Cheesy Bacon Breakfast Burrito

There's no ONE right way to make a breakfast burrito. But if you follow these easy rules, you're guaranteed perfect results (that can cure any hangover!) every time.

1. Cook the potatoes in bacon fat.

All the best breakfast burritos have some sort of potato component (we love a double carb moment). To keep prep to an absolute minimum, we use frozen hash browns. Crisping them up in the bacon fat will lend them a great crunch and a touch of bacon-y flavor. if you're more into country-style, you can make our favorite pan-fried potatoes instead.

2. Season the eggs at the last minute.

According to Gordon Ramsay, adding salt in the beginning draws out moisture and makes eggs watery. So wait to do it until the very end.

3. Use a sharp, tangy, or spicy cheese.

Obviously cheddar is perfect because it melts nicely. But gouda (sharp), goat cheese (tangy), or pepper jack (spicy) work really too. Mild varieties like mozzarella or Monterey jack are totally acceptable but they don't add nearly as much flavor.

4. Don't use a cold tortilla.

It'll be really hard to fold and roll and will likely break on you. Warm or room temp makes things much easier. And if you're still struggling knowing how to do it, watch around :30 of this Cheesy Baked Burrito vid.

Scott’s Kitchen — Kansas City, Missouri

Barbecue aficionados might be familiar with Scott’s Kitchen, which competition barbecue man Scott Umscheid opened in 2017. While you’re sure to find meaty favorites like ribs, pulled pork, and brisket — along with sides such as BBQ beans and jalapeño apple slaw — Scott’s Kitchen is known for its large menu of tacos and burritos. The restaurant is close to the Kansas City airport, so stop in for a breakfast burrito when you land or before taking off. While you can’t go wrong with any meat to accompany the scrambled eggs, potatoes, and homemade salsa, we suggest trying the burnt ends or housemade chipotle ghost pepper sausage if you can take the heat.


At Taco Joint, there’s a breakfast taco option for pretty much everyone. Healthy eaters can go for egg whites and black beans with salsa, or go all-out with refried beans, potatoes, eggs, and plenty of glorious cheese. Don’t sleep on the spicy braised pork and egg taco, either.

It might be a tiny taqueria, but La Ventana is a pretty massive taco operation. The breakfast tacos here are served on tortillas made freshly every single damn day, and that may be the most important part of the equation. Fill one with scrambled eggs, chorizo or bacon and potato, resulting in a killer breakfast taco for $1.50, or a delicious breakfast burrito for just $4.


Best Breakfast Burrito


Since moving to Texas, I’ve fallen in love with the breakfast taco and all of its many possibilities. But these Best Breakfast Burritos by ever-entertaining TK member Bev Weidner caught my eye because of the beautiful mound of spinach on top. That is not something I’ve tried before and I decided it was time. But what is great about these is that they are really your canvas to throw on whatever you love—that’s what makes them delicious.


You will need: olive oil, spinach, egg, tortilla, shredded cheese, hot sauce, salt and pepper, and cilantro or other herbs to garnish. (Plus I added a little something extra that you’ll see later, because I couldn’t help it. That’s just how it goes with these.)


Sprinkle some cheese on a tortilla and pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds.


Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat and let the spinach wilt for about 1-2 minutes. Give it a little sprinkle of salt and pepper as you do.


Place it in a nice pile onto your warm tortilla.


Then, remove the pan from the heat and crack your egg into it.


I like this method because if the pan is cool enough, you can scramble it without having to whisk it in a bowl first. No extra dirty dishes!


Add the cooked egg to your warm tortilla.


Then, because I couldn’t help myself, I added avocado. Because I need to. But you can do what moves you.


Sprinkle on your favorite hot sauce!



I overstuffed it, I know. But that’s what napkins are for.

Thanks so much to Bev for this inspiring breakfast dish! Check out her website Bev Cooks for more tasty treats.

3. Amy's Kitchen Breakfast Burrito

It&aposs worth noting that the Amy&aposs Kitchen brand was the most common brand that I found in my search (21 stores spread over two evenings spent in a host of different neighborhoods in Brooklyn). It&aposs abundance gave me some hope that it would the surprise best burrito. It wasn&apost the best one, but it was, of the three sampled, easily the best vegan option. The flour tortilla was still pretty soggy after the microwave/cooling period (the instructions called for placing it on a plate and covering it with another plate), but the salsa and beans mask the bland rubberiness of the tofu and the potatoes are diced into little cubes that provide some resistance to each bite. It&aposs the McDonald&aposs of frozen breakfast burritos, but McDonald&aposs is pretty good at what it does.
