Southwestern Breakfast Pockets

There is nothing like having a great breakfast to get everyone going for the day. We are halfway through July, but I’m already thinking of back-to-school with this one.

My little guy loves breakfast food as much as I do. But unlike me, he doesn’t like things to go on repeat like I do. So with that in mind, I’m working on adding a few new items to the rotation.

This is the latest one. It’s full of flavor and so easy to make. In fact you can make the filling the night before and assemble it in the morning.
