Breakfast Burrito

Weight Watcher's breakfast burrito

POINTS® Value: 7
Servings: 2
Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy

Bacon and scrambled eggs are rolled up in tortillas, baked and then topped with sour cream and avocado. A nice change from a bowl of oatmeal.


2 serving(s) butter-flavor cooking spray
3 large egg white(s)
2 large egg(s)
2 slice(s) Canadian-style bacon, finely chopped
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/8 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
3 Tbsp salsa, drained of excess liquid before measuring
2 large burrito-size wheat flour tortilla(s)
4 Tbsp reduced-fat sour cream
1/8 medium avocado, ripe, cut into 2 wedges

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat.

In a large bowl, beat egg whites and eggs. Add bacon, oregano, salt, pepper and salsa; stir well.

Pour egg mixture into prepared skillet; increase heat to medium. Let eggs partially set and then scramble using a spatula. When eggs are set but still slightly glossy, remove from heat.

Spoon half of egg mixture into center of each tortilla. Roll tortilla to conceal filling, making sure to fold in ends. Place burritos, seam-side down, on prepared baking sheet. Bake until burritos are very hot, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve each burrito with 1 tablespoon sour cream and 1 slice avocado.

For a breakfast on the go, fill a toasted whole-wheat pita half with the scrambled egg mixture, sour cream and avocado.

I love breakfast burritos, but the ones I fix are definitely not this healthy. LOL Extra helpings of bacon (not the Canadian kind) and a pile of cheese definitely add the points. I was glad to find this recipe and can't wait to try it out.

Have a great day!!
Peace and love,

PS...I've found some work for Bubba to do around the house that doesn't even require typing. He starts tomorrow!!

Alannah, have you ever tried the Morning Star vegetarian bacon or sausage? Both are really tasty and would drop the points some(2 pieces of their bacon is 1 point and 1 sausage is either 1 or 2 points). I also use their meatless crumbles to replace ground beef in chili, spaghetti sauce, and soups.

So glad that Bubba could find work...that doesn't include typing.

Hey Liza...I haven't heard of Morning Star but, unfortunately, I have to go the grocery store today so I'll look.

I despise grocery shopping on a sunny day. We've gotten 8" of rain in the past 24 hours and it's still coming down. But...maybe that means no one else is at the store and I can slog my way in and get out quickly.

Thanks for the tip!!
