after reading this recipe 5 years ago, I suggested to our chamber of commerce director we do this for our food booth at the annual Senior Pro Rodeo only make it as a filling for breakfast burritos. Our booth is there only for the participants. We have to have the coffee hot and donuts fresh at 7:30 in the morning, because they are getting ready to go through their trials for the nights line-up. I found this and tweaked it for 50 servings, substituted cooked, ground sausage for ham, nixed the bell pepper, bought flour tortillas,salsa and extra shredded cheese. We cook this overnight at home, bring the crockpot to the food booth and assemble to make breakfast burritos. We take a tortilla, a decent serving of the omelet, an extra sprinkle of cheese, wrap up individually in foil, and lay them in another crockpot that has a damp towel at the bottom. the damp towel keeps everything steamy hot. as they are bought, they put their own salsa on. We made them in 25 serving batches.(Two smaller crockpots) word spread quickly we had something better than donuts. we have sold out every year after the 1st year (once they found out) we also found the second morning (after the first nights show, afterwards they went into town for the dance and drank alot) we sold out faster on the second morning than the first morning. so we didn't make as much the first morning, and had more for the second morning. it is not labor intensive, and we 3 volunteers get together the night before the rodeo



Love the versatility of this recipe! Have made this recipe several times at the request of my co-workers. I have tweaked it each time depending on what type of group I was serving. Have used browned italian sausage (mild to spicy), pre-cubed ham and even bacon. For ease, frozen chopped onions/green peppers and for color, yellow/red peppers. Used shredded mexi-cheese for a spicier taste or four-cheese blends for a mild one. In the eggs, I added dry mixed italian seasonings, chopped garlic and a dash of dijon mustard. Cooked just fine at about 11 hours on low. For sides, I have served it with hot sauce, fresh salsa or pico de gallo, sour cream and more shredded cheese so people could season it more if they liked. Haven't had a complaint on it yet :)



The first time I made this exactly according to the recipe and took it to a meeting. It was well liked but had quite a bit leftover. I'm not a big fan of ham so this time I made it with sage sausage and red bell pepper instead of green. I also added 1/4 tsp of ground mustard and used a fresh potato instead of frozen. Since the starch turns brown, had to rinse it. I should have rolled it in a paper towel to absorb the extra moisture. That was the only issue I ran into using a fresh potato - the extra moisture. I took it to my meeting and it disappeared.
