Creating Your Breakfast Egg Wrap

Scrambling the Eggs with Ham:

  1. Prepare the Mixture: In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper, and chives until well-blended.
  2. Cook the Eggs: Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the diced ham and cook for a minute or two until it starts to brown slightly. Pour the egg mixture over the ham. Stir gently, allowing the eggs to softly scramble with the ham. Cook until the eggs are just set but still moist. They will continue cooking with the residual heat.
  3. Add Cheese: Just before the eggs are fully set, sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top. Let it melt into the warm eggs and ham, creating a gooey, cheesy layer.

Assembling Your Breakfast Wrap:

  1. Warm the Tortillas: To make the tortillas more pliable and easier to roll, briefly warm them in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds or in a dry skillet over medium heat for a few seconds on each side.
  2. Fill the Wraps: Lay out the warmed tortillas on a flat surface. Evenly distribute the scrambled egg and ham mixture down the center of each tortilla.
  3. Roll it Up: Fold the bottom edge of the tortilla up over the filling. Then, fold in the sides and roll tightly into a burrito-style wrap. Ensure the filling is snugly enclosed.
  4. Serve with Garnish: Cut the wraps in half, if desired, and serve immediately with salsa and sour cream on the side for dipping.

Storage and Meal Prep Tips

Refrigeration:

  • Cool: Allow the egg wraps to cool to room temperature before storing.
  • Store: Wrap individually in foil or place in an airtight container; they’re good for 1-2 days in the fridge.

Freezing:

  • Wrap: Prepare without salsa and sour cream, wrap securely, and freeze.
  • Reheat: Thaw overnight in the fridge or reheat from frozen, ensuring a convenient and quick breakfast option.

  • Make-Ahead: A perfect candidate for meal prep, prepare multiple wraps in advance for a grab-and-go breakfast or a brown bag lunch.

What to Serve With Breakfast Egg Wrap Burrito

Elevating your Breakfast Egg Wrap into a fuller meal or a brunch spread is all about the sides.

Here are some delightful accompaniments that pair wonderfully with the savory flavors of the egg, cheese, and ham wrap, ensuring a balanced and satisfying meal:

  • Fresh Fruit Salad: A light and refreshing side, a fruit salad brings sweetness and vibrancy to your meal, balancing the savory richness of the wrap. Mix together seasonal fruits like berries, melon, and citrus for a colorful complement.
  • Greek Yogurt with Honey and Granola: For a touch of sweetness, serve your wrap with a side of Greek yogurt topped with honey and granola. This not only adds a creamy texture but also introduces a crunchy element to the meal.
  • Mixed Greens Salad: A simple salad with a light vinaigrette can add a fresh and tangy element to your breakfast, cutting through the richness of the wrap for a balanced bite.
