Easy and Quick Breakfast Burrito

Total Time 20 mins
Servings 1 burrito


  • ½ teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ onion finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons skimmed milk
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • 2 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped thick ham
  • ¼ ripe avocado diced


  • Drizzle the olive oil into a small frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the chopped onion for 5 minutes, until soft.
  • Pour the milk into the pan and crack in the egg. Quickly stir the ingredients in the pan together with a fork, making a scrambled egg and onion mixture. Make sure you crack the yolk of the egg so that you get scrambled eggs and not an ordinary fried egg!
  • Season with salt and pepper and carry on stirring for 2-3 minutes until you've got light and fluffy scrambled eggs.
  • Whilst the egg is cooking, sprinkle the cheddar cheese in a thick line down the centre of the tortilla and place the chopped ham on top.
  • Layer the cooked scrambled egg-onion mixture on top of the ham and top with the diced avocado.
  • Roll the tortilla up into the shape of a burrito (Learn how to wrap an awesome burrito here) and add it crease-side-down back into the frying pan. Don't add any more oil.
  • Cook the burrito for 2-3 minutes on each side until the outsides are golden brown and the inside is piping hot.
  • Cut the burrito in halve and serve immediately.
