Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast Burrito

This was what I made for our Sunday family breakfast not long ago. It is so good, and the best part is it doesn’t take long to prepare. All I had to cook is scrambled eggs and spicy sausage, the rest is all about assembling.

This is what you need:
flour tortilla wraps
scrambled eggs
ham
spicy sausage
avocado slices
shredded cheese
your favorite salsa

Wrap up all ingredients (except avocado slices– put them in after warming up the burritos) and microwave until burrito is warm and cheese has melted.

Guacamole (bottom) and salsa(top right) is always served with tortilla chips

Guacamole (bottom) and salsa(top right) is always served with tortilla chips

My family loves avocados and of course guacamole too. This is a basic guacamole recipe. However, feel free to add tomatoes, onion, jalapeno peppers, cilantro, drizzle of lime juice (to prevent it from oxidizing and turning brown color) etc. I make this dip many times for gathering. It’s so easy to make– all you do is season and mix it up. Ordering guacamole from a restaurant is expensive, but if you make it yourself I guarantee it will be cheaper and taste much better.

Ingredients:
4 ripe large avocados (I preferred Hass avocados)
1 clove garlic– finely chopped
pinch of salt
tiny pinch of ground cumin

Method:

Cut avocados into halves, remove seed and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Add garlic, salt and ground cumin, use a fork to mash up to desired chunkiness. Eat with tortilla chips or as a spread for bread, burger or sandwich.

Sushi: Caterpillar Roll

I learned making sushi from my friend Amy. The pictures shown above are the ones I made for New Year’s Eve party (I know… it’s while ago) at our house. The assorted rolls include california rolls (crab salad+avocado), Philadelphia rolls (smoked salmon+cream cheese+avocado) and unagi rolls (eel+cucumber+avocado). Caterpillar Roll is just unagi roll with avocado slices on the top. Our friends the Empenbergers couldn’t make it to the party so I made them some M & M Rolls (mango salad+macadamia nuts) later on separate date. M & M Roll is one of my favorite and I wish I could show you the picture… okay, I’ll try to remember the camera next time before finishing all up 🙂

If you notice, all my sushi rolls do not have raw fish. That’s because I don’t want to take risk by buying fish from regular fish store, not even sushi graded fish. The only “safe” places that I probably would get raw fish are Japanese grocery stores, ie Yaohan, but it’s so far far far away in San Jose. My Japanese roommate took me there once back in college years, not sure if it’s still there…
