Scrambled Egg Wrap Recipe with Spinach, Tomato & Feta Cheese

Scrambled Egg Wrap Recipe with Spinach, Tomato & Feta Cheese #recipe #healthy #breakfast

What happened to Saturday mornings? When my kids were little, the first morning of the weekend meant nothing more than a couple of episodes Scooby-Doo, a load or two of laundry and a leisurely breakfast of pancakes or waffles. Times have changed for us and I’m sure many of you are in the same boat.

Nine o’clock soccer games mean early-bird long runs. Actually, my running partner and I meet on our designated corner before the birds have even considered uttering their first tweets. A long run, a quick shower and a slap-job of makeup to cover up the under-eye bags from the Friday night partying (ha…yeah, right) leaves about ten minutes for breakfast. Pancakes and waffles are not happening.

Sometimes a bowl filled with my favorite yogurt parfait will do the trick, but other times the whole family is craving something warm “to go”. Breakfast wraps work perfectly for those mornings.

The night before, whisk together the eggs, chop the spinach and cut the tomatoes in half. In the morning, all you have to do is throw it all together in a pan, scoop the mixture into whole wheat wraps with a little feta cheese and basil, and head to the car. It’s a high-protein, high-fiber breakfast that will keep the whole family fueled up for the morning. Plus, you’ll already have a serving or two of vegetables under your belt before noon.

The recipe:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and water. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes are starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes.

Stir in the spinach and cook until the spinach is wilted, about 1 minute.

Pour in the egg mixture, salt and pepper, and cook until the eggs are scrambled, stirring occasionally.

Place tortillas on 2 plates and spoon half of the egg mixture down the center of each tortilla leaving room at each end.

Fold in the ends, roll up the tortillas, then cut each wrap in half. Serve.

Yum! These remind me of the spinach feta wraps at Starbucks. They are one of my favorite things to get when I’m on the go. My sister-in-law and I have mentioned how much we wish we could just make them at home (to save money.) I’m going to give these a try!

My first thought when I saw this post was that I finally had a recipe to try to match my favorite Starbucks breakfast wrap. (Which is particularly useful as, after a recent move, the nearest Starbucks is a 45-minute drive away.) Thank you! : )

These look like a great weekday breakfast as well! I’m curious what brand of whole wheat wraps you like? I’ve been trying to find one that I can enjoy and replace the flour one’s with as we are working on healthier eating in my family, too.

Many of your recipes, such as this egg and spinach wrap, Dara, make me want to have lunch at your home every day. I love lunch, I usually eat it late. As always too great job with the photographs.

Dara,
I hear ya on Saturday mornings, though here it is wheelchair basketball not soccer. I’m kinda happy for the climate controlled environment–my friends have to sit through their kids’ games in all kinds of weather! I get the ‘sitting in cold’ part during sled hockey, but I’ve not experienced precipitation during any of my kids’ sporting events. Yay!
These wraps look like a tasty healthy handy way to get out the door quickly.
Thanks!
