Biggest Loser Turkey Breakfast Burrito 



I convinced my hubby to watch the Biggest Loser with me this season on Hulu and even though I can do without all the drama in this season's show (*cough CONDA*), I'm still managing to get some motivation and inspiration out of the show anyways. A few episodes back, their nutritionist introduced this Turkey breakfast burrito that really caught my attention so I decided to try it out. I prefer to have it for dinner instead of breakfast actually, but you can use it for whatever meal you want. It made my house smell soooo yummy and the burrito itself was delicious so you'll have to try it out!

Biggest Loser Turkey Breakfast Burrito

This is what you'll need: 

  • 1 package extra lean ground turkey breast
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg and 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup wheat bran
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
And I almost forgot the bell peppers!


So first you'll put the ground turkey breast in a mixing bowl. Add the onion powder and garlic powder, paprika, and pepper and mix all of that in first. 


Then you'll add the egg, egg white, applesauce, and wheat bran.  Mix and mush all that together well.


 Cover it with plastic and refrigerate the mixture for at least 30 minutes or overnight. 


So after 30 mins in the fridge, pre-heat a large non-stick skillet to medium high and coat it lightly with cooking spray. Add the ground turkey mixture and stir to crumble and brown, for about 14 minutes. Always cook turkey to well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. This is what mine looked like when I first put it in the pan. 

While that is frying, chop up the bell peppers.

Reduce heat to medium. Add bell peppers and saute with meat for 5 minutes, continuing to stir and break up the turkey into smaller pieces. Drain the beans and add to the skillet. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
And voila!! this is what it looks like when it's done!

Just add some of this to whole grain tortillas and you're set! I also added some salt to taste, and also some Tabasco sauce which makes it delish!! But that's just the mexican in me coming out.. haha
