    5 eggs

    This is a great idea, but really, turkey bacon is worse for you than regular bacon. It's loaded with sodium, nitrates, preservatives and food dyes. Better off using ham, or half of a leaner natural bacon and dicing that up. Or like one person did, turkey sausage. Stay away from turkey bacon! - 3/26/09

    Easy recipe and great for breakfast, I used turkey sausage instead of turkey bacon and also added crushed red pepper for a little pizzaz. I substituted whole wheat tortillas for the flour. - 10/3/08

    Yum. In Texas we would call it a breakfast taco or taquito. If you want to save a few more calories, try it with corn tortillas instead - or whole wheat flour tortillas. - 5/25/08

    I'm going to try a version of this! For those of you who don't have 10 family members you can use the recipe calculator to make changes - including substitutions like whole wheat tortillas and/or Southwestern (or regular) Egg Beaters! - 3/25/08

    For those who do not like green peppers and onions, like me, try sliced black olives and a touch of garlic powder instead with the rest the same. This is aweome for for breakfast or dinner, and you can roll up some extras in zip-locks for later or the next day! Or freeze for 1 minute breakfast days. - 7/5/08

    I must agree with the comment about turkey bacon being worse for you than regular bacon. Hubby and I watch "How It's Made", and I will NEVER eat turkey bacon again after seeing what it is made of, basically same as bologna. - 7/31/09

    I make these using whole wheat tortillas and Egg Beaters ... waaaaaaaaaay less calories, much more fiber and very easy! If you use the Southwestern Egg Beaters, you cut out all the chopping! Also soy breakfast meats can be substituted. My 21 yr old college son LOVES them! - 3/25/08

    I liked it and found it very easy to make. But like all
    recipes I tweeked this one also. I used 2 whole eggs and 3 egg whites, I also used fat free evaporated milk. Adds a lot of richness with NO EXTRA FAT. Try it the way I made it. You might like it, and your getting less calories & less fat. - 4/23/09

    I used the corn tortillas I had on hand—yum . . . I just warmed them in the microwave. The salsa I had on hand was black bean and corn, a few more calories, but the added nutrition was worth it. This was an easy, delicious, satisfying breakfast. - 5/25/08

    This was excellent! I did not follow the cooking instructions exactly. I cut down the amount of everything, didn't need 10 servings. I also cooked the bacon separate, warmed the tortillas separate in the microwave and assembled everything at the table, so each person could make to their liking. - 5/11/08

    I make a burrito similar to this but use Oscar Mayer Center Cut. It has less sodium and calories. Plus, I'm not a turkey bacon fan. It's too chewy! Thanks for the effort though!:-) - 4/11/09

    Breakfast burritos are great but I use corn tortillas to cut down the carbs & fat. I do not use turkey bacon use the real thing and it is still well in the nutrition range. - 4/12/09
