What did you have for breakfast today?

Was it satisfying to your taste buds?

Did you choke down the same o' boring thing you have every morning?

Rarely do I prepare identical meals. The concept, techniques are similar, but the ingredients vary. In today's podcast, I share with you what I had for breakfast and how I made it. I am not your typical follow-the-cook-book cook. Often, I prepare meals with whatever is readily available in the refrigerator and cupboards. Variety is the spice of life. Right?

It drives me crazy to waste food. It's common for me to whip up weird concoctions when I am cooking for myself. Sometimes I make an outrageously delicious meal and on the rare occasion something that only the dog enjoys.

The breakfast burrito recipe below is like the one I described in the podcast. It wasn't until after I ate the mentioned burrito I realized, "Hey! Great podcast topic." Adjust the ingredients to suit your taste buds. Be creative, Darlin'!

Kitchen Tips:

-->Freeze extra (leftover) kidney, pinto, lentil beans to add to soups, burritos and other meals for additional fiber and protein.

-->Add your favorite salsa one to two minutes prior to removing the potato hash from the skillet. This will allow the "juice" (liquid) to evaporate. It's one way to enjoy the salsa flavor without all the sloppy mess while eating.

Leftover Burrito

Corn tortilla, sliced brat burger heated with barbecue sauce, corn cut off the cob, saute'd zucchini strips and sliced onion, chopped fresh parsley and thyme, and chopped green onion.

You'd be amazed at some meals you create when you allow yourself to follow your taste buds and explore your refrigerator.

  1. Wow! While I've become an old hand at cooking with whatever I happen to have around, this breakfast is making my taste buds water! I'd just have to replace the egg with a tofu scramble and trade the jalapeno (not a fan) for a green pepper and I've got it made!
