Breakfasts That Boosts Energy:Kid’s Breakfast Burrito

Kids always love foods wrapped in a tortilla. It’s easy to make, portable and freezable. I always make a huge batch on my meal planning day and freeze. The kids can grab, heat for 40-60 seconds and go! Perfect for the days when you’re running late!

Kid’s Breakfast Burrito

Ingredients:


 1 Tablespoon butter

8 eggs, beaten

¼ teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

6 10-inch regular flour tortillas (wheat tortillas is also a good option)

 Filling:

 ½ cup grated Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese

1 tomato, diced

½ cup onion, diced

¼ cup green or red pepper (mixture of both is colorful)

1 cup bacon or sausage, cooked and drained

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

½ cup salsa

 Optional Ingredients:

 Black olives, sliced

Mild green chiles, diced (adds a little kick)

Avocado, thinly sliced

Chives

 Directions:

Over a bowl, crack your eggs. Using a whisk, whisk together the eggs, salt and pepper  until the yolk and egg whites are mixed together. Set aside.

In a medium skillet, cook bacon or sausage. Drain any excess dripping. Let cool and crumble bacon or chop sausage. In another skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Once the butter is melted, pour eggs into skillet. Using a *Silicone spatula, scramble the eggs until they are no longer runny.

Meanwhile, to make the tortillas easier to work with and keep them from tearing, warm them for a few minutes on the rack of a 250 degree F oven or microwave for 30 seconds.

In a small bowl, mix softened cream cheese and salsa. Take a tortilla and lay it on your cutting board. Spread cream cheese and salsa mixture over tortilla. Scoop your filling ingredients onto tortilla and spread evenly. Top with shredded cheese.

Fold over the top and bottom edges of the tortilla so they meet in the middle. Roll the long edge of the tortilla up until it meets the opposite edge. Continue with remaining tortillas.

Serve with additional salsa.

Recipe Note: To freeze, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, than foil. Label and freeze.
