Sometimes in the morning I can’t decide what I want for breakfast, mostly because I want it all: bacon, eggs, veggies, cheese, spiciness.
Well I have the best solution for those mornings, throw all the ingredients that you are craving into a breakfast burrito!
That is precisely what I did this morning, adding bacon, eggs, peppers, scallions, shiitake mushrooms and goat cheese all together and topping it with a drizzle of chipotle sauce.
Of course us Paleors don’t want to ruin these lovely ingredients by wrapping them up in a tortilla so instead we use my favourite alternative butter lettuce.
These were a little messy to eat but it wouldn’t be a true burrito experience if it were neat and tidy, so just enjoy it and clean up the plate after with a spoon!
You can really get creative when making this breakfast. I basically looked into the fridge and saw what kind of foods I felt like.
I am a big fan of fresh dill so I made sure to add that into the mix and lately I have been on a goat cheese phase and I have yet to find a dish that isn’t improved by its creamy texture and unctuous taste.
