The Method: Easy Breakfast Burrito

This method can be a game-changer in your house: a foolproof, flexible, tasty and nutritious breakfast or snack, ready in minutes.
While you warm a small non stick pan (the one you use for frying eggs, maybe), assemble your fillings:
1 beaten egg
1 T finely chopped onion or shallot
1-2 chopped cherry tomatoes, or a chopped slice of a big tomato
2 heaping T beans
2 T finely chopped spinach
Handful of grated cheese
A little cooked bacon or chorizo if you like, some pico de gallo, cilantro, avocado... just keep the total volume of filling (aside from cheese) to less than half a cup or the burrito will be difficult to roll.
1 flour tortilla.
Add a little butter to the hot pan and then the beaten egg, and tilt the pan until the egg is covering the whole surface.
Sprinkle all of your chosen fillings, aside from the cheese, in a line across the center of the egg and allow to cook for a minute.
When the egg is almost totally cooked and looking mostly firm, sprinkle the grated cheese onto the entire surface.
Grab your tortilla and press it gently onto the cheesy egg mixture; a tortilla bigger than the pan works fine, just center it and press it so it adheres to the cheese.
Let it cook another 30 seconds or so, then turn off the heat.
Let cool for another 30 seconds, then turn your pan over a plate, allowing the egg and tortilla to slide off and land filling side up.
Roll, tucking the ends in as you do so, and then enjoy!
