Low-Carb Bacon & Broccoli Egg Burrito


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 "burrito"


  • 1 slice bacon

  • 1 cup chopped broccoli

  • ¼ cup chopped tomato

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat milk

  • 1 scallion, sliced

  • teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 teaspoon canola or avocado oil

  • 2 tablespoons shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


  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."

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
