AMISH BREAKFAST BURRITOS: These are a surprisingly common, simple and delicious breakfast in Amish homes. Great for busy mornings. Amish cooks that have freezers (gas freezers are increasingly common) will often make these ahead of time, wrap them in foil and freeze them to dole out on particularly busy mornings.
