Survival Saturday – Breakfast Burritos


For all the Why’s and Wherefore’s of Survival Saturday, please visit the Intro Post. Thanks!


Today we decided to drop off the “Survival” aspect of this food post.  We wanted some comfort food that we knew we both liked, was easy to prepare, was warm and was filling. Breakfast Burritos fit this bill perfectly. Mrs B introduced these wonders to me soon after we were married and it was one of things we bonded over.


Items Needed:

1 bag Potatoes Obrien



1 dozen Eggs



8 Flour Tortillas (We’ve tried corn but it just doesn’t taste as good)



Shredded Cheese (lots and lots!)



Bacon (or, as in our case, Vege-Bacon)





1) Cook the potatoes obrien per instructions. We pretty much just put butter in a big fry pan and cooked them over medium heat until they were at an acceptable level of “cooked”. Basically, they weren’t cold and hard. They really looked more like mashed potatoes by that point, but since we were going to mash them into a burrito, they didn’t need to look like golden hash browns.  Put the potatoes in a container and scramble the eggs in same fry pan. The seasoning from the potatoes will help season the eggs as well.



2) Next, put shredded cheese and several strips of vege-bacon on a tortilla and microwave for 1 minute. This melts the cheese and “cooks” the bacon.



3) Put your desired amount of scrambled egg and potatoes on the burrito.



4) Wrap the burrito so it completely surrounds everything


Matching His & Her Burritos. Goes with every outfit you may have!


5) Enjoy!  Remember, a true gentleman uses manners, so keep that pinkie up!





Thoroughly enjoyed these. We each ate one for brunch then made 6 more and put them in the fridge for eating throughout the week. Mrs B recommends microwaving them for a minute when pulling them out of the fridge as leftovers.  It is now approximately 6hrs later and I’m still full from the one I ate earlier. They’re filling!

      While it is not survival food, it is wicked easy to make. And if you’re on your own and don’t want leftovers, just adjust how much of everything you get.
      You can do it! 😀

      Well, watch out for vegan “cheese”. That is some really rough stuff 🙂 That reminds me of a funny story about vegan mac-n-cheese that happened soon after Mrs B and I were married. I’ll try to post it in the next week or two. You should get a kick out of it.

      I don’t know what brands of vege-meats are available to her, but they really vary. We stick pretty much to MorningStar as even I, who am not a vegetarian, like their stuff.

      Yep, definitely helps if you can spread the love. Mrs B tends to binge eat types of food, ie, a bunch of it for a week or two then not again for another 2 months.
      And it doesn’t hurt that during a busy work week for me I can consume 3K calories a day and burn it all off, well, these things were MADE for heavy days like that 🙂


  8. This might not be survival food, but the question is: can one survive it?
    😀 😀 😀
    It sounds so very *rich* that I can feel my arteries hardening just looking at the ingredients! 😀 😀

  15. Nooo! I shouldn’t have read that! I’m trying very hard to eat healthier at the moment and this is VERY tempting! Why do I love cheese so much? Why can I not really be into brussel sprouts and carrots?!

    Looks delicious! Even without the real bacon 😉

      Cheese is definitely my downfall. If you’re trying to be healthier, you can always use the low-fat/no-fat shredded mozzerella cheese. My old professor (who is now dead, sadly), who had diabetes like me, could only eat that stuff instead of any other kind of cheese. It was one of the things he complained about the most 😀
