    We used the purple potatoes with the cage-free eggs and pork sausage and onion to make breakfast burritos. Quick easy, and with the CM southwestern tortillas delicious!

    I just made this! I added one of the onions that came in my bin, I tossed it in about 5 minutes before it was done. This is my first bin and I am so excited about trying new vegetables!
