Breakfast burritos with crispy skillet potatoes

Serves 4


  • 4 potatoes, washed and diced into 1-inch cubes
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon chili powder, depending on how much spice you'd like to add
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • Optional ingredients include diced tomatoes, avocado, shredded cheese and/or salsa


  1. Coat the bottom of a cast iron skillet with vegetable oil and turn the heat on to medium high. Once the oil is hot, add the diced potatoes and spices. Stir to combine and cover the skillet with a lid. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. The potatoes will be done when soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Remove from heat.
  2. Drizzle some vegetable oil into the bottom of a skillet and turn the heat on to medium. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and add to the skillet once the pan is warm. Scramble the eggs until they are cooked through. Remove from heat.
  3. Warm the tortillas, fill them with the skillet potatoes, scrambled eggs and toppings of your choice. Wrap the tortilla up tight and enjoy your breakfast for dinner!
