The History of the Breakfast Burrito

Monday, February 6, 2017 | 8:33 pm

It’s time to learn more about one of everyone’s favorite foods – the breakfast burrito.. The word burrito means “little donkey.” The reason for this is unknown. The most popular theory is that it was served out of the back of donkey carts. Certainly donkey has never been an ingredient. Some theories suggest burritos look like the bed rolls donkeys often carried, and more creative types have suggested they look like donkey’s ears… to be honest everyone seems to be dancing around the “little donkey” idea without much guidance.

An authentic burrito is actually a rather plain mix of beans, meat, and rice or cheese. But, today, creativity is king. Stuff your burrito with eggs, cheese, sausage and any combination your heart desires. The frozen burrito was invented in 1964 in California and was an instant hit. “Breakfast burritos” were invented some time in the early 1970s and have been a staple ever since.
