My husband HATES leftovers. So, I usually devise new ways to incorporate leftovers into new dishes. He will never realize he is eating leftovers, if I call it something totally different. Saturday morning, I realized I had several odds and ends in the fridge, so I concocted a breakfast burrito to get rid of these few little items.
Breakfast burrito ingredients
This aioli by Stonewall Kitchen is so light and a great addition to anything containing bacon. Since I had a few slices of bacon leftover and this was going to be a “breakfast” dish, I decided to use the aioli as a sauce, at the base of each burrito. The aioli added a sweet, syrupy flavor (not texture) to the tortilla. However, I think next time, I will try cream cheese as the base.
You will also need the following:
- Tortilla soft taco shells
- 1 shallot
- Leftover bacon
- Shredded cheese
- Hash brown frozen potatoes
- Butter for scrambling eggs
Breakfast Burrito Directions
Set oven to 200º. Wrap left over soft tortilla shells completely in aluminum foil and place in oven till ready to use.
