I should probably give a disclaimer. I am not a big breakfast eater nor do I try to be a big breakfast eater. It may or may not be the most important meal of the day but I seem to do fine without it. I'll tell you what I'm not fine without and that's a cup of coffee right when I wake up. If you need proof, let me send you a copy of an email response I typed up and sent before I had a cup of coffee. It has more mistakes than I care to admit to right now.
All that to say, I've been finding some delicious, healthy and *quick* breakfast meals that are satisfying even for this self-proclaimed non-breakfast eater. So that's saying a lot. Whenever I get the chance to try these recipes out and give my stamp of approval, I'll be sure to share it with you on the blog.
Today on the breakfast menu:
With this recipe, you can make a burrito just for you or for the whole family. I like the idea of making single servings for breakfast, especially if breakfast isn't the meal you eat together as a family. This keeps food from being wasted. However, these burritos also freeze well. If you want, you can make a bunch at the beginning of the week and individually wrap them up so that it's a grab-n-go kind of meal. That's also great if you don't like cooking in the morning but you can handle zapping something in the microwave or heating something on the stove (aka: my kind of lazy breakfast prep).
The burritos call for 4 ingredients plus the tortillas. You probably have most (if not all) of the ingredients in your kitchen already. Perfection.
So how 'bout that recipe already??
This recipe is for a single serving (1-2 burritos)
1/4 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
2 egg whites
2 Tbsp salsa
2 Tbsp shredded cheese
(I honestly don't measure the cheese, I just add how however much I want)
Pour all little olive oil into a frying pan, then add all ingredients. Scramble together and scoop onto a tortilla.
Could you ask for an easier breakfast burrito?
What else should I add to my burrito? I'm thinking there's room for growth with this recipe. But not too much growth....I still want to keep it simple in the mornings ;-)
