Don’t know how to fill that morning craving? Look no further than this delicious, protein packed burrito!



Beef mix

500g beef mince1/2 onion, diced1/3 tsp cayenne pepper1/2 tsp chilli powder1/3 tsp ground cumin1 clove crushed garlic3 tbsp ketchup

Scrambled eggs

6 eggs1/2 tbsp butter1/2 tbsp cream cheese4 large tortillas (8 to 10 inch)2 tomatoes, diced250g grated cheeseSpring onion, thinly sliced


  1. Heat oil in a medium pan then fry onions until golden. Add the beef mince and garlic and fry on medium heat till meat is browned.
  2. Add the remaining beef mix ingredients and cook covered on low heat for around 20 minutes.
  3. When the beef mixture is almost ready, beat the eggs and cream cheese in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Melt the butter in a non stick pan on medium to low heat then add the egg mixture. Cook the eggs slowly, mixing constantly until golden and still a bit runny. Take out of the pan.

To assemble the burrito:

  • Soften the tortilla by placing on a hot pan for a few seconds.
  • Lay tortilla flat and layer cheese, meat, scrambled egg mixture, tomatoes and spring onions.
  • Wrap the tortilla and place on a medium hot pan to seal the edges and toast all sides.


  • A sandwich press is a great alternative to seal your burrito, saving the sometimes awkward ‘burrito flip’ in the pan.
  • Pimp your burrito by adding some fresh guacamole, sour cream or baby spinach.
