Hearty Breakfast to start your day with!

I don’t know about you, but I love breakfast! French toast, pancakes, crepes, waffles, eggs, bacon and sausage. I normally only get a chance to make a hearty breakfast on the weekends for my family, during the week it’s cereal and oatmeal. So when I get a chance to make some yummy on the weekend I jump at it.

I found this recipe online and had to try it. If you like sausage, eggs, hash browns and cheese you will love this!

Breakfast burrito style! Please excuse the paper plate!

We added tortillas and made a breakfast burritos out of it. Here is what I would change though, this recipe makes a lot, well more than we could eat. I would half the sausage and only use one pound. We like a little spice, so I would use the hot sausage. I would also not use all the hash browns as well, it was a bit much. I would keep the same amount of eggs though. You could always add any ingredient you would use in an omlett such as ham, bacon, peppers.

This was a great dish to have for brunch. It was very filling and kept us full until we had an early dinner. We also have a bit of leftovers so we will be heating it up again for breakfast in the morning. What do you all think of this recipe? Would you try it, what would you change? Love to have your comments and feedback!
