Breakfast Burritos With Sausage Gravy

Breakfast Burritos With Sausage Gravy

My idea of the start to a perfect morning is coffee in hand and listening to the news to catch up on the latest goings-ons in the world. That is my nourishment. A little bit of caffeine and I am good. To. Go. Not so much Joe. Nope. That man needs a good, well-rounded breakfast to get his day started. And by well-rounded, I mean something to the likes of a three course meal (or even four sometimes). Eggs, meat, potatoes with onion, toast and tea. That is the perfect start to his day. If I ate like that, this girl would be napping every day and getting not so much done around here. And napping, that is just one thing I can NOT do! My brain never stops turning, except maybe if I had a “well-rounded breakfast”. Then maybe I could. This breakfast recipe is true genius in the fact that most of it can be prepped the night before if need be and just reheated/assembled in the morning, or you can assemble them the night before (wrap in plastic wrap and store in refrigerator), heat in microwave for about 1 minute the morning of and off you go about your busy day! Without the gravy of course. Joe likes it both ways. It tastes every bit as good on day two…maybe even a titch better. I have been promising him for three weeks I would get this on the blog because his friends-from-afar have been anticipating its arrival on the world-wide web, as he has been raving about this recipe. I HAVE in fact eaten this…for lunch…so I am here to tell you it is just scrumptious. And filling. And not low-calorie/fat. And that is perfectly fine. Life is too short to not eat good food and drink good wine…my motto. You can eat this plain, or with a great big huge ladle of our Sausage Gravy blanketing it. I gotta say, with the gravy, well let’s just say there are no words for the little parcels of creamy, meaty, cheesy culinary joy your palate will be graced with. Whew! And I’ll just go right on ahead and leave that there for you to ponder…

Slainte!

Ingredients
  • 8 medium Eggs, beaten
  • 1 pound spicy breakfast sausage
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1 15.5 ounce can Hominy*
  • 1 red pepper

  • 2 cups Shredded Colby/Jack Cheese

Instructions
  1. In medium bowl whisk eggs until beaten. Set aside.
  2. In large sauté pan cook sausage until no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes. Drain and set aside in small bowl. Do not rinse pan.
  3. To pan melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add onion and hominy, sauté until onions are translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add red and green peppers and cook another 5-7 minutes.
  4. Return sausage back to pan, add beaten eggs and cook 5-7 minutes, until eggs are set.
  5. Warm burrito shells in microwave for about 10-15 seconds. Lay flat and fill each shell with about 1 cup of filling, top with desired amount of cheese and fold left and right sides of shell to middle of filling, then roll into burrito.
  6. Top with sausage gravy, or leave plain. Serve warm. Garnish with parsley if serving with gravy.
Recipe Notes

*hominy is actually corn, but is very similar to cubed potatoes and can be found in most grocery stores in the vegetable aisle (see Amazon link above). Potatoes can be substituted.
