The breakfast burrito, sometimes referred to as a breakfast wrap, is a variety of American breakfast composed of breakfast items wrapped inside a flour tortilla burrito. This style was invented and popularized in several regional American cuisines, most notably New Mexican cuisine, Southwestern cuisine, and Tex-Mex. Southwestern breakfast burritos may include scrambled eggs, potatoes, onions, chorizo, or bacon.

Some fast food restaurants such as Burger King, Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s and Taco Bell sell breakfast burritos. The breakfast burrito is also a street food.

The breakfast burrito was invented in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Little William Harm’s Burrito Shack, claims to have invented the original breakfast burrito in 1975, filling a rolled tortilla with bacon and potatoes, served wet with chile and cheese. Fast food giant McDonald’s introduced their version in the late 1980s, and by the 1990s, more fast food restaurants caught on to the style, with Sonic Drive-In, Hardee’s, and Carl’s Jr. offering breakfast burritos on their menus. In 2014, Taco Bell launched their breakfast menu, which included breakfast burritos.

 

 

The breakfast burrito can be prepared with myriad filling ingredients, such as eggs, ham, cheese, onion, peppers, bacon, Canadian bacon, potatoes, sausage, avocado, tomato, spinach, beans, olives and other ingredients.
