    Serves: 6 

    • 6 eggs
    • 50g finely chopped streaky bacon, cooked
    • 30g butter
    • 85g Cheddar cheese, diced
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 6 flour tortillas
    • salsa to serve (optional)

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:8min 

    1. Whisk eggs together in a bowl; stir in cooked bacon.
    2. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook and stir until eggs are completely set, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cheese, salt and pepper.
    3. Wrap tortillas in damp kitchen paper or tea towel; microwave until warmed through, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    4. Spoon about 4 tablespoons of egg mixture into the centre of each tortilla; fold sides to cover. Serve with salsa, if liked.


    Top with cubed avocado, halved cherry tomatoes and chopped fresh coriander.
    For a vegetarian version, cook some chopped red or green pepper and mushrooms in the butter first before adding the eggs.
    Make use of leftovers by using leftover cubed ham or shredded roast beef instead of the bacon.

    I love it so much!!!!  -  27 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Good variation on breakfast for dinner. We are not fans of American cheese, so we substituted cheddar instead. We also made fresh pico de gallo for this.  -  15 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love these. This is one of my favorite breakfasts. We call foods wrapped in flour tortillas, burritos and in corn tortillas they are tacos. Bacon and egg (no cheese) is my "go to". Sometimes, I like to cut up some Spanish chorizo or some Mexican chorizo , add some rice, sauteed onions or other veg and a about a teaspoon of vinegar. This is a delicious combo to fill an extra large flour tortilla. The vinegar brightens the whole filling.  -  31 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
