Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Burritos

We all know that secondary to giving thanks, Thanksgiving is all about them leftovers. Last year I made these EPIC cheddar mashed potato waffles leftover sandwiches, and this year? Well, this year I stuffed them into a breakfast burrito and called it a day. Serve it with a side of gravy and cranberry sauce to complete the dish. Hearty, warm, and full of everything we love. These burritos are sure to be a hit!

 Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Burritos

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup leftover turkey, chopped
  • 1 cup leftover stuffing, chopped
  • 1/2 cup leftover vegetables (like green beens or brussels sprouts)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 spoonfuls of leftover mashed potatoes
  • 4 large tortillas 
  • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  • leftover gravy and/or cranberry sauce for dipping

In a large saute pan, melt the butter over medium-heat. Add in the chopped turkey, stuffing, and vegetables. Cook until heated through. 

Crack the eggs into the pan and stir into the filling. Continue to cook until the eggs are cooked through. 

Meanwhile, heat up the mashed potatoes and tortillas. Spread a spoonful of mashed potato down the center of each tortilla, then top with the leftover/egg filling. Sprinkle with the fresh parsley and fold up like a burrito. I found it easier to eat by wrapping it with a piece of tin foil to keep the filling from falling out. 

Serve warm with leftover gravy and/or cranberry sauce.

My taste tester couldn't wait to get his hands on these.
