Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast burritos for busy bodies who are bored of bagels.

I like alliteration.

I also like breakfast. And I really love breakfast for dinner. And this meal is all of those things rolled into one. (Get it-rolled into one-like a burrito.)

Here's something else: if you are a vegetarian or considering becoming one or are just looking eat more meatless meals now and again than this is a great meal idea for you. It's delicious, very customizable, easy to make AND it packs quite a bit of protein.

I know when I first became a vegetarian (back in 2005) I didn't do a great job of replacing the missing protein in my meals. It can be a little daunting at first. But after a while I found lots of creative and yummy ways to incorporate beans and rice, eggs, peanut butter and other nuts into my diet. I also happen to be a fan of tofu (but mostly when I eat out). I am certainly not a nutritionist, but I have learned a lot over the years about being meatless and still healthy.

Aside from all the cake I eat. :)

For these breakfast burritos I roasted: 2 red bell peppers, 1 onion, 2 jalapeno (seeds removed) and 1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed).

I highly recommend roasting these ingredients sprinkled with a little olive oil and sea salt, in your oven on 400 F for 10-12 minutes as I feel roasted veggies have a super delicious flavor.

While those are roasting, scramble 6-8 eggs and then add in all those roasted veggies.

Now fill burrito sized tortillas with filling, plus sprinkle on some chopped cilantro and shredded cheese.

I squeezed in a little lemon juice too. But if you want to add in hot sauce or spicy salsa feel free! Then wrap these burritos in foil. I think this makes them easier to eat, but also if you are headed off to work or school it will keep your burrito warmer for a while.

This makes 5-6 burritos.

I do not recommend trying to drive and eat a breakfast burrito. We've all been there. Just don't. It's a mess (not to mention probably a bit dangerous).

Viva la BREAKFAST!!!!!

I LOVE breakfast for dinner. My boyfriend always makes fun of me because I’ll suggest scrambled tofu + sausage or waffles + hashbrowns for dinner at least once per week.
But, I must admit – although tofu is a sufficient egg replacer, I really miss the consistency of eggs.

Looks yum-o.. I decided to become a vegetarian this week… I’m on day 4. I highly doubt I’ll make it another week without All I’ve been eating is falafel and gardenburgers. It’s getting old.. Maybe I just need some new recipes?? If this vegetarian thing fails,I’m still definitely attempting to downsize the meat consumption for sure…
Thanks for the recipe!

Is it socially acceptable to eat burritos for every meal? I think by posting this, you’re saying that it is. I will take that as Word.

Jen March 10, 2011 at 10:02 pm

YUM! I am SO making this!! thanks Emma :)

that looks yummy. i’m pretty sure nothing is more awesome to wake up to than a big breakfast burrito and cup of coffee.

You can also make a bunch of burritos to freeze, they are so delicious! I recommend beans and rice (brown rice + beans = complete protein) because when you microwave the egg burritos they puff up real big and then are a little watery. Probably you aren’t supposed to freeze and then microwave scrambled eggs or something. *shrug*

Wow, these look great! I’m looking for ways to eat more meatless meals, and I definitely plan to try this. Also, awesome alliteration. :)

These look awesome! I’m a huge fan of interesting breakfast sandwiches- especially now that I have a panini maker!
