It’s time for kids to go back to school this week and getting back to a routine and healthy habits have been on my mind. Mind you, with the strangely hot weather at the moment, I’ve indulged in a treat or two…. but at least I always have a good breakfast to set myself and the family up for the day.

I love the versatility of this recipe to prepare – you can cut out the cheese, use gluten free or high protein tortillas, and you can pimp up the tortilla by adding cooked veg like mushrooms and cherry tomatoes at the adding cheese stage. You are in control of what you want to do ๐Ÿ™‚ The best thing is you can also freeze these tortillas in advance and zap them in the microwave when you want them (best to defrost a bit before doing that), so you always have a high protein breakfast to go when you need something quick.

A super easy delicious and healthy breakfast burrito to keep you going throughout the day.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time5 minsCook Time1 minTotal Time6 mins

 2 large eggs
 1 regular sized tortilla wrap
 3 tbsp cheddar cheese (I like mild but any cheddar will do)
 1 pinch mixed herbs or oregano
 1 tsp vegetable oil
 salt to taste

1

This recipe requires very simple ingredients for a quick and healthy breakfast.

2

Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk until mixed. Add salt and a pinch of mixed herbs to taste here. As I am trying to reduce my salt intake, I usually leave salt out.

3

Add oil to pan and then pour in the egg mixture.

4

Let the egg mixture cook until it's 1/2 way cooked then sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top. Let it cook for another 30 seconds

5

Add the tortilla wrap to the mixture. At this stage the egg mixture is still slightly sticky but this is important as this will "glue" the tortilla wrap to the egg mixture.

6

Leave the tortilla wrap for about 30 seconds to settle then flip the tortilla wrap so the tortilla wrap is faced down. Now leave for 1 minute to crisped the wrap.

7

Now plate up the wrap, roll it up and then cut in half and serve.

8

If you want to make this in advance, you can freeze the tortilla wrap in cling film. Take out of the freezer overnight to thaw and zap in the microwave to warm up.

    I was today thinking I need to increase the protein in my squad swimming daughter’s breakfast. I opened your page and saw this. I can’t wait to try it out!

        They were a hit! Full bellies, and breakfast eaten in record time (because only one breakfast was required instead of the usual three courses!). The kids have requested this again tomorrow๐Ÿ˜‹

        Thank you for the inspiration. I now have another dish to add to the breakfast routine and this one is super quick to prepare ๐Ÿ˜Š
