One-Minute Breakfast Burrito

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the American Egg Board.

Holy cow, it’s back to school week here for us this week.  And you know what that means?  Frantic mornings. Well, more frantic than usual around our place. 😉

At $1.99 a serving, this one-minute breakfast burrito is healthier and faster than anything than you can grab at the drive-through window! #eggs #breakfast #recipe

Also?  Lots of concern from this mama that her kiddo has good, nutritious food in his belly before sending him out the door for a full day of learning.  I could make it super easy on myself and just purchase the school breakfast…which last year I learned consisted of sugar cereal and a donut.


Did you know that research shows that a protein-rich breakfast, such as an egg breakfast, improves appetite control and leads to increased feelings of fullness?  This makes it easier for children to focus and learn in school.  Sugary cereal and a donut?  Not so much.

Plus, eggs are all natural and filled with essential vitamins, minerals and six grams of high quality protein. They are a perfect breakfast to give kids the energy they need for busy school days because they can be prepared in a number of ways.

I have to admit, there were some days last year we did have the school breakfast, because there “just wasn’t time” to prepare anything at home (also posing a problem is that my child is the slowest eater in the known universe and doesn’t care one iota about food even though his mom spends all of  her free time writing about food, making food, reading about food, and looking at pictures of food).


There are no longer any excuses for not being able to have a nutritious, affordable breakfast on those busy school day mornings.  At an average retail cost of 15 cents apiece, eggs are one of the most affordable sources of high quality protein per serving!  Even better, eggs can easily be microwaved, baked ahead, scrambled or even hard-boiled for a quick grab-and-go option.

Our new favorite school morning breakfast meal?  This one-minute (or so) breakfast burrito.  Coming in at $1.99 a serving – this easy breakfast meal is healthier and faster (and more economical!) than anything than you can grab at the drive-through window.

This school year, we’re replacing our sugary breakfast cereal with eggs.  Then this mama doesn’t have to worry about her kiddo’s tummy on school day mornings.

  4. Liza A

    Thanks – for the great recipe! Struggling to get my preschooler to eat breakfast but this she may go for!

  5. Liza A

    Oh and our favorite – over easy egg in a pita pocket with cheese! Simple tasty and portable for crazy AMs.

  6. suzi

    In our house, we love French toast-especially made with cinnamon bread. Yum!

  7. Gina R

    wow, that is pricey! We love eggs but with 3 hungry boys in the house, that price per serving isn’t feasible for us at all. My boys love breakfast burritos. What about substituting turkey sausage? That could be precooked and kept in the fridge

    • Ashley

      Hi Gina! I used precooked turkey sausage in mine and they turned out great!

  8. Erika

    Thanks for the idea. I always hated having the pan to clean up afterwards.

  9. Aileen

    Egg in a hat! 🙂

  10. Terri Hughes

    Won’t have to worry about running out of eggs……..thanks!

  11. Laura @ The Salty Kitchen

    OMG! What a great giveaway! I *heart* eggs, and I eat them almost each day for breakfast OR dinner!

  12. Trina R.

    my favorite breakfast is very similar — it’s chorizo sausage, Mexican cheese, eggs, green peppers and onions wrapped in a tortilla and served with salsa!

  13. amy @ fearless homemaker

    Your little guy is SUCH a cutie! And these burritos sound fab. My fave back-to-school egg breakfast? A couple eggs scrambled with some tomatoes, cheese, + sausage. YUM!

  14. Trish - Mom On Timeout

  16. Heather B

    I love breakfast burritos, especially with salsa! The family favorite has always been pumpkin French toast though! No matter the season!

  24. Elena

    I like cheese and ham omelet

  25. David

    My favorite back to school egg breakfast is french toast. Sometimes we even make sausage links and use the french toast as a hot dog bun. Or put some cheese between two slices and eat it like a grilled omelet sandwich. The last one a not so healthy, so it probably wouldn’t be great for breakfast, though. But the kids love it.

  26. lizzy

    scrambled eggs and bacon!

    I like to make a sausage and egg casserole the night before and just stick it in the oven that morning.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
