Breakfast Burritos

I love Mexican food.  I really really do.  What's not to love???  The cheese, the gucamole, the enchalada sauce, the cilantro, the tortilla chips....  Today I had a craving for some burritos.  But it was 8:00 in the morning and I was snowed in.  So I did what any good mexican food lover does and made some breakfast burritos.  They were just what I was craving.  I didn't have a recipe I followed, but I will try my best to remember the measurements.  I used what I had on hand and this is what I came up with, but you can add what ever floats your boat to these.  Sausage would be great, and so would taco seasoning added to the egg mixture.  Guacamole would be outsatnding.  You get the picture.....

Breakfast Burritos

Home Fries (click to go to recipe)

1/2 pound bacon

6 eggs

1/4 cup milk

8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese ( I love cheese)

A few sprigs of Cilantro, rough chopped

salsa or taco sauce

6 (10 inch) flour tortillas

Salt and pepper to taste

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and set aside.
Make the home fries and leave in skillet, take skillet off heat.
Crack the eggs in a medium size bowl, add the milk, salt and pepper.  Whisk the egg mixture lightly.
Chop the cooled bacon into bite sized pieces.
Return the skillet with the homefries to the burner.  On medium low add the bacon pieces and pour the egg mixture over it all.  Lightly stir the whole thing until the eggs are cooked through.  Be gentle stiring as you don't want the potatoes to break apart and become mush. 
To assemble the burritos, warm a tortilla shell in the microwave for 15 seconds.  Place a heaping spoonful of the egg mixture on to the warm shell.  Add a small hand full of shredded cheese, the salsa or taco sauce and the chopped cilantro.  Fold the shell over and roll until closed.
