My swiss style breakfast burrito

swiss breakfast burrito

One of my favorite comfort foods is a good breakfast burrito. Every time I go to California, the first thing I need to do is order one of those at the local Mexican. I just love it!

They usually look like this

Actually, they usually even look better, yummier!

This weekend I made a simple one, a healthy version. And for that I used

Some olive oil
1 onion diced
1 big garlic clove diced 
Two eggs whisked with some milk
some grated Gouda cheese
1/4 grated zucchini
1 diced tomato
1 or 2 small potatoes diced
chili powder
paprika powder
2 whole wheat tortillas
Local Salami (since I didn't have any chorizo)

I put a little bit of olive oil in a pan, added the onion and the garlic and let it get glazy. Added the diced potatoes and let it cook for 3-5 minutes. Then I added the grated zucchini and the diced tomato, the whisked eggs, some salt, pepper, chili powder and some paprika powder.

After the egg was cooked I added the grated gouda on top, covered the pan with the lid and let the cheese melt a bit.

I mixed it all up, then warmed up the tortillas in the oven.

I made one burrito for me, adding some cayenne pepper on the egg mixture, and some salami I bought two days ago in the mountains, that was actually made there. So fresh, so good!

And to finish it up I added some creme fraiche, instead of sour creme, and of course some Tabatio, that I got in San Diego last summer, something that just can’t be missing on a breakfast burrito,.

And I made one for my son with the salami too, but without the cayenne pepper, nor the creme fraiche, since he doesn’t like it, and of course also without the Tapatio. That reminds me, he had a bad experience with hot sauce, once, when he was about three years old…I tried to open a bottle of Tabasco at IHOP, and a tiny little spritz of this hotness landed right into one of his eyes! OUCH! Poor baby! I felt so terrible! Even though it hurt a lot, he doesn’t really remember it. Thank goodness! Either way, he’s too young to eat spicy food yet, even though there’s a little Mexican in him. 🙂


Unfortunately, I didn’t have any avocado left over when I made this. But usually I love to eat this with a simple, but tasty home made guacamole. Oh well, next time.
