Make Your Own: Breakfast Burritos

Here's what we had tonight.

Egg and Bacon Breakfast Burritos


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.
