If you made me pick between sweet and savory breakfast, I’d pick savory most of the time. I’ve probably mentioned on this site before that sometimes I’ll even have leftover dinner from the night before for breakfast the following day.

(Notable exception: When there’s fresh cake, sometimes I will have cake for breakfast. It’s a thing. Which is why I try not to have cake around).

One of the breakfast dishes I make for myself very often is a breakfast burrito like the one I’m sharing today. If you’ve never had a breakfast burrito before, it’s definitely time to try. For some reason I didn’t like the thought of breakfast burritos for the longest time (you know, before I had tried it, when I was judging it hard), but what a fool I was. They’re SO good. Scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, tomatoes, avocado, spinach, and scallions, all wrapped up in a warm tortilla. There’s a reason it’s in my regular rotation.

To get started, fry up some bacon until crispy:

Make sure you’re using good bacon (my favorite is Niman Ranch, and no, they don’t know me). I am amazed by how much the quality of bacon ranges, and it makes such a difference here!

Next, prep scrambled eggs by combining a couple eggs with water, salt, and pepper:

The water helps make the scrambled eggs a little fluffier when you whisk it in:

Scramble the eggs, then place them on a flour tortilla (or try these low carb Cauliflower Tortillas) with Mexican-style cheese or sharp cheddar, tomatoes, scallions…

The crispy bacon and some avocado….

A little baby spinach too:

Then roll it all up:

(Yes, I have a problem with overstuffing things).
