Grilled Breakfast Burrito

 Cinco de Mayo is almost here, start with a celebratory Breakfast Burrito! Yum! The kids will love as much as the adults! May 5, 2016 is just around the corner!

I love breakfast burrito's! I order one quite often when we are out for brunch or breakfast. I especially like them full of red peppers and potatoes. I think you will agree this is a easy recipe only requiring a skillet and a grill, not much clean up here!

Grilled Breakfast Burrito

1/4 c. vegetable oil
4 red potatoes
1 yellow onion
1/2- 1 whole red pepper
1/4 c. unsalted butter
8 eggs beaten
1 lb of your favorite sausage, breakfast sage, chorizo, sage or Italianor you can sub ham, bacon or meatless
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground  pepper
1 c. Monterey jack cheese (can use low fat)
1 c. sharp cheddar cheese (can use low fat)
10 large flour tortilla's, flavored or not
nonstick cooking spray

In a large skillet over a medium temperature, heat the oil and fry the potatoes until they are almost cooked through. Add the onions and red peppers, and continue to cook until all the vegetables are tender. Drain oil and set aside on a plate with paper towels (to further soak in the oil). Fry the sausage, drain and add to the vegetables to further drain.

In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Scramble the eggs, and add the potatoes, vegetables and sausage. sseason to taste with salt and pepper.

Lay out the tortillas and layer first with the cheeses, then the egg mixture. Roll into a burrito. Spray a hot grill with cooking spray and grill for about 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. I have a built in grill and can do 6 at a time, but you can use a electric grill such as George Foreman grill or even the skillet you have been using.

Serve hot with Pico de Gallo, sour cream, avocado and salsa!

Option for meatless or addtionally- black bean

Baby Sprinkle Shower - How to give

Just because you already have a child (or two… or three…) doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be showered with love for your upcoming baby. Baby “sprinkles” are becoming very popular for second, third and subsequent babies — a much lower key gathering. My niece Allie (Mother of 5) asked me, "What? A Sprinkle? What is that?" I explained and her response was, "Oh! Ryder, (her fifth born) must of been a DRIP!" Oh my gosh, how funny!
With minimal pressure and an informal feel to them, a baby sprinkle party is a lovely way to welcome a new addition.

Mississippi Pot Roast-slow cooker

Mississippi resident Robin Chapman is the star behind the Mississippi Roast, a slow-cooking dish with surprisingly simple ingredients that has become one of the most popular recipes on the Internet. Chapman says she shares credit for the recipe's fame with her long time friend Karen Farese, who helped launch the recipe to stardom by putting it in her church's cookbook. From there, Robin says that a blogger shared it, then another blogger shared it, it made its way to Pinterest, and soon after went viral, gaining the name Mississippi Roast along the way, and making it one of the most popular recipes on the internet today.
