Egg and cheese burritos

Egg and cheese burritos. A simple, filling, healthy breakfast. If only I had extra time in the morning to make this more often! I am not a morning person-- but I'm also not a night owl. Ironically, though, I really don't like to sleep in too late. I hate losing some of  my day!  Since I'm not a morning person, I seem to be rushing around every morning trying to get Kaydin and I out the door on time.  Scrambling eggs just so not make on the the agenda for a weekday morning.   A couple weeks ago, though, I found a solution to that.  One evening for supper I was craving a breakfast burrito. And since I was chopping veggies and dirtying a skillet anyway, I decided to triple the amount and have some leftovers for easy meals later in the week!

Start by chopping up some vegetables. This is where you can be creative and customize it to your liking. I had onion, mushrooms and green peppers on hand so that's what I used. The amount is up to you, also. I like egg dishes that are heavy on the veggies so I chopped up a bunch. 
Heat a small amount of olive oil in a pan, about 1-2 tablespoons, over medium heat.  Then, throw in your mound of chopped vegetables.  Let these saute away until slightly cooked, about 5-6 minutes.
When I make scrambled eggs, I like to add hot sauce. It doesn't make it hot, just gives it a good flavor.  Whisk these up with a small amount of milk and pour over the veggies on the stovetop. Cook the egg and veggie mixture just like you would your regular scrambled eggs, stirring occasionally.

Heat your whole wheat tortilla in the microwave about 20 seconds, just enough to warm it and add a small portion of your eggs on top. Finish your burrito by adding shredded cheese and salsa. Wrap it up and enjoy! My five eggs lasted me three meals, that night, the next day for lunch and breakfast the day after that! Easy peasy!

  1. This is pretty similar to the eggs I made for breakfast this morning... except I skipped the hot sauce. What was I thinking?!?!
