How To Make Air Fryer Loaded Breakfast Burrito
Melt 2 tbsp butter with 3 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Add potatoes and cook about 7-8 minutes before adding onions and peppers. Sauté for an additional 3-4 mins. Remove from heat and set aside.
Cook proteins, drain, and set aside.
Scramble eggs, seasoning lightly with salt and pepper.
Start by adding the eggs to the center of the tortilla and lightly mashing down with the back of a spoon to hold the rest of the ingredients.
Add your proteins, followed by the sautéed potatoes and veggies, and top with cheese. Roll burrito tightly.
How to Cook Breakfast Burritos in the Air Fryer

Yes, this is a very versatile recipe. You can add anything you want. I often change out the proteins, depending on what we have in the house.
Some great options are hash browns, tater tots, sausage links, fried eggs, feta cheese, fresh vegetables—anything and everything that you can think of.
Can You Make These Burritos in Any Air Fryer?
I have about 30 to 35 air fryers, and this recipe will work in any Air Fryer Basket or Air Fryer Oven, including Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot Vortex, Instant Pot Crisp Lid, GoWise, Phillips, etc.
The only thing that will change is the time, and each air fryer is slightly different by a few minutes. So, check your Air Fryer Loaded Breakfast Burrito as they are cooking.
What oil sprayer do you use?
After buying many air fryer sprayers, I have been using this one for about 3 1/2 years, and it is truly the only one that works!
It’s a bit expensive but well worth the expense.
How To Freeze Breakfast Burritos
After preparing the breakfast burritos, wrap them in plastic wrap. Wrap the burritos tightly—place them inside a gallon-sized freezer bag. Make sure to label the bag with the date and the contents of the burritos, especially if you prepared them based on the varying needs of family members. Burritos will be good for up to 3 weeks in the freezer.
When warming up after frozen, it is best to let it defrost in the fridge the night before but if you forget, remove it from plastic wrap (this helps avoid kids being burned by steam). Wet a paper towel, wrap it around the frozen burrito, and microwave for 1 min.
This will steam the burrito as it heats up, and the tortilla won’t be hard.
