Recipe

For the past few years I have worked from home. While this has its pros and cons, one thing I love about working from home is the pleasure of easing into the day and more importantly breakfast without being completely frazzled. If we rewind a few years, I was the girl running out of the house with one minute to spare or I would hit the worst of the LA morning traffic. Seriously. There was a 5 minute window between a 20 minute commute and 1 hour commute. So back then, after about a year of unappetizing bar breakfasts, I finally gave up on preparing breakfast at home and starting making breakfast at work utilizing all my office had to offer – the microwave. And today’s breakfast burrito was my favorite office five minute breakfasts.

Here’s how it works. First you start with some veggies, around a half a cup. Those get microwaved for one minute to soften them up. Then we add the eggs. I usually use egg whites, but whole eggs work great as well. Mix them in, season with some salt and pepper, and then pop them in the microwave for 1.5-2 minutes. Take them out and let them rest for a minute. Meanwhile, smear 1/4 cup refried beans on the tortilla and microwave it for 30 seconds. Take it out, add the eggs, spoon on some salsa, and that’s it! Breakfast burrito in under 5 minutes.
