Weekend Breakfast Blogging- Breakfast Burrito

The host for this month's Weekend Breakfast Blogging is Sig of the blog
Live to Eat, and the theme she picked has to do with Eggs......

To tell you the truth, I am NOT a fan of the 'incredible,edible Egg'...but my sons and hubby are.....so I do end up making eggs for breakfast...here is one such breakfast item - the breakfast burrito. Scrambled eggs seasoned with spices and cheese are wrapped in a burrito and topped off with some more cheese and salsa....sounds good, doesn't it?

Healthy, wholesome, and Yummy....this burrito is packed with protein to start the day off right!
Here is a recipe for one breakfast burrito: Add more ingredients according to your family size and appetite!
  • 2 - Eggs, beaten with a tbsp of milk, black pepper, salt, paprika.
  • 1- burrito - warmed for 12 seconds in the microwave.
  • Cheddar Cheese - shredded finely
  • Salsa sauce - to your taste
  • JalapeƱos to top off the burrito (optional)
  • Non-stick cooking spray-PAM
In a bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, pepper and salt. You can add some chopped jalapeƱos if you would like some heat. Set aside and heat the pan. Spray pan with the Pam, and slowly add the eggs, stirring briskly so that the eggs are cooked evenly. Add a little cheese if you like and mix well.
Meanwhile, warm up the burrito, add some salsa on the bottom, spread a layer on eggs on top, add some cheese and put in the microwave until the cheese melts. I also put some cheese and salsa on top for more flavor....totally up to you. That's it!

Serve hot with some orange juice and a side of fresh fruit for a complete meal! I served this with Valencia Orange juice and fresh nectarines. Here is another look. Enjoy.

Now that looks good, will have to ask my wife to make it. I would have tried to make it myself, but as you know the worldcup is going on, I just cannot do anything till it ends. Will be at the mercy of my wife till then. Thanks for the wonderful wholesome breakfast.

Hi Trupti,

Absolutely great pics and recipe. This is what we generally have over the weekends. I sometimes add sliced bell pepper and home made fries or hash browns to the burrito :) ... Divine :)

Trupti,
I dont know whether I come here for the music or the wonderful recipes:)
Can I suggest something? Hope you dont mind. You colours should be alternate for ease of reading on the internet. It is a little hard to read acutally, esp your letters are in bold and even flouroscent I guess? Or if the background is dark, letters should be offwhite or grey or something like that. I am not an expert on any of this, but just telling you. You have such a beautiful blog. Just some tips. Hope you dont mind.:)

trupti said...

Musical..aahh..Paneer Bhurji, what a lovely idea! Don;t forget the Jalapenos!

Sharmi: yes, kids love these...!

Samir: I hope she does make them!!

Deepa: it's a nice change from the usual..try it sometime..

Ashaji:ooh...can't wait to see your version!

Sangeeta: ah yes...I do that sometimes too for K!

Injipennu: I don't mind at ALL..will see what colors work..!

What a great idea Trupti! I am always looking for interesting b'fast ideas because if the meal is not appealing the girls will only have a glass of milk to drink and I hate them going to school on just a glass of milk.

GET TO KNOW: BLACK CUMIN SEEDS

black cumin seeds = royal cumin seeds = kala jeera = shahi jeera = saah jeera Pronunciation: KUH-min Notes: Indian cooks use this spice in many of their curries and tandoori dishes. It's darker and sweeter than ordinary cumin. To bring out its nutty flavor, it helps to toast the seeds briefly before using them. Substitutes: cumin (Not as sweet as black cumin.) OR nigella
