Low Carb Breakfast Burrito Recipe


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  This (ridiculously simple) recipe is a low carb twist on a tradition breakfast burrito.   Instead of using a whole wheat wrap (like I used to), I use deli slices of ham!  

First, prepare 1-2 eggs whichever style you prefer.  I recommend sticking to a traditional fried egg (over easy or over medium), as opposed to scrambled, so that the burrito stays together a little easier. 

To make the wrap larger, combine two pieces of ham by laying them about halfway to a quarter on top of each other. Next, place the cooked eggs and spinach on top of the ham. Roll the burrito up lengthwise.  That way the two pieces of ham remain together.

Feel free to add any sauces you like such as hot sauce, ketchup, or even salsa.  Let me know how it turns out! Enjoy!

  2. 1/4 cup spinach
  3. 2 deli cut slices of ham
  1. 1. Cook eggs to your liking (over easy/medium recommended)
  2. 2. Lay out two pieces of ham. Overlap the pieces about 1/2-1/4 of the way down so that the ham does not separate when it is wrapped.

  4. 4. Roll up the ham lengthwise so that two pieces do not separate.
  5. 5. Enjoy!

[…] For those of you who are cutting out carbs, this recipe is a great way to still enjoy a classic burrito. Using a lunch meat like ham as a tortilla, stuff it with sautéed veggies and eggs, and whatever else you’d like to add. After you roll up your burrito, place it back on the a skillet to cook on each side so the ham gets slightly crispy. This breakfast contains the burst of protein you need to start your day.

These ideas look great!I use an egg cooker in the microwave, made by Nordic. Holds one or two. A great site for gluten free is Kumquat. Gretchen BrownR.D. also has a great cookbook.
