In May 2014, I learned that I needed to stop eating meat due to an enzyme found in it that was making me very sick. I decided to start making healthier choices for my diet when I became a vegetarian and have lost a little over 30 lbs so far on this journey. One way I have stayed on track with this new way of eating is to eat a high protein, low carb breakfast. Today I am sharing my breakfast burrito recipe.
Teresa’s Breakfast Burrito
1 dollop Country Crock Spread (or use butter)
1/4 onion, chopped
2 large eggs
1 small soft tortilla shell
1 handful shredded cheese (see picture above)
Side dish suggestions:
guacamole (click pic above for my recipe)
pico or salsa (click pic above for my recipe)
In a plate, place a tortilla shell and sprinkle one side with cheese, as pictured above. Set aside.
In medium skillet on medium heat, add a dollop of Country Crock Spread and melt. Add onions and sauté until lightly brown. Do not overcook. Next crack two eggs and add to the onions. Scramble lightly. Place cooked egg over cheese onto prepared tortilla. Fold over tortilla and place in the now dry skillet over medium to low heat. Tortilla will be full. Brown on both sides being careful not to burn the tortilla. Serve with your favorite side dishes. I listed my favorites above and if you click the two pictures, it will take you to my recipes for those dishes. I made this with a small tortilla she’ll because of my dieting goals, but if you are not dieting, you can use a large tortilla instead. Enjoy!
