Breakfast Burrito Recipe Ingredients
- 4 Eggs
- 2 Chicken Sausages
- 4-6 Ripe plum tomatoes
- 1/2 Red onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 Red chilli, finely chopped
- 1/2 Lime, juiced
- 1 tbsp. Coriander, chopped
- 1 Avocado
- 2 Large seeded or wholemeal wraps
Breakfast Burrito Recipe Method
1. First, make the salsa. Combine the tomatoes, onions and chilli in a bowl, squeeze over the lime juice and stir in the coriander. Set aside to allow the flavours to meld.
2. Grill the sausages for 8-10 minutes, turning every so often so they don’t burn. Set aside.
3. In a small saucepan, melt a knob of butter. Whisk the eggs in a jug and pour into the pan. Stir over a low heat until lightly scrambled – take them off the heat when they are still very slightly underdone and as they will continue to cook.
4. Peel, stone and chop the avocado. Lay out the wraps.
5. On each wrap, lay half the eggs along the middle leaving a little space along the left-hand edge. Lay a halved sausage (or two) over the eggs, then spoon on the avocado and salsa.
5. Fold in each side of the wrap then take the long end in front of you and wrap forward to enclose the filling and the fold on the left.

Breakfast Burrito Recipe-Healthy Protein & Good For Building Muscle
Chicken sausages are a great alternative to the regular pork variety, offering a much leaner protein source, but if you can’t find them it is fine to use normal pork bangers – be sure to buy the best quality you can afford, with a minimum 70% meat content – or even vegetarian ones.
There are so many different benefits in the ingredients in this burrito, but we especially love the muscle building and good fats that you get from our featured ingredient, the amazing avocado.
Featured Ingredient: Avocado
The amazing avocado is a muscle building food! Once upon a time avocados were kept out of muscle building diets, but not anymore. They have a unique combination of 20 different nutrients, which are essential for us. The type of fat that they have, mono-unsaturated fat, can actually move fat away from you mid-section.
On top of everything else, avocados contain mannoheptulose – this is a sugar that actually dulls insulin release. Why is this good? Because high insulin levels lead to fat storage, and even eventually to diabetes.
