POINTS® Value: 7
Servings: 2
Preparation Time: 10 min

Level of Difficulty: Easy
Works with Simply Filling
Bacon and scrambled eggs are rolled up in tortillas, baked and then topped with sour cream and avocado. Nice change from a bowl of oatmeal.


2 serving(s) butter-flavor cooking spray

3 large egg white(s)

2 large egg(s)

2 slice(s) Canadian-style bacon, finely chopped

1/4 tsp dried oregano

1/8 tsp table salt

1/8 tsp black pepper

3 tbsp salsa, drained of excess liquid before measuring

2 large burrito-size wheat flour tortilla(s)

4 tbsp reduced-fat sour cream

1/8 medium avocado, ripe, cut into 2 wedges


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a small baking sheet with cooking spray. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat.

  • In a large bowl, beat egg whites and eggs. Add bacon, oregano, salt, pepper and salsa; stir well.

  • Pour egg mixture into prepared skillet; increase heat to medium. Let eggs partially set and then scramble using a spatula. When eggs are set but still slightly glossy, remove from heat.

  • Spoon half of egg mixture into center of each tortilla. Roll tortilla to conceal filling, making sure to fold in ends. Place burritos, seam-side down, on prepared baking sheet. Bake until burritos are very hot, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and serve each burrito with 1 tablespoon of sour cream and 1 slice of avocado.


  • For a breakfast on the go, fill a toasted whole-wheat pita half with the scrambled egg mixture, sour cream and avocado.
