A breakfast burrito should be three things: portable, quick, and crunchy. Consider all checked with this rich, fall favorite breakfast burrito. Our recipes, easily made in 10 minutes or less, are worth rising and shining for—guaranteed. Just grab and go!

When the air cools and the leaves turn to bright, bold shades of yellow, orange, and red, nothing tastes more satisfying than the heavenly combination of apples and cinnamon. I think we can all agree that it isn’t fall without a warm slice of homemade apple pie. We took it upon ourselves to spice up the season by adding a twist to our nation’s favorite pie—it’s perfect for crisp, cozy sunrises. Good morning, America!

4 large honey crisp apples, sliced
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cornstarch
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
4 multigrain tortillas

1. Preheat oven to broil. Slice apples into wedges.

2. Place apples in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring orange and lemon juices to a boil. Add cinnamon and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Mix cornstarch with the juices for a thicker mixture.

3. Microwave the tortilla for 20 seconds, or until soft. Spoon 1/3 cup apple mixture onto the center of each tortilla and roll and tuck burrito-style. Lay burritos seam side down in an oval cast iron dish.

4. Top with remaining apples and walnuts (if any), sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon over top, and broil for 3 minutes. Serve and savor.

    Not worth the effort. Incomplete instructions. Not enough cornstarch to thicken so I ended up layering vs making burritos. Won’t make again! Tossing over half of it. Disappointing recipe.
