Bacon Avocado Burritos
These hand-held breakfast bundles are quick to make and fun to take when you're on the go. The tortillas are dipped in beaten eggs, then cooked to give them color and flavor. I set our a variety of filling ingredients and toppings and let everyone assemble their own. —Cleo Gossett Ephrata, Washington
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 4 large eggs
- 8 flour tortillas (7 inches)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 large ripe avocado, thinly sliced
- 1-1/2 cups chopped green onions
- 1 package (1 pound) sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
- Salsa, ranch salad dressing or sour cream
- In a shallow bowl, beat eggs. Dip one tortilla in eggs. In a large skillet, cook tortilla in oil on both sides just until egg sets. Remove and place between paper towels to drain; keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas, adding more oil if needed.
- Place the cheese, avocado, onions and bacon down the center of tortillas; top with salsa, salad dressing or sour cream. Fold ends and sides over filling and roll up. Filled burritos may be warmed in the microwave just before serving if desired.
