Low-Carb Bacon & Broccoli Egg Burrito

From: EatingWell.com, October 2018

Instead of wrapping up eggs in a tortilla for a classic breakfast burrito, we're wrapping up veggies and bacon in a tortilla made out of eggs. Just whip up an easy omelet and nestle your cooked veggies inside to slash the carbs in this healthy, gluten-free burrito.

  • 1 slice bacon
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • ¼ cup chopped tomato
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat milk
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon canola or avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Cook bacon in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, turning once or twice, until crisp, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Add broccoli to the pan and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir in tomato and transfer to a small bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk egg, milk, scallion, salt and pepper in another bowl. When the vegetables are cooked, wipe out the skillet. Add oil and heat over medium heat. Add the egg mixture, tilting to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook, undisturbed, until set on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Using a thin, wide silicone spatula, carefully flip the egg "tortilla." Sprinkle with cheese and cook until completely set, about 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate. Fill the lower half of the "tortilla" with the broccoli mixture and top with the bacon. Carefully roll into a "burrito."

Flavors were great. It isn't a quick breakfast, however. I also agree with a previous reviewer on the "burrito" part. It is an omelet.

This has good flavors and is nicely filling, but I don't understand the "burrito" part. Next time I'll just lightly scramble the eggs instead.

This was delicious! Only issue is the time/prep it takes to make. I'm always in hurry out the door in the mornings so this is a better recipe when I have more time in the weekends.
