“This burrito makes a satisfying and comforting breakfast. I often make extra mashed potatoes just to have this burrito the next morning.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Warm a large skillet (big enough to hold burrito size tortilla) over medium heat.
  2. Butter (1T or so) can be added to the skillet to help brown the tortilla and give the outside more flavor and crispness, but I always just warm it in a dry (no butter or oil) skillet.
  3. Spread mashed potatoes down the center of tortilla.
  4. Place the tortilla in warm skillet, mashed potato side up.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on potatoes.
  6. Sprinkle bacon pieces on cheese.
  7. Spread scrambled eggs on top of bacon.
  8. Top with salsa and sour cream.
  9. If you like your tortilla soft, slide it out of the pan onto a plate as soon as it is warm. Roll and eat.
  10. If you prefer your tortilla crunchy, continue to cook until it starts to brown, slide out of the pan onto a plate and roll imediatly.
