Potato Breakfast Burrito

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Additional Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 4 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 4 large whole-wheat tortillas
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Steps to Cook:

  1. Prepare the Potatoes:

    • Peel and dice the potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes.
    • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
    • Add the diced potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are tender and lightly browned, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Sauté the Vegetables:

    • In the same skillet, add the diced onion and bell pepper.
    • Sauté the vegetables until they are softened and lightly caramelized, about 5-7 minutes.
    • Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute, until fragrant.
  3. Scramble the Eggs:

    • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a fork or whisk.
    • Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet with the sautéed vegetables.
    • Scramble the eggs, stirring frequently, until they are cooked through and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Assemble the Burritos:

    • Lay the whole-wheat tortillas on a clean surface.
    • Divide the scrambled egg mixture evenly among the tortillas, placing it in the center of each one.
    • Top each portion of eggs with a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese and a tablespoon of salsa.
    • Fold the bottom of the tortilla up, then fold in the sides and continue rolling tightly to create a burrito.
  5. Warm the Burritos (Optional):

    • If desired, you can warm the assembled burritos in a skillet or on a griddle over medium heat for 2-3 minutes per side, or until the tortilla is lightly toasted.

Cook’s Note:

  • For a spicier version, you can add diced jalapeño or hot sauce to the egg mixture.
  • Feel free to customize the fillings to your liking, such as adding cooked crumbled bacon, diced avocado, or sautéed mushrooms.
  • These burritos can be prepared in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven before serving.
  • Serve the potato breakfast burritos with a side of fresh fruit or a green salad for a well-rounded and nutritious meal.
