How to Make Breakfast Burritos
Breakfast Burritos have quickly become a morning time staple for many, but cutting back on dinning out may limit how many McDonald’s Sausage Burritos, McSkillet Burritos with sausage, or a Cheesy Bacon Burger King Wrapper® a person can consume during a month. Here is a quick and simple breakfast burrito. The cost is relatively low (less than $0.50 per burrito) and it only takes about 15 minutes to prepare.
Step 1: Crack 1 egg per burrito into a small mixing bowl.
Step 2: Add a small amount of milk (1 tsp per egg) and whip with a fork.
NOTE: You will use less milk when scrambling eggs for a burrito than for an egg sandwich or for plain scrambled eggs. This will make the eggs more firm and will create less “drip” mess when eating.
Step 3: Melt a 1 tablespoon of butter in a hot skillet coating the bottom of the skillet.
NOTE: To reduce fat and calories you can use Pam Butter flavored cooking spray to coat the skillet.
Step 4: Pour the eggs in the skillet and scramble using a spatula.
Step 5: Add in precooked bacon, sausage, or ham to the eggs.
NOTE: You can also finely chop red or green peppers and onions to add to the burrito. Sauté the vegetables lightly with the meat before adding to the eggs.
Step 6: Scramble the eggs with the meat (and vegetables).
Step 7: Heat your flour tortilla in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
NOTE: Follow heating instructions for the tortilla or simply place the tortilla on a microwaveable safe plate, cover with a damp paper towel, and microwave for 30 seconds or until hot. Don’t over microwave the tortilla or it will become hard and crunchy.
Step 8: Sprinkle 1/3 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese on the hot tortilla shell.
Step 9: Place about 1/2 cup of filling on a small tortilla, or 3/4 to 1 cup on a large burrito sized tortilla covering the cheese.
NOTE: Keep the cheese and the filling in a line down the middle of the tortilla to allow for easy folding.
Step 10: Add black ground pepper to taste.
Step 11: Fold the burrito closed starting with the bottom flap, then left and right sides.
Enjoy! This is a simple and delicious way to enjoy a breakfast burrito without dinning out. The ingredients can be prepared the night before and reheated in the morning to make the process quicker for those people who need to get out the door fast.
