Print this recipe
If you need the perfect breakfast to go, the recipe below is where it's at! This burrito is filled with spicy homefried potatoes, scrambled eggs, and just enough cheese. And it's easy to make these the night before, stash them in the fridge, and reheat them in the oven or microwave in the morning!
If you want to make your life even easier, you could also swap in frozen home fries in place of homemade, but this recipe is so simple (and worth it) that once you've tried it, you'll be happy you did.

Scrambled Egg and Potato Breakfast Burrito
4
15 minutes
30 minutes
45 minutes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large potato, cubed
1 small onion, small-diced
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon butter
8 large eggs
4 large flour tortillas
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
salt and pepper
Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the potato and onion, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is browned and the potato is cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.
Season the potatoes with the spices, toss to combine, and set aside.
Heat the butter in a nonstick pan over low heat. Break the eggs into a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and beat well. Add the eggs to the pan. Cook without stirring for one minute, then use a wooden spatula to carefully stir, forming large curds in the eggs. When the eggs are mostly cooked but still moist, remove from the heat.
Microwave a flour tortilla for 1 minute. Place on a work surface and add a spoonful of potatoes, forming a line down the center. Top with a spoonful of eggs, a quarter of the tomatoes, and a quarter of the cheese.
Roll the burritos: fold up one end, then roll and fold down the other end to seal. Serve with your favorite hot sauce or salsa.
If you'd like to save the burritos, wrap them in aluminum foil (to reheat in the oven) or parchment paper (to reheat in the microwave) and store in the fridge. Heat in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 10 minutes or in the microwave for one minute.
