"Back to School"

Mornings are a blur here at Casa di Romano.  I am not exactly a morning person.  NOT AT ALL.  Really, I don't want to be up at 5:00am unless I haven't been to bed yet.  I'm a night owl at heart.  So...if it isn't quick and easy, it isn't happening here.

That is often a struggle for me.  How to juggle breakfast for the kids, lunches that are healthy, get ready, get a toddler up and ready for the day (who shares my love of mornings) and not sacrifice my sanity is rough.  I don't like the idea of throwing cold cereal filled with sugar at the boys every morning.  Which is not to say there is anything wrong with cereal, we eat cereal here occasionally.  I even buy the boys that sugary stuff they love too.  I just make sure to provide something substantial so that isn't an everyday habit.

I found some shortcuts and products that help make a breakfast burrito easy.  Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles, Southwestern EggBeaters, and shredded hashbrowns found in the refrigerated case near the eggs!  These three things make a mean breakfast burrito!!

Quick Breakfast Burritos

2 medium burrito flour tortillas
1/2 cup egg beaters (Southwest style)
3 teaspoons Jimmy Deans Sausage crumbles (I use turkey)
1/4 cup southwestern style shredded hashbrowns
a sprinkle of lowfat cheese

In a nonstick skillet, warm the flour tortillas.  (About 30 seconds on each side)

Add a tablespoon of butter to the skillet once you have warmed the tortillas.  Brown the hashbrowns for a minute or two.  Add sausage and EggBeaters.  Cook over medium heat until eggs are almost done and then add in cheese. 

Use half of cooked mixture in each tortilla.  Roll up and wrap in wax paper.  Serve and enjoy!

These are so yummy!  Really really good.  Healthy and a great breakfast.  Filling.  These will get you and your kids through the morning and I promise you won't miss the cereal!  ;)

Alright Smackers....I know this was short and sweet.  I have to get back into the groove of work so I might be off kilter here for a bit.  I will post my back to school review giveaway later tonight.  Be sure to check back for that tomorrow.  Anyone who participates today will get extra entries!

Love and healthy breakfasts to you!!

I am NOT a morning girl at all either! I must admit we are a cereal family around kids love the EviroKidz cereals. My kids are like me and find it hard to eat in the morning but we know the importance of getting something in the belly to start the day so this is about all we can take. Somedays we get wild and crazy and change it up with a bowl of oatmeal! ;-)
