egg burrito

This is a super simple recipe. So much that it hardly feels like a recipe at all. But I'm posting it so that I remember that simple meals can sometimes be the best ones, and because it's a low-calorie meal that is filling and delicious.

RECIPE: Egg Burrito

Pam cooking spray (opt)
2 eggs
1 flour tortilla
1 tsp. mayo

Place a small, non-stick frying pan on the stove over medium-high heat. Once hot, spray it with a bit of Pam. Quickly after that, crack your two eggs into the pan. They'll start to cook immediately. With a rubber scraper, mix the eggs around- popping the yolks and mixing them up. You're going for scrambled. Cook the eggs until they are done to your liking (no longer slimy but still moist), flipping and breaking them up when needed, and remove from heat.

Warm up your tortilla in the microwave, for only about 10 seconds. You want it pliable. Spread mayo down the center of the tortilla. Add your scrambled eggs. Roll the tortilla up into a burrito, and VOILA! An egg burrito.

Serve warm. Eat up. And enjoy!

  1. This is hands down, one of my FAVORITE meals! 'Cept, I have to have the bake-them-yourself tortillas and either sausage or bacon. I know, there goes the low fat-ness, but YUM! :)

  2. A great way to start the day!

  3. We make these for breakfast often, although never with mayo (not a fan). I throw in salsa, frozen spinach, cheese, or whatever else happens to be around. Love it!
