¡Hola Breakfast Burrito!

My entire family is obsessed with breakfast burritos.  It was one big accident really.  One night I was planning on making fajitas for dinner and changed my mind.  The next morning I had an unopened pack of soft tortillas and I wanted to jazz up our breakfast.

Scrambled eggs, a slice of good quality cheese, a dash of freshly ground pepper (no salt as cheese is salty) and voila! A breakfast burrito.  I grill it on a sandwich press for a while until the cheese melts and the grill marks show.  Trust me - you want to eat it warm.

And if you're out of dinner ideas then the breakfast burrito can easily become a dinner burrito.

In short, this really is a perfect meal.  Nutritious, delicious, and made in 4 minutes flat.

The brand I use is Old El Paso and you can find it in most grocery stores.  I recently found a wholewheat version and believe it or not it did not taste like cardboard!  If your supermarket is out, then check out the freezer section as they often have local frozen brands - smaller in size but quite delicious.

You can really go creative with this meal and fillings can be based on the contents of your refrigerator. These are some popular fillings in my household: turkey, japaleno colby cheese and a drizzle of mustard; sharp cheddar cheese and tomatoes; or provolone with olives.

Bon Appetit!
