!
