Ingredients

  • 16 slices bacon
  • 16 ounces package frozen hash browns
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup half and half
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • Hot sauce for serving

Instructions

Cook the Bacon:

  1. Place a large, cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Once hot add the bacon slices and cook until crispy, working in batches, about 8 minutes per batch.
  2. Place cooked bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate, to drain off excess fat.
  3. Discard most bacon fat from the skillet, leaving in only about 2 tablespoons.

Cook the Hash Browns:

  1. Cook the hash browns according to package directions in the skillet in the bacon fat and transfer to a plate when done.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and half and half until combined.

Cook the Eggs:

  1. Wipeout the same cast-iron skillet, place it over medium heat and melt the butter.
  2. When butter is just starting to foam, add the beaten eggs and reduce heat to medium-low.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, stir the egg mixture occasionally until soft curds form. Season with paprika, and salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble the Burritos:

  1. Arrange tortillas on a flat surface.
  2. In the center of each one, layer hash browns, ¼ of the scrambled eggs, ¼ cup each cheese, and 4 slices of bacon per burrito.
  3. Fold in the two shorter/extremity sides, and after that roll up tightly.
  4. Serve with hot sauce for dipping.
