Eggs for Every Occasion

When we asked for your favorite recipe using eggs for our recent giveaway (for a one-year supply of Eggland’s Best Eggs, an Emerilware Cast-Iron Skillet, and an All-Clad Reversible Griddle) we received an interesting assortment of dishes — from Cauliflower Custard to Breakfast Casserole to the winning recipe for Scrambled Omelet Breakfast Burritos shown below. We chose this recipe for its simplicity and the fact that Michele M. from Albion, IL used bell peppers in the dish (we took some creative license by leaving out the green bell pepper and using only red bell pepper but you use half of each if your kids like green peppers). We hope you enjoy this delicious breakfast burrito as much as we did.

Scrambled Omelet Breakfast Burritos
Makes 4 Servings
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
6 large Eggland’s Best eggs
2 tablespoons milk
Sea salt to taste
3/4 cup diced natural smoked deli turkey
4 large flour tortillas, warmed
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Picante sauce or salsa

Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and bell pepper to the skillet. Cook and stir until crisp-tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Whisk together the eggs, milk, sea salt, and turkey. Add to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until eggs are cooked through. Mix together the cheeses. Fill warm tortillas with egg mixture. Sprinkle each with 1/4 cup cheese. Top with picante sauce, if desired. Roll up burrito-style.
