Breakfast Burrito Pitas

Breakfast-Burrito-Pita

Breakfast burritos are especially wonderfully delicious when they have fried potatoes in them.

Oh and they’re really good with sage 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.

Since in combination, all of these ingredients taste plain old good together, why not put them in something other than a flour tortilla.  Like maybe put them in a pita.  Good idea!

So there you have it, a breakfast burrito pita is born.

And the fried potatoes are every bit as delicious.

These breakfast burrito pitas can be made ahead of time and 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.

Thank you for stopping by and have a nice long weekend.

So let’s check out the ingredients.
