Breakfast Wraps

These have become a staple in our home - I love them. So I thought I'd share, cause maybe someone else might love 'em too :)

I have been searching for something healthy to eat while on the run in the morning - which currently is every morning in our family. I wanted to make a healthy, lower calorie, high protein, breakfast wrap.

I love wraps. You wrap it, I love it.

Anyway.

I bought some high protein tortilla shells, Salsa, Southwest Egg Beaters, and some Gimmie Lean veggie sausage. Now listen, I know, veggie "meat" didn't sound great to me at first either - mainly because I am not a huge meat eater. But it works perfect for this recipe, and w/ everything mixed together, it's really good!

I cooked the "Gimmie Lean" and the eggs in seperate pans. Then mixed them together, and added the Salsa to taste.

Then I scooped some on each tortilla, and wrapped it up...


I made about 20 of them to freeze. After I wrapped them, I layed them on a baking sheet to stick in the freezer. After they were frozen, I took them out and wrapped them in aluminum foil, and stuck them back in the freezer. I figured them out to be about 200 calories each - nice, huh?

Yummy. Quick. Healthy.

I pop them in the microwave for about 2ish minutes, and...that's it! Great, right?!

That is an AWESOME idea! I heart the breakfast burritos from Sonic... this looks like a quick, healthy alternative! Thanks for sharing!

Yummy! And thanks to you, we now make yummy "pop tarts" at home too quite often! ;)

Can I please steal one from your freezer before I commit to making them on my own? Pretty please? :)

Crystal said...

Yum! And to be able to make a bunch and eat them as you go is such a plus!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and reading my twin series! I would love to share your ensight with my readers if you're ever interested!

Your girls are precious! 2 sets of twins... wow! I only have one set and then three singletons. They keep me busy! :-)

Good idea! I wouldn't have thought freezing eggs would taste good--I will definitely try this idea!

My family LOVES breakfast wraps. However, I hadn't thought of freezing them to make them a quick breakfast. Great idea.

We love egg burritos in our home too! Not sure if you ever tried La Tortilla Factory Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas. They are only 80cals per tortilla for the large ones and 50cals for the smaller size! Also they taste great and can't tell that they are low cal/low carb! :-)

We actually use them for all of our meals too – breakfast (egg burritos), lunch (all types of wraps such as turkey, veggie..etc) and dinner (pizzas, quesadillas...etc) although they can be also used for snacks (with fruit..etc).
If you are interested, we list one of my favorite recipes (Italian Veggie Pizza) on our site. It's also a quick, easy to make, can cut all of the ingredients before hand and it's healthy! :-) It's low calorie (only 195 calories per pizza if you use the tortilla and low cal cheese - we use lifetime cheese although any low cal one would work great).

Hope you like the recipe and thanks again for the great tips.

Quick easy breakfasts are always a must.

We had chicken wraps for the first time for tea last night. I think I am a fan of the wrap too. Thanks for this recipe idea.

Yum yum yum! We love breakfast burritos in our house, and these would be an awesome, healthy, quick way to have them more often. Thanks for sharing!

Mmmm. Those look yummy. I'm sure they're cheaper than me buying a $1.29 wrap from Dunkin Donuts.

I gave you an award on my blog! Check it out!

We use the 'no meat' stuff too. Not too bad, huh? ;)
