Afghan Eggs Burrito

Add a kick to your weekend breakfast with these delicious breakfast burritos based on a traditional Afghan Egg recipe. 

Traditional Afghani Eggs

A traditional Afghan eggs recipe would be eggs baked in a tomato sauce with spring onions and seasoning. I’m not usually a fan of eggs drenched in tomato, I mean, I’m that person who keeps their scrambled egg on the opposite side of the plate to the baked beans when it comes to a full English! I decided that I would lessen the tomato element and up the egg, adding some chilli for good measure.

Egg in a burrito?

It’s quite common now to have your breakfast wrapped up in a cute, little burrito. You see it in restaurants, cafes, there are tons of recipes online; it’s really catching on. It originates from New Mexico apparently.

It’s common in Afghanistan to eat flatbread with your meal, so I thought why not use that as the bread to wrap with and give this recipe a Mexican twist! If you’ve not had breakfast in your burrito before, then this will be a good place to start since it’s only one of the breakfast elements!
