I’m a big fan of breakfast.
Breakfast foods, eating in the morning, eggs and bacon, I love it all.
I’m definitely a morning protein girl – none of this sugary stuff that most people gravitate towards. But…I also know that mornings can get busy, so I’m all about having something ready to pop in the microwave before work that doesn’t cost me 8073450873 calories or hours of time.
Enter the humble breakfast burrito.
Typically, I make a batch for the whole week on Sunday morning, tightly wrapping them in foil so they are ready to go all the way through Friday. A couple of burritos, a mid-morning piece of fruit and I’m good to go. Plus, the version I make only comes to 410 calories for two burritos. Yum!
Breakfast Burritos – Makes 10 burritos (two a day for the week)
- 10 eggs, scrambled
- 1 package of Jimmy Dean turkey sausage crumbles
- Fajita size Mission tortillas (but use your fave brand, if you like)
- 5 slices of Kraft 2% American Deli Deluxe (or your fave brand, if you like)
- Your favorite add-ins – could be onions, green peppers, etc
Scramble up your mess of eggs – while they cook, lay out your tortillas and put half a slice of cheese and a handful (okay, a quarter of a cup) of sausage crumbles onto each one, as well as your add-ins. Once the eggs are done, evenly distribute onto each tortilla, then wrap each one tightly in foil.
To serve, simply pop two burritos in the microwave for about a minute, eat and enjoy!
