Turkey Bacon Breakfast Burritos

Here is a great tasting breakfast burrito recipe from Butterball turkey.  I want to thank Butterball for sponsoring the Allrecipes all-stars this month.  Each Tuesday this month I will make and feature a  new recipe containing Butterball turkey products for Turketarian Tuesdays.  

I wanted to make this recipe a little more diet-friendly so I modified the original recipe to reduce the fat and calories by substituting eggbeaters for the eggs. I skipped the oil and used non-stick spray.   I also used low-carb tortillas in place of regular and low-fat cheddar cheese.  I don't think that these changes sacrificed any flavor but did make it a healthier version.  

Click here for the original recipe from Allrecipes.com.   I also cut the original recipe from 8 down to 4 servings. I just love that handy dandy edit servings feature on the Allrecipes site, that we really helps me to avoid doing the math myself to adjust serving sizes. :)

Here's my version of the recipe.  Hope you enjoy!

1.  Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray.  Add eggbeaters to skillet. Cook, pulling cooked portion to the center. Add bacon and continue cooking until eggs are firm. Remove from heat.
