Big Ole Breakfast Burrito

Macy Recipes

This is a great big breakfast. In this recipe we'll be putting the ingredients in a burrito, but it can be just as tasty served on a plate.

You will need:
1 bag of frozen hash browns (or 26 ounces of home made hash browns)
16 ounces bacon
1 medium onion diced
1 medium pepper diced
12 eggs
2 cups shredded cheese
6 wraps

For hardware we will need a cast iron pan, a lid, and a spatula. Because all of this is happening in one pan, over the fire, the kids can help add the ingredients to the pan as you cook it. They get to see these foods change with heat and time. To make this recipe a little simpler with more control, bust out your Eureka! camp stove. With a camping stove you will be able to more easily control the heat and grill up everything quickly. Teaching your kids about camping stove safety is another great lesson that they can benefit from for the rest of their camping life. Now on to the cooking... Start off by cooking your bacon. You can do sausage if you want, instead. Cook until the bacon is just done, do not over cook it. Remove the bacon but leave in the tasty grease. Now add the hash browns and cook until they are nice and brown. Because you are cooking on a cast iron pan over a direct fire you need the potatoes to crisp up before you toss them around or they will stick too much. Cook for five minutes before flipping. Once the potatoes are done you can add the chopped peppers and onions. You'll only need to cook them for a few minutes. As that is cooking you want to mix your 12 eggs. If you want, you can add a splash of milk or water, but i don't think it needs it. Crumble the bacon and add it back into the pan. Now add the eggs. Don't over mix, just make sure the eggs don't stick. Once the eggs are almost done, add cheese on top and put the lid on. Let the residual heat finish cooking the eggs. As the eggs finish cooking, add some wraps to any warm place near the fire. We don't want direct heat, we just want to warm them up to make folding them easier. Add the eggs to the wrap and serve! Salsa, hot sauce, and sour cream are all good extras to add.
