      Hi Connie! I hope you like the burritos! They make a great weekend breakfast :) So glad you like my site too!

    We make these probably once a week. Except we put sausage and green chilies in the mix. So good.

      Oooh, we’ve been thinking about changing it up and adding sausage instead of bacon. Love the green chilies idea, too. Thanks for sharing, Janene!

    I agree, there are thousands of breakfast burritos in San Diego, but the best ones are usually what we make at home with whatever is left in the fridge! I usually use queso fresco instead of cheddar, if you haven’t, you should try it!

      Hi Tiffany! Never tried making them with queso fresco! I will have to try that next time…I usually don’t use queso fresco because Dustin doesn’t like it…but this could be an easy substitution for my burritos. Thanks!

    Just discovered your site and love it! Started off by making your breakfast burrritos. Got to be honest, around here breakfast burritos are a staple and didn’t think that your version could be that much different than the ones I’ve been making for years. Boy, was I wrong. Loved the flavor of the potatoes with the worschestshire and oregano. Made them with sausage cause my crew prefers sausage to bacon (I know, can you believe it) and they were fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing!

      Hi Katherine! Welcome to my site — so happy you found it! I’m glad my breakfast burritos passed your test! Few! :) I’ve been meaning to make them with some sausage, too. See you around!

    I will be trying this recipe tonight. I can’t wait to taste them as they sound incredible.

    This was absolutely FABULOUS. We move a lot with my husband being in the military. One of the drawbacks is missing my San Diego breakfast burritos! Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving them back to me! My husband said that this will be one of our go-to recipes for special mornings. Fabulous!

    Although this looks like a great recipe that is representative of San Diego burritos, I would recommend using the stovetop to heat your tortillas vice the microwave. Package the burrito and use a little cheese for glue to hold it together, and then heat it on the stove.

    Hi! Thanks for the recipe! I’m trying it now!
    Have you frozen the burritos after making them up? I’ve seen a few recipes for frozen breakfast burritos but this make up seems the tastiest. But I don’t want to harm the integrity of them. Just wondering if you have any suggestions or if you’ve tried freezing them.

      You know, I have never tried freezing this recipe before. I can’t imagine the integrity of the eggs and potatoes will hold up very well upon freezing, but I’d love to know how it turns out if you try :)
