When it comes to grub in the morning, Monday thru Friday, I need something easy, fast, mobile, and high in protein. My pre-workout drink gets me thru my early morning work out session, but about 30 minutes after I’ve wrapped up and on my way to work, I’m absolutely starving.
Going thru the drive-thru, or microwaving something from the frozen isle just aren’t options for me. I’m always looking for different variations to be able to mix into my routine and I think these have definitely made the cut! These are so quick to throw together, you can make them the morning of, or multiple at a time for several days.
Sunday nights in our house, are “low and slow” 🙂 It’s our time to relax, get something slow-cooking on the stove or in the oven. While our dinner is roasting, it’s my time to fill up our counters with a mixture of fruits and veggies that I’m slicing up to go in lunches and breakfasts for the week. It’s very methodical for me, and it actually gets my mind right for the work week ahead going thru all of my Sunday steps!
In prepping these, I was very surprised at what little time it took do them, start to finish. Each rollup, takes about 4 minutes to make, and yes, that includes cooking time! Little bonus here is that you can make each one different, allowing you to have a new combination every day, simply by subbing out one ingredient! Peppers, spinach, cheese variation, ham, bacon, options are endless!
We have a local spot in town that makes fresh tortillas that are my go to, but I’ve also found some really great Gluten-Free ones at Aldi that I’ve become partial to as well, that I used in this round!
Serving Size: 1
1 tbsp milk
s/p to taste
1 piece of deli ham or bacon
2 tbsp of shredded cheese (or as desired)
several spinach leaves
1. Heat your non-stick pan to medium-low. I used a larger pan, about 9-inch, because the size of the tortillas I’m using are 8-inch. (the edges will slightly curl when you cook your egg, so a pan slightly larger is ok!)
2. Whisk your egg and milk together, season with salt and pepper as desired
3. Pour egg mixture into your pan, rotate the pan to get the mixture to fan out. You’ll know that it’s done, after the egg is set on top (you can use a lid to speed up this process as well). Takes 2-3 minutes
4. When the eggs are set, flip the pan over your tortilla. Center as needed and add you ham/bacon, cheese and any veggies desired
