Inspired by a TikTok hack, this Egg Burrito recipe is the ultimate weekday breakfast idea. This 10-minute breakfast recipe is savory, crunchy, and a total upgrade from cold cereal or a crumbly granola bar.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil for easy cleanup. Coat a small non-stick skillet with non-stick spray and heat over medium-high heat.
In a small bowl whisk together two eggs and salt and pepper to taste (I like 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper). Add egg mixture to heated skillet and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon chives and 2 tablespoons shredded cheese.
Cook, without moving the eggs, until they are almost set, about 2 minutes. Use a rubber spatula to gently release the eggs from the side of the pan.
Place tortilla on top of the eggs and cook for 30 seconds longer. Flip tortilla and egg together, then cook until eggs are set, about 30 seconds to 1 minute longer.
Using a spatula, gently fold over 1/3rd of the tortilla, and fold over once more to create the burrito. Continue to cook to toast tortilla, about 30 seconds longer.
Flip and cook for 30 seconds more. Transfer the burrito from the pan to the prepared baking sheet and place in oven. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make a second burrito. Serve with sour cream, salsa, and minced fresh chives.
Shredded cheese: Cheddar, Monterey Jack, or pepper Jack; any will do.
Flour tortillas: The regular 8-inch style is ideal for this use. If you can only find the burrito-sized 10-inch kind, add an egg and use 1 tablespoon chives and ⅓ cup shredded cheese for two slightly larger portions. Sorry, corn tortillas won’t work for this Egg Burrito recipe; they tend to crack when you try to fold them the TikTok food trend way.
Yield: This recipe yields 2 egg burritos. Repeat the same instructions below to make several tortillas to multiply this recipe desired for meal prep or to feed the family.
Storage: Transfer any leftover Egg Burritos to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Make ahead: Assemble the Egg Burritos up to 3 days in advance, then tightly in plastic wrap and foil and refrigerate. When you’re ready to enjoy, unwrap and reheat an Egg Burrito in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the filling reaches 165 degrees on a digital thermometer. Alternatively, reheat in a 375 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
Freezer: Wrap Egg Burritos tightly in plastic wrap and foil, then freeze for up to 3 months.
