This week my family and I have been vacationing on the Washington Coast, experiencing the last few days of summer break before the kids start school on Monday. Together as a family, we experienced camping for the first time in a rental RV. Boy, what an adventure it has been! What started out as a chaotic first day just trying to get out of town turned out to be a very enjoyable stay once we settled in at Cape Disappointment State Park. We’re headed back home today.

With the crisp, cold ocean air infused with the comforting scent of burning camp fires all around us, the weather is definitely transitioning into a Northwest type of fall. Being the one in charge of food, I’ve enjoyed cooking in the small kitchen, especially preparing a warm breakfast dish each morning.

The first morning of our RV adventure, I made our family easy breakfast burritos which can be done in fifteen minutes. What I like about this recipe is how easily it can be adapted to your individual taste. If you prefer a vegetarian version, omit the chicken sausage and add more vegetables. Sensitive to dairy? Leave the cheese out. Gluten allergy? Use a corn tortilla instead. Use what works best for you.

If you’re in too big of a hurry on weekday mornings, then save this recipe for the weekend. Served with jarred salsa, this recipe is a great one to add to your family’s repertoire.
