Breakfast Burritos

For years, I’ve wanted to find out how restaurants made such fluffy scrambled eggs; I was never able to get it just right.  I persevered & this recipe uses the best, and fluffiest, scrambled eggs.

 

(makes 2 burritos)

2 eggs

1 egg yolk (save the white for another use)

1 1/2 tablespoon Melt (or your favorite butter substitute)

Salt & pepper to taste

2 large tortillas

about 1/4 to 1/2 cup Daiya shreds (I used cheddar, but any will do – or mix them for a different flavor)

Optional:  Bacon, sausage, veggies, etc.

 

Over low heat (or in microwave), melt 1/2 tablespoon Melt (just until melted, warm, but not hot).  Combine eggs & yolk, beating well; add melted Melt, whisking the entire time.  Salt and pepper to taste.  In a skillet over medium heat, add remaining Melt & allow it to cook down a bit, evaporating some of the moisture.  When pan is hot & Melt has cooked down, add egg mixture to pan.  Allow to cook 15-30 seconds, lower heat to low, and using wooden spoon or silicone spatula, carefully scrape up the cooked egg, just so it doesn’t burn.  The less the eggs are handled, the more fluffed they will be.  Once mostly cooked through, remove from heat and continue to scrape bottom just until cooked through.  Heat tortillas; divide the eggs between each & then add the shreds, roll up and enjoy!

If you desire, you could add crumbled bacon, sausage or veggies to the eggs for a heartier meal.

 

For a freezer or crowd cooking (makes approximately a dozen):

2 dozen eggs, cracked into a bowl & every 3rd egg, only add yolk (set whites aside for another use) & well beaten

1 1/2 cube melt

salt and pepper to taste

12 -14 tortillas

1-2 packages Daiya shreds

 

Melt 1 cube Melt in saucepan over the lowest heat, just until melted (warm, but not hot).  Pour into beaten eggs, whisking the entire time.  Add remaining Melt to skillet & proceed as per above.

If freezing, place in freezer bags & freeze, they should last a week or two like this.  For long-term storage, wrap in freezer paper before placing in freezer bag.  They should last about a month.

 

 

For just scrambled eggs, prepare the eggs & enjoy!

 

For an omelette, add your favorite items to the whisked eggs & cook through.

 

Enjoy!
