SunnySideUp Breakfast Egg Burrito
Author:  Brenna Bowers
Makes: 1 Burrito

1 tsp butter
2 Tbs white onion, chopped or sliced
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 small roasted red bell pepper in oil, drained and chopped (found at Trader Joes in a jar) ½ cup ¼ cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1 whole wheat tortilla
2 Tbs cheddar cheese, shredded
¼ of an avocado, sliced
1 egg
Salt and pepper

Turn on the heat to medium-low and add the butter into a small sauté pan. Once the butter is melted, sauté the onion for about 2-4 minutes, stirring once in a while and continuing to cook until translucent. Add in the garlic, roasted red bell pepper and spinach; sautéing until the spinach wilts down (about 1-2 minutes) and stir every so often.

Sprinkle the cheese onto the tortilla and place it in the microwave for about 40 seconds- just long enough to melt the cheese. Slice the avocado and place it onto the tortilla with the melted cheese. Place the sautéed veggies on the tortilla as well.

In the sauté pan (just used for the veggies), carefully crack the egg into the pan (not breaking the yolk) and sprinkle with salt and pepper to season. Allow the egg to cook low and slow until the egg white turns opaque (when the egg white turns from transparent to solid white and the yolk is still runny, it is ready). Place the SunnySideUp egg on the tortilla and wrap it up like a burrito. 

Eat up and start your day right!
