Gourmet Whole Grain Breakfast Burrito

  • Yield 4 servings

It’s only convention that says we have to eat cereal and orange juice for breakfast.


olive oil cooking spray
4 eggs
1 large Yukon gold potato, unpeeled, boiled, and cut into bite-size pieces
1 roasted red bell pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
3 tablespoons plain low-fat Greek yogurt
Salt and fresh-ground black pepper, to taste
Four 10-inch whole grain tortillas
3 ounces nitrate-free smoked chicken, cut into bite-size pieces
1/3 cup shredded fontina cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C, or gas mark 5).
  2. Spray a large skillet with the olive oil and place over medium heat.
  3. Lightly beat the eggs and pour into the hot skillet, stirring frequently for a few minutes until the eggs are just set. Remove from the heat.
  4. In a large bowl, gently mix the scrambled eggs, potato, bell pepper, yogurt, salt, and pepper until combined.
  5. Lay out the tortillas and place one-fourth of the egg mixture into the center of each wrap. Top with one-fourth of the chicken and one-fourth of the cheese. Fold the top edge up and over the filling, tuck in the sides, and roll toward you, leaving the seam-side down.
  6. Wrap each burrito in aluminum foil, place the wrapped burritos on a baking sheet, and bake for about 15 minutes, or until hot throughout and the cheese is melted.
