Breakfast Burrito

2013 Kids Recipe Challenge winning recipe: 2nd Place!

Jaimie, from Brantford, loves to help make this recipe – especially cracking the eggs!  

Make the egg mixture the night before so all that needs to be done is a warm up in the microwave and wrap in a tortilla to head out to school or work. A great start to anyone’s day. 

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 4 minutes

Makes: 1 serving





1 Tbsp (15 mL)

Green onions, chopped


Red or green bell pepper, diced


Pinch each salt and freshly ground black pepper


Shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup (60 mL)

Small whole wheat tortillas                          



  1. In a bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in onion, pepper, salt and pepper
  2. Spray a small nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium low heat. Pour egg mixture into skillet and as egg begins to set, use a spatula to gently push cooked portions to the centre. Tilt pan to allow uncooked eggs to flow into empty spaces.
  3. Sprinkle with cheese and cook for 1 minute or until eggs are set and cheese is melted. 
  4. Divide egg in two and place each half onto a tortilla. Roll up to enjoy.
