I can never resist the temptation to join in a good ol’ recipe contest. Saucy Mama recently threw down the gauntlet to me and a handful other talented food bloggers to see who could dream up the best five ingredient recipe using select Saucy Mama condiments. With prizes and bragging rights on the line, I just couldn’t let the opportunity to throw my hat in the ring pass me by.
Let me just say, it is hard to come up with a recipe that only uses five ingredients. I’m the kind of cook that likes to add a dab of this and a dollop of that until I get things just right. Some of my creations are downright embarrassing there are so many additions! But I wasn’t going to let that deter me. I’d been wanting to put together a breakfast burrito for sometime now, and it struck me. Why not add a bit of the southwest dressing to my eggs and see what happens? The result is a simple and satisfying breakfast burrito that whips up in no time flat but tastes like you worked all morning putting it together. Throw a little cheese, bacon, and cilantro into the mixture and you’ll be licking your lips and heading back for another round.
To make your own saucy mama burrito, you’ll first cook up two slices of bacon. Love me some bacon.
When it’s cooked up good crispy like, remove it from the pan and chop it up. Reserve the bacon grease. In a separate bowl, whisk together a few eggs, a couple spoonfuls of dressing, a little fresh cilantro and a shake or two of salt and pepper.
Now add in that beautiful bacon and stir it into the eggs.
Put your pan with the bacon grease on medium heat and scramble up the tortilla filling. Hola Guapa.
Now, grab up a handful of tortillas and line them down the center with the egg mixture. Add in a little Mexican cheese for good measure.
Place the tortilla in a toaster oven for a minute or two to melt that cheese and get your burrito nice and toasty warm.
Roll it up and serve with whatever condiments your heart (and appetite) desire. I added some tomatoes, black beans, salsa, green onions, and sour cream.
Not bad for 5 ingredients if I do say so myself.
And now for the fun part!
Saucy Mama has graciously offered to give away a set of their dressings, marinades and mustards to one lucky reader.
