Introduction

Breakfast Burrito Rolls are filled with fiber, protein and can be easily made in the oven. I love them because of the crunch. Once you have the filling ready, you need to fill them up and bake them in the oven. Make them ahead of time and you can freeze them for a later use. Everyone in family loved it and I am sure you will too. Enjoy these on weekends or busy week days. These are filled with black beans, paneer, veggies and few spices.  The cheese adds to wow factor to these delicious burrito rolls. 

You can make these burritos for breakfast or enjoy them during weeknights. I plan to serve these for Diwali or Holiday parties and mini version of these would make an amazing appetizer for festivals.
