  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or your favorite variety)
  • 1/4 cup diced cooked ham or bacon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup diced bell peppers (red, green, or yellow)
  • 2 tablespoons diced onion
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 large flour tortilla
  • Cooking spray or butter for greasing the pan


  1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. While the skillet is heating up, crack the eggs into a bowl, add the milk, and whisk until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Once the skillet is hot, lightly grease it with cooking spray or butter. Add the diced bell peppers and onion to the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes, or until they begin to soften.
  3. Add the diced ham or bacon to the skillet, if using, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until heated through.
  4. Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet, making sure they cover the entire surface. Let the eggs cook undisturbed for a few seconds until they begin to set around the edges.
  5. Using a spatula, gently push the cooked edges of the eggs towards the center of the skillet, allowing the uncooked eggs to flow to the edges. Continue cooking and gently stirring until the eggs are cooked through but still moist.
  6. Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the cooked eggs and allow it to melt for about 30 seconds.
  7. Once the cheese has melted, remove the skillet from the heat and spoon the scrambled eggs onto the center of the flour tortilla.
  8. Top the scrambled eggs with salsa, spreading it evenly over the surface.
  9. Carefully fold the sides of the tortilla over the filling, then roll it up tightly from the bottom to form a burrito.
  10. Serve the breakfast burrito immediately, or wrap it in aluminum foil to enjoy on the go.

Feel free to customize this breakfast burrito to suit your tastes by adding your favorite ingredients such as diced tomatoes, avocado, black beans, or cilantro. You can also make a batch of these burritos ahead of time and freeze them for a quick and convenient breakfast option during the week. Simply wrap each burrito individually in aluminum foil and store them in the freezer. To reheat, unwrap the burrito from the foil and microwave it for 1-2 minutes, or until heated through. Enjoy your speedy morning scramble and start your day off right with a delicious and satisfying breakfast burrito!
