Vegetarian breakfast burritos make for a fun breakfast if you're bored of the usual cereal or pancakes, and kids love them too. This vegetarian breakfast burrito recipe with eggs, salsa and cheese is very basic, so you can always add extra spices or vegetables or whatever you want, but keeping i basic keeps it quick and easy for busy mornings. This recipe is just for one vegetarian breakfast burrito, so double the amounts if you need to make more.

I added a dash of hot sauce and some scallions to my breakfast burrito, just because I had some on hand.

Wondering about whether or not vegetarians eat eggs? Here's more on the debate as to whether eggs are vegetarian or not, plus add your own opinion here.


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil or butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp salsa
  • 1 flour tortilla


In a small bowl, whisk the eggs together with the milk until well beaten and season with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil or butter in a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Carefully add the eggs. Cook, mixing frequently, until you have scrambled eggs of the desired consistency.

Warm the flour tortilla in the microwave for a few seconds just until warm and soft. Place the scambled eggs in the center of the flour tortilla, and top with cheese and salsa.

Wrap and enjoy your vegetarian breakfast burrito!
