Lady Lynne and I like to go to the gym first thing on most Saturday mornings. I do my 10k run and she does her fitness classes.

As you can imagine, when we both return home together we’re ravenous!

Fortunately I’m a planner so before we’ve left for the gym I’ve chopped and prepared all of the vegetables, cracked the eggs and grated the cheese. This means that on our return it’s just a simple case of cooking and then rolling these healthy breakfast burritos and that literally just takes 10 – 15 minutes max.

When we were in Las Vegas in 2014 I had the most AMAZING breakfast burritos made with ground beef, eggs and cheese. I decided to make my own vegetarian breakfast burritos here in this recipe, but maybe I’ll do a meat version one day, I’m thinking maybe with chorizo sausage. What do you think?

Anyway, here’s just a few reasons why I think you’ll love these healthy breakfast burritos! 🙂

Why You’ll Love These Healthy Breakfast Burritos

  • You can just about use anything to make your burritos. Why not try using black beans, avocado, sausage and /or chopped sweet potato?
  • Why not double up the amount of burritos you make and take the one’s you don’t eat as a packed lunch to save money instead of eating out?
  • Burritos are also perfect for freezing. Just wrap them tightly in grease proof paper and freeze. When you want to eat them move them from the freezer to the fridge first of all then once thawed just pop them into the microwave to re-heat.

Ingredients
  • Spray oil
  • Red pepper chopped
  • Small onion chopped
  • 100 g button mushrooms sliced
  • 50 g chopped green jalapenos from a jar
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp mild chilli powder
  • 60 g low fat grated cheese
  • 2 large corn tortillas
Instructions
  1. Spray a large pan with the cooking oil spray and place the pan over a medium heat.
  2. Add the chopped pepper and cook for about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and cook for another 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in the sliced button mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes then stir in the jalapenos for a further minute.
  5. Whilst the vegetables are cooking mix the eggs in a bowl with the seasoning and chilli powder.
  6. When the vegetables are cooked add the egg mixture to the pan and cook over a low heat stirring every now and then to scramble them and cook them. This should only take 2 minutes.
  7. Remove the pan from the heat.
  8. Lay the tortillas out and divide the filling between them making sure you keep the filling in the centre and then sprinkle the grated cheese on top.
  9. Pull the bottom half of the burrito over to meet the top half. Then, pull the tortilla back. This will form the filling into a roll. Next, fold one side in and then the other side.
  10. With both ends folded, tightly roll your tortilla until you have a perfect, beautiful burrito. Cut in half and serve hot.

Talking of the weekend folks, this weekend is a very special family occasion. It’s the 50th wedding anniversary of my parents and all of the family will be heading off, staying the weekend and celebrating that together at Crieff Hydro. So, to allow myself and Lady Lynne to recover there will be no recipe next Tuesday.

I’ll be back next Thursday with a new tasty Roasted Parsnip And Carrot Soup recipe where I’ll be showcasing that amazing Optimum VAC2 Air Vacuum Blender again, and it’s excellent soup blending capabilities!

Have a great weekend and I’ll catch up with you next Thursday.

  1. Neil, perfect planning to have all the ingredients for this prepped and ready to go! My daughter LOVES breakfast burritos and she would love these and one of our spinach shakes when we get back from the gym – though on Saturdays we tend to laze around and head to the gym only around lunch time. I LOVE chorizo so I am so down for a burrito with chorizo like you suggested. Happy 50th anniversary to your parents, Neil! Hoping all of y’all have a wonderful family gathering! Happy Weekend to you and lady Lynne!

      Thanks Shashi, a spinach shake sounds interesting. I’ll have to look that up! 🙂

      I’m hoping to get that burrito with chorizo up sometime later this year, so thanks for your thumbs up on that!

      I hope you enjoy your weekend too, and your gym session. The place where we’re going to celebrate my parents 50th has a spa and gym so I’m looking forward to going somewhere new for my workout.

  2. So we used to make breakfast burritos almost every Saturday morning after we went running, too! But that was back when we lived in Atlanta…and it was also before Robbie. Now it’s more like, “oh man, I’m starving and I forgot to eat breakfast!” But I love the idea of prepping these burritos in advance. I think you’ve convinced me to make breakfast burritos this weekend, Neil! (And for the record, the ground beef ones sound amazing!) Congrats to your parents on the 50th anniversary…what a great reason to celebrate!!

      I’ve a feeling I may be making these breakfast burritos this weekend too David, so enjoy yours as well!

      I can imagine now though with having Robbie as you say, just actually getting a chance to get breakfast itself is a challenge. Ha ha!

      Thanks for your good wishes for this weekend. My parents read this so they’ll probably see that. They’ll appreciate that, thanks again!

  3. Brilliant. And kids would love these as well, minus the jalapenos!

  4. You can prep this recipe days in advance?! Holy sweet moly it’s like you’ve tapped into my inner organizer and made these burritos specifically for me! I’m all about meal prep and it doesn’t hurt this breakfast is quick and healthy SCORE! Amazing job, Neil 🙂

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Totally with you there Christina. 🙂

      I haven’t got loads of time to be spending it all in the kitchen so if I can prep things in advance like these Burritos then it’s a bonus!

  5. These burritos look delicious! I haven’t had one for breakfast in a long time. I vote for the chorizo version! Have fun on your trip!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Another vote for the chorizo version, thanks Jeff! I’ll need to set to work on that soon seeing as there’s quite a lot of popularity for that version. 🙂

  6. These burritos look so wholesome and delicious. I never attempted a burrito for breakfast. Your prep’ing in advance tips are now enticing me to up my breakfast game with these!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Thanks Neha. I’m all about the easy weekend breakfasts with as much work done in advance. That’s what these quick healthy breakfast burritos are all about. Glad you like ’em! 🙂
