No time? Re-interpret!
I've raved about, and repeatedly made what I dubbed 'breakfast pockets' in a couple variations. The original sausage is great, I've tried cheeseburger (with some ketchup and pickles for 'authenticity'), chicken with bbq sauce... but my favorite has always been spinach and bacon.

I always try to keep some in my freezer for 'on the go' meals, and I ran out a couple days ago Time has definitely been at a premium lately... Today there was no way I had the time to allow the dough to rise – but I DID have some whole wheat tortillas... A new 'method' to the same great end was born!

So I fry about two-thirds pound of bacon, remove to drain, and then saute a 10 oz package of chopped spinach (thawed and squeezed dry). Seasonings next – s&p, nutmeg, smoked paprika, and my new favorite, lemon garlic salt (really brightens and heightens the flavor of the spinach)! Next go the potatoes (about a cup and a half, diced)– I chopped my own instead of using the frozen recommended – if you use this method, you will want to par-boil or nuke them before adding, as the cook time is nothing at all. Six or seven eggs whisked together with some milk or cream (and a dash of hot sauce, if you like)...

Stir until eggs are ALMOST set, sprinkle with cheese (I used Monterrey Jack this time), and set aside until cheese melts. Scoop onto tortillas and fold/roll.

This made TEN delicious burritos – bake for about 15 minutes, and then if you freeze like I do, microwave for about two minutes to thaw and reheat before serving. Having made these so many times, I no longer refer to the original recipe, but my hat's off with much gratitude to the Budget Gourmet Mom who got me started.
