  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheese I like cheddar or colby jack
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup any additional add-ins you like optional


  • Line a baking sheet  with parchment paper and lay the tortillas out on it.  Turn the oven on to 350 degrees.
  • Sprinkle each tortilla with ¼ cup cheese (or more if you like 😉)
  • Put the baking sheet into the oven and let the cheese melt while you scramble the eggs
  • In a large frying pan, scramble the eggs to your liking (see the notes section for my perfectly soft scrambled method)
  • Take the baking sheet out of the oven, divide the scrambled eggs onto the four melty cheesy burritos and add an other ingredients you would like.
  • Fold the burrito bottom up, tuck in the sides and roll finishing with the seam on the bottom
  • Either return the burritos to the sheet pan and put in the oven for 5 minutes to brown up OR put into a dry skillet and brown on both sides.
  • Cut in half, serve with salsa (or guacamole) and enjoy!


For perfectly scrambled eggs:  Break the eggs into a mixing bowl, whisk them together really well.  Pour them into a hot nonstick skillet that has been generously buttered. Cook them on high heat for about 30 seconds and then turn heat down to medium and stir with a spatula until you have perfectly scrambled eggs. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
