Breakfast Burritos

At American Guest House Bed and Breakfast, we like to keep our breakfast offerings diverse, to please our guests!  Today or this weekend  try the  breakfast burrito:


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced (1 cup)
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 eggs, scrambled
  • 1/3 cup ( shredded pepper Jack cheese
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (10-inch) whole-wheat tortillas (burrito-size)
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • Hot sauce


Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over a medium-high heat. Cook the onions until they are translucent and peppers are softened, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Whisk together the eggs. Lightly coat the skillet with cooking spray. Reheat yous skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low to prevent sticking and add eggs, scrambling until cooked through, about 3 minutes.  Melt cheese over eggs about a minute before they are done cooking.

Layer each tortilla with 1/4 of the scrambled eggs, some diced tomato and 1/4 of the onion and pepper mixture. Serve with hot-sauce. Roll up burrito-style and serve.

Serves 4
