Tacos Al Pastor Pork was on sale, so we thought we’d make tacos. Not just tacos, but my favourite kind of tacos – Al Pastor. I love pineapple on anything and everything. I was going to just cook the meat in a slow cooker. Ethan […]

As a child, I hated breakfast for dinner. As an adult, I have completely embraced it. Sorry mom!
We had exactly two large tortillas left that we wanted to use up, and I thought that breakfast burritos would be the way to go.
These are super easy and quick. You can also customize them any way you want, if you’d prefer to use more veggies, or a different kind of meat.
Just a really solid Breakfast Burrito
- 6 slices of bacon
- 10 oz sausage
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 small onion
- 2 cups hashbrowns
- 2 tortillas
- just as much grated cheese as you want
- 1/3 cup milk
- hot sauce
- sour cream
- Cook the bacon first to your desired crispness. Save the grease in the pan
- Separately, cook the the sausage, onions and hash browns in the pan in the reserved bacon grease
- In a small bowl, whisk two eggs, half the milk and a bit of cheese. Spray a hot pan with your choice of cooking spray, the pour in the egg mixture. Cook until top doesn’t jiggle. Remove from pan.
- Do it all again with the other two eggs, the rest of the milk, and some more cheese.
- Assemble the burrito by first sprinkling a little cheese on the warmed tortilla. Then laying down the egg, topping with the meat, hash browns, onions, and more cheese. Top with hot sauce and sour cream if desired.
- Roll it!
I loved these burritos. Cooking everything in the bacon grease adds a really wonderful layer of flavour. This is the perfect dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
In my world, soup season is never over. Just because the temperatures are getting warmer, it doesn’t mean I’m putting my ladles away. This carrot coconut soup is a great, filling lunch soup. It’s based off of this Soup Sisters recipe, making adjustments for ingredients […]
There are many benefits to living in Canada. Unfortunately, there isn’t any locations of the much-hyped grocery store, Trader Joe’s, here in the great white north. But I am a Canadian in a border town. There is a Trader Joe’s location not TOO far from […]
I love a good party mix. How could you not with the delicious combination of salty goodness. The only thing I don’t like in the mix is pretzels. I always take them out. It’s not that I am vehemently against pretzels. I just don’t want them in the party mix. But I don’t like to waste them, so that’s where these repurposed pretzels come into play.
I wanted an easy way to use up these pretzels, and thought that chocolateifying them is a great way to go.
Repurposed Chocolately Pretzels
- As many pretzels as you want
- A couple handfuls of chocolate wafers
- Lay out pretzels on parchment paper over a baking sheet
- Boil a pot of water, put a heat-safe bowl over top of your bot when boiled
- Add your chocolate wafers to the bowl, stir until melted
- Drizzle melted chocolate over pretzels
- Add sprinkles quickly before the chocolate dries
- Put in the fridge or store in a cool place until hardened
This is an incredibly easy recipe that is great for parties, to bring to the office, or a snack. I’m trying to do better with not wasting food and I think this is a creative solution to use up my least favourite part of one of my favourite snacks.
The Canadian National Exhibition, more affectionately known as “The Ex” is akin to State Fairs in the USA. There’s wild food, carnival games, rides I mostly refuse to go on, and so much more. It takes place over the last few weeks of the summer […]
