Tommy’s Breakfast Burritos

PA260161Tommy made these Breakfast Burritos when I was in Chicago several months ago. They were the perfect meal for the morning after a wild night out. I got a kick out of Michael eating eggs too – since prior to Tommy he would have preferred eating bacon and potatoes only. I asked Tommy to walk me through his recipe while he was in North Carolina so I could feature it on Mod Meals!

Tommy’s Breakfast Burritos


  • 4 or so small potatoes, chopped into half-inch pieces
  • canola oil
  • bacon or sausage
  • eggs (about 2 per person)
  • flour tortillas
  • cheddar cheese, shredded
  • white onion, chopped
  • salsa
  • salt and pepper


Assembly: In a large skillet, heat about 1/2 cup oil (a light variety). Add potatoes and cook until soft in the middle and brown and crispy on the outside. We added Portuguese Chorizo and crisped it up (you could just make bacon and add it on top). Once the potatoes are crispy, drain the oil out of the pan. Meanwhile, scramble the eggs and season with salt and pepper (Tommy adds a little milk too). Cook until scrambled to your liking. Serve with warm tortillas, cheese, onion and salsa.
