Breakfast Buritos.....for Dinner?

It's Christmas Eve, and we are not a family strong on traditions.  Don't get me wrong, we do have a few, but a very few.  In the early years of our marriage we spent Christmas with my family. After we had a couple of kids we broke the trend and started spending Christmas at home and traveled for Thanksgiving.  Perhaps because we did not start out at home we did not start traditions, or perhaps it is because I am just not one to hold to traditions.  Whatever the reason is I did not plan a fancy Christmas Eve Dinner, and because we had some shopping to do and I created this fabulous blog today I made Breakfast Buritos for dinner.  So since the purpose of this blog is to share my recipies, here is what I made tonight:
  Sausage, Potato, Egg and Cheese Buritos
(how's that for a title)

Brown 1 lb. Pork Sausage in large Skillet.  Do not drain. Add 1 full package of ....
These worked great since they already had onion and peppers in them.  Cook them in the pork grease with the sausage.  I cooked mine until they were defrosted and soft and hot, but not crisp.  Wisk together about 7 eggs and stir into the skillet with the meat and potatoes.  Keep mixing and the eggs will cook.  I did not add any salt or pepper since the pork and potatoes had so much flavor in them already.  Once the eggs are cooked turn off the heat and sprinkle 2 C. grated Colby Jack cheese on top.  I suppose you could use cheddar, or pepper jack, but I used what I had.  Cover the skillet with a lid and let the cheese melt.  It will look like this......
Scoop the mixture into flour tortillas and roll this....

Wrap in foil.  This is an important step even if you are eating them right away like we did.  The foil around the burito softens the whole thing and the heat inside helps to "glue" that burito together.  It really does make a difference.
You should get about 2-3 dozen depending on how full you fill your tortilla.

What do you think about this recipe?  Let me know if you try it!
