Breakfast Veggie Wrap


Breakfast Veggie Wrap

Did your Mom ever tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day?  And yup, Mom is always right.  When I start the day right with a scrumptious and healthy breakfast, I feel energetic and focused, well, at least until lunch time turns around.  I don’t necessarily have all the time and energy to fix something complicated and elaborated in the morning.  Remember, I’m not the morning person type, but more of an night owl!  So, I need a breakfast that I can be prepared quickly to keep myself sane before I get out the door!

Breakfast Veggie Wrap

My hubby always grab his breakfast on the go, too.  So, these Breakfast Veggie Wraps are perfect to fuel our bodies and souls with wonderful flavors and nutrients.  I love these wraps because they are super quick to put together.  You heard me right, you can get breakfast on the table in as little as 15 minutes!  Want to find out what I put in them and how to make these healthy and yummy wraps? 

Breakfast Veggie Wrap

For easy “grab and go” application, I used store bought tortilla wraps for this recipe.  I have them around the house quite often because they are very versatile.  You can use flour, corn, or whole grain tortilla wraps, really, whatever you preferred.  Then, I place a layer of scrambled eggs in the middle of the wrap.   While the eggs are still hot, sprinkle a generous amount of shredded Gruyere cheese on the eggs and the heat from the scrambled eggs will slowly melt the cheese.  I love melted cheese, don’t you?  For the grown up’s, I love to add a few dashes of hot sauce on top of the scrambled eggs, too. 

Ingredients for Breakfast Veggie Wrap

The next layer is the diced vine ripened tomato.  They are sweet and juicy, really add a lovely freshness and texture to the wrap.  I then top it all off with a generous layer of creamy California avocado!  Talk about decadent!  This Breakfast Veggie Wrap is so satisfying that you won’t even miss the meat, at all. 

Breakfast Veggie Wrap

Roll them up and simply wrap them with foil or parchment paper and you are good to go!  My kids love colorful food  (who doesn’t?), and these veggie wraps are one of their favorites!

Last but not least, I’m submitting this post and recipe to the Wake Up Breakfast with California Avocados Link-Up party hosted by Dine and Dish and Cookin’ Canuck.  I can’t wait to check out what others are cooking! 


Breakfast Veggie Wrap







Breakfast Veggie Wrap: (Printable Recipe)
Makes: 2 wraps

3 eggs, whisked
kosher salt to taste
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tortilla wraps (I used flour)
1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
hot sauce (optional)
2 small vine ripened tomatoes, diced
1 California avocado, sliced

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and salt together.  In a large non-stick skillet, heat the butter and olive oil on medium low heat.  Add the eggs and cook until 98% cooked through, remove from heat.  The residual heat from the pan will continued to cook the eggs.  If you cook the eggs all the way through, they’ll ended up too dry.

Evenly divided the eggs and place them in the middle of each tortilla wrap.  Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese on top.  Add a few dashes of hot sauces on the eggs (if using).  Place an even layer of diced tomato on the eggs, followed by the sliced California avocado.  Wrap them up into rolls.

Enjoy as is, or wrap each one in foil or parchment paper if you’re having these on the go!

  6. Hehe my mom always makes veggie & apple juices for breakfast. I remembered that she made sure I drank one big glass of it before school - it has apples, broccoli, and some other veggies I couldn't remember. My mom is not big on wraps or Mexican cuisine (she doesn't like it for some reason), but I love them anyway. I bet these wraps are pretty good with tofu scramble (mmmmm!) & avocado - I do miss avocado! The avocados are really bad here in Buenos Aires.

    1. Sorry that you don't get nice avocado in your area. I'm definitely a big fan. I don't think I love mexican cuisine until I'm a grown up. :) Guess our taste buds do change over time.

    I don't usually eat breakfast, but your veggie wraps look awesome! It inspires me to make it for breakfast this week. Thanks. I'm partial to Haas avocados and love the Louisiana hot sauce, so that's what I would put on my breakfast (or lunch) veggie wrap.

  32. This is a brilliant idea. You could have all your ingredients ready the night before then toss together in the morning. Cooking up eggs takes no time at all. If there's a contest you're sure to win. I love your breakfast on the run. It's healthy, full of color and flavor and high in protein to jump start your day. Looking at your photos I'd like to make one for myself and I don't have to run anywhere at the moment. Great idea!

  45. Brilliant! My brain is not flexible, never thought of eating tortilla wraps for breakfast, but why not! My kids love tortillas (I always say please don't eat it by itself...need to wrap ingredients!). They will be like... "Are we eating lunch?!?" if I serve this for breakfast. It'll be a fun surprise.. Tee hee!
