Taco Bell breakfast

Taco Bell is a favorite late-night hotspot for cheap and quick grub, But if you’re someone who has to skip the nightlife because you have to work a job in the morning, you are pretty much out of luck. Most Taco Bell restaurants don’t open their doors until at least midmorning and that’s a shame because there is one item on the menu, the Taco Bell Breakfast Crunchwrap, that is the ultimate breakfast fiesta.

Never had it? Well, think of it as a Taco Bell breakfast burrito taken to a higher plane of existence. It comes loaded with eggs, cheese, bacon, and hash browns, all spiced with Taco Bell sauce and sandwiched between two crunchy tortillas! You shouldn’t have to wait to chow down on this delicious dish. Don’t worry. The recipe below will let you make a breakfast crunchwrap whenever you get a craving for one!

About the breakfast crunchwrap

The breakfast crunchwrap comes in two different ways. You can get it with either bacon or breakfast sausage. I personally love the breakfast crunchwrap with bacon. If you are a vegetarian, you could make one without meat.

Inside the crunchwrap, you will find crispy hash browns, bacon or sausage, melty cheese, and taco sauce. A flour tortilla is wrapped and cooked on a griddle until the tortilla just begins to brown. These flavors go so well together that you won’t be disappointed.

If you do have to make a stop in the morning and grab breakfast, I promise this is something you will want to get for breakfast.

When you make a crunchwrap at home you may be able to do several at once so you can heat them before you go to work. I love to cook a few meals on the weekends so I can save some money during the week because I don’t have to eat out.

What makes the Taco Bell breakfast crunchwrap the perfect way to start your day

This meal is the perfect on-the-go breakfast for busy people. You can enjoy all of the components of a traditional breakfast (eggs, potatoes, and meat) inside a crispy shell with delicious homemade sauce and cheese.

It’s not only convenient, but it also makes breakfast more exciting. Let’s face it: It can be boring eating the same breakfast foods over and over. Luckily, this recipe transforms your favorite breakfast fare into something magical that reminds you of your favorite Taco Bell menu item.

Not to mention, it’s much healthier when made from scratch, and your body will receive tons of protein from eggs, bacon or sausage, and cheese. This appetizing morning meal will fuel your body and start your day on a positive note.

Why you’ll love this breakfast crunch wrap recipe

I love this recipe because it’s super quick to make, yet the food is of high quality. It only takes 20 minutes in total, and if you don’t have that much time in the morning, you can always prepare it ahead of time and reheat it later.

You’ll love how the recipe consists of simple ingredients that you likely already have stocked in your house. The only component that you might not have is the Taco Bell sauce, which you can easily whip up.

Lastly, this copycat Taco Bell recipe allows for experimentation and the use of extra ingredients. Feel free to include anything extra you have on hand.

Ingredients you will need

Here’s a list of what you need:

  • Flour tortillas – large burrito size
  • Eggs
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Cooked hash browns or hash brown patties
  • Taco Bell sauce
  • Bacon

You will also need non-stick cooking spray.

Taco Bell Breakfast Crunchwrap ingredients

It all starts with perfect scrambled eggs

All of the other components of the dish you can make ahead of time, but you should cook the eggs fresh for the best results. Cooking great eggs is deceiving complex. It is pretty easy to cook decent ones, but who wants to settle for just okay eggs when you can make outstanding eggs with a bit of technique?

  1. Start with room-temperature eggs. Cold eggs turn into dense, rubbery scrambled eggs, while room-temperature eggs turn out nice and fluffy.
  2. Stir well. The goal is not to merely break up the yolks and incorporate them into the egg whites but to really whip them with a whisk, not a fork. The eggs should lighten slightly in color.
  3. Melt butter in the pan and let it foam. When the butter stops foaming, add the eggs and let them sit until the edges start to dry out. Then use a rubber spatula to begin folding the eggs from the edge into the center. Folding the eggs in this way will give you large, more tender curds.
  4. Don’t overcook the eggs. Remember, the eggs will get another blast of heat when you cook them in the crunchwrap, so remove them from the pan when they are still a little less cooked than you like them.

After cooking the eggs, it is pretty simple to assemble the wrap.

How to make a breakfast crunchwrap

  1. Cook bacon until crisp. Crumble bacon.
  2. Fry hashbrowns until browned and crispy.
  3. Scramble eggs, by breaking three large eggs into a bowl and whisking them together.
  4. Spray a skillet with non-stick spray and place it over medium heat.
  5. Pour eggs into the skillet and season them with salt and pepper.
  6. Stir eggs in the skillet until they have cooked thoroughly. Remove from the burner and set eggs aside.

  1. Lay a tortilla in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Warm the tortilla on each side for about 30 seconds to make the tortilla very pliable.
  3. To build the crunch wrap, start by adding cooked hash browns or a hash brown patty. Add half of the eggs, sauce, cheese, and bacon.

  4. Flip over the crunchwrap and cook for an additional 30 to 40 seconds.
  5. Slice and serve with taco sauce or your favorite hot sauce.

