Cooking up Memories-Breakfast Wraps #Recipe #MealIdeas

Now that January has arrived, many of you are busy making those pesky resolutions and wondering how to keep them.

I have an easy #MealIdea to help!

I developed this wrap at the restaurant one spring when the tree planters were in town. They could eat like, well, tree planters, lol.

My grandson dressed up for Christmas- my café in the background

I only had room for fifty guests and a grill no more than three feet wide, but none of that mattered when those kids came to town. They would fill the booths and had no problem with pitching in to help my girls serve them.

One young man even took off his boots at the door because they were muddy! They were the best of customers and I really miss their smiles. They loved their breakfasts and especially liked my place for the cooked to order items. No pre-made sausages or bacon in my restaurant!

Blessed to be highlighted in this foodie guide!

The wrap I’m sharing today was a favorite with my customers.

Breakfast Wrap

3 large eggs

chopped tomato

chopped mixed peppers

chopped onion

Grated cheese mix (Cheddar, mozzarella, swiss or gruyere)

2 slices cooked bacon

12 inch tortilla (tomato, spinach, whole wheat)

In a medium bowl mix eggs, tomato, peppers and onion, then scramble until cooked in medium-low frying pan.

Once the egg sets up, you can lay the tortilla over the top to warm, then remove it to add cooked bacon and cheese mixture to the eggs and cover until cheese melts.

Lay egg mix down the center of the wrap, fold up from the bottom until tortilla cradles the eggs, then fold in left and right sides until covered (like a baby’s diaper 🙂 )

I used to leave mine open on top and seal with a toothpick through the middle, but you can also close both ends and cut through the middle. The choice is yours!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer. It was a homey place. Many of my customers know each other (small town benefit) and would visit across the booths and even call out to Mom and I in the kitchen. I loved that vibe.
      You would have fit right in ❤

    Sounds delicious, Jacquie. We make eggs here A LOT. They’re so versatile. And delicious.

    I somehow missed that you owned a cafe. I’m sure it was a ton of work, but it sounds like fun. And (maybe I’m weird) but I’m always happy when a place serves liver and onions. That’s how I know the cooking is going to be homey and satisfying.

    1. Mmm, I love liver and onions! Yes, there are so many delicious ways to serve eggs. One of my customers came up with a dish we subsequently named the Pig and Pickle (a toasted denver with bacon and pickles) and people loved it!

    Jacquie I can tell it would be my hubs and daughter’s favorite too! When we were on holiday they were so happy to eat “salted” breakfast instead of “sugary” like we usually eat here 😉
