10-Minute Breakfast Burritos for 2

Nothing like a delicious breakfast that comes together in less than 10 minutes am I right?

Breakfast burritos are perfect for leftover baked or roasted potatoes or home fries but you can also cook some up quick. You can include any extras like veggies or protein (sausage, ham, bacon). Get creative with the cheese as well! Cheddar is obviously classic but pepper jack, provolone, blue cheese, and goat cheese are AMAZING as well.

This recipe feeds two people or one very hungry person. If you want you can double or triple it for easy to reheat leftovers! These also freeze well and can be reheated in the toaster oven or microwave.

Fueling notes:

  • Per serving, this recipe packs 43 g of carbs, 18 g of protein, and 19 g of fat, and 3 g of fiber
  • Pre-workout: have at least 2 hours before your session to give you enough time to digest. Add extra carbs or have a pre-session carb snack if possible.
  • Post-workout: this recipe is close to the ideal 3-4:1 ratio of carbs to protein. Have post-workout meal within 1-2 hours of your session.

The Stuff

  • Drizzle of vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 medium-large potato diced and or 1 cup leftovers
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2, 8-inch tortillas


  • Protein: ham, Canadian bacon, bacon (turkey or regular), sausage (chicken/turkey or regular)*
  • Veggies: mushrooms, onions, peppers, spinach, tomatoes)

*Limit red meat to no more than two servings per week for heart health as it’s high in saturated fat!

The Steps

  1. Drizzle oil in a skillet and add leftover potatoes
  2. If you don’t have any leftover potatoes, cook diced potato in a covered skillet until soft (~10 minutes)
  3. Add in eggs and any other ingredients and scramble over medium heat
  4. When finished, add cheese, cover with a lid, and cook for another minute or two
