Homemade Breakfast Burritos

Play around with the ingredients in your breakfast burrito and feel free to experiment. I like to cook my eggs in olive oil because of the added flavor.

Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 yellow onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, seeds removed, chopped
    1 russet potato, finely diced
    1/2 teaspoon salt, plus a dash
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    2 eggs
    2 whole-wheat tortillas
    6 tablespoons grated Cheddar cheese
    Hot sauce

Directions

  1. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a cast-iron pan or a heavy sauté pan over medium heat.
  2. Add onion, green pepper, and potato to the pan and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper.
  3. Let this mixture cook down, stirring occasionally until all of the vegetables are soft and begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  4. In another pan, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.
  5. Crack the eggs into the pan, sprinkle with a dash of salt, and scramble until cooked but still soft.
  6. Sprinkle each tortilla with grated cheese and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds.
  7. Top each tortilla with cooked vegetables and half of the eggs. Top with hot sauce.
  8. Fold into a burrito by folding the bottom two inches of the tortilla up first, then closing the sides.

Serves two.
