Protein Packed Breakfast Burritos for Kids
I grew up eating breakfast burritos when I was camping with my family and wow did I forgot how good they are! These Protein Packed Breakfast Burritos are so good. You can make them fresh in the morning as your kids are getting dressed or you can make the filling the night before and zap it in the microwave the next morning! This is a great go-to recipe for busy mornings!
How to Make Kid-Friendly Breakfast Burritos
First, scramble up your eggs! I love cracking all my eggs into a bowl before just to make sure I don’t accidentally let an shells make it into the pan! Add your milk and any salt and pepper you want and with the bowl/pyrex measuring cup a cook whisk. Then pour into your pan and scramble! Everyone has their own tricks to perfect scrambled eggs, mine are: 1. Don’t let the pan get too hot! 2. Constantly fold/move the eggs. 3. Don’t over-cook them!
What Do You Put On A Breakfast Burrito?
To make the filling, just dump out your cooked eggs and use the same pan to save yourself time washing dishes. Add your meat, seasonings and onions to the pan! Break up the meat with a wooden spoon or spatula and let brown.
Then you’ll add your drained and rinsed black beans and drained Rotel! I drained my Rotel because I didn’t want to add to much moisture to the filling… no one likes a soggy burrito!
Add in your chopped spinach…
And then the cooked eggs and give it all a good stir! You can taste it and adjust the seasoning if you want! If you’re making this for yourself or any other adults, you can kick up the flavor by adding hot sauce or red pepper flakes!
I melted my cheese to my tortillas to help it all stick together as I wrapped it.
And there you go, the most delicious breakfast on the go! This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes because it keeps me full until lunch! No snacking needed after I ate this Protein Packed Breakfast Burrito!
