In the sweet, sweet summertime, it seems like so many of my blog recipes are from the lake. With a busy schedule at home, it’s easy to turn to trusted and true recipes on weeknights – which means my new, fun recipes sometimes have to wait until we’re with the in-laws at their lake house.
I’ve been wanting to try make-your-own breakfast burritos for YEARS! I first had them at a conference for work in San Antonio, TX in 2009. I remember walking up to their continental breakfast table, seeing dozens of ingredients laid out, and thinking – this is such an awesome idea!
Since then, I’ve considered making them for New Years Day breakfast with friends, but we always opt for bagels or something easy instead. I’ve considered making them for a special breakfast for Brett, but with only 2 of us, it would be a waste of food.
So, as always…lake time to the rescue. Memorial Day weekend was the perfect opportunity to make these, with 5 grown adults needing breakfast. These are fun, so filling, and make a nice presentation.
