Glad you’re back for chapter two of Green Eats! Breakfast is the name of the game this week. Although I absolutely love breakfast, I do not get to enjoy it as often as I would like, being that I only eat lunch and dinner.
Authentic Mexican breakfasts are among the best food you will ever have. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying, or has never had an authentic Mexican breakfast. Today, we will make the fabled breakfast burrito. Mind you, this will not be authentic, and it won’t be Mexican, but I’ll be damned if it’s not delicious.
What you will need(makes 2 burritos):
- 2 large flour tortillas
- 3 or 4 eggs
- 1 red and 1 green bell pepper
- 1 yellow onion
- at least 4 strips of thick cut bacon
- approx. 2 cups of your favorite cheese
- approx 5 oz of has browns (shredded or cubed)
- salt & pepper to taste
- your favorite hot sauce
- Optional: seasoned sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo
- Fresh fruit will bridge the burrito with this weeks pairing!
Start off by frying the bacon in a large skillet. While the bacon is frying, whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl, and chop the peppers and onions. set the bacon on a plate topped with paper towels to cool, and drain 90% of the bacon grease out of the pan.
With the remaining bacon grease, fry the hash browns, peppers and onion(you will likely only need to use about half of the peppers and onions, depending on size). While frying the onions and peppers, mix salt & pepper into the eggs, and chop the bacon into sizes no larger than a quarter.
Once the onions and peppers are finished, set them on the same plate as the bacon, and toss them together. Now, you may need to clean the pan at this point/ use a new one or your eggs will have a bunch of burnt shit in them. Once you have a clean pan, melt a tablespoon or so of butter, and dump the eggs in, followed by the cheese, and continue scraping the pan on medium heat until they are slightly underdone(they will cook a bit when you remove them from the pan). Place the cheesy eggs on the plate with the chopped bacon & fixings.
Put about a half tablespoon of butter on the pan(on medium- low heat), followed by the tortilla. Take about half of the bacon-eggs/fixings mixture and place it on the tortilla while it heats up. After about 4 minutes, your tortilla should be a light golden color and ready to be rolled(If you can’t roll it, fold it). Throw it on a plate, topped with some extra cheese, and a scoop of guac, pico, and seasoned sour cream!
For our pairing this week, we will be looking for a strain that couples with breakfast, namely a strain that will help you crush the rest of the day! Look no further than Laughing Buddha, an award winning sativa(2003 Cannabis Cup). C’mon, even the name should get you on this one, just imagine one of those little Buddha figurines, and it’s likely how you’ll feel after consumption of this strain.
“Sweet, tropical yet citric and spicy with black pepper tones, Laughing Buddha has a very sociable, uplifting mood. This sativa strain is ideal for daytime smoking; especially during social interaction, having fun with friends or partying. Not for insomnia.”
It should be noted that several other reviews mention this is not a strain for beginners, so tread carefully. As always, we look forward to seeing you back next week; until then, stay thirsty.
