Breakfast Burritos with Tomato-Basil Topping Recipe

I hope to post some recipes that I've enjoyed throughout my journey to teach myself how to cook healthy and socially/environmentally sustainable foods. Here's the first one. It's a pretty easy and good breakfast recipe.

2 teaspoons butter or margarine
1 russet potato, peeled and grated
1/4 cup chopped peeled onion
6 large eggs
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese, shredded
1 large tomato, diced
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried basil

1. In large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt butter and sauté potato and onion until tender.
2. Pour in egg, sprinkle with pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until mixture is set. Divide egg mixture evenly between tortillas; top with cheese. Fold tortillas over egg mixture. Top with tomato mixed with basil.

Makes 4 servings

I used fresh basil and it was a delicious and easy salsa. I also combined the cheese with the eggs and put the tomato/basil sauce on the burrito toppings before folding the tortilla. Also, if you like heat, add some hot peppers to the onions and potatoes.
