Loaded breakfast burritos

A loaded breakfast burrito from Lorna Cooper will get the whole family off to a great start to the day.

A loaded breakfast burrito makes a change from normal boring breakfasts. “These make a great hot breakfast with minimal fuss in the morning,” says Lorna Cooper, author of new cookbook, Feed Your Family For £20 A Week.

“They definitely taste like they cost a whole lot more than they do! I often make these at the weekend and then wrap and freeze for a quick and easy hot breakfast midweek.”

Loaded breakfast burritos from Feed Your Family For £20 A Week by Lorna Cooper


(Serves 12)

  • Oil, for frying

  • 2 sausages, removed from their skins

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1/2 pepper, diced

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • 6 eggs

  • 50ml milk

  • 50g cheese, grated

  • Parsley, chopped

  • 2 cooked potatoes or 1/2 tin, diced

  • 12 wraps


1. Pour a little oil into a frying pan and add the sausages, breaking them up with a wooden spoon (as you would if you were browning mince).

2. Add the diced onion and cook for five minutes.

3. Add the pepper and tomato and cook for a further five minutes.

4. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add the milk. Add this to the sausages and veg, and cook like you would scrambled eggs until the egg has cooked through.

5. Remove from the heat and add the grated cheese and parsley. Stir through the potatoes.

6. Spoon the mixture onto 12 wraps and then either roll or fold them up, ready to eat.
