Bomber Bacon Breakfast Burrito Bites
Updated: Jan 12
Sorry, I had to say it, these breakfast burritos are the bomb in more ways than one. Bomber, in case you didn't know is surfer lingo for something large. In this case these Bomber Breakfast Burritos made with one of my new favorite instantpot accessories.
I love breakfast burritos but found that my usual egg bites where a little too bulky to use. Normally I would cut them into smaller pieces to make rolling the burrito easier and if it weren't for my wife I would have continued on like this, blissfully ignorant of a better way.
My wife is a huge fan of breakfast bars, but the store bought ones contain a ton of chemicals and are a little on the pricier side of things. So she started making her own using silicon baking molds. These molds are great for this sort of thing and one day, after being a little too lazy to do the dishes and wanting some eggs, I decided to see if her silicon molds would work in the instantpot. Not all molds are made the same so this was a risky move, but it paid of in a big way!
Just take a look a these beautiful bomber burritos, I say bomber because each "bar" is about one egg, so the calories can add up quick, Using a low carb tortilla like those from La Tortilla Factory can help with that. These may be the best burritos I've ever made, so easy and so good! The mold size is perfect for the average tortilla and since all the ingredients are already in the bites it means just a adding you extras and rolling up, I like to use a little Tapatio in my breakfast burritos but that is entirely up to you.
For these you will need:
4 large eggs
2 ounces of cooked bacon
a pinch of salt and pepper
1 once of cheese of your choice, I went with shredded Chihuahua cheese
Blend the cheese and eggs together until thoroughly scrambled, place bits of bacon into the mold. You cold blend the bacon with the eggs but I like the bacon to be a little chunky, you want to feel it when you bite into the burrito.
This next part is very tricky and i recommend a tool to fill the molds. Our old confectionery funnel worked perfectly, once the molds are filled, leave a little room for the eggs to expand as they cook, pop them into the instant pot and get ready to have your mind blown.
Once they are done, roll them up in your favorite brand of tortilla, I use La Tortilla Factory because I'm trying to reduce my carbs, and enjoy!
