12 Breakfast Burrito Recipes To Get You Pumped About Mornings

If you put anything in a tortilla, it gets instantly better. So, it only makes sense that when it comes to the first meal of the day, we just can’t get enough breakfast burrito recipes. Sure, an omelet or scrambled eggs make perfectly fine morning fare, but swaddled in a warm tortilla, they taste above and beyond amazing.

While it’s fair to say we could probably will ourselves to stomach any kind of burrito in the morning, the breakfast burrito is a special breed: it’s usually simple, easy to digest, and not too difficult to put together when you’re still groggy. They can even be a make-ahead meal if you freeze them the night before. That’s why it’s one of the best healthy breakfast ideas, after all. It keeps you happy, full, and prepared for a long day ahead.

When you’ve got a roaring appetite in the morning, look no further than these 12 burrito recipes. They’re so good that you may just reconsider grabbing Chipotle later in the day, and instead opt to have breakfast for dinner with one of these tasty recipes. Grab some tortillas and a sauté pan, and start thinking creatively. Everything is better in a tortilla, after all.
