Breakfast Eggs Tortilla

Easy Omelette Burrito- Breakfast Egg Burrito


Easy and delicious Omelette burrito, perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner…

I actually had this at mid-night and yes this helped to succumb to my mid night craving. On weekends, I sleep late and wake up late too. How I love to sleep in the morning without the blare of the alarm. Last Saturday, we had an early dinner and stayed up real late. By mid-night we felt real hungry. We both (My Man and I) hopped into the kitchen holding hands and together we made this Omelette burrito.

It tasted so good and this time I flipped the omelette successfully without messing it up. I’m proud of myself 🙂

Omelette was topped with cheddar cheese and folded in a tortilla and grilled to perfection. It’s totally delicious.

You can make the omelette with just egg whites or more egg whites/less yolk, with veggies or skip the veggies. I love adding spinach to my omelette.
Cheese can be added to the egg mixture and make the omelette with the cheese.
You can skip grilling the tortilla/omelette on the panini maker; just warm the tortilla and wrap the omelette/cheese in it.
