These little Burrito Breakfast Baskets are brilliant when you have a crowd for breakfast – or you want to make up a batch and head outdoors to eat. No cutlery required, no plates – just grab a basket and go!

Ingredients (serves 10 | makes 10 burrito baskets)

  • 10 Mini Burritos or tortillas
  • 10 Eggs (small to medium size)
  • 10 Slices of shortcut bacon (rind removed)
  • 1 Avocado (large) diced
  • 1 Tomato (large) diced
  • 1/2 Red Onion (small) finely diced
  • 2 tbsp Kidney Beans or Black Beans (optional)
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 1/4 cup Parsley (or Coriander) roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp Paprika or Cayenne Pepper (both are optional and depend on how hot you like it)


  1. Heat the mini burritos in the microwave per the instructions on the packet. This will make them more pliable and not break
  2. Place the mini burrito into the cup of a muffin tray and gently fold the edges so that you create a cup/basket shape.
  3. Take one piece of raw bacon (about 12 - 15cm long) and lay it inside each basket.
  4. Crack 1 egg into each burrito basket
  5. Sprinkle with a tiny amount of paprika or cayenne pepper and place on the middle tray of your oven preheated to 175 degrees celcius (fan forced) or 185 degrees celcius (not fan forced)
  6. Cook the baskets until the eggs are to your liking (about 8 minutes for soft centres and about 12 minutes for hard yolks) but test to be sure remembering they will continue to cook for a couple of minutes after you remove them from the oven.
  7. While your burrito Baskets are cooking, dice up all other ingredients, squeeze with lemon juice, add a dash of paperike or chilli and set aside in a bowl.
  8. Serve hot or cold, on their own or as an addition to breakfast and if you like a little more heat, add some jalapenos or a splash or hot sauce!


If you wanted to bulk these up a little more, you could add cheese before you bake them. Yum!

  • Ahahaha they’re so cute mini burritos love it


  • With a little thought, these could be delightful Valentines’ Day breakfasts.


  • Very attractive to eat for kids too. I would certainly use some grated cheese mixed with some chopped up spinach leaves on the bottom and then top with the egg, yum !

    It would certainly be something different to serve for a group breakfast.
