About Tofu Potato Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Breakfast burritos are typically made with eggs and potatoes. I decided to use tofu that was made using this recipe instead of eggs. Since tofu is rich in protein, it makes for a perfect egg substitute if you do not eat eggs. Breakfast burritos were introduced to me during an office potluck and it has become my favorite since. The filling is versatile and you can use frozen hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, etc. The burritos were served with a side of colored pepper salsa and it was an instant hit.
