So I came up with these breakfast burritos for him - and what do you know, he's not ever hungry anymore! He loves them, and they're an easy way for me to show him I love him AND help our budget!! Dave is an "acts of service" on the love language scale and so taking the time to make these for him fills his love tank right up!!
There's tons of versatility with these - change the meat, change the veggies, change the tortillas, but this is how I've been creating them as we're trying to be more health conscious. I've been making up a batch once a week to last him the whole week long and he's loving them!!
|Tortillas, ground turkey, eggs, onion, bell peppers,tomatoes, spinach, potatoes, cheese, seasonings.|
Start by browning up 1-lb of ground turkey with half a chopped onion.
Drain the excess fat and set aside.
Crack six eggs in a bowl.
And some baby spinach I roughly chopped.
Throw your veggies in with your egg mix and stir together.
In a skillet melt some butter.
And add your eggs & veggies. Stir often until eggs are cooked through.
Just like this!
Now starts the assembly line. I cut squares of wax paper for my tortillas, then take a tortilla...
Add some meat & potatoes...
A good spoonful of eggs.
A sprinkling of cheese.
And then roll that monster burrito up!
Then starting in the corner, roll the burrito up in the wax paper.
Continue until all your mixture is gone! I made six big stuffed burritos in this batch with plenty of leftover meat to bag up for next time, or use in a different dish. Then I just bagged them up and stuck them in the refrigerator! I've found that one egg per burrito works pretty good in planning!
Give them a try, I'd love to hear the different filling ingredients you come up with!!
