Breakfast Burrito


Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, these are tasty and filling.  Super fast, and easy, I’ve been a little bit addicted to them…and they’re so healthy I don’t feel guilty for eating two!  I like to use one egg yolk (good fats, vitamins, and minerals!) to help me feel full, then two egg whites to get the protein I need.  This would make an excellent post-run meal!

2 whole wheat tortillas

2 egg whites

1 egg yolk

Cholula hot sauce (as much as you like…I sprinkle liberally!)

2 green onions, chopped rough (I used just the green tops and discarded the whites)

1 Roma tomato, chopped rough

1/4 c. shredded cheese (I used fiesta-blend pre-shredded)

You could also add things like artichokes, spinach, and chopped ham!

1.  In a medium-high hot skillet fry up the eggs and green onions to almost fully cooked – about 4 minutes.

2.  Add tomatoes and cheese, tossing just till cheese is melted, about 1 minute.

3.  Remove egg mixture to two whole wheat tortillas, fold in the two sides and place back in the hot pan, seam side down.  Press lightly with the back of a spatula.  Cook for about 4 minutes then flip to the other side, pressing lightly again.  Both sides will brown up and the cheese will be hot and melty with a crispy tortilla outside!
