Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. From Classic Crepes to the traditional Breakfast Sandwich, a good meal for breakfast can really kick start the entire day.

What’s a breakfast burrito-

A breakfast burrito (also known as a breakfast wrap) is a flour tortilla filled with breakfast ingredients that is then rolled up like a burrito.

The ingredients can be personalized to taste though we love the classic sausage with fluffy eggs and cheese.
