Breakfast Burrito

This is so simple, I can't believe I haven't shared it yet!

2 slices of Oscar Meyer Center Cut bacon
1 free range organic egg
1 slice Kraft 2% pepperjack cheese
1 whole wheat burrito size high fiber tortilla (I believe I use La Tortilla Factory, in any case it is a 1 pt tortilla for calculation sake)

Warm tortilla in micro for 15 seconds to increase pliability.

Cut cheese into halves and line in center of tortilla.

Cut the two slices of bacon in half. Cook to desired crispness (I go a little bit chewy and a little bit crisp). Place four halves on top of cheese.

Cook egg IN the leftover bacon grease (you are paying the points, you deserve the extra flavor!). There won't be a lot of grease because center cut bacon is relatively low in fat, but it enhances the flavor of the egg. Add egg on top of bacon and wrap. You can find the link to easy wrapping instructions here.

Calculations are for the one serving. One point for bacon, One point for cheese, Two points for egg, One point for tortilla.

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
