My boys have a slight obsession with Taco Bell breakfast. They are constantly begging to pick up a bacon or sausage crunchwrap on the weekends. Something about their breakfast is so convenient and flavor packed. Who can blame them for their deep love?

My brother mentioned how easy it is to make your own at home and I knew it would be worth a try. Fast forward a few months and this is one of our go-to breakfast recipes. It is super simple to make, full of flavor, and gives you the feel of take-out without the price tag.

Breakfast Crunchwrap Ingredients

So, what exactly is a breakfast crunchwarp? If you’ve never been to Taco Bell in the AM, this is there breakfast version of the crunchwrap supreme. A soft tortilla is loaded with savory sausage or crumbled bacon, fluffy eggs, a crispy baked hash brown and so much cheese before being grilled to perfection.

The best part is that the fillings are completely customizable so you can add/take out any ingredient you’d like. Here is what you’ll need to whip these up yourself:

  • Bacon: Or sausage. You can cook and crumble either one of these breakfast meats to add inside your wrap.
  • Eggs: Scrambled eggs are one of my favorite things to make. They are so super simple but you can add almost anything to boost the flavor.
  • Hash browns: Specifically, a hash brown patty. These are so inexpensive and can be found in the freezer section of most grocers. We picked up a pack for around $1 at Trader Joe’s.
  • Cheese: Here’s another place you can get creative. While cheddar cheese is traditional, we’ve loaded ours up with pepper jack as well.
  • Tortillas: Reach for the giant burrito size so you can fold all of the goodness inside without it sneaking out.
  • Jalapeno Cream Sauce: The recipe for this is below, but you can actually purchase this pre-made at some stores. I found a bottle on Amazon (affiliate) for around $7.

Taco Bell Breakfast Crunchwrap Sauce

For the first few weeks that we made our own breakfast crunchwrap recipe we opted to not include a sauce. The ones you purchase at Taco Bell include it. After testing recipes we finally found one that is EXACTLY like theirs and makes all the difference.

The recipe we use is from Key to My Lime. I’ll share a list of ingredients, but hop over to her website for the full recipe.

  • Mayo
  • Sour Cream
  • Jalapeno Juice
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Garlic (we used powder)
  • Onion Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper

The sauce is optional, but well worth the extra 5 minutes of prep time. Leftovers are delicious on quesadillas and tacos!

Recipe Tips and FAQs

Can you freeze a homemade crunchwrap?

Yes! This recipe is super freezer friendly. All you need to do is cook and cool completely. Wrap in plastic wrap and transfer to a freezer safe container or bag. Keep frozen for up to 2 months.
When ready to eat, simply heat on a skillet until warmed through and serve.

Is a breakfast crunchwrap good?

Yes. The beauty of this recipe is that it combines simple ingredients that blend together perfectly. Even the pickiest eater will love this morning treat.

What sauce is best with this recipe?

Like I mentioned above, we really love a homemade jalapeno cream sauce with this recipe. However, you could also serve this with hot sauce, salsa, and even sour cream.

What meat can you use in this recipe?

We’re a divided household on this answer. But the good news is almost any breakfast meat will taste delicious. Half of us love sausage, the other half are strict bacon fans. This would even taste great with chopped peppers and onions for a vegetarian version!
