Breakfast Burrito–vegetarian and oh so good!

by Melanie on January 31, 2011

Oh this was seriously so mouthwatering D E L I C I O U S that I could not wait to share it with you! I loved it so much that I actually made it twice last weekend. My little boys spent lots of time sitting at the bar “helping” me create these gems. In fact my 3 year old who loves to see what is going on in the kitchen at all times, has a problem with not paying attention and he somehow manages to fall off the stools daily–more than once this weekend–ouch! I think I need some of these adjustable bar stools that can sandwich his little legs snugly against the counter top so that he can’t possibly flop to the floor no matter how animated his antics are. Luckily there were only a few tears and no real damage done–but we sure did enjoy these creations. And by the way–no my little boys did not want all of the veggies pictured in their burritos. Their burritos were a little plainer, but I LOVED it and hopefully my veggie eating example will rub off! They did have fun helping me whisk and chop everything though!
These were fantastic and I think they would make a wonderful week night meal or Saturday breakfast picnic. Yum!

Breakfast Burritos
submitted by Melanie inspired by Sprouted Kitchen

1-2 cups grape tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 small sweet onion, diced
1 tsp olive oil

4 large whole wheat tortillas (pictures are small ones and the goodness kept falling out–so go for the big size!!)
8 eggs
2-3 Tb milk
salt/pepper/red pepper flakes

grated pepper jack cheese/cheddar cheese
baby spinach leaves
fresh avocado slices

Start out with tossing the tomatoes and onion in olive oil and sprinkling with salt and pepper. Roast in a 400 oven for 15 minutes. There is something amazing about roasting tomatoes. I think the flavor is wonderful with the caramelized onions.

While these are cooking start you scrambles eggs. Crack all the eggs in a bowl, add your seasoning and milk and whisk until well combined. pour into a saucepan and cook slowly at medium heat. Eggs cooked slowly have a wonderful texture and remember you have time with 15 minutes before your tomatoes are done! When the eggs are almost finished cooking remove from heat and they will finish cooking while you get the tortillas ready.

Heat the tortillas in a fry pan on the stove with a teeny tiny bit of butter, for just a few moments on each side. Then put the warm and toasted tortilla on a plate and put the desired amount of cheese down the middle. Spoon on some of your scrambled eggs, roasted tomatoes and onion, spinach and top with slices of avocado. Fold in the ends and roll up burrito style. Enjoy!!

We love making breakfast burritos. I also love to throw in some sauteed mushrooms. Thanks for sharing and reminding I need to make these!

Mmmm… those look fantastic, Mel! I usually end up putting mushrooms in mine, too, like Dacia. I wish I could eat this right now instead of the bowl of cereal I just ate for breakfast! :)

First of all I love your website and have gotten a million of our "favorites" from you guys. And I will probably have to add this on in! We've already made them twice! The roasted vegetables were a genius idea!

Thanks so much for your blog!

I’m Dutch so we don’t usually have breakfast or lunch with anything more then plain sandwiches. But I tried this recipe yesterday for the easter lunch. People, and me included, thought this seriously delicious! I will absolutely make this again!
