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.
By 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?!!
