Bacon Weave Breakfast Burrito
Today Noah wanted me to make a breakfast burrito for him, which we do all the time, but he wanted a "hawaiian" version, wasn't sure what that was. Thought, pinapple, coconut, mango kinda thing, maybe, so I jumped onto trusty google and sadly everything but a Hawaiian breakfast burrito came up. But what instantly caught my eye was this amazing recipe from Food & Wine, that I just had to try. Only road block was, I don't have a smoker, so my mind went to work.
Then I remembered my Best Friend Trinity, telling me a few years back about how her husband was smoking something in the oven....I was baffled but in a hurry so never got her to elaborate on it, UNTIL NOW, LOL
Trin answered the phone, but Shawn was at work, and I needed an answer. She was texting him and he replied, I googled it... ugh smartie pants. So Back to trusty google where I instantly found the answer: How to smoke meat in an oven.
So off to work I went. The downfall to the whole experiment was the giant mess afterwords. But I will have to say, the Freaking this was one of the most amazing things that has hit my mouth in a long ass time! It was smokey, the eggs were absolutely perfect and not one ounce of seasoning on those, the little bits of bacon inside were chewy and crispy and it had exactly enough cheese, not to melt everywhere but still hold a string between your fist and mouth.
So this is what you will need for My version:
1 Pound of center cut bacon
1 Bag of frozen hash browns ( always have one or two bags in the freezer, I am addicted to those with ketchup for a quick late night snack, funny though, never quick, LOL)
4 eggs (scrambled)
1 Cup Shredded Cheese (I Used Colby Jack & Mozerella)
1/2 Cup Pico de Gallo or Chunky Salsa
Prepare basket weave as shown here
Place the bacon in the oven as directed by the how to smoke meat in an oven, but lay flat as we will roll when close to done.
When the bacon is almost starting to crisp, start the eggs and remove the bacon from the oven to rest.
when the eggs are done, add in the cheese and spoon onto the bacon sheet. (the bacon rested for about 5 or so minutes and was fine to handle as it was on the rack so it cooled quickly.
Roll it up and make sure the seam ends up on the bottom. This will help ensure that the burrito stays together while you’re cooking it.
Place it back in the oven until golden brown.
remove, let set 5 minutes, then cut and serve.
This was supposed to feed 4 according to the directions, but it really fed two boys. and I got a bite. Izzy and I ate a smoothie bowl, that was just as delicious but on the opposite spectrum.
As usual, I hope you enjoyed this recipe and if you have any tips or tricks for me, please leave them in the comment section below. Have an amazing day.
