Mediterranean Breakfast Eggs Burrito

Though you might have thought that fusion food departed with the 1990s, food industry experts are saying that it is a new and emerging trend. This dish is the epitome of fusion cuisine, blending the burrito concept with classic Mediterranean flavors and turning it into a fantastic way to enjoy eggs at breakfast, or any time.

The ingredients are a nice blend of low carbohydrate ingredients that come together to create a flavorful and colorful dish. It does require a few store-bought or leftover items, and it may even be a reason to serve certain dishes just to make these burritos the next day!

Feelgood Facts

The primary heart of this dish is the eggs that are a wonderful source of protein, B2 and vitamin D. They bring a nice texture and flavor to the burrito, yet you also get lots of nutrition and taste from the remaining ingredients, as well. The arugula is a real star with its delicious, peppery flavors and crisp crunch. It is high in protein, fiber and brings 20% of your daily vitamin A. It also has half of your daily vitamin K and even some calcium.


The leftover potatoes should have their skins on to give the most fiber. Red potatoes are also dense with potassium and B vitamins, and a nice addition to the slick and soft texture of the red peppers. These are packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, and add that sunny flavor that few other ingredients can match.


With the addition of the store-bought pesto (or you can always whip up your own with a bit of olive oil, fresh basil leaves, garlic and some pine nuts and parmesan), this burrito becomes a flavor sensation. Ideal for breakfast, it is also a perfect and packable lunch that will give you a nice burst of energy.
