AFC BREAKFAST WIENER ROLL for Steph

“Hi Aunt Sharon! Hope all is well! I just made your Energizer Breakfast Burrito and it was delicious!!! I’ve been having cereal before work, but I’m hungry an hour later, plus it’s so bland. If you come up with anything as simple as and similar to the burrito send them my way :)”

Nothing I like better than a special request and the challenge of exceeding expectations! Now this combination…everyone’s going to think, what the—-?? So did I during the thought exploration process. But it worked and worked great! Hope you like it Steph. XO

AFC BREAKFAST WIENER ROLL 2

AFC BREAKFAST WIENER ROLL

Yes, the wieners are dates! Perfect fit – who would think? And raw sauerkraut – any flavor will do, but the raw? – I like what it does to me insides. Feels good, tastes delicious. Use any mustard you like, I went with ball park, because I wanted to hit this one into the next city! Try the Jif Almond Butter, readily available in most markets. Super smooth! A tiny drizzle of maple syrup makes you want to kiss the tree that bled it for what it does to this breakfast roll up!!
