Bored with the usual breakfast routine? Vegetarian breakfast burritos make for a fun breakfast if you're tired of the usual cereal or pancakes—and kids love them too.

This recipe keeps things simple with eggs, salsa, and cheese, so you can always add extra spices or vegetables to suit your taste. This is a great option for breakfast on the go.


  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • Salt, to taste

  • Pepper, to taste

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or butter, or margarine

  • 1 soft flour tortilla

  • 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese

  • 2 tablespoons salsa

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs together with the milk until well-beaten. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Heat the oil or butter in a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat.

  4. Carefully add the eggs to the skillet. Cook the eggs, frequently mixing, until you have scrambled eggs of the desired consistency.

  5. Warm the flour tortilla in the microwave for a few seconds, just until it is warm and soft. Place the scrambled eggs in the center of the flour tortilla, and top with cheese and salsa.

  6. Wrap and enjoy your vegetarian breakfast burrito.


  • Try adding a dash of hot sauce and some scallions to your breakfast burrito if you have them on hand.
  • You have a lot of options for choosing eggs for your breakfast burrito. To choose the healthiest and most humanely raised eggs, look for eggs that are from local farms, or eggs with a label indicating the chickens were pasture raised, cage free or free range. Don't be fooled by the term "organic": It doesn't necessarily mean that the chickens were humanely raised or that the eggs will be more nutritious.
