Denver Omelet Breakfast Burritos

Yum...this makes a great quick breakfast.  The breakfast burritos are made ahead of time, frozen and then they can be reheated as needed.

Here is my version of a Denver omelet with cheese breakfast burrito.

Start with:
egg whites
Laughing Cow Cheese

Sautee the chopped onions and green pepper.  I used about one half of each one.

Add enough egg whites for the servings to match the number of burritos you have.  Mix in the ham and cook until the eggs are done:

Once the egg mixture is cooked, you can start filling your burritos.  I use Laughing Cow light cheese.  I use half a triangle of cheese for each burrito.  I spread it on the burrito:

Add some of the egg mixture:

Roll it one time, then you have to wrap the ends in and finish rolling.  You can see the finished burritos in the background:

Once all the burritos are done, wrap each one of them in plastic wrap and put into a freezer bag in the freezer:

To reheat frozen burritos:
Take one out of the freezer and unwrap.  Wrap a paper towel around it and heat in  the microwave 1-2 minutes until hot.  Turn it over half way.

My breakfast with some salsa on the side and fresh strawberries.

Breakfast burritos can be made with any combinations that you like.  Try it your way to have a quick and hearty breakfast on hand.


  1. Lisa, add a little (or a lot) of green chile to your burrito/omelet mixture. You can use either hot, medium or mild. It will add a whole new flavor!

    1. Good idea. Thank you. I may have to stick with the mild:)
