THE BEST OF EVERYTHING: Crispy buffalo chicken breakfast burrito 💥Crispy, saucy chicken with all the goods of a classic breakfast wrap – it’s just SO good. A little extra, but what else would you expect on a Sunday?! Start off with making your crispy chicken — I used crush cornflakes for this. Once the chicken is all set and cooked, I layered on some classic Franks Red Hot for this recipe. I then whipped up the blue cheese sauce, which was super easy. Mix together some blue cheese, yogurt, chives, and, of course, a little salt and pepper. Make a little egg scramble and prep your tortilla for all the goodies. Fill your tortilla with all the ingredients, and then fold it up and place it back on the frying pan. I used a press to use on the burrito while it cooked up for a couple of minutes. If you’re a fan of buffalo chicken like me, then I think you’re going to love this one! The full recipe is below and be sure to check out more of my recipes here for everyday inspo! Happy brunching!
