Breakfast Burrito


I never skip breakfast. Eating a good breakfast not just makes me feel great, but it helps me to stay on track throughout the day. Despite all it's great benefits, I often rank breakfast as my least favorite meal of the day. So the reason for that? Thinking in the box.

Even though I have perfected the art of making perfectly fluffy scrambled eggs, thanks to Pinterest, I have found a new way to eat eggs. Say hello to my new favorite breakfast, the breakfast burrito. I first made it a few weeks ago when we had some leftover pernil (Puerto Rican pork roast), and in meal planning for the Whole 30, it's the perfect breakfast. The typical flour tortilla is replaced with an egg omelette (or crepe), and filled with meat, veggies, guacamole, whatever! Totally easy and so good.

Breakfast Burrito
(Printable recipe HERE)
2 eggs
cooking oil (olive, ghee,etc.)
1/2 an avocado
1 tomato
Veggies as desired
Meat as desired (Leftovers work perfectly for this!)
salt and pepper to taste

I like to prep all the filling first, this way the omelette doesn't get too cold or soggy.

I love using leftover meat for this dish and used leftover steak from a previous dinner for this particular burrito. If using leftover meat from a previous dinner or lunch, warm it up in the toaster oven or microwave and set aside. If using fresh meat, prepare it with your favorite seasonings ,and set aside.

Next, beat your eggs, and again, set aside.

Now for the guacamole and "salsa." For the guacamole mix together half a chopped tomato, half an avocado, some salt and pepper, and a squeeze of lime. Then I chop the other half of the tomato and call it salsa/garnish.
If using other veggies, have them ready to roll. Literally.

Now for the omelette. Warm your skillet and add in the cooking oil of your choice, about 1-2 tablespoons. Pour in your beaten eggs and make sure the eggs go all the way to the edges of the pan. Let cook a few minutes, flip, and let it cook on the other side, about a minute more. 

Place your omelette on a plate and add your filling. Roll it up, top with salsa, and enjoy!
Frank's Hot Sauce optional. 


  1. Omg, YUM! I wish I had time to make something like this for breakfast every day. Now I'm craving guac!

    1. Guac is as essential as air in my book!

  2. This looks delicious! I try SO hard to like avocados/guac, but I'm not sure if my tastebuds will ever cooperate :( I'll have to try this one sans avocados. Sounds like the Whole 30 is going great & you're finding some delicious meals to make!

    1. My friend is allergic to avocados, so I told him to make it without! Just add more of your favorite veggies or salsa!

      And it is! I don't feel like im on a "plan" anymore, just eating as I would day to day.

  3. YUM this is making me so hungry!!! Breakfast Burritos are literally in my top 5 fav foods!

    1. Ditto! I could (and probably would) eat it everyday!

  4. I'm totally a breakfast skipper too, but I do love a good omelet or fried egg sandwich. I think avo would be great to have in an omelet. but what do you do with the other half?

    1. Keep the seed in the other half and put a little lemon juice on the avocado (to prevent browning) and save it for later!

  5. Ive been doing the "17 day diet" plan which is another clean eating high protein plan for like 6 monts now! it's so easy and i find the hardest part is keeping enough proteins ready in my house to eat. What are your favorites? Suggestions?
