Breakfast of Champions
I wasn't kidding about having bacon and brownies this past weekend. The sugary snack kept me going while the salty meat got me going. One of my guilty pleasures is the breakfast burrito from Guy & Gallard which I only order occasionally while working at a location that happens to be in the right delivery area. There is just something about their tightly wrapped little burrito filled with bacon, eggs, and cheese that just works! I haven't even been able to replicate it at home, though I tried this weekend and got close. I think the real key, I'm afraid to say, is their use of...(gasp) American Cheese! This is the only occasion that I can think of where it might actually be a preferable cheese choice because of its sodium content coupled with crazy melt-ability. I personally refuse to purchase it so opted for a sharp cheddar instead. It was delicious, but just not the same. Perhaps a little too upscale? If you want to attempt your own homemade breakfast burrito chock full of your diner favorites, just don't over fill or it will be difficult to roll up and the tortilla will tear. Be sure to then wrap the burrito in aluminum foil and throw into a 350˚F oven for 5 - 10 minutes to heat through. Just try to be satisfied by a plain bowl of cereal again.
P.S. With all of my recent preoccupation, I missed the one year anniversary of this blog which occurred last week. I am astonished to think that I got it to last longer than one day let alone an entire year. I realize that I am a baby in the blog world but hey, YAY ME!
