|Bacon makes every morning special|
I also decided that in order to give the duck eggs their due, I wasn't going to scramble them in the traditional sense. I usually drop the eggs in a bowl, throw in some salt & pepper and milk or cream, and whisk them until combined. Yet with the duck eggs, I wanted some more texture to come through of the individual parts of the egg. So, when it came time to throw them into the pan, I did it one by and used a fork to quickly break them apart as they began cooking. It makes for a denser scrambled egg that is a bit "broken" in that you get parts of just whites and parts of just yolks. I loved it!

This is literally just something I threw together on the spot. I happened to have some flour tortilla shells available - and you can substitute anything you like into the scramble. So my recipe is simply a guideline or suggestion!
6 slices bacon
12 small links breakfast sausage, cut up into bite-sized pieces
2 tablespoons butter
6 duck eggs (scrambled, or done as suggested above)
Salt & pepper
1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Parmigiana Reggiano Cheese, grated
4 large flour tortillas
Fry the bacon and place on a paper towel to drain. In a pan, begin heating up the cut-up sausage in a little olive oil. Once they are cooked through, add the butter and let it melt. Stir in the eggs (or scramble them in one by one) and add a pinch of salt and some pepper. As it begins to cook, stir in 3/4 cup cheddar cheese and all of the parmigiana.
Over medium-low heat, allow the eggs to cook through, stirring occasionally. When the eggs are just firm but still a bit wet and everything is combined, crumble in 4 slices of cooked bacon and remove from heat. Lay the tortilla shells out flat, and spoon equal amounts of the egg mixture onto each shell. Roll them up like a burrito and place on a cookie sheet. Evenly distribute the rest of the cheddar cheese over the top of each, and place them under the broiler for 3-5 minutes until the cheese melts. Crumble the remaining bacon and crumble over top. Add a dollop of sour cream over each burrito and enjoy. A dollop of a fresh salsa might be nice as well.
