Breakfast Burritos with Egg Tortillas (gf/paleo)

on

New recipe, fresh off the griddle, literally. This morning I had an idea to try making a tortilla out of eggs because we didn’t have any large tortillas/wraps and guess what… it works! I’m probably more excited about this than I should be but, whatever.

These tortillas are made from eggs and a splash of cashew milk (you can use whatever milk you prefer) so they are naturally suited for gluten-free, vegetarian, paleo, grain-free, keto, and low-carb diets.

We were also surprised at how sturdy these egg tortillas are — not a single split or tear while eating. That’s impressive! Eric even wrapped his with a nice closed end like a pro.

If you want to try a breakfast burrito like the ones pictured here, we simply filled the cooked egg tortillas with whatever veggies (sautéed red bell pepper, shredded sweet potato, and garlic) we had on hand plus some fresh greens, salsa, and scrambled egg. It was a lot of egg-on-egg action but I’m not mad about it. If you’re not into the idea of filling your eggs with more eggs, you could definitely go to town stuffing your burrito with lots of veggies instead.

I can’t wait to try using egg tortillas for dinnertime burritos too! Like I said, probably more excited than I should be. Recording how to make Egg Tortillas and how to make Breakfast Burritos (as pictured) separately down below so we can easily make them together or separate in the future.

Enjoy,
