Breakfast Wraps

Shout out to my Freezers Pleasers book! This recipe was inspired by Page 140's Breakfast Wraps.

I don't do ham though, so I used spinach instead.

Made a bunch this weekend to freeze and I'm eating them for breakfast-on-the-go all week.

Ingredients (makes 8 wraps):

  • 4 eggs & 12 egg whites
  • 1 frozen package of spinach (defrost in microwave for 3 minutes)
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup of chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup of chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup of low fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of italian seasoning
  • 8 wheat 8 inch tortillas
  • Olive oil spray

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, egg whites, milk, italian seasoning, & pepper.
  2. Mix in vegetables & cheese.
  3. Spray large skillet with olive oil spray and heat.
  4. Add half of mixture to skillet and cook through. The less eggy you like it, the more you cook it.
  5. Spoon egg mixture into each tortilla. Wrap up and serve immediately.
  6. Or wrap in plastic wrap & ziplock bag. Freeze to keep longer.
  7. Repeat with other half of mixture to make more tortillas.

I would love to know that you visited my blog or tried out a recipe. Leave me some love & encouragement!

jilly! this is amazing! i want to do this next weekend. holy cow! i'm such a lazy bum in the morning, so this would be perfect. how long before you want to eat it do you take it out of the freezer? :c)

Defrost in the fridge overnight, so it's ready for you in the morning. Heat in microwave for about a minute and a half, wrapped loosely in paper towel.

I've ordered the Freezer Pleasers cookbook :) What I would like to know though - what are you doing with all that leftover yolk? Can I substitute the 12 egg whites with 6 whole eggs maybe?

Jill said...

Yes, good point. It is kind of wasteful. I use egg whites instead of egg yolks to keep the weight watcher points down. If I use 1 egg & 3 egg whites for every four wraps, then I keep the point count down to 3 points per serving. Feel free to use all eggs instead. The freezer pleaser recipe actually calls for 6 eggs for four tortillas, so that is what you should use.

You've listed 1/2 cup of chopped onions twice. I figure there should be only one of them, but does one of them represent some other ingredient.

Jill said...

Leslie, thanks for letting me know. That was a mistake. It should be 1/2 a cup of green pepper (or any other vegetable of your choice). I'm a school teacher, I should do a better job of proof-reading!

I've been thinking and will probably make this with turkey leftover from Thanksgiving. BTW, I used to work with your Mom and she passed on your blog. I'm really enjoying it.

if you don't want to waste yolks, you can also buy the "egg whites" eggbeaters, it may be a bit more pricey but then you aren't wasting all those yolks. cuz i'm right there with you - i want to save the WW pts, but i also don't like throwing away yolks. here's another blog about what to do with leftover yolks, and there're lots of good suggestions:
