The co-host of the Food Network series The Kitchen and the host of Sandwich King, Jeff Mauro, teaches Fatherly’s editor-at-large, Joshua David Stein, how to make the ultimate breakfast burrito for your kids.
For many parents, getting kids out of the house in the morning is always a challenge. You don’t always have time to make a proper meal. According to Chef Mauro, the beauty of this recipe is that it does not require a lot of preparation and you can try involving your kids. They are more likely to eat if they have a hand in the creation.
To make the Ultimate Breakfast Burrito, first you turn on the George Foreman Rapid Grill and set it to 400 degrees. Then you sear one 8-ounce cut of steak, which you can replace with breakfast sausage, turkey, or any protein you like.
Cook the steak to medium. Then throw some butter on the griddle attachment and add chopped onions and red peppers to it. Next, scramble eggs. Chef Mauro says that cracking and mixing eggs could be a fun activity for the kids.
Once you have all the ingredients ready, it’s time to wrap the burrito! You will need a 12-inch flour tortilla. First, put the cheese and egg right on top, and if you have sauce, do a whole perimeter around there so every bite is even. When you wrap the burrito, fold over the sides first and then tuck the tortilla.
