Honestly there is nothing better than breakfast powerhouse foods all wrap up into one beautiful burrito. One bite and you get it all. Especially when the cheese oozes out a little and the egg combines with the sweet potato to make a delicious savory and sweet flavor. Ohmygosh, I want another right now!

I’ve only ever tried spinach and kale with eggs for breakfast and have been wanting to combine Swiss Chard with something for awhile. Since Swiss Chard is typically a very strong, almost bitter green, I believe it’s best when it’s sauteed down and the sweetness of the cinnamon and sweet potato really help alleviate any bitterness that may be left in the taste.

I brought these burritos to B’s family for breakfast Sunday to test them out and they received a thumbs up! I’m always hesitate on bringing something new for someone to try and Swiss Chard is definitely new to most people but alas they liked it! So I think I can stay awhile!

    These sound fantastic!! I love eating sweet potatoes as a part of my breakfast, and throwing in some greens is a huge plus! I definitely need to jump on the breakfast burrito bandwagon because I have been missing out.
