These make-ahead egg wraps are great for on-the-go breakfasts. This version is filled with hard-boiled egg, ham, avocado and salsa.
We all know that time flies but, really, this is ridiculous. I'm certain it was just yesterday that my boys sprung out of bed, ready to enjoy the first day of summer holidays. And for that matter, wasn't it just last week that they took their first steps, blew out their first birthday candles, told me "I wub you" for the first time? Another summer has flown and we are a mere week away from the first day of school. It has been a full year since I posted their back-to-school picture, arms draped around each other, backpacks filled with newly sharpened pencils and Nutella Sugar Sandwich Cookies. Now it is time to set my mind to quick and easy breakfast options for those busy school morning.
That's when I turn to eggs for something a little different, easy to prepare and packed with nutrients. The components of this wrap, which include hard-boiled eggs, ham, avocado and salsa, can be prepared the night before and quickly assembled in the morning for a quick sit down or "to-go" breakfast.
I know I am not alone when I say that my kids are very active and require meals packed with nutrients to help them through the day. My eldest son is very involved in soccer, practicing or playing with his team up to four times per week. My younger son started taking kung-fu a few months ago and claims to need extra energy to perform his best "flying Ninja kicks" - his words. On days of important soccer games and kung-fu classes, it is important to start them off with a breakfast that is full of healthy protein and provides them with the extra energy they will need to kick balls and punching bags with gusto. For our family, that means a meal of eggs, whole wheat toast or wraps and fresh fruit.
There are times when I have a few extra minutes to whip up a batch of scrambled eggs or personal sized frittatas. On other mornings, however, time is so short that turning on the burner seems like an insurmountable task. That's where hard-boiled eggs come into play. I can make a large batch to last for several days. Not only do they work as an afternoon snack to tide me over until dinner, but they are very handy for breakfasts that need to be made at warp speed.
This wrap can be made with any selection of ingredients - shredded cheese, chopped tomatoes, grated zucchini, chopped turkey, black beans...the list goes on. Use your imagination and your family's palate as a guide.
How to make make-ahead egg wrap recipe
Slice each hard-boiled eggs horizontally into about 5 slices.
Lay the slices down the center of each whole wheat tortilla. Divide the diced ham and avocado slices between the 4 tortillas, laying over top of the egg slices.
Spoon your favorite tomato salsa over the avocado slices.
Wrap by folding up the bottom of each tortilla and folding in the sides. Serve on a plate or wrap in plastic wrap for a "to-go" meal.

This is looks super yummy!! Thanks for sharing!
The perfect nutrient-packed hand-held breakfast! Great recipe and photography! Will share with other avocado and breakfast lovers on our FB Page/Recipes and Tips App with an incoming link! THANKS for the delicious recipe!
What a great idea. I'm always pressed for time in the morning and as much as I like a breakfast wrap, taking time to cook the egg isn't always appealing. Having the HB eggs on hand makes this is a much healthier egg-salad variety -- no mayo required and good fats from the avocado. This goes on the "to make list" for the week!
I love that this is make-ahead. I need that these days, and I can only assume that once school actually starts I'll be more in need of that.
Very good idea. I love the avocado in there too.
That's what I call a protein packed meal for a flying ninja boy. I have to say it looks like the perfect breakfast, lunch or quick dinner for all of us!
