These freezer-friendly healthy breakfast burritos are packed with kale, mushrooms and feta. The perfect easy grab and go breakfast that will actually keep you full!
Are you a sweet or savory breakfast person?
That was until these healthy breakfast burritos with kale, mushrooms and feta came into my life. Oh my goodness, I am 100% most definitely on team savory breakfast now!
These breakfast burritos were voted the most popular recipe from our September Breakfast Prep Challenge, and it has taken me this long to share the recipe with you. Sorry!
Since then I’ve made these 3-4 more times, and I even shot a video to show you how easy they are to make, and just how many healthy ingredients they contain (scroll to the bottom of the post).
These breakfast burritos are the perfect blend of savory flavors: eggs + feta cheese + sauteed mushrooms, oh my goodness YES. The kale is there but not overpowering. You might even forget it’s in there!
Other than the delicious savory flavors in these healthy breakfast burritos, I love the texture. I use my old school George Foreman grill to get them nice and crispy. If you don’t have one, you can use a frying pan or even a toaster oven.
Not only are they delicious, but easily frozen so that you can always have a stash of healthy breakfast burritos at your fingertips. I like to pull mine out the night before to thaw in the fridge, but if you forget you can also thaw in the microwave in 30 second increments.
If making healthier food choices is one of your goals for 2017, you are gonna love these guys!
