Breakfast burrito

Egg burritos or Breakfast burritos are usually seen as a nice on the go snack, that you can freeze overnight and microwave or heat up in the pan on the next morning.

Burrito fillings are always varied depending on personal preferences. The creation of this great dish was around the 1970’s in New Mexico.  As history suggests, flour tortillas were used because Sonora, Mexico produced a lot of wheat. Which was adopted and filled with rice and beans to make a filling meal. This took off in 1950’s US which were then frozen to be heated when needed, though the name ‘breakfast burrito” was placed on a menu in 1975.

The common breakfast burrito which we usually see now are composed of scrambled eggs, salsa, sauce, an addition of veggies like bell peppers, spinach, corn or meats like sausages, bacon or ham, cheese and hot sauce or Siracha all wrapped in a tortilla and heated in a press or pan to give it a wonderfully charred look, and served with a refreshing glass of juice or packed to be eaten when you arrive at school or work.