Recipe tips for preparing the other components of homemade breakfast crunchwraps

  • Bake the bacon in the oven. Preparing bacon in the oven is a lot easier and less messy than cooking it on the stovetop, especially if you plan to feed a crowd. Place the bacon on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 14 to 18 minutes, depending on the bacon’s thickness. When done, blot the bacon with a paper towel and allow it to cool on a rack. You can store the bacon in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Make homemade hash browns, or you can buy the frozen hash brown patties and cook those. I personally think the loose homemade hash browns are a better choice because you can spread them out in the tortilla. However, the pre-made patties make assembling and eating the Crunchwrap a whole lot easier.
  • Make your own Taco Bell sauce. This recipe for mild taco sauce is just like the one they serve in the restaurant.

Recipe variations

Here are some ways to make your homemade version to your taste:

  • Add veggies. This recipe is extra flavorful when you add vegetables. For instance, throw in some diced jalapeños, bell peppers, or onions- even some sauteed mushrooms or spinach taste incredible with the eggs and potatoes.
  • Switch up the cheese. Swap cheddar cheese for another type, such as pepper jack or Swiss. Both of these cheeses melt nicely and give a unique flavor to the crunchwrap.
  • Add other types of meat. Include other meats like steak, diced ham, or Canadian bacon to craft a meat lovers’ crunchwrap. You can mix them with bacon or sausage.
  • Serve it with creamy jalapeño sauce. This homemade Taco Bell quesadilla sauce is a good one.

How to make these ahead and reheat later

There are a couple of ways you can do this, depending on whether you want to assemble them fully or not. The first option is to make all the components the day before and then reheat the ingredients in the microwave the morning of. Then, load the tortilla with the hot ingredients and crispen it up quickly on the stovetop to complete it.

Another option is to fully build the crunch wraps and store them until needed. Then, you can either reheat them in a skillet over medium-low heat or an air fryer. I wouldn’t recommend microwaving them once the tortilla is involved, as it can make the outer layer soft, and you will miss out on the crunchiness (which is one of the best parts of a crunch wrap).

How to store

For fully assembled crunchwraps, allow them to cool before you individually wrap each one. You can double-layer wrap them with plastic wrap and then aluminum foil. You can either refrigerate or freeze them.

How long will they last?

They hold up in the refrigerator for 3-4 days or in the freezer for a longer shelf life, about 2-3 months. Thaw them in the refrigerator before reheating.

  • 2 flour tortillas
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup hash browns or 2 fried hash brown patties
  • 4 tablespoons Taco Bell Sauce
  • 4 pieces bacon cooked cripsy
  • Taco Bell Sauce


  • Prepare scrambled eggs, by breaking three large eggs into a bowl and whisking them together with a fork. Pour eggs into a non-stick skillet over medium heat that you have sprayed with non-stick spray. 
  • Season eggs with salt and pepper, and stir eggs in pan until they have cooked thoroughly. Remove from burner and set eggs aside. Use a large skillet over medium heat to warm tortillas. Lay tortilla in the skillet, and warm on each side for about 30 seconds. 
  • You want the tortilla very pliable. To build the crunch wrap start by adding 1/4 cup cooked hash browns or 1 cooked hash brown patty. Add half of the eggs, 2 tablespoons of the taco bell sauce, 1 tablespoon cheese, and two pieces of bacon crumbled. 
  • To close Crunch Wrap, flip the side closest to you, to the center, then flip the right and left side to the center. Finish by closing the top of the crunch wrap by closing the the right and left side to the center. You will end up with a five-sided wrap. Spray the skillet you used to heat the tortilla in with some non-stick spray, heat for about 30-40 seconds on medium heat and then flip the wrap and heat on the other side. Both sides should be golden brown.

    Can you make a bunch and freeze? How long will they last in the fridge if I make them ahead? I just don’t have time during the week to make breakfast – thank you

    • Stephanie Manley

      I think you could make these ahead of time and then reheat them in say a toaster oven or an air fryer. I would think they would last for about 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. They would last for up to 3 months in the freezer.

  2. Lindsey

    Thank you so much Stephanie! Both myself and my son love these crunch wraps! This tastes just the same, without having to spend the extra money! I am going to follow whatever recipes you post.
    . Thanks so much,
    . Lindsey

  3. CyndiP

    Thank you for doing this. My son loves crunch wraps but now as a vegetarian, he is thrilled that I made the AM crunch wrap from scratch.

  4. Karen Yocum

    A big part of what I like is that they put their quesadilla sauce in it. I’ve found a copy-cat version of that for those that are missing that particular flavor! SO much cheaper to make this at home, then I don’t feel compelled to get a combo & eat the cinna-bon bites that I don’t need, but love

    I’m so excited for Taco Bell breakfast. I haven’t been able to try it yet but this is on the top of my list.

  6. ladyrideraz

    Ugh too fattening. Might try it with egg substitute but even then not going to have it more than once a month if that.

    • stephaniemanley

      Randi, if you make the sauce that is listed with the recipe, I think you will find it comes out very close.

    • Teri

      Just a good old bean burrito…with green sauce. I love their green sauce! But the Fire Sauce is pretty tasty too. Glad I don’t have to go to Taco Bell anymore and stuff my pockets with them!
