One evening while we were eating  Fajitas! both Eleanor & Beth were remembering “that time in Brooklyn” when we had Breakfast Burritos. Honestly I couldn’t remember it at all, so this morning I worked it out – here’s the recipe.

8 slices bacon chopped
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped peppers
8 eggs
1 tbsp butter
Salt & pepper
To Serve
Flour tortillas
Medium salsa
Shredded cheddar
Sour cream
Tin foil


  1.   In a skillet over high heat cook the chopped bacon until nice and crispy. Remove from pan and drain on kitchen paper. Set to 1 side
  2.   Remove some of the bacon fat from the pan, add the mushrooms and peppers and cook until soft. Set to 1 side
  3.  In a bowl whisk together eggs, salt and pepper
  4.  Add the butter to the pan, add egg mixture and whisk as it cooks. Set to 1 side
  5.  Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 1 minute.
  6.   Assemble your burritos:
    1.  Place a tortilla on a square of foil slightly larger then the tortilla.
    2.  On 1 half of the tortilla layer the filling in the following order: Sour cream, salsa, egg, cheese, bacon, pepper and mushroom mix.
    3.   Carefully roll the tortilla from the side with the filling
    4.   Fold foil over the bottom of the burrito and wrap around tightly
    5.   ENJOY!!
