Over the past few Saturdays we’ve been so busy with one thing and another I thought it would be nice if we could all sit down together as a family for our lunch. It’s always a quick snacky lunch on a Saturday as we’re so busy doing jobs and going here, there and everywhere. But it wasn’t meant to be. My son went out with his mates round town, my daughter went off with her Dad on another errand and I was left at home alone. Was I enjoying the quiet freedom of being at home by myself? Well at least I got the bathrooms cleaned and the hoovering done.
I’d planned to cook the Brunch Burritos from John Whaite Bakes At Home for our lunch. I don’t think I’ve ever had brunch in my life. Maybe before I had children I would have a late breakfast at the weekend over the Sunday papers. Now when people are eating brunch, I’m eating lunch as I’ve got up so early! The recipe serves one person but I’d quadrupled the quantities when doing my shopping. So at least I could work out how to cook it for one person and what a delicious and filling meal it was!
Here’s how to make the Brunch Burrito:
I chopped half a red onion, a quarter of a yellow pepper, about 50g of chorizo sausage and sprinkled some dried chilli on top of it. These were softened gently without oil in a frying pan.
In another frying pan I heated up a spoonful of oil.
To this I added two beaten eggs and cooked them as if I was making a plain omelette.
The cooked omelette is put on top of a warmed tortilla wrap.
I added half a tin of baked beans to the chorizo mixture and warmed it through. Then I put the beany mixture on top of the tortilla.
There was a lot of filling in the burrito so I had to eat it with a knife and fork!
I was so impressed with the burrito, it was tasty and filling. So a couple of days later on the Monday night I cooked four of them for us for our tea to use up the remaining ingredients. I’m so glad I did as even my fussy son enjoyed it. My hubby asked if I could grate cheese over it next time or add some sour cream.
Thankyou once again to John Whaite for such a delicious and speedy recipe, not just for brunch but for lunch and dinner too!
Love Sam xx
