Egg and Cheese Breakfast Burrito

I found this recipe in the Sunday Newspaper  on 02/13/11 and recently rediscovered it in one of my paper piles. This is a super easy Microwave recipe! The article credits

1 flour tortilla
1 Egg (you could use egg beaters)
1 tbspoon 2% cheese
1 tbspoon salsa

LINE 2-cup microwave-safe cereal bowl with microwave-safe paper towel.PRESS tortilla into bowl. 

BREAK egg into center of tortilla. BEAT egg gently with a fork until blended, being careful not to tear tortilla. ( I beat mine in a separate bowl!)                  
                                                                                                                                                                   MICROWAVE on HIGH 30 seconds; stir. (I didnt stir mine!) MICROWAVE until egg is almost set, 15 to 30 seconds longer.

REMOVE tortilla with paper towel liner from bowl to flat surface. TOP egg with cheese and salsa. FOLD bottom of tortilla over egg, then fold in sides.

Yummers. 5-6 PointsPlus Depending on your cheese! :)


  1. Cool Angie...I never knew I could 'nuke' eggbeaters!! You just reminded me of a freebie Egg beaters Q I received!!

  2. My kids used to live on microwave eggwhites. They loved them and it's an excellent source of protein. I am not a huge fan of eggyolds microwaved, though. Is there a lower calorie tortilla?

  3. I am sure there is a lower cal tortilla than this! I got these for free from Bilo so I am slowly working on using them up. These arent too bad, nutritional stats: 80 cal, 2 fat, 14 carbs, 1 fiber & 2 protein :) HTH!

  4. I cannot wait to try this. I have to make a commissary run to get some more tortilla wraps. Ran out of them today. I bet my kids would love this too.
