Recently, while meal prepping for a postpartum mama, my mom had a genius idea for the breakfast burritos. And it worked! We're probably not the first to come up with this, but I plan on making them like this from here on out!

It's super simple and made me wonder why I've never thought to try this before. All you need is an egg casserole and some tortillas.

How to Make Mess-Free Breakfast Burritos

The secret to a mess-free burrito is using an egg casserole and cutting it into strips that fit perfectly in your tortilla. The casserole holds everything together and makes these easy to meal-prep.

Step 1: Make your egg casserole. Click here for a simple Sausage & Egg Casserole recipe

Step 2: Once baked and cooled, cut your casserole into pieces that can easily fit in the center of your tortillas. I find that cutting a 9x13 into 10 strips works great for 10" tortillas.

Step 3: Fold your tortilla and finish by warming it in a hot skillet on each side. This adds a toasty flavor and helps keep your burrito closed.

Now enjoy your burrito with NO MESS!

NOTES:

  • We enjoy ours served with sour cream or salsa (or both!)
  • This will work with any size tortilla.
  • Shake it up by trying different toppings in your egg casserole.
  • Make the casserole ahead of time and freeze or refrigerate it. Then simply warm it up and add a tortilla. If you don't mind eating it cold, you can also make the burritos ahead of time for road trips!

I hope this saves you as much time and mess as it has for me!

Your farmeress,

The Benefits of Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGDs) on a Pasture-Based Poultry Farm

Our livestock guardian dogs, also known as LGDs, consistently steal the show during farm events here at David's Pasture. In regenerative agriculture, where harmony between nature and farming practices is most important, livestock guardian dogs play an essential role, particularly when raising poultry. Not only do these hard-working canines protect our flocks, they also contribute significantly to wildlife conservation and the efficiency of our farm. Understanding the purpose and benefits of LGDs reveals why they are worth their weight in gold.

David's Pasture: The Story and Meaning Behind Our Name

When my parents, David & Kim Kesten, started this business in 2011, we had defaulted to the name Kesten Family Farm. While fitting, the name didn’t fully capture the vision that my dad had cast for our business. That summer, we spent several weeks brainstorming a new name that would better encompass the values of our business. One morning, at the age of 11, I woke up from a dream. I don’t remember the dream now, except that it involved glimpses throughout King David’s life. I woke up with the name “David’s Pasture” repeating in my head. Half asleep, I stumbled into the dining room where the rest of my family was already enjoying breakfast and asked, “how about David’s Pasture?” It didn’t take long for the rest of my family to agree that David's Pasture was the perfect name.

A Small Farmer's Perspective on the USDA's RFID Ear Tag Mandate

Hey guys, Remi here. 👨‍🌾 Today I want to share my perspective on the USDA's upcoming mandate for RFID ear tags to be used on cattle and bison moved across state lines. First let me state that I am not entirely against RFID Ear Tags, but I am against them being mandated by the government. In this post I will share some of the advantages of RFID technology, as well as the struggles this new requirement presents for ranchers and consumers alike.
