There’s no ONE right way to make a breakfast burrito. But if you follow these easy rules, you’re guaranteed perfect results (that can cure any hangover!) every time.
1. Cook the potatoes in bacon fat.
All the best breakfast burritos have some sort of potato component (we love a double carb moment). To keep prep to an absolute minimum, we use frozen hash browns. Crisping them up in the bacon fat will lend them a great crunch and a touch of bacon-y flavor. if you’re more into country-style, you can make our favorite pan-fried potatoes instead.pepperoni pizza dip
2. Season the eggs at the last minute.
According to Gordon Ramsay, adding salt in the beginning draws out moisture and makes eggs watery. So wait to do it until the very end.
3. Use a sharp, tangy, or spicy cheese.
Obviously cheddar is perfect because it melts nicely. But gouda (sharp), goat cheese (tangy), or pepper jack (spicy) work really too. Mild varieties like mozzarella or Monterey jack are totally acceptable but they don’t add nearly as much flavor. A good mix of cheeses is always a winner too.
4. Don’t use a cold tortilla.
It’ll be really hard to fold and roll and will likely break on you. Warm or room temp makes things much easier. Warming them up in the microwave or quickly over a flame works well
