It’s always pretty to have starchy linens on a rustic wooden tray.

I love the combination of cobalt blue with natural linen and white.

And I always seem to have a piece of ribbon in my drawers..

so that wrapped up my

vintage cutlery.

The burrito

was wrapped up as well with string and parchment..

but you could skip that step.

This is a healthier breakfast burrito as it uses mostly egg whites, avocado and of course lovely drippy

{ mango slices }

IMG_3992If you left the breakfast sausage out you would lighten up the calories

but you might need those for your

Canmore to Banff bike trip with your girlfriend

This is a recipe for one, but you’ll have enough ingredients left-over to

embellish your dinner salad when you get back home.

Ingredients
  • 1 10" Byblos tortilla
  • splash of olive oil
  • 1/4 yellow pepper diced
  • 1 fat 3 inch breakfast sausage, casings removed (I used Spolumbo's)
  • sprinkling of cumin
  • smidge of salt
  • touch of butter
  • 1 large egg, whisked together with
  • 1/2 cup liquid egg white
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tbsp black beans, rinsed
  • 1 green onion (scallion) diced
  • 4-6 small cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 mango, sliced
  • shredded monterey jack cheese or mexican blend shredded cheese
  • 1/4 mango, sliced
  • salsa to taste
  • light sour cream to taste
  • hot sauce to taste
Instructions
  1. In a small non-stick skillet, heat the splash of olive oil over medium heat. Add the yellow pepper and crumble the sausage in. Season with a sprinkling of cumin and a smidge of salt. Cook until the pepper is slightly softened and the sausage is cooked through. Remove to a plate and press with paper towel to remove some of the grease from the sausage.
  2. Wipe the skillet clean and add a touch of butter and heat over medium heat. Add the whisked egg and liquid egg whites and cook, stirring until the eggs are scrambled. Season with salt and pepper if you wish.
  3. Heat the tortilla by placing on a large skillet warmed on your stove then flip.
  4. Remove from heat and plate. Layer the eggs down the center of the tortilla. Top with the sausage mixture. Then add black beans, green onion, cherry tomatoes, mango and avocado slices to taste. Top with shredded cheese if you wish.
  5. Salsa and sour cream can be added directly into the burrito or can be placed on the side.
  6. I love an extra shake of hot sauce as I go, there are several varieties that are authentically from Mexico.
  7. I also enjoy a squeeze of lime, it's piquant flavor goes so beautifully with the mango.
  8. Wrap and cut in half if you wish and devour. I wrapped mine in parchment paper to keep the bottom from dripping out, but these can just be eaten whole.
  9. You will have extra avocado, mango, black beans etc, these are lovely added to any mixed green salad for another meal.
