First of all, is a burrito still a burrito if the ends aren’t tucked in? That is the question. I’m learning toward yes, at least with these breakfast burritos (ok, and my other sweet potato burritos). I always pull of that extraneous tucked-in tortilla part before I take my first bite of burrito, anyway. Filling or bust!
Moving on. I have been stepping up my breakfast game lately. For the longest time, I was content eating plain yogurt with some fruit for breakfast. Then I started making my own granola and my old standby lost its appeal. That granola crunch is so necessary!
Then, I ran out of granola and started testing waffles for my pal Erin’s forthcoming cookbook. I froze all those waffles and got in the habit of eating a waffle with nut butter and maple syrup for breakfast. Eventually, I ran out of her waffles, which was incentive to play around with oat flour waffles (success!).
And here we are with breakfast burritos. I love that I can freeze them for future breakfasts, because breakfast is essential and, therefore, best kept simple. I never (ever ever ever) skip breakfast, but the general consensus amongst breakfast skippers seems to be that they run out of time or supplies. Enter the breakfast burrito. I’d call these guys breakfast backups or grab-and-go options, but they’re so good, they just might become your default breakfast option.
