Rise and shine and lets get breakfast on the table!

Breakfast couldn’t get any easier or tastier than this if you ask me.

Really, this one will be on your table in minutes and  you will be thanking me. (Well my family sure did) and I will graciously accept cookies or any other sugary treat.

I love hearty breakfasts that are uncomplicated.

This sure delivers.

I just love hot and cheesy refried beans and well top it with some tomatoes, scallions and cilantro and you have just got my taste buds jumping!

Now add some BACON on top and well, it’s crunchy, cheese, and um….DE-licious!

  1. Holy moly! I was proud of my biscuits for breakfast but I’m pretty sure I’m going to need to head back to the kitchen and make this happen.

  2. Honestly, I have been craving refried beans…they are never in my pantry ut for some reason I wanted some. Guess what’s for dinner….

    1. I typically make it in a 12″ like photographed here, I have also made it in a 10″.

  3. We made this tonight in a 12 in skillet. So good! Definitely on our dinner rotation. I also added some Spanish rice on top of the beans.

    1. This can easily serve 3-4 people, add an additional egg if serving 4 for each serving to have an egg.
