Breakfast Burritos

After the success I had with the baked steak burritos, I thought that the burrito possibilities were endless. In a state of panic the other night when it seemed like there was no food in the house, I was able to pull off what looked like a pretty sufficient dinner -- all thanks to some great presentation.

You can really do anything you want with these burritos (which is what makes them so amazing), but I stuck with the classics: bacon, eggs, tomatoes, onions, cheese. This was a breakfast of champions and would be good to make in the morning for active kids walking out the door. 


  • 4 large flour tortillas, warmed
  • 6 eggs
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • salsa and/or sour cream to serve
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • In one frying pan, cook the bacon
  • In another frying pan, cook the eggs, scrambled
  • Open up the four tortillas and spread out over the counter
  • In each, in a line down the middle, place two slices of bacon, a couple of spoonfuls of egg, some tomatoes, some green onions and some cheese
  • Fold the burrito by folding the long side in, tucking in the short ends and rolling over
  • Lay seam side down on a baking sheet (don't be shy to use toothpicks to keep them closed)
  • Serve with salsa and/or sour cream, or wrap in tin foil for easy portability

  1. I love your burrito recipe, Suzyhomemaker: it reminds me of my years in Guadalajara and the endless number of crosswords I enjoyed solving. Say, wouldn't a crossword be a great addition to your blog? Maybe a food-based puzzle or a cryptic with clues such as "Mexican food for a small donkey" (6)

    Keep up the interesting blog -- and think about the crossword addition as a novel initiative.
