Bacon breakfast burritos substitution ideas

If you're looking to make a substitution, look no further:

  • Low-carb tortillas: For this recipe, I use low-carb flour tortillas, but any form of tortilla will work just fine. You could use gluten-free, corn, flour, whatever!
  • Bacon: I absolutely am obsessed with bacon, but you could substitute any breakfast meat here and be just fine. Breakfast sausages chopped, ground pork, etc. 
  • Cheese: Pick any cheese. I love cheddar in this recipe, but you could use dairy-free, Mexican blend, pick your favorite one, or use whatever you have on hand. 
  • Toppings: Pick your personal favorites! Some starting ideas are: avocado, hot sauce, extra veggies, sour cream, green onions, and pickled red onions.

How to make bacon breakfast burrito recipe 

Here is the best way to make this delicious recipe! 

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add in slices of bacon.
  • Cook until bacon is cooked to preferred doneness. Move pieces of bacon to plate with a paper towel. Once bacon is cool enough, chop into small pieces.
  • Cut heat of skillet to low. Drain most of the excess grease.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together eggs, egg whites and seasonings.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Stir frequently and cook until eggs are cooked through scrambled.
  • Add the cooked pieces to the egg mixture.
  • Sprinkle the scramble mixture with plenty of cheese and let sit for about a minute, until melted. Turn off heat and let cool.
  • Lay out 8 tortillas.
  • Separate the scramble evenly into the tortillas.
  • Roll into sealed burritos.
  • Wrap burritos in aluminum foil and store in a sealed bag or airtight container in the fridge.

How to store and meal prep bacon breakfast burritos

To meal prep, make according to instructions. Wrap burritos in aluminum foil and store in a sealed bag or airtight container in the fridge. See below for instructions on how to freeze! 

How to reheat this recipe

No matter the time of day, when you're ready for your next meal, simply take out the burrito and reheat in the microwave until your desired temperature. Adding a damp paper towel on top of the burrito before you microwave will help seal in moisture. A frozen burrito will take longer to heat than one stored in the fridge. 

Don't forget to add your favorite toppings and different fillings after you've heated your burrito. Adding a side like a fruit salad or Greek yogurt would be delicious, too!

How to freeze breakfast burritos 

To freeze this healthy breakfast, wrap burritos in aluminum foil or parchment paper and then place in a freezer bag. Put in the freezer and use for up to 30 days! Here are some ideas on the best ways to reheat frozen burritos!
