Gluten-Free Breakfast Burrito

Just because I eat gluten-free doesn’t mean breakfast can’t be fun. A Gluten-Free Breakfast Burrito made from Food for Life Brown Rice Tortilla, as per recipe, has 260 calories and 1 gram of fiber. Or enjoy it with one cup of mixed berries for a complete breakfast of 330 calories and 9 grams of fiber.

All–American Gluten–Free Breakfast Burrito

Serves 2

3 large eggs
1 tablespoon nonfat milk, soy milk, water, or olive oil
1 teaspoon butter (or butter substitute) for frying
Freshly ground black pepper
2 pieces of cooked crispy bacon (humanely raised)—optional
1 ounce cheese (such as sharp cheddar, Swiss, or Havarti)—optional
1 Food For Life Brown Rice Tortilla, cut in half

  1. Preheat a small, non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs with the milk for 30 seconds.
  2. Melt the butter in the frying pan. As the very last of the butter liquefies, add the egg mixture. Reduce the heat to medium.
  3. Do not stir immediately; instead, wait until the first hint of setting begins. Using a spatula or a flat wooden spoon, push the eggs toward the center of the pan while tilting the pan to redistribute any of the remaining liquid.
  4. When the eggs are moist on top and set on the bottom, carefully fold half the eggs on top of the other half, or roll the eggs over. For an easy, non-traditional omelet, carefully turn the eggs over and cook an additional 30 seconds. Season with pepper and evenly divide in half.
  5. While the eggs are cooking, divide the cheese evenly and place in the middle of each tortilla half. Lightly toast in toaster oven until cheese melts. Place each tortilla on a lunch-size plate and top with bacon slice and eggs. Roll and enjoy.

Variations

  • For an egg-white scramble, use 6 egg whites in place of the 3 large eggs.

    Thanks for the great recipe! Not sure if you ever tried La Tortilla Factory Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Wraps. I use their Low Carb Tortillas to make our breakfast burritos along with other meals such as pizzas, different wraps (Veggie, turkey, fruit..etc) all the time and just love their wraps. They taste great!

    Just in case your interested their Wheat and Gluten Free Wraps are made from Millet and Teff and have 15g of whole grains per serving. They have them available in flavors of Ivory and Dark Teff.

    Hope this helps and again thanks for the great recipe!

    If you are interested, we list one of my favorite recipes (Italian Veggie Pizza) on our site. These tortillas are a perfect size for pizza too!

    They seem to be in most supermarkets and I also heard that some Costco stores also sell them. Thanks for great post and forward to reading more!
    Hope you like the recipe and goodluck finding the tortillas. 🙂
