Hungry? Make This Breakfast Skillet Burritos Recipe

Are you ever on the hunt for an easy breakfast or breakfast for lunch recipe?  I think I’m obsessed with utilizing tortilla shells in my meals.  So when my daughter requested breakfast for her birthday party lunch, I was thrilled.  My original thoughts were Cinnamon Baked French Toast and Egg Bake.  However, there was going to be a lot of kids at the party and I didn’t know if Egg Bake would go over well.  Plus, getting it done perfectly without over-cooking can be tricky when on a timeline.  And I didn’t want to have it not fully cooked when everything else was ready to go either.  So I scratched that idea and created this Easy Breakfast Skillet Burritos Recipe instead.

Easy Breakfast/Brunch Menu

Birthdays usually really stress me out.  So this time, I decided to plan a menu that would give me time to relax.  Along with the Cinnamon Baked French Toast, which I could make the night before so it just had to bake.  We also served store bought mini muffins, fresh fruit, breakfast sausages, and these Breakfast Skillet Burritos.  Hearty and filling but easy to make and serve!  I loved being able to spend most of the party OUT of the kitchen for once!

Super easy, I actually made this an hour ahead of time and then kept warm in my Ninja Cooker, however, any slow cooker would suffice.

  3. Slice and dice the onions and peppers. Set aside.
  4. Have hashbrowns and sausages measured out and ready to go. Set aside.
  5. Turn burner back on low and add egg mixture, onions, and peppers. Sprinkle with desired amount of salt and pepper.

The colors in this Easy Breakfast Skillet Burritos Recipe makes it as appealing to the eye as it is to the taste buds!  I also love the fact that it’s easy to customize.  Add in extra ingredients such as mushrooms if you prefer.  It’s also VERY easy to double and feed a crowd!  For the birthday party, we had 26 people and I doubled this recipe BUT I also had the extra sides and two pans of Cinnamon Baked French Toast too.

Pair your Breakfast Skillet Burriots with this delicious Blueberry Bramble Bake for an unforgettable meal.  Or, if you’re looking to make an entire spread, whip up some Baked French Toast and Yogurt Fruit Salad too.

Oh, yum!! This is making me hungry just looking at those photos. I need to try this for lunch one day for my kids. I feel like we get stuck in a rut at lunch time, but we have more time to try new things this time of year. Can't wait until our chickens start laying ... I'll be looking for all the recipes with eggs then! haha!
