Can we all just agree that burritos and tacos are some of the best ever foods? I made some the other week with pickled red onions, beef, and kale. Phenomenal. I’m crazy about plain old ground beef, tomato, lettuce, and cheese (heavy on the Greek yogurt and salsa, please). Make it into a salad? Yes, I’m totally down. And then there’s the less often visited breakfast burrito… We have been strangers for much too long.



Eating while photographing food is inevitable. And yummy. And satisfying. I don’t even need the tortilla to make me happy. But since it holds all the goodness, it can stay.


Two of the many things that make these particular burritos so good: the sausage and the eggs. My experience with breakfast sausage so far in my life has been those greasy little nuggets that are often served at a diner. This ain’t no diner sausage. And these eggs, oh these eggs… They’re some of the prettiest eggs I ever did see. The yolks are so bright; yellow and gold.



I’m glad to no longer be a stranger to the breakfast burrito (which I fully intend to eat at any meal that I please).

Happy Eating!
