Using Leftover Braised Fennel and Potatoes

8 04 2010

My boys love to get breakfast burritos from a little roadside stand here in Denver called Big Mama’s Burritos. These burritos are filled with potatoes, cheese and eggs and their secret vegetarian chili sauce. Looking at my leftover Braised Fennel and Potatoes, I had the great idea that they would make a delicious filling for breakfast burritos. I tried it last night by sauteing my leftover potato mixture in a pan until heated through and then adding 2 beaten eggs. I continue to stir until the eggs were cooked through and nicely blended with the potatoes. Then I added in some shredded cheese and poured on some nice chili sauce. I actually bought a small cup of Big Mama’s chili sauce, but you could use any homemade or store bought sauce or salsa. I heated up tortillas and filled them with the potato, egg and cheese mixture. What an easy way to recreate leftovers into a whole new dish!
