"Good Morning" Breakfast Burritos

As you know I am always searching for and creating breakfast recipes (boredom at breakfast isn't a good way to start the day). Its one of those meals, that for some reason, seems limited in the variety of food we serve and eat. Our family loves breakfast burritos and we eat them often, they are easy and delicious. But I wanted to give the "regular breakfast burrito" a little "spicing up"...so this is what I came up with. My family appreciated my creative efforts and actually wanted more when the pan was empty. I should have doubled the recipe...next time I will. It would be a great "brunch" recipe or something that you could serve to a large amount of people...like on Christmas morning (ha ha ha...you know its just around the corner). Regardless of the time of year, it's a great, satisfying meal that is sure to start your day out right. Enjoy~

"Good Morning" Breakfast Burritos
1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled, divided
1 lb. sausage, cooked and crumbled
10-12 eggs, scrambled
2 c. grated cheese
1 package raw mushrooms
6 flour tortillas (10 inch rounds)

Cheese Sauce:
Cut 1/2 brick Velvetta Cheese into small cubes. Place in a microwave safe dish. Add 1/4 c. milk and stir. Microwave on high for 1:30 minutes then stir, continue to cook and stir every 30 seconds until cheese is melted and forms a sauce (if you like your cheese sauce thinner, add more milk...but we like ours a little thicker...don't add more milk until after its all done and you can see that you are going to want yours thinner). I have tried the NO NAME brands of processed cheese, none of them measure up to the taste or smoothy texture of the Velvetta brand. I recommend that you use the "real stuff" when making this.   

Saute mushrooms until tender, BUT not soggy. Set aside. Warm tortillas for about 15 seconds a piece or until they are slightly warm. This makes rolling the burritos much easier. Spoon scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, cheese and mushrooms down the center of tortilla and roll up. Place in a 9x13" baking pan. Continue until all of your tortillas are filled. REMEMBER to SAVE some of your BACON out to put on top of the burritos. Pour Cheese Sauce on top and add bacon pieces. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until burritos are completely heated through.

Happy Cooking~
