Morning After Breakfast Burritos

¡vamos a comer! 
(Let's Eat!)

We have all experienced one of those days when we are just completely wore out, tired and need a quick pick me upper meal. Well this is it! My Morning After Breakfast Burritos will provide you with what you need to get your day started.

Start with fingerling potatoes, if you don't have fingerling a good Idaho potato would do the job. 

Everyone always has eggs in the refrigerator, you can also substitute with egg beaters, I do this all the time. 

If you want, you could just stop here and eat. That is how good these potatoes taste, they really don't need anything else.

I tell you this is full of goodness, look at it, add some taco sauce, sour cream and cheese to really bring this burrito to another level.

I stuffed my burrito so big, I had to use a fork. Use your hands, no one is looking.

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
