A Cowboy's Life: Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast Burritos

9:37:00 AM

Isn’t it funny how certain things are embedded in your brain? A certain smell, food or activity that can always bring back a memory or time in your life? When I think about my dad, specific memories always come to mind – the smell of his cologne, riding in his truck listening to the Marshal Tucker Band and his famous breakfast burritos.
My dad would always make his breakfast burritos in the Fall, especially on Saturday mornings after football games. We all know that high school football is big business in Texas and my dad was eager to recap the game with my brothers and discuss their performance. The smell of the eggs and onions simmering was incentive enough to wake up before noon on the weekends. Even now, when we are all together during the holidays he request that he makes these.
To make the breakfast burritos you will need:
Lone Star Eggs
¼ cup chopped onion
1 jalapeno
¼ shredded cheese
salsa (optional)

Brown onions and jalapenos in pan. Add eggs and fold into onions and jalapenos. Once scrambled, add egg mixture to tortilla and top with cheese and salsa. Serve immediately. 

I prefer to make my breakfast burritos with Lone Star Eggs that are fresh off a Texan ranch. I LOVE Texas and all that it stands for and supporting those with same Texas pride. I picked up the eggs and ingredients at my local Walmart.
