Steak & Eggs vs. Breakfast Burritos
Our friend Mike is staying here. We like serving our guests a delicious breakfast on a Sunday morning. I didn’t have time to go to the store yesterday, so the fridge was mostly empty when we got up this a.m. We made coffee and started looking for breakfast ideas. We had 2 eggs, 2 steaks, 2 tortillas and some jack cheese in the fridge. Steak and eggs were out, since we only had 2 eggs & 3 people. But, we also had a couple potatoes, onions & red jalapeño in the crisper drawer, and tomatoes & parsley in the garden.
So we decided to make grilled steak & eggs breakfast burritos. We grilled the steaks, marinating them first with crushed garlic, salt & pepper. It was fun grilling steaks first thing in the morning, it sorta felt like camping.
We combined chopped potatoes with some shredded p‘taters from the freezer and 1 chopped onion in a skillet with olive oil and butter, and seasoned with salt and pepper.
Then we made a garnish of chopped tomato, jalapeño, green onion, garlic, and fresh chopped parsley.
Once the steaks are grilled, let them rest 10 minutes before you slice them. Cook the eggs any way you like. Lay a tortilla on a piece of buttered foil, add the sliced steak, eggs, potatoes, jalapeño jack cheese, & tomato salsa. Fold in the sides, roll it up, & cover the foil over it. Bake at 400 for a few minutes so the cheese gets melty. Slice the two burritos into two or three sections being careful not to explode it the way I did here. Yum!
