Trying It Out-Breakfast Burritos

A friend of mine referred me to a recipe at Southern Plate for Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos. It sounded good, but I was skeptical because I have never had a breakfast burrito...

I tried this recipe yesterday, but made some changes... I was working with what I had on hand.
  • 7 large soft taco shells (not as big as burrito)
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 package turkey bacon (or as Boo calls it, Fake-on)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Here are some images of my process:

Egg, bacon, mushroom mixture

Then, building the burrito:

And, my finished burritos... I ran out of foil.

Let me say, these things were great! I'm almost tempted to buy whole wheat tortillas to make them even healthier... I'd have to leave the mushrooms out in order to get Bob to eat them.


  1. Glad they worked out for you! (I'm with Bob - I'd have to have the no mushroom version too.)

  2. Yeah, I wasn't thinking when I added the mushrooms... now I'm pretty much stuck eating 7 burritos by myself, lol!

  3. Looks YUMMY!!!! (Except for the mushrooms... LOL)
