Some tips to make the best and perfect breakfast burrito from scratch
- Season the ingredients at last minute with salt and pepper. Adding salt early draws out moisture and makes egg watery and burritos soggy.
- Use sharp or spicy cheese for an additional kick. I personally love Pepper Jack. You can add Gouda or Cheddar too. For a mild flavor you can even use mozzarella.
- It is always good to warm your tortilla before you add fillings and wrap. Do not overstuff the burritos too. Else it may be difficult to roll and even break.
Tips to Make-ahead breakfast burritos or Freezer Breakfast Burritos
- Once you are done rolling, tightly wrap the breakfast burritos in parchment paper or aluminum foil.
- Transfer this to freezer-safe Ziploc bags and keep it in the freezer for up to 1 month and use it as and when required.
How do you reheat breakfast burritos?
- To reheat in the oven: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the burritos from the plastic bag but leave them wrapped on parchment paper or foil. warm directly on your oven rack for 20 minutes or till it is heated through.
- To reheat in a microwave: Unwrap the burritos and microwave on high for 2 ½ minutes, flipping halfway through.
- To reheat in stovetop: Place a large skillet over medium heat, drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil. Place the burritos with folded side down and saute it for a minute or two. Then flip and heat for another minute or till it is heated through.
For the best results, I would recommend thawing the frozen burritos in the refrigerator overnight.

Detailed recipe for Healthy and Easy Breakfast Burritos
- 5 Eggs, beaten
- 1 Onion, sliced
- 3 Mushrooms, sliced
- 1 Handful of Spinach
- 1 Tomato, sliced
- ½ Green bell pepper (Capsicum), sliced
- 2 slice Cheese of your choice
- 2 Flour tortillas, burrito size (homemade or store-bought)
- 1 tablespoon Cooking oil
- ¼ teaspoon Salt
- ¼ teaspoon Pepper
- In a pan on medium heat add ½ tablespoon of oil, onions, and mushrooms until they develop color and set aside.
- In the same pan, saute spinach for a couple of minutes or until wilted. Set aside.
- In the same pan add the remaining ½ tablespoon oil, add beaten eggs, and prepare a scramble. To scramble eggs, leave the eggs undisturbed for a minute after adding them to the pan. Once it sets, using a wooden spatula start stirring the eggs slowly until the eggs are no more liquid and small crumbles are formed. Do not overcook. Add broken cheese slices, season with salt and pepper, mix well, and set aside.
- In a dry skillet, on medium-high heat warm up the tortillas as per package instructions. Usually, heat 15 seconds on each side.
- To assemble, place the warm tortillas on a working surface. Add half portions of sauteed onions, mushroom and spinach, tomatoes, green bell pepper, and scrambled eggs at the center.
- Fold opposite ends of the tortilla towards the center. This prevents the filling from falling off. Roll the burrito using the free unfolded end (burrito-style). Cut into half if desired.
- Breakfast Burritos are ready. Serve and enjoy.
