These full English breakfast burritos are the ultimate weekend brunch – all the best bits of a vegetarian full English, wrapped up in a crispy tortilla!

You’ve heard of a full English breakfast. You’ve heard of a breakfast burrito. But have you ever put the two together? I’m amazed I haven’t tried it sooner, because it actually works beautifully – these full English breakfast burritos make the perfect cooked breakfast for a lazy Sunday morning!

What is a breakfast burrito?

I’m sure loads of you are familiar with breakfast burritos, but they’re not hugely popular here in the UK – it’s not an item you’ll commonly see served at a café. But in my opinion, they’re one of the best breakfast items out there.

All sorts of delicious breakfast items, wrapped up in a soft tortilla, cooked until it’s all hot and crispy… it’s incredible.

Burritos are one of my Tex-Mex favourites, and while I would usually make burritos for dinner, it’s great to have an excuse to eat them for breakfast too!

What’s in a full English breakfast?

These full English breakfast burritos bring a bit of British to your burrito, as they’re stuffed with everything you’d find in a typical vegetarian full English breakfast.

Well, maybe not everything – there’s only so much you can fit inside a tortilla – but there are definitely enough different elements inside for you to feel the full English flavours coming through.

I stuffed my full English breakfast burritos with:

  • fried eggs
  • vegetarian sausages
  • garlic sautéed mushrooms
  • British-style baked beans

You could also add:

Start by getting each element ready individually – then you can combine them into one incredible full English breakfast burrito.

First up: the fried egg

Fried eggs (or occasionally scrambled) are one of the most important parts of a vegetarian full English breakfast.

I like to cook my eggs over a fairly low heat, so they don’t get crispy and burnt on the bottom – I prefer a soft egg white that’s just set. I flip the eggs over for the last few seconds, just to make sure it’s not gooey on top.

For breakfast burritos, leave the yolk slightly runny – when you cut the burrito open, and it all oozes out… yum.

Next, garlic mushrooms

Mushrooms are another must-have on a full English. And the only things better than sautéed mushrooms are sautéed garlic mushrooms!

There’s very little better than mushrooms sautéed (preferably in butter) with heaps of garlic, so that’s what I always do. The smell is just incredible!

Plus, it’s always nice to have some kind of vegetable on your plate…

Vegetarian sausages

I don’t often use ‘fake meat’ in my recipes here on the blog, but vegetarian sausages (or veggie bacon, if you prefer) are vital for a full English breakfast.

If you’re not a fan of the shop-bought ones, feel free to make your own vegetarian sausages – they’re not quite the same as the meat-style ones you can buy, but they still taste amazing.

I used leftover sausages (we had a BBQ the day before!), which really helped to make these breakfast burritos quick and easy to throw together.

Finally – baked beans

The final piece of the puzzle is some British-style baked beans. They’re one of the most iconic British staples, so they’re pretty widely available in various countries, but if you can’t find them, you can always buy online – Heinz and Branston brands are both awesome.

You can also make your own, if you prefer. My vegetarian baked beans recipe makes baked beans that are a bit more gourmet than the ones you get in a tin, but delicious nonetheless!

Full English breakfast burrito

Finally, turn your breakfast into a burrito! Just pile up all the different elements of you breakfast onto a large flour tortilla.

I added some grated cheese to mine – partly because it’s delicious, and why on earth wouldn’t you want to add cheese to your breakfast? and partly because when the cheese melts, it helps to stick your burrito together and keep everything nice and tidy.

Get it crispy

When you’ve wrapped up your breakfast burrito, cook it for a few minutes each side in a dry frying pan.

Cooking your burrito helps it to get nice and hot and crispy. All of the separate elements of your full English breakfast cook together into one cohesive brunch dish that you can pick up in your hands – just perfect!

  • 2 vegetarian sausages
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 egg
  • ~ 4 small mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large flour tortilla
  • 2 tbsp British-style baked beans (e.g. Heinz or Branston), heated
  • 2 tbsp grated cheddar cheese


  • Cook the vegetarian sausages according to the instructions on the packet (usually around 20 minutes in the oven).
  • Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan, and crack in the egg. Cook to your liking – I usually leave the yolk runny, but turn the egg over for the last 20 seconds or so, to make sure it’s not too gooey on top.
  • Remove the cooked egg from the pan, and add the sliced mushrooms and garlic. Cook for a few minutes, until soft and fragrant.
  • Lay a large flour tortilla on a plate, and add the fried egg, garlic mushrooms, cooked sausages (I halved mine lengthwise), and a couple of spoonfuls of warm baked beans. Top with a little grated cheese.
  • Fold in the two ends of the tortilla, then either roll it up (for a rounder burrito), or fold in the remaining two sides (for a flatter one) – if needed, see here for detailed photos showing how to fold a burrito.
  • Place the burrito seam-side down in a dry frying pan, and cook for a few minutes over a medium heat, until the underside is golden brown and crispy. Turn the burrito and repeat on the other side. Best served immediately.

  1. Don’t you find the egg gets overcooked while you’re frying off the tortilla at the end? That isn’t a criticism, by the way, but a genuine question.

    I can’t really see myself making these, delicious as they sound, because I know that I wouldn’t succeed in sealing the burrito and its contents would go everywhere! If I did, I’d probably include a slice of fried halloumi and maybe some sliced tomato, either in the wrap or on the side.

    The nearest I’ll probably ever come to it is this take on Giraffe’s huevos rancheros tostada!

    1. No, not at all! The tortilla crisps up but the fillings don’t really cook any more. You can see in the pictures that my yolk was still soft and a bit runny, it left a little puddle on the plate :)

      It’s not hard to get them to seal properly, just use large tortillas, don’t overfill them, roll them tightly, and then make sure you cook them seam-side down first. And even if it does spill out a bit, it really doesn’t matter!
