Bacon and Egg Breakfast Burritos with Ricotta Spread (and some great friends to make them with)

Our good friend Ashley was in town from Minnesota a few weekends ago. It was wonderful to spend time with her and a great excuse to have some extra time with the girls (Matt was there most of the time was fun hanging out with you too, Matt!) It was just a great, full, lovely weekend. And we even had a chance to make some yummy food...

So first the food then a few extra pics from the weekend...

So good! Avacado? check. Tomato? check. Cheese? check. Oh yeah, 3 kinds! Bacon? check.
What more could you ask for?

Here's a close-up of all the insides...

The Recipe: (for 4 people or so)

  • Flour tortillas
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Some shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8-10 slices of cooked bacon
  • 6 or 7 scrambled eggs (I whisk the eggs together with a few tablespoons of milk, cream, whichever I have around, and some salt and pepper)
  • Ricotta spread (recipe below)

The Method:
  1. Warm the tortillas
  2. Spread some ricotta on each tortilla
  3. Layer up with egg, bacon, tomato, avocado and cheese (microwave for 30 seconds to melt the cheese)

Ricotta spread recipe: mix the following together
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 3-4 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
Ricotta spread above. (We all agreed that this was the key element to the breakfast burritos)

And now a few pics from the weekend...
Janine, Ashley, Me and Christine. Crazy to think that we have known each other now for almost 10 years!

Lots of laughs

And good food. (I know this isn't actually food but the picture is from a restaurant so it's pretty close.)

And more laughs

Gotta walk to FO Mahones in our neighborhood

I don't explanation

I liked the lighting. (And the subject)

Thanks for coming, Ashley! We'll see you soon when we come to MN.
