pepperoni and eggs breakfast burrito/tacos


pete and i had been dating for a few months when we all arranged for us to meet early and we were going to dirt bike riding.. after we rode we went back to his house and he and his brother, paul, proceeded to make me and my bff {who later became my sis n law} carey, pepperoni and eggs.. i had never had pepperoni and eggs.. i didn't know you could use pepperoni on anything other than a pizza.. but i was impressed with my eggs but immediately forgot about them because well i was 16 and umm things didn't stick around in the ole brain for very long.. later after we were married pete would buy pepperoni each week for the fridge i was confused why? his reply... doh.. eggs, to snack on, to make sandwiches, to put in a burrito shell, zap and have a snack.. i again didn't compute that pepperoni could be used for recipes other than pizza.. it then became staple in our fridge and we always have pepperoni in the lunch meat drawer.. lately it's turkey pepperoni.. however i had left over "real" pepperoni from a pizza i made so i decided to throw together these burritos.. i wrapped them up in foil and pete and i went yard saling.. they worked out perfect and easy.. and sooooooooooo good and simple...


pepperoni and cheese scrambled egg breakfast burritos/tacos

prep time: 20 minutes
cooking time: 10 minutes for the scrambled eggs
servings: 4

ingredients:

1/4 lb. sliced thin pepperoni, chopped {basically a handful}
1 tblsp. butter
8 large eggs
salt and pepper
3/4 shredded cheddar cheese

innards of the burrito/taco:

breakfast potatoes, my recipe for homefries works out perfect
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream
salsa
8 small fajita flour tortillas or 4 large

directions:

make your homefries or whatever breakfast potatoes you like.. while they are cooking about 10 minutes before done make your eggs.. in a non stick saute pan cook pepperoni over medium heat until it starts to crisp about 1 minute.. remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate.. keep pan over medium heat and melt butter.. whisk eggs in a bowl and add to the skillet and season with salt and pepper to taste.. cook eggs using a rubber spatula around the edges and bottom to prevent them from sticking and making that weird brown crust.. after about 2-3 minutes add cheese and cooked pepperoni.. continue to stir and incorporate everything.. cook another minute or 2 until they are set to your liking.. remove pan from stove.. heat your tortillas to package directions.. then take your tortillas and evenly divide potatoes on the tortillas, add eggs, more cheese maybe some sour cream and a little salsa.. roll up like a burrito or fold over like a taco.. serve with extra salsa on the side.. you can also use super easy pico de gallo.. be creative with your toppings.. maybe sliced avocado.. or use mozzarella instead of cheddar.. have fun.. :) and remember to always
 
enjoy and get cook'n!!
