While summer is not over, it is certainly winding down. For me at least, the Local Food & Farm Celebration farm crawl that we co-hosted along with Rolling Acres Farm & Harrisdale Farmstead, felt like a culmination of the season. With that event being over and calves being weaned this week, we have had a little more time for ourselves and are starting to transfer some of our energy to other things that are important to us. Like relaxing, spending time with family, and preserving food for winter.
Currently, we have 7 quarts of green beans in the pantry and roughly 10 quarts of broccoli in the freezer. This weekend, I hope to get rolling on applesauce and I can’t wait to try out my Christmas present (outdoor wood cook stove – more on that another day) while making tomato sauce. Another thing we did this past week was re-stock NP’s supply of breakfast burritos – I think the poor guy has had to forage for breakfast for at least a month! And I mean that with all sincerity. Meals have been lacking around here this month – not because we don’t have food (we have piles of it!) but because I have been lacking in imagination (and time) which results in not very appetizing meals. We have had A LOT of hot dogs, hamburgers and lunch meat sandwiches served with things like a can of beans or the 6lbs of potato salad that we’ve eaten for every meal for a whole week … But things are turning around. I know this because as I am writing this it is noon and I am already daydreaming about what we will have for supper!
But, without further ado, make-ahead breakfast burritos are what this post is all about! Keep in mind that this is how we make them but the recipe can easily be adapted to fit your likes and preferences. That’s the great thing about cooking at home!! You can make whatever you want, any way that you want, with just the right amount of the ingredients that you like while leaving out the ones you don’t, aaaand you can cook it exactly how much of it you want, when you want it!
The best part about it? You can personalize your burritos any way you want! Don’t like hot sauce? Use salsa! Too many potatoes? Try substituting beans instead. Don’t like eggs? Use a bit more sausage and add some sautéed onions & green peppers. The possibilities are endless!
