Lukes Favorite — 4 Minute Kids Egg Burrito Breakfast
fried egg burito
This is my son Lucas’s favorite breakfast before school. I love it because it only takes 1 fry pan, one spatula and 1 plate – so there is not much to clean up and no matter how rushed we are in the morning there is always time to prepare this hot nutritious breakfast. Also depending on the age of your child they may even be able to prepare it themselves.

My son love the tortilla heated in the pan because you can make it crispy and it fluffs up a bit too! This nutritious breakfast keep him going all morning. It’s total brain food!!!

My favorite part of the recipe is —- hardly any cleanup! Only 1 pan, 1 spatula and 1 plate.

Utensils needed:
One fry pan
One spatula
One plate

Small slice of butter
One large egg (I always use the Omega 3’s for extra nutrition and less saturated fat).
One slice ham (Preferably the Boars Head Brand without nitrates)
One tortilla

Step 1. Heat fry pan on medium heat and place small slice of butter in pan.
Step 2. Take the spatula and spread the melted butter around the pan.
Step 3. Crack the egg and put it in the pan. Take your spatula and bang the yolk to break it. When it is cooked almost all the way through flip it over with the spatula. Now throw put the slide of ham in the pan. When thoroughly cooked remove ham and egg from pan and place on the plate.
Step 4. Put tortilla in the pan. After about 30 seconds flip it to warm it on the other side. Remove from pan when warm and slightly toasted.
Step 5. Put the egg and ham in the middle of the tortilla and roll it up.

For some extra nutrition. Wash a handful of berries and serve them on the side.

Also, If you are really in a hurry this transports easily in the car on the way to school. Just wrap in a napkin or piece of foil.
