Spanish breakfast burrito

I'm not normally a breakfast person. Mainly because of the lack of time. I know I could get up a lot earlier and make myself something but I'd rather an extra half hour's sleep over a healthy nutritious breakfast any day. Crazy, huh? I have been eating a lot healthier though and enjoy a lovely bowl of muesli every morning.

Weekends are a different story. I have a family of late sleepers so breakfast could turn into brunch and we have all the time in the world to prepare something a little more exciting. I'm trying to watch my fat intake so thought of doing a breakfast burrito but added some Spanish influenced ingredients. (Well, just whatever I had in the fridge and called it a "Spanish" breakfast burrito.)

Spanish Breakfast Burrito

  • tortilla or wrap
  • 1 x egg, scrambled (seasoned with salt, pepper and a sprinkle of paprika)
  • mushrooms, sauteed
  • cheese, grated
  • stuffed olives, sliced
  • chargrilled capiscum (bell peppers), sliced
  • BBQ sauce
  1. Starting with the scrambled egg, pile all ingredients into the centre of the wrap/tortilla.
  2. Fold up from the bottom, then fold over the left, then the right.
  3. Alternatively, you could roll up and toast in a sandwich press for a minute for a crispy finish.
  4. You could add bacon, chorizo, sausage, onions, spinach, tomatoes, salsa, dips, spreads, whatever you like.



  1. Now that's my sort of hot breakfast. Yummmmmm.

  2. Anne, now that's a great way to start a morning! LOVE the addition of the olives!

  10. Hello, this looks lovely, and the olives would be very yummy in there. I am so envious of your late sleepers... poor me!! I've had 15 years of early risers. 6am this morning... I always have a big and usually healthy breakfast... it's easy when you're up so early. How much I'd prefer to sleep in!!

  16. I’m not really a breakfast person too, but I will never ever say no if it's a Mexican dish that is being offered on the table. For me, a burrito is one of best options for breakfast because it has all the carbs and protein I need to keep me going. It's also a kind of take-away food so I can eat while hailing a taxi cab or waiting for the train. =)
