Instant Pot Breakfast Burritos are the perfect easy breakfast for busy mornings or for overnight guests. Experiment with using a variety of ingredients to add to the eggs for a unique flavor experience every time.
You know how I feel about my Instant Pot. Magic happens inside this cute little appliance and it also simplifies my life in such a huge way. Once the lid is locked, I am free to walk away to take care of other important tasks.
Breakfast tends to be a crazy time in our house and I don’t think I’m alone in this. Mornings are busy! Utilize your trusty pressure cooker in the mornings, too, friends. It’s not just for dinner recipes!
The egg mixture comes together so easily and it turns out perfectly every single time. Once you pull it out of the pot it is ready to be scooped into tortillas and enjoyed! Perfection!
HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT BREAKFAST BURRITOS
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Stir in the salt, pepper and extras.
Coat a round 6- or 7-inch cake pan with cooking spray and pour the egg mixture into it. (Placing a pan inside the Instant Pot is also called PIP or pot in pot method.) Cover tightly with foil.
Pour 1 1/2 cups water into the Instant Pot and lower the PIP down using the trivet.
Place the cover on the pot, set steam release handle to sealing and set timer to 25 minutes on high pressure (use the pressure cook setting). It will take the IP around 9 minutes to build up pressure before it begins cooking.
When cooking is done, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes then do a quick release and allow the float valve to drop.
Carefully remove the pan from the pot by pulling up the trivet. Remove foil and use a fork to fluff the eggs.
Sprinkle cheese over the top and allow to melt.
Scoop the mixture into tortillas and roll into burritos. Top with desired toppings and serve!

HOW LONG ARE EGGS GOOD FOR?
When properly stored in the refrigerator, eggs can be used 5 weeks after the sell date listed on the carton. The sooner they are used, the fresher they will be.
CAN DOGS EAT EGGS?
When thoroughly, eggs are a nutritious and delicious snack for dogs. They are even sometimes used to help settle digestive systems for canines.
