Easy Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Burrito has all your favorite breakfast items in one meal! It has hashbrowns and the bacon-and-egg combo that we all love, topped with the melting cheddar cheese, makes it irresistible!

The use of a tortilla wrap to get things together is refreshing and makes it a good on-the-go meal, too. You know how busy people can easily skip breakfast, but it is not the healthiest thing to do. So, serve them this instead!

Kids and adults alike will love this! It is packed with meaty flavors that are balanced with the potatoes and tortilla. It is one hearty meal that anyone would love at any time of any day.

I served this last Saturday for breakfast and I got requests to make it again for the next meal and the next day!

How to make Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Burrito

Cook the bacon:

  • First, without adding any oil, let the bacon cook in its fat on a skillet over medium heat. Once it is done, put the cooked pieces in paper towels then, drain about half of the excess fat.

Cook the hashbrowns:

  • Next, using the same skillet, cook the hashbrowns. Just follow the instructions in the packaging.

Prepare the eggs:

  • Whisk them with half and half. Wipe the skillet clean, melt some butter, and pour the mixture when the bubbles start to appear on the butter. Cook over low heat and stir slowly when it starts to curdle. To taste, sprinkle salt, pepper, and paprika.

Assemble:

  • Get one tortilla and lay it flat on a working surface. At the center, layer the ingredients starting from the hashbrowns. Then, roll up the sides to secure.

Serve:

  • Serve while warm with a side of hot sauce!

Recipe Tips:

  • Instead of layering in the cheese, you can also cook it with the scrambled eggs.
  • Feel free to leave out the hashbrowns or replace it with some potato wedges or tater tots!
  • Aside from bacon, you can use sausage, turkey bacon, shredded chicken, or pork.
  • Make a double batch so that you can serve one immediately and save the other for later. This makes for a great freezer meal that comes handy when you are busy in the morning.
  • Make sure that you put just enough filling in the middle of the tortilla so that it will be easy to wrap and seal.

This was such a huge hit in our house! I did add diced cooked potatoes to my husband's to make it a bit more filling but we all loved them.
