Breakfast burrito for a Sunday brunch…

Burritos are everywhere these days and I have to say I’m very happy about that.  I thought I was going to have burrito withdrawal symptoms when we left Dublin, as I was a big fan of Boojum, but I was very pleased to see the familiar Boojum logo when I was walking up Botanic Avenue – the burritos in there are gorgeous – street food is the next big foodie trend apparently.  I mean how can you go wrong with burritos, some sort of slow cooked tender meat, with rice, beans, sour cream, guacamole, and a spicy salsa, all wrapped up in a soft tortilla wrap.  They really are the best kind of ‘fast’ food there is.

So with my inspiration taken from that wonderful Mexican culinary invention I decided to make a breakfast burrito for brunch today.

I had got some good quality bacon and beef sausages from Abbot’s butchers on the Lisburn Road, which I fried in the pan and then placed into a hot oven for 10 minutes, just to make sure the sausages were cooked through and the bacon was crispy.  I then sliced up some red onion and spring onions, fried them in the same pan until they were starting to go a little bit charred and sticky.  Then I beat 3 eggs and made an omelette.

Then it was just a matter of putting it all together.  I warmed a couple of tortilla wraps, cut the sausages length ways, laid them in the wraps, and put the bacon in as well.  I cut the omelette into thick strips and placed on top of the sausage and bacon.  To finish I added a few spoonfuls of good quality tomato salsa, scattered over the fried onions, wrapped it all up and got stuck in.  The next time I make this I’m thinking a few fried potatoes would be nice and a bit of guacamole too.
