Broccoli & Bacon Breakfast BurritoIt’s the weekend!!!

Breakfast makes me happy!  Discovering leftover steamed broccoli in the fridge inspires me…  This morning it shall be Broccoli & Bacon Breakfast Burrito.  Super simple and by adding a few fresh herbs and seasonings….super delicious! Of course bacon never hurt flavor either.  After browning the bacon in a medium skillet and pouring off the drippings I sauteed onion slices until tender, then added a handful of steamed broccoli florets, fresh lemony thyme, a pinch of Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning, and a little salt & pepper.

Broccoli & Bacon Breakfast BurritoBy this time I was no longer the only one awake….oh the power of bacon.  Sprinkled the broccoli onion mixture with grated cheese and crumbled bacon, then poured in two  lightly beaten eggs and a little cream.  Cooked gently until the bottom was set.  I actually removed the skillet from the heat and covered the pan for a couple minutes.  I find this allows the center to cook without scorching the bottom.  Once set, flipped the mixture and returned to the heat for 1-2 more minutes.  Slid onto a large flour tortilla.  Sprinkled with snipped chives and grated Parmesan cheese.  Rolled up burrito style, found a breakfast buddy, and got happy.  Did I mention it’s the weekend?!!
