Mugrito (Burrito in a Mug)- Who can say no to a Burrito that you make 100% in the microwave in minutes! And the results are a crispy, delicious Burrito.

Hi Bold Bakers!

One of my favorite savory breakfasts is a Breakfast Burrito. They are filling and full of things I love like eggs and cheese, and wrapped up in a soft white tortilla. To be fair, if you wrapped an old boot in a tortilla I would put salsa on it, so to fill it with some of my breakfast favorites is just a no brainer.

Why Make A Mug Burrito?

My Microwave Breakfast Burrito recipe is equally as good as one from a taqueria, except it will be cheaper and you are in control of what ingredients go in. You know those times you have leftover cooked sausage, rice or potatoes from last night’s dinner? Add those to your breakfast burrito. No waste and no fuss.

Breakfast has got to be the one meal that you never really know what you want or have the time to make it. I’m really bad at deciding what I want for breakfast, but one thing is for sure: whatever it is, I want it fast, and that’s why Mug Breakfasts are so great.

A whole breakfast in a mug: a soft tortilla with eggs, cheese, and salsa, called a mugrito, or a burrito in a mug.

If oats are what float your boat(s), then you are going to want to try my Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal. It’s a bowl of hot Oatmeal that tastes just like a Cinnamon Roll — 2 breakfasts in 1, minus a few calories.

Make a Microwave Breakfast Burrito in a Mug. It's a fast way to make a nutritious and delicious breakfast with any ingredients you have on hand.
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1 large 9 inch tortilla (flour or whole wheat)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons beans (pinto/black beans)
  • 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese , grated
  • 2 tablespoons scallions , chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • Garnish
  • salsa
  • sour cream

Instructions

  • In a large microwavable mug press in a fresh tortilla. It will naturally fold into the shape of the mug and find its way.
  • Crack in your eggs and whisk up with a fork, taking care not to tear the tortilla.
  • Now add in your favorite burrito mixins like cheese, beans, and scallions. Season with salt and pepper and mix all together. Whatever ingredients you have to hand will work great.
  • Microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds. Check, and if the eggs are still liquid, cook for another 15 -20 seconds. Keep an eye during cooking so the eggs don’t overheat. You don’t want an egg-splosion in your microwave. The cook time is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary.
  • Once done, let it sit for 3 minutes to cool and serve with some sour cream and salsa on top. I like to eat a little out of the middles and then lift it out of the mug and roll it like a burrito.

Does any mug work or is there a set of mugs you recommend for these recipes?

I really like the concept of this mug burrito, although I’d prefer some meat in mine! Guacamole would also be a great addition. Alas, I don’t have tortillas on hand, but I’m excited to give it a try soon.

Hi Gemma, I made some homemade chili the other day full of beans & veggies even fresh sweet corn. What if I used that instead of the eggs & topped with cheese & a small burrito wrap for the roof so to speak? My chili has some vegetarian refried beans to thicken it & tons of 3 kinds of peppers, onions, corn, celery, tiny chopped carrot pieces 3 kinds of beans & tomatoes pureed plus chili powder, cumin, paprika hot & smokey, oregano, basil, coriander s&p & chipotle chili powder as well-what about adding a spoonful to the Mug Ramen… Read more »

Hey Gemma, I think there is some bug in the website. I created an account on the website yesterday but today when i tried to login it said wrong password. When I tried to reset password, it said account is not registered. So, I made an account today again with same email ID and when I tried to login, it said wrong password again. When I tried to reset password today, it again said that account is not registered.

This burrito recipe is so good. I tore up a 20 inch flour tortilla to make it fit in the mug much easier and added mixed cheese, bacon and a pinch of salt and pepper. For the topping, I served mine with fresh salsa and sour cream. It tasted very good and I love it
