When I returned to college, the cafeteria had a breakfast burrito that made me drool, but had to be about 1500 calories on its own. This is a great substitute, tastes like the real thing, and hits the spot.

These breakfast burritos, stuffed with potatoes, scallions, scrambled eggs and cheese, are a great way to start the day when you have time to sit down to a real meal. They also make a fabulous easy dinner. Add a side of black beans and some corn sautéed with chiles and lime juice, and you have breakfast for dinner, south-of-the-border style.

I tried this one to see if it would suffice for replacing Amy's Burritos, which I love but cost about $3.50 each. I don't cook eggs often enough and really enjoyed this. I added a can of black beans to the mix to give it a little more substance, and substituted salsa for the tomato since I didn't have any fresh ones on hand. I think I'll get somewhere from 6-8 burritos out of the recipe, so it was well worth it. And I liked it a lot more than the Amy's breakfast burrito. Now I just need to find a good burrito recipe to replace her pinto bean burrito recipe and I'll be set! I am going to see if it works well frozen and if it does, I think I've at least found my breakfast burrito to eat in a pinch on rushed mornings!
