Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

I made these for dinner because as a few of you may know...I'm not much of a breakfast eater. It's just....eh...okay. So when I make anything breakfasty around here...it's usually for dinner. IT Guy doesn't mind...especially if there's leftovers. Like there were of this. This recipe made 8 GOOD sized burritos...enough for dinner and a few for lunch for the guys for the next day. Yay for double-duty dinners. Or breakfasts. Or lunches. Whatever. 

Spicy Breakfast Burritos

8 large burrito size flour tortillas
3 cups cheese - I used a combo of cheddar/jack and pepper jack
5 eggs mixed with about 1/2 cup of half & half
1 pound breakfast sausage - regular or spicy
Tator Tots - I used about a half of package...maybe 50 tots, cooked according to package directions

Bake the tots and set aside.

Grate the cheeses and set aside.

In a large skillet, brown the sausage. When it's done, pour in the egg mixture and cook together until the eggs are done.

Warm a tortilla in the microwave for about 15 seconds.

Starting with the tots, layer the ingredients. Roll up the burrito and place in a baking dish or wrap in foil.

Place in 300 degree oven for about 20 minutes until warmed through.....then serve.

These can be made up a day or so in advance then rewarmed in the oven.

Here's what you need. Plus you'll need a 
little half & half...not pictured. D'oh!!

Oh...here it is in this picture mixed in with the eggs! 
Along with a little salt and pepper.

As you're cooking the tots in the oven, brown the sausage. 
Then pour in the egg mixture.

Cook until the eggs are scrambled and mixed in with the sausage.

Layer all the goodies into a warm flour tortilla.

Keep them in a warm oven until you're ready to serve!
