Breakfast Burrito

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 hot pan, seam side down.  Press lightly with the back of spatula.  Cook for about 4 minutes then flip to other side, pressing lightly again.  Both sides will brown up and the cheese will be hot and melty with a crispy tortilla outside!
