They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so naturally, making it count is of the utmost importance. While entirely plausible in theory, when it comes to busy workdays, skipping out on the meal—or allowing coffee to step in as a not-so-nutritious substitution—tends to become the norm. That is, until now.

In true on-the-go fashion, we set out to find the breakfast recipes that not only travel well but can also sustain our appetites well into the middle of the day. Wraps, sandwiches, or whatever it is that you may call them, the breakfast burrito recipes ahead might just inspire you to rethink the breakfast classic. Take a look.
