Recipe type: Breakfast
  • 30 eggs
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • ½-1 green pepper, chopped
  • 8-10 oz ham, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
  • 1- 2 cups cheese, finely shredded
  • 16 large tortillas
  1. Whisk the eggs, season with 1½ teaspoon salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat ½ Tablespoon of butter in a large nonstick skillet. Add half the peppers and cook for about 3 minutes, until they are softened.
  3. Add half the chopped ham to the peppers and cook for another 2 minutes.
  4. Add half the parsley and pour in half the egg mixture. Use a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon to constantly move the egg mixture around in the skillet until the eggs are cooked but are still soft.
  5. Place the egg filling into a bowl and repeat with the remaining ingredients. (You have to do the egg filling in 2 batches because it won't fit into one skillet.)
  6. You can use any kind of filling ingredients that you like. Here are a few ideas: mushrooms, onions, any herbs, sausage, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli, bacon, kielbasa, chicken, any deli meat, roasted red peppers.
  7. Place about ½ a cup of the egg filling into the center of each tortilla. Top with as much cheese as you like, ⅛ - ¼ cup.
  8. Fold the sides of the tortilla over the filling. Fold the bottom of the tortilla over the filling and roll it all the way around until you have a burrito.
  9. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients.
  10. Wrap each of the burritos in parchment paper.
  11. You can wrap each burrito is several layers of parchment paper and store them in a sealed container or ziptop bag. I wrap my burritos in parchment paper and then in several layers of aluminum foil. Store in the freezer.
  12. To reheat, all you have to do is unwrap the burrito leaving only one layer of parchment paper. Microwave for about 3 minutes, depending on your microwave.
