We are a backwards family and one of the many weird things we like to do, although I have been told many do this too, is eat breakfast dishes for dinner. Whether it’s scrambled eggs on toast, fried eggs & sausages, or even a bowl of cereal, if I am home alone and don’t want to cook. So it inspired me to make a more suitable dinner meal using eggs. My mother always made us scrambled eggs with American country sausage cooked together similar to this which is where I got my idea from.

Mexican Style: Egg & Beef Burritos
You can eat it numerous ways. Try putting it on toast or cut out the carbs, like Mr P who loves to eat it in a bowl as is.
Since, Buba can’t eat eggs due to allergies, I scoop out a cup of the cooked beef, onion and peppers before I add the eggs and mix it with rice for him which he loves.
Don’t like spicy use mild salsa or just freshly diced tomatoes on top! Try it and let me know what you think!
