  • Yields: 10 servings


2 teaspoons butter or avocado oil

1 small onion, diced

1 small red bell pepper, diced

1 lb ground turkey

8 eggs

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried cumin

2 teaspoons salt

1 black pepper

1 cup crumbled goat cheese

1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend

10 ten-inch flour tortillas


In a large skillet, heat the butter or oil over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and saute until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add in the ground turkey and cook about 7 minutes.

While the ground turkey is cooking, crack the eggs in a medium bowl. Add the oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper and whisk well.

Drain any excess liquid or fat from the turkey mixture. Turn the heat to low and add the eggs.

Use a spatula to keep the eggs moving. When they are almost set, turn off the heat.

Stir in the crumbled goat cheese and allow the mixture to cool completely.

To assemble the burritos, add some of the egg mixture and top it with some of the shredded cheese. Fold up two sides and then roll in the opposite direction.

Wrap each burrito tightly with aluminum foil. Place in a freezer bag and freeze for up to three months.

Reheating Instructions

Burritos can be reheated from frozen, no need to thaw.

To reheat in the microwave, microwave at full power for 4 minutes, turn over, and then microwave an additional 4-5 minutes.

To reheat in the oven, cook for 30 minutes at 400 degrees F.
