Breakfast burritos are not a stranger in my house, but I never thought to serve them up buffet style until I read it below. Take a look at what Maggie has for us….
When my husband and I were engaged, we visited Albuquerque New Mexico. It was a great trip, and we both have fond memories of the best breakfast we’ve ever eaten. It was a small diner in downtown Albuquerque, a couple of blocks from the Hilton. No idea what street it was on, or the name of the place. But, the breakfast burrito was to die for.
I’ve ordered them at other restaurants, and tried my own. No success. However, I decided to make some at home for my husband’s birthday this year. They were pretty good, but still missing the perfection that lives in our minds. Oh well!
This is an easy breakfast to make for guests, as you can set it all out on buffet and let everyone make their own concoction. Always a hit! I was serving 8, including 4 hearty eaters, so I made a lot. You may want to adjust your quantities for families with more normal appetites…
1 dozen eggs, scrambled
5 medium potatoes, boiled, cool, peel then dice
1 lb hot sausage, browned
2 cups shredded cheese
1 large tomato, diced
1 medium onion, diced

What you do:
Brown sausage in a large skillet, drain and reserve drippings. Return 1 T of drippings to pan and saute onions until they just begin to brown. Remove onions. Add 2-3 T of sausage drippings back to pan then add boiled potatoes until warmed through and beginning to brown.
Scramble eggs and heat tortillas.
Place all the ingredients above in serving dishes.
