Jen’s Breakfast Burritos!
This is a staple in our house.. I make a batch of these every week to have for Kris to take to work, and for me to have as a quick snack.. and they’re SO easy an versatile! Makes 8
Step 1: Chop up 8 slices of center-cut bacon, and saute in a pan on medium-high heat until crisp. Don’t drain the fat unless there’s a lot, because you’ll need it for the greens. Add 4 cups of greens (i.e. kale or spinach) and saute until wilted.
Step 2: Scramble together 8 eggs, season with salt and pepper. Pour over bacon/greens mixture.
Step 3: Cook eggs like a scramble - mix them around until cooked through.
Step 4: Place a tortilla on a piece of saran wrap of about the same size as the tortilla. Add an 1/8 of the egg scramble mixture to the center of the tortilla, and top with a sprinkle of cheese.
Step 5: Fold in the ‘short’ ends of the tortilla, hold them, and roll up the rest of the tortilla so the egg mixture is neatly held inside!
Step 6: Wrap the burrito up in saran wrap.
These will keep in the fridge for a week, and freeze well if you want to make more. Out of the fridge, microwave it for a minute and enjoy!
You can do a ton with these - Replace the bacon with crumbled chicken sausage, veggie crumbles, or turkey bacon. Replace the eggs with all egg whites. Use whole wheat tortillas (I use white-whole wheat ones because they roll up without tearing). Use reduced-fat or vegan cheese substitute. The process is always the same, but you may need to add some oil or broth in step 1 if the meat you use doesn’t produce fat.
I’ve calculated it in the past, and the way I make them they’re about 200-250 calories each depending on the exact tortillas and cheese. SO DELICIOUS!
