Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast Burrito

This is a modification of the recipe from the Netflix show “Cooking with Nadia”.

Here are the ingredients,

  1. 2 eggs
  2. Chopped Parsley or Cilantro – 2-3 tbsp
  3. A few twists of black Pepper
  4. A pinch of Garlic Powder
  5. A pinch of Onion Powder
  6. A pinch of Cumin Powder
  7. A pinch of salt
  8. 2-4 Mushrooms
  9. 1 large Tortilla
  10. Sriracha and Dill Mustard
  11. 1 cheese slice

Preparation:

Chop the mushrooms and sauté them with a bit of oil on a nonstick pan. Cook them for about 5-7 minutes until the water in them has evaporated and they are done. Taken them out of the pan and keep them aside.

In a bowl, beat the following ingredients – eggs, chopped parsley/cilantro, cumin powder, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper.
Beating the egg for longer would make it fluffy in the pan and might impact the structural integrity of the burrito.

Add some oil to the pan and add the egg mixture. Don’t keep stirring it around, we are not making a country omlette!
Turn the heat to medium. Do not flip the egg at this time.

While the eggs are cooking, let’s get the tortilla done. I used Sriracha and Dill Mustard in mine and I make a zig-zag pattern for maximum sauce coverage.

Once the eggs are done on one side, add the mushrooms on top.

Now add the cheese slices. I use Kraft cheese slices, they are cheap and taste really good!

Now add the tortilla with the saucy side facing the egg and cheese.

Now it is time to flip the tortilla and the eggs. I use a steel plate, put it over the tortilla and invert the pan. Now the whole set up is flipped! Now I add a bit of oil to the pan, and add the burrito with the tortilla at the bottom.

The burrito is done when the tortilla bubbles a bit. I transfer the burrito from the pan to the cutting board and roll it.

I serve the burrito by slicing it in the middle. The cross section looks so good!

I like to eat it just like that, my wife likes it with a bit of ketchup on the side. This is a great breakfast option and it is very filling.
The best part of this recipe is that it is easy to make and it can be tweaked depending on everybody’s choice of spices and herbs.
