Breakfast on the go

Ok. So on this new morning routine, I have been struggling a little bit for breakfast. I have been doing a variety of thing from Lean Pocket breakfast pockets to making my own breakfast burritos. These are ok but I get tired of having the same thing every morning so I am up for more ideas. I need something I can grab and go or stick in the microwave for a couple of minutes and run out the door. I don’t have time for a bowl of cereal and I just can’t grab a banana or a granola bar. If I did, then I would be hungry by the time I got to the gym.

I will post my breakfast burrito recipe here now 🙂

3 eggs, either scrambled or egg beaters
2 slices ham
1/4 cup of shredded cheese
about 1/2 cup of frozen onion/pepper mix (it has green, red and yellow peppers mixed together)
2 whole wheat tortilla shells

I put the onion and pepper mix in the skillet along with the ham to start heating up. I then add the eggs and cook until pretty much done through. I then flip the whole thing over (easier said than done ) 🙂 I then heat the tortilla shells for about 30 seconds in the microwave. After the eggs are done, I add half of the cheese to each shell and scoop half of the eggs on each shell. I then fold the burritos and put them on a plate and cover them in put in the fridge for the morning. In the morning I will remove the cover and put in the microwave for about 2 minutes and grab and go 🙂

I want to maybe try some turkey sausage in place of the ham some time.

So, what’s your favorite breakfast on the go solutions. Share for the world 🙂

  • I love this recipe!
    OK, so in the summer, mine is to go the smoothie route.
    One cup plain yogurt.
    2 TB honey.
    One cup ice cubes.
    Fresh fruit of your choice.
    One cup of either fruit juice or milk.
    Add in a dash of wheat germ or fiber mix solution.

    Oh, and I know this is extreme, but I make my own yogurt, using the types of yogurt makers they use in France and Greece. The cool thing is that you can buy these for about $20 in Wal-mart. They make 8 pints, and the yogurt is very different from what you buy in the store. But it’s very simple, and once you get used to the difference in American vs. European/Greek yogurt, you won’t ever go back. The nice thing about it is that you can sweeten it with honey or your fav fruit … or use it as a sub for sour cream on potatoes and other “sour cream” recipes.

  • Thanks for the recipe. 🙂 One of these days I might have try one. Just not a huge yogurt fan right now.
