Breakfast For Dinner

By now, most of you know if I share a breakfast recipe with you, I didn't make it for breakfast at all. We are big fans of breakfast dishes, but we enjoy them for dinner more. So when I test out new morning time recipes, it's at the end of my day. But that's okay. One way I know a recipe will be a success is when I can tell it's something that could be enjoyed any time of day, making it even more versatile.

I really wanted to make sure I got this one posted soon because I realize so many of you are preparing for the house guests that are about to descend upon your home. Let's face it, some of them will come for turkey and stay on through until you ring in the New Year. Okay, not really, but it might seem like that. You know, like Cousin Eddie in Christmas Vacation.

If that sounds familiar to you, you're going to love this recipe. It's easy, and can feed a crowd on a budget! Plus, they are perfect for when the household is all getting up at different times. Make them first thing in the morning for the early birds, and the teenagers can reheat them for brunch when they finally roll out of bed at 11.

So many of us concentrate on what we are going to serve for family dinners or entertaining during the evening meal, sometimes remembering you actually have to feed those squatters, err, lovely family members, three meals a day can seem over whelming. Don't fret. I'm here to help, and I've brought along some yummy...and easy... breakfast burritos to help!

Baked Breakfast Burritos
8 eggs
1 package pre-cooked bacon, fried crisp and chopped
1 c. shredded taco cheese
8 oz. button mushrooms, sliced
1/4 c. sour cream
2 TBS butter
6 green onions, chopped, a few reserved for garnish
Salt and Pepper to taste
6 flour tortillas

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 11 x 7 baking dish. In a large skillet saute mushrooms and green onions until soft. Remove from skillet. In a large bowl whisk together eggs and sour cream. Cook in skillet until set to desired consistency. I kept mine just a little soft to allow for extra cooking in the oven. Combine mushrooms and bacon with egg mixture. Stir and cook until heated through. Fill the center of each tortilla with egg mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Roll tightly. Place seam side down in baking dish. Spray with nonstick spray. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 5-10 minutes until browned and cheese melted. Top with salsa and extra green onions.
