This grab-and-go breakfast doesn't take long to make in the morning. But if even the thought of scrambling a few eggs and rolling them up in a tortilla seems like more than you can handle when you've got a hectic start to your day, an easy alternative is to make these Egg and Ham Breakfast Wraps ahead, refrigerate or freeze them, then pop them in the microwave to heat. Frozen wraps will reheat more evenly if you first thaw them overnight in the fridge.
Egg and Ham Breakfast Wraps
Makes 4 wraps
- 8 eggs 3 tbsp milk
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 2 tsp oil
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup diced cooked ham
- 4 large whole wheat flour tortillas (9 to 10 inches, about 60 g each)
Whisk eggs, milk and pepper in a small bowl. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook, stirring frequently, until eggs are nearly set. Stir in cheese and ham; cook until eggs are set. Spoon scrambled egg mixture over the centre of each tortilla. For each tortilla, fold up two opposite sides, then starting from a third side, roll up tortilla completely enclosing filling. Serve immediately. Or let cool, then wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Next day, microwave on High until heated through, 40 to 60 seconds. Tips: * Wraps can be frozen. Once cooled, wrap in plastic wrap, then place in a resealable plastic bag in the freezer for up to 1 month.
To serve, thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove plastic wrap. Microwave on High until heated through, 40 to 60 seconds.
- If desired, chopped cooked sweet peppers, broccoli, ham or sausage can be substituted for the ham.
- Another cheese can be used in place of Cheddar.
- Use a flavoured tortilla - e.g. spinach or tomato and basil.
