  1. I’m so glad I came across your site! I have been searching for new recipes and alternatives to the things that I already eat on a daily basis and this just gave me such inspiration to start improving my eating habits. This breakfast wrap sounds absolutely delicious and I’m wondering which tortilla type would you recommend? Spinach, whole wheat, cheese, original…?

    1. It’s hard to come up with original ideas that are healthy and easy to make, so I’m happy I could help.  As for the flavor, that’s totally up to you as I think any kind would taste great.  My personal favorite is honey wheat!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing a good recipe to add to my breakfast menu of the week, as I’m always looking for some new ideas to keep on track for a good diet, your burritos recipe look good and it will be a good addition my any breakfast weekly or monthly menu. I will only add to it a good mexican hot salsa, it will make it better! Your recipe could also be good for a light dinner!

    1. Mexican hot salsa?  Oh, my!  Thank you for the great idea…I’m going to try this the next time I make it.  And, yes, it would be great at any meal!

  3. This looks like such a delicious western breakfast burrito. It looks like it is so simple to make and looks mouth watering!

    Although 500 calories is a lot but I will still definitely be trying this recipe for the western breakfast burrito 😉

    thank you so much for this recipe Cynthia 🙂

    1. Thank you for your comments, Tina.  If you feel that 500 calories are too much for you to consume at one meal, you can cut the recipe in half, using one egg and half a tortilla (or a smaller one) and/or leave out the cheese.  You can also cut the original size tortilla in half and eat the other half at another meal!  Enjoy!
