Making broccoli, egg, and cheese burritos is very easy.
Start by baking the bacon in the oven on a parchment-lined baking sheet at the time and temperature indicated on the package. This is usually for 12-17 minutes. At the same time, steam the chopped broccoli in a vegetable steamer for 10 minutes, or until bright green.
While the bacon and broccoli are cooking, scramble the eggs in a large pan. When done, remove the eggs, add oil to the pan and add the chopped onions. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until translucent.
While the onions are cooking, shred the cheese and chop the tomatoes.
Now you're ready to stuff the burritos. Me and the kids like the bacon on the side and hubby likes it broken up inside his burritos. Do whatever tickles your fancy!

- 2 tomatoes, diced
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

It takes only a few simple swaps to make these healthy broccoli, egg and cheese burritos healthier than they already are.
- use turkey bacon instead of traditional bacon or leave out the bacon entirely (we only use bacon when we have it, which isn't often)
- replace cheddar cheese with a healthier one, like feta
- use whole wheat tortilla wraps instead of flour or corn tortillas
🧒🏼 make it kid-friendly
If cheesy eggs and bacon weren't enough to hide the broccoli from your picky kiddos, consider leaving it out entirely and making this a "bacon, egg, and cheese burrito". They may not get the veggies, but at least they'll get the tomatoes and eggs! It could be worse, right?!
You could also leave out the onions if they bother those tiny tummies. Although like I mentioned, the cooked onions really enhances the overall taste of this burrito. So if you can get away with keeping the onions, you totally should.
And if your family loves broccoli, try this Broccoli Garlic Cauliflower with Red Onions & Lemon recipe, also enhanced with delicious caramelized red onions!
