Microwave Burrito in a Mug: Mugrito (Microwave Mug Breakfasts)

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

One of my favorite savory breakfasts is a Breakfast Burrito. They are filling and full of things I love like eggs, 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.

My Burrito in a Mug is equally as good as one from a taqueria, except it will be cheaper and you are in control of what ingredients went 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.

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

And if you want to go really Big & Bold with your breakfast then Pop Tart in a Mug is your guy. I heard it called “A game changer in this space” (ok it was me, I said that).

Breakfast Burrito (Mugrito)
Prep Time
5 mins
Cook Time
2 mins
Total Time
7 mins
 
Servings: 1 serving
Calories: 455 kcal
Author: Gemma Stafford
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
  1. In a large microwavable mug press in a fresh tortilla. It will naturally fold into the shape of the mug and find its way.
  2. Crack in your eggs and whisk up with a fork, taking care not to tear the tortilla.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 over heat. You don’t want an egg-plosition in your microwave. The cook time is based on my 1200W microwave so yours might vary.
  5. 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.

    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

    • Gemma Stafford on June 16, 2018 at 5:16 am

      hi Chantese,
      Well done you! It sounds like you really got this recipe to work for you, and what can go wrong with fresh salsa and sour cream? Delicious,
      Gemma 🙂

  2. Bubblin Bonnie on September 20, 2017 at 9:45 am

    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 to make it a chili ramen soup? Think that’d work too?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 21, 2017 at 1:58 am

      Haha! you are a genius! This sounds really good, well done. A chilli ramen soup sounds delicious, and very inspiring. Make these recipes your own, they are a jumping off point,
      Gemma 🙂

  3. ginagirlio on July 22, 2017 at 9:00 am

    I made my mugrito with a small tortilla, so I only used one egg. I used the same ingredients and toppings as in the recipe and added some frozen peppers and onions to the egg. It was delicious and so quick and easy! I loved the taste and can’t wait to try different ingredients. So yummy!

    • Gemma Stafford on July 22, 2017 at 10:30 am

      hi there,
      This is so good to hear, I am happy that you are with us. Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

  4. Stephanie on June 17, 2017 at 6:43 am

    The Mugrito was so good! I added green onions, shredded cheese, and cracked black pepper. Then I put a spoonful of salsa on top after it came out of the microwave. It’s actually a Weight Watchers friendly recipe too — only about 7 SmartPoints, depending on which tortilla and cheese you use.

    Do you think they can be made in advance? Like, can I whip up 5 of these on a Sunday night, and have them be just as tasty during the workweek?

    Thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on June 19, 2017 at 11:39 am

      Hi Stephanie,
      I would not prepare these more than one day ahead. The eggs do not like this, and I think it will not be good.
      Happy baking, I am glad you like this one,
      Gemma 🙂

  5. Signe on April 28, 2017 at 5:28 am

    will it work in an turbo broiler?

    • Gemma Stafford on November 8, 2016 at 8:02 pm

      i am not sure what a turbo boiler is Jean, can you describe it?

  7. Harry Bradshaw on October 26, 2016 at 1:24 am

    Oh my god, it looks so yummy. ♥

  8. Ameena_zahra on October 16, 2016 at 4:21 am

    Hi gemma

    I just love your recipes. They are so easy and the results are just perfect ?

    Yeap! It’s crazy but can you show how to make croissants in a mug? ????

    I love croissant but hate making puff pastry

    • Gemma Stafford on October 17, 2016 at 1:48 am

      Ha ha! that would be crazy, and pretty impossible too. All pastry needs a hot oven! there is no getting away from that, Gemma 🙂

  9. Jonnymejia95 on October 13, 2016 at 6:51 am

    I just made this for breakfast and is so delicious!!!?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 14, 2016 at 4:04 am

      Hi Jonny, good to hear from you, happy to enjoyed this one! 🙂

  10. Corinne on August 25, 2016 at 1:47 pm

    Should the black beans be precooked? Can I just use them straight of the can or not?

    • Gemma Stafford on August 26, 2016 at 2:46 am

      Hi Corinne, they are cooked when you buy them in a can. you can use them right away, unless I am misunderstanding you? 🙂

  11. tmpruner on August 16, 2016 at 11:16 am

    Hey, Hey, Gemma, you hit it on this recipe girl friend! Absolutely divine, my what a great taste. I used refried beans, 2 TBSP, cause I had them on hand, was really really good! I also used the green chili-verde salsa. When I went to eat it I stirred it all up and dug in, Thanks for another good one!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 17, 2016 at 2:34 am

      Ha ha! thank you, you made me smile,
      Gemma 🙂

      Thank you for being with us Lorniki,
      Gemma 🙂

  21. Caroline on July 8, 2016 at 4:38 pm

    Can you cook these in the toaster oven?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 9, 2016 at 3:01 am

      Hi Caroline,
      Thank you for your kind comments. You can cook some of these in the toaster oven, though these recipes are designed for the microwave. Any ‘cake’ type one will work well in the hot oven, so the pop-tart one for instance will be good. it is worth a try at 180 degrees for about 20 mins, but keep an eye on it,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Fiona on December 11, 2016 at 8:56 am

        Hi Gemma, I tried the mugrito twice and it was delicious! My only problem was that they took 6 minutes each in my microwave ( 900 watts ) maybe I did something wrong but I think I followed the instructions perfectly.

        • Gemma Stafford on December 12, 2016 at 2:02 am

          Hi Fiona,
          The shape of the container you use may be part of the problem. Wider is better than deeper for microwave energy. My oven is 1.200 watt so will be quicker than yours, but not that much quicker. I would expect you to cook these in 1 – 2 mins. Is your oven an old one? they tend to lose efficiency as they age too.
          I am not much help with this one, sorry,
          Gemma 🙂

  22. Caroline on July 8, 2016 at 4:37 pm

    The “Mugrito” is SO GOOD!!!! I am awaiting more mug meal recipes!

  23. Rachael curtin on July 8, 2016 at 4:30 pm

      Great Taylor, i am happy this is working for you,
      Gemma 🙂

  25. Steve Wilsher on July 8, 2016 at 3:38 am
