Now that life seems to be getting back to normal, or as they say our “new normal”, I find that we’re getting out more. With summer vacation in full swing the grandkids and I have been busy doing outdoor things; and we try to get out early enough to beat the crowds! So this means breakfast isn’t the huge meals we’ve been making during the past year’s lock downs. This is a good thing! It’s practice for school day breakfasts, something that seems to be in our distant past. Now since breakfast is the best way to start your day it shouldn’t be skipped, but a bowl of cereal or a pop tart don’t exactly rank high on my list. That’s why these Grilled Breakfast Burritos have become a big hit at our house!
These breakfast burritos pretty much have all the things one would consider breakfast food; eggs and potatoes. I make mine meatless, but you can easily add sausage or bacon if you like. The best thing about these burritos are that they can be made ahead of time and frozen. Just heat them up when you need them. They can also be eaten on the go which makes them very convenient, specially when you’re running late on a school day!
Of course if you want to be fancy you can plate them and top them with your favorite condiments. I love mine with sour cream, salsa, and a creamy lime cilantro sauce I find at Costco. I also use low carb tortillas but you can use whatever flour tortilla you prefer.
Here’s my recipe for Homemade Grilled Breakfast Burritos! Mix up a big batch today!
