Breakfast Burrito For One

Cheesy Spinach Breakfast Burrito

Cheesy Spinach Breakfast Burrito

Let’s face it. Sometimes we all want a warm, healthy breakfast that won’t break the bank, but we’re either too busy or too lazy to take the time to cook it up. This recipe is perfect for that kind of morning! It is one of my favorite super simple breakfasts to make when my hubby is working and my kiddos just want cereal or fruit. I came up with this while I was pregnant with my son. I needed to eat healthily even when alone with my toddler, but was unable to stand for more than a few minutes to cook without complications. I was also craving spinach morning, noon and night. This Cheesy Spinach Breakfast Burrito hit the spot! You can also use the same ingredients, multiply it by the ammount of burritos you need, and just cook it stove top like scrambled eggs. When I do that, I add sliced fresh mushrooms, since they cook better in the pan. (They’re good in the microwave, too, just slice thin.) If you’re like me, and want to keep it simple and snappy in the mornings, this is a meal for you! It literally is completely done, from opening the fridge to that first yummy bite, in less than five minutes. There are also some great coupons to go along with it this week. You can’t beat that! 🙂

How to make it…

Saving and Slow Cooking

Penny Pinching Peach

If you’re like me,  a slow cooker is your best friend! I received a slow cooker (aka crockpot) as a wedding present. We  use it so frequently that it never gets put up in the pantry with all of my other bulky kitchen gadgets, unless we are prettifying the house for company. Since I’m not only busy, but habitually frugal, I love finding delicious dinners that can be quickly thrown together in the crockpot and hardly cost a thing. That kind of meal makes me happy on many levels! It satisfies my love of all things yummy, simplifies my life, and keeps my purse a little fuller. What more could a girl ask for?

This recipe is super simple and should be a hit with adults and kiddos alike. Are you ready for this? It is Slow Cooker Pizza!! On the count of three, we all say “YUM!!!” 1, 2, 3….YUM!!! Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system… 😉

There are a few coupons available for the ingredients in this recipe, so that spices things up a bit, too. Link and savings will be after the recipe…

~Slow Cooker Pizza~

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef (we use ground deer or turkey as a substitute for ground beef)

1 (8 ounce) package rigatoni (or other shaped) pasta

1 (16 ounce) package Kraft shredded mozarella

1 can Campbell’s condensed cream of tomato soup

2 (14 ounce) jars pizza sauce

1 (8 ounce) package Hormel pepperoni

Veggies of choice (i.e mushrooms, peppers, onions)

*Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook about 8-10 minutes,  until al dente; drain and set aside.

*Brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain off grease.

*In slow cooker, alternate layers of ground beef, noodles, cheese, soup, sauce, pepperoni and any veggies you chose to add.

*Cook on Low setting for 4 hours.

Total number of coupons for this menu: 3, but I added Sargento cheese to the list to print because I didn’t see the Kraft one there when I went to publish, so it shows 4.

Now go print ’em, redeem ’em, cook it up and enjoy!

I’d love to hear how it turned out for you. 🙂

The coupons should be pre-clipped at the link below, but if it didn’t stay clipped for you, just look at the items above that have a brand name and that’s what to look for.
