Breakfast Burritos

This is the inn's most popular breakfast item, and it's a very versatile recipe—sturdy enough for dinner too. Use whatever vegetables are seasonal and abundant. Serve with salsa and sour cream. Note: You must start this dish one day ahead of serving.

Comments on this Recipe

I have the recipe for breakfast burritos, but there were other recipes from the inn that were served with them that I have misfile or lost that I would like to have.


This recipe is amazing. I've followed the instructions carefully, and it is good. However, when we subbed corn tortillas, it was even better. You end up cutting in squares, rather than getting perfectly shaped burritos, but the texture is amazing, and it is healthier. I find dry dill works fine as a substitute too.
