Cooking with Kyle - Breakfast Burritos

Kyle made another  wonderful recipe in this week's, "Cooking with Kyle."  He decided to make a breakfast/brunch burrito, and fruit salad.  Almost all of the ingredients were on sale at Meijer this past week, so not only did it taste great, it was inexpensive to make.

These are the ingredients he used for his breakfast burrito: eggs, mushrooms, chicken sausage, cheese, and tortillas.     In the fruit salad, he used cantaloupe, bananas, strawberries, and grapes.

He started by cutting the mushrooms into small pieces, while the chicken sausage cooked. The directions said they could be cooked in the microwave, so that is what he decided to do.

Kara helped him break 6 eggs into a bowl.  I was not too thrilled when it became a race, and an broken egg ended up on the stove.  These two are so competitive sometimes.

He added some milk to the eggs, and then sprayed the skillet with cooking spray.

He added in the ingredients to the egg mixture while it was in the skillet

Once all of the ingredients were added, he made sure they were evenly distributed  throughout the pan

He had hoped to make it into more of an omelet than a scramble, but it was a bit too hard for him to get the eggs to fold over.

He rolled some of the eggs in each tortilla.   Our tortillas were too small to make an actual burrito, but it could easily be done with 10" tortillas

Brunch is served!  He once again  made an excellent recipe that we all loved.  I personally  really liked the addition of the chicken sausage to the burrito. ( Johnsonville brand)  It gave the taste a nice kick, and made it more filling.  This recipe is great for all ages, because it is very easy to change the ingredients to your own preference.  

Hmm... what should he make next week?

  1. Great job, Kyle! I love when kids are learning to cook. They come up with great creations. A breakfast burrito happens to be one of my favorite meals.

  7. I love it that you featured Kyle cooking. I think it's important that kids have the opportunity to try their hand at something that they usually only see adults doing. I'd love it if you share this at Whimsy Wednesday over at I'm following.

  8. Nice job, Kyle! That's a very well balanced meal and very attractive, too. I haven't used that brand of sausage yet, but I'm always looking for non-pork breakfast options. I'm glad to know that you all enjoyed it. Keep on cooking!
