Simple Breakfast to Go

I wanted my son to have something hot to eat for breakfast, even though he is leaving early and always in a hurry. So, his breakfast has to be easy and fast to make and easy for him to grab and eat on the way.

So this is what I came up with. A scrambled egg burrito. It only takes a couple of minutes to make and the clean up is minimal.

I use a small non-stick frying pan with just a little oil and two eggs.

I lay a flour tortilla on top of a square of aluminum foil. Then I put the scrambled egg on the tortilla and sprinkle on some cheese.

Fold the tortilla and hold it with a toothpick.

Finish by folding the aluminum foil around the burrito.

Add a cup of orange juice or milk and you've got a decent breakfast for a guy in a hurry! Much better than starting a 12 hour work day on an empty stomach.

I could add things like salsa, onions, peppers, etc., but that would defeat the purpose of making something simple and fast. The non-stick frying pan makes clean up easy and fast too.

Yummy! What a good mother you are! I LOVE the breakfast burrito from McDonald's... can't believe I've never made them at home.

I just found your blog, and I'm loving it! Here's my tip for your burritos--chop your onion, pepper, mushrooms or whatever you may want for your burritos into small pieces and store them in your freezer in a zip bag or resealable container. Then when you are starting to make your burrito, put a few bits in the pan. They don't really need to cook just thaw a bit, add your eggs and you've just added a veg serving to the day.

Wonderful idea, Debbie.

Might even be good for us who have extra time! Sounds very good.

Love you,
