The Best Breakfast Wraps

I've posted this recipe before I think, but I to share again because they are so good.

I've been freezing things lately in preparation of me being even more tired towards the end of the pregnancy, and the baby coming.

It's like I'm freezer nesting.

I have been searching for something healthy to eat while on the run in the morning - which currently is every morning in our family. It gets to expensive to run through somewhere a few times a week for my breakfast burrito fix. I was on a mission to make my own healthy, high protein, breakfast wraps.

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

I bought some high protein tortilla shells, Salsa, Southwest Egg Beaters, and some Gimmie Lean veggie sausage. Now listen, veggie "meat" doesn't always sound great to everyone - but it is really good, especially in this mix. I don't ever buy or make regular sausage for lots o' reasons, but I do actually like the taste. So the Gimmie Lean works like magic.

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


 Then I scooped some on each tortilla and wrapped them 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.

Yummy. Quick. Healthy.

I pop them in the microwave for about 2ish minutes, and they're ready to go!

Great, right?! Go ahead, you know you want to try them :).

Look delicious! Good thinking stocking the freezer now! I just tried a new recipe called "Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos." They were really yummy! Here's the link: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Addictive-Sweet-Potato-Burritos/Detail.aspx. I used black beans instead of kidney beans.

I like that you are freezer nesting - that's so cute. :)

Those look REALLY good! And I don't really like sausage, but I do like the taste of sausage when it's mixed in so I'm thinking I need to try the gimme lean kind :)

I really need to try this recipe.
Did you get the veggie sausage stuff at Trader Joe's?

Sounds like a really quick, easy, and yummy breakfast option! I've tried a lot of different veggie meats and some are really good (even though it seems like they should be pretty gross). I don't think I've ever had Gimme Lean, but I'll have to check it out!

I freezer nested, too, before my third child was born. I kept making casserole after casserole, and I just couldn't seem to stop. However, after she was born, it was very nice to have all those meals in the freezer!

I must live under a rock..... I did not know you could freeze such things. I have a normal {largeish} freezer PLUS a massive fridge size freezer downstairs in my laundry which are full to the brim... but I will make room for some of these. Brilliant. Can you tell me more about vege sausage????? Do you not eat meat? Is Sausage in the US not really 'meat'???? tell me, I love learning about your food...... I think our "sausage" meat here decades ago was a bit 'not really proper meat' but now that regulations are stricter it's all beef/lamb/chicken...... whatever. I don't like sausages much though.... I would substitute bacon maybe???

I'm getting hungry now... and it's 8.30pm! Goodnight! XX
