Breakfast Burrito Pitas

Should any of these survive until the next day, they can be warmed up in the microwave for immediate consumption.

Breakfast-Burrito-Pita

Breakfast burritos with fried potatoes in them are the best.  And they’re really good with sage breakfast sausage in them too.

And of course the normal cast of breakfast burrito characters like scrambled eggs, refried beans, cheese and salsa are a must.

You know that when all of these ingredients taste delicious on their own, they’re really going to be scrumptious when combined.  To change things up a bit while still staying with the idea of finger food, these breakfast burrito ingredients are served in pita pocket bread.

And the fried potatoes are every bit as delicious.  Here are some more recipes with fried potatoes in them “Fried Potato, Ham and Spinach Breakfast Pie“, “Cheesy Jalapeno and Bacon Skillet Potatoes” and “Potato, Egg and Cheese Scramble“.

These breakfast burrito pitas can be made a day ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator so all you have to do is warm them up right before serving.

They’re great for a breakfast on-the-go too.  Just pop them in the microwave, grab a napkin and you’re off to the races….or wherever you happen to be going.

A great way to start the day.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
