Ok, let’s start cooking. Whisk the eggs vigorously along with a dash of milk. Whisk them really well so you’ll be rewarded with very fluffy scrambled eggs. Make sure you season the eggs with a little salt and pepper.
Once the egg mixture is ready, we’ll start the real cooking process. Heat up a little oil in a pan, and sauté about 1/2 cup of mixed vegetables. Choose your favorite veggies that you like with your eggs. I made my egg burrito with red bell pepper (capsicum), spring onions (scallions), and red onions. Carrots, leek , green peas, cauliflower, potatoes and tomatoes also pairs really well with the egg. No matter what veggies you choose, just remember to chop them finely so everything will cook evenly.
If you love a bit of heat in your burrito, now is the right time to sprinkle the veggies with red chili flakes. However, this step is totally optional if you don’t like spicy food.
Now the final step – adding egg mixture to the cooked vegetables along with a few sprigs of coriander (cilantro). When the eggs start to set, stir gently and continue cooking until you get beautiful, fluffy scrambled eggs.
Finally, the fluffy egg mixture gets wrapped up in tortillas or burritos. Just sprinkle a little parmesan on top of egg mixture before you roll them. A bit of cheese makes everything perfect. Right?
These make ahead breakfast burritos are now ready for freezing. Make a big batch (one egg of each burrito), and enjoy them as an easy brekkie or quick snack.
One last thing – if you don’t like tortillas, feel free to use any wraps you like, and even parathas or naan will make these rolls super delicious. You can also sauté chopped bacon in the oil just before you add the veggies. You see, maximum flavor.
