The House of Cyn Breakfast Burrito

January 30, 2012

I have to say I have been rocking with my diet lately – I am so proud of myself. I really feel as though the Whole 30 has changed my life! I seriously have NO cravings whatsoever for anything other than REAL food! I have been more motivated than ever to cook and eat real food, it’s awesome.

I have become much  more creative using my leftovers then I ever knew I could be. This Breakfast Burrito is the perfect example.

Although I would like to take credit for the original idea, I can’t. I saw it somewhere else, I just can’t remember where (the danger of owning 5 paleo cookbooks, and subscribing to too many paleo blogs).

Here’s how I made mine:

First, it started because I was baking some bacon in the oven to have with some chard later on in the day. I decided I would steal a couple of pieces for my breakfast.

The “tortilla” – I just beat 2 free range eggs with about 1-2 tbsp of water until it was light and fluffy and poured it into a heated skillet  that was slightly oiled with EVOO. I cooked it with the lid on until it looked like a nice flat tortilla. I didn’t even need to flip it.  It slid right out of the pan onto a plate.

The filling – In the same skillet I heated some leftover “taco” filling that we had on a salad the night before. To the filling I added 2 chopped up pieces of cooked bacon. The leftover taco filling was basically about 1/2 cup of:

cooked grassfed ground beef sauteed with onion and some red pepper with chili powder, black pepper and garlic and a bit of cumin.

Once the filling was heated I spread some (about 1tbsp)  homemade guacamole (basically avocado, lemon juice and garlic) on the tortilla, put my filling on, and dabbed 2-3 tsp of salsa on top and rolled it up nice!

The end result was seriously yummy!
