Breakfast Burrito Bites

Breakfast burrito bites- Healthy breakfast idea for healthy kids! 

Some mornings your kids just need a little something small, right?  These mini breakfast burritos are perfect for those kids who don’t like to eat breakfast, yet you want to get a little healthy food in their bellies. Eating breakfast can help prevent those moody fits caused by low blood sugar. (and what I mean by moody is being 10 and crying because you miss a stuffed animal you lost over 4 years ago).

Breakfast Burrito Bites. With bell peppers, eggs, and whole wheat tortillas, these burrito bites are the perfect breakfast for your kids.

So, the concept is easy enough.  We

  • sauteed some peppers.
  • Cooked an egg.
  • Rolled it in a whole wheat tortilla
  • And cut cross-ways like sushi.Breakfast Burrito Bites. With bell peppers, eggs, and whole wheat tortillas, these burrito bites are the perfect breakfast for your kids.

Recipe:

  • 3 tablespoon chopped bell peppers
  • 1 tsp. olive oil, or spray pan with non stick cooking spray
  • 3 eggs (whipped slightly in a bowl)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 (8 inch) Whole wheat tortillas

Cook peppers with oil or cooking spray. Remove peppers from pan.  Whisk eggs and water together.  Cook egg/water mixture over hot skillet, without scrambling them.  Move egg inward to cook although through, and flip, so you have a large “fried egg”.  Cut in half.  Place one egg on each tortilla.  Add peppers to the center of your tortilla and roll up.

We love peppers! Did you know:

  1. 1 cup of bell peppers have 300% of the RDA for vitamin C- vitamin C is perfect for immune support.
  2. 1 cup of bell peppers have 100% of the RDA for Vitamin A
  3. They are high in fiber, and kids today need more fiber.  Kids should eat 5 grams of fiber plus their age. So, a 4 year old would want at least 9 grams of fiber in a day.

This is a great recipe to start your kids day, so they can have some of those peppers!

We also love this breakfast because of the eggs! One egg has 300mcg of choline which is vital for developing brains! Plus, eggs are a great source of protein, offering all the essential amino acids your kids need to grow.

what a great idea! I will post my plate review tomorrow 🙂 Thank you again for sending! My kids LOVE it and I hope I refer some orders your way! Still up for giveaway? If they are back in stock?

Amy says:

Yes, we can still do a giveaway. The plates are IN Salt Lake in a wharehouse 30 minutes from my house and they won’t let me have them till they are cleared by customs! I’m so sad… I want them today! I actually should be able to get them cleared later today, or first thing tomorrow…. I’m hoping today 🙂

Jill says:

Great recipe- breakfast is so important. Also I love the photo- it’s so colorful and bright!

Amy says:

Thanks Jill! I just had Mindy from http://melindasmithphotography.blogspot.com/ over yesterday for a photography lesson at my house. She was fabulous, and I’m already so much happier with what I know now!

That’s a great idea. They look delicious, and I’m sure kids would enjoy them!

Vennesa says:

I like this idea Amy. I didn’t realize I was hungry until I saw these!

Those look really good and easy to make. I’ll have to try.

Traci says:

so, so, so glad that my daughter isn’t the only one who is going through mood swings right now.

Superfood Sisters says:

Great idea for breakfast!! My kids are hooked on cereal so I am always looking for different ideas to get them to have a healthier breakfast! And it’s something mommy will enjoy too!!

sara says:

looks so yummy

Amy says:

Traci… hopefully it’s a phase, right?
Super food sisters: My 12 year old is hooked on cereal too, however he must be having a growth spurt cause he’ll eat cereal PLUS anything I make. He can eat A LOT!!

CL Daniel says:

Those look really tasty!

Renee says:

What a great idea! These look great!!! I’m sure my kids will love them. Thanks.

Jeff says:

I guess I’m a little late on commenting here, but I just came across these. I love cooking for my grandchildren. I’m sure they’ll love the breakfast burritos, and they are quick and healthy, so I will love them too.

Ken says:

I know my kids would enjoy this recipe, I think I might make this tomorrow for breakfast.

Richard says:

Ever since I went to Texas, I’ve been in love with the breakfast burrito. A Great healthy meal for children and adults alike.

John Ward says:

Natalie

For one who counts breakfast the most important meals of the day, I just love the recipes and the pictures are so appealing.

You quote “Eating breakfast can help prevent those moody fits caused by low blood sugar.” – I know some adults who would need your breakfast.

Susanne says:

Amazing and inspring! 🙂 I am sure my kids love this recipe.

Tony Dalton says:

Delicious and easy! Doesn’t get much better.

Ess Bee says:

I tried this recipe for a party, and got great results. Just to get creative I fried up crispy potatoes (hashbrown style) and layered them into the burrito. They added great texture, I would definitely suggest it.

Terry Packer says:

Very easy, very healthy. Sounds like a winner to me!!!

Saba says:

What is the reason of fring egg in water

Amy says:

That should read- whisk the eggs and water together and then cook (I just edited it). I usually add a touch of water to my eggs.. I feel like it makes them fluffier.

Sinea says:

Wow! This looks yummy. I am on a low-carb diet and in a couple of weeks I will be adding back some carbs which will open the door for THIS recipe. :Pinning for the recipe. 🙂

Jamin says:

Ditch the water in the eggs. Water/milk doesn’t make eggs more fluffy or creamy. Proper medium low heat, whisking right before cooking, and constant stirring makes them fluffy verses flat.

Either way, great looking recipe that I will definitely try. Thanks for sharing!

Amy says:

@Jamin- just goes to show you how some cooking habits are born from just listening to others without questioning why!
Thanks for the advice!

Toni says:

you could do peanut butter and banana ones..or crushed fruit ones too.so many possibilities..ty
