The best days of my life include breakfast burritos* – and since I’m a big fan of “breakfast for dinner”, I’m not opposed to eating them more than once per day if the opportunity presented itself.
The breakfast burrito might be one of the best breakfast food-related concoctions ever. Rumored to have originated in the early 1970’s, many diners around the world have tried to make them a staple. My first introduction of the breakfast burrito was somewhat recently – in 2008, to be exact. A local convenience store called Rutter’s had them on their made-to-order menu and I gave it a shot. Being an herbivore (with a few slip-ups every once in awhile), my typical breakfast burrito includes eggs, tomatoes, salsa and cheese. Together, this combination is absolutely heavenly.
If you are a master with tortillas, the breakfast burrito is easy to make at home. Obviously you can get creative and throw an assortment of veggies and spices in there if you want, which makes each burrito a delicious experiment. While scrambled eggs and a flour tortilla are the standard base, the first rumored breakfast burrito included bacon and potatoes. My most recent breakfast burrito encounter included guacamole, which seemed risky, but worked out quite well.
Celebrate your Friday by digging into a breakfast burrito! If you have any recipes or tips on how to create a great burrito combo, I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
*Honestly, the best day of my life was when I saw a David Cook concert and ate a breakfast burrito shortly afterward. It was legendary.
