Breakfast Burrito and Hangover Cure
Ah, it’s after All Hallow’s Eve and I am sure that many of you have had an awesome night behind you. In that case, how about an awesome breakfast to help you and kill that hangover. Welcome to Kitsune’s Kitchen!
- 5-6 eggs
- Nopales (cactus leaves, sliced)
- Bell peppers
- Meat (sausage or bacon)
Grab a skillet and throw in the chopped bell peppers, onions, and, if they’re fresh or raw, throw in the jalapenos, nopales, and meat as well. Note: if the nopales are fresh, you will need to remove the spines. Bottled nopalitos have already been cleaned and sliced, and they will also keep longer than the fresh ones.
In a bowl, crack the eggs and add enough milk to make the eggs a whiteish yellow (about 3/4th cup). Add more milk if you want to stretch the eggs further. As the peppers and onions soften up, add in the egg mixture, stirring with a spatula as if you are making scrambled eggs. If the jalapenos, nopales, and meat are canned or already cooked, add them now. Also, add the mushrooms now.
If you fancy your tortillas warm, you can either take a separate skillet and warm the tortillas on low heat or you can pop them in the microwave with wet paper towels between each tortilla and one on top. If you have neither spare skillet nor microwave, you can put the tortillas directly on the spiral burners for a few seconds on each side. This doesn’t work for gas burners.
Once the egg mixture is done, take it off the burner and fill a tortilla! You can either add cheese to the mixture or as a topping. You can also top with some salsa, hot sauce, or any other condiment you would like. Bacon is always a great condiment! Speaking of bacon…
Science has recently come to the conclusion that bacon is awesome, since it has the added benefit of helping to cure hangovers. So, let us add some bacon to this meal.
- Bacon! Lots of it.
Take the bacon, lay it out flat on a baking sheet, and pop it in the oven at 450° for 13 minutes. DO NOT PREHEAT THE OVEN. You will need to check on the bacon to gauge when it is done, depending on your preference. Letting it cook for 13 minutes will produce soft bacon while maybe 15 minutes will give you crunchy. Baby the bacon and just watch it.
If you want to throw several in with the burrito, no one will argue with you (certainly not I). If you want to make a bacon sandwich, you can also add cheese, lettuce, tomato, and more bacon for a BLT.
After this wholesome meal, your Friday will be kickass. Go and have an awesome bacon day!
