Sweet Potato Breakfast Burrito!
 
Ingredients
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium sweet potato
1/2 medium onion
1 jalapeno (with or without seeds)
1/4 cup cilantro
pinches salt and pepper
1/2 cup part-skim shredded cheddar cheese
2 eggs
2 tablespoons 1% milk
6-8 whole wheat tortillas
Instructions
Preheat oven to 425˚ and bring a medium/large pot of water to a simmer.
To prep, dice onions and jalapeno. Peel sweet potato and cube into 1/2″ pieces.
In a pan, heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Saute onion and pepper. Stir in sweet potato and continue to cook until sweet potato pieces are tender, about 4-5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and cilantro. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a separate pan, heat over medium low remaining olive oil. Whisk together eggs and milk, then pour into heated pan. Scramble eggs.
Turn off pot of water. Taking one tortilla at a time, dip in hot water for 3-4 seconds. Place on a cutting board and scoop one spoonful of sweet potato filling, egg, and a pinch of cheese on top.
Roll tight and place seam side down on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Repeat until all the filling is used. Drizzle each piece with oil.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until the whole wheat tortilla is a light brown color.

Serves: 1-2
